Let me tell you a Story

Melanie over at sparksfromacombustiblemind has kindly nominated me to tell a story based on this picture.
Picture I believe by Lilly Higgins.

“It was a beautiful day. The sun shone, everything went smoothly, even the Best Man didn’t show us up with a gawdy colourful speech. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought he’d been replaced by a clone with a sense of humour.
The bridesmaids were so cute, little flower girls really, all carrying their posies. There were no fights or tearful tantrums, even when a bee got a bit too close to Sally’s nose.
You would have loved the flowers, all wild and picked from hedgerows.
We went to the local chippy for lunch. Brian had done us proud, decking out the cafe with bunting, pretty paper tablecloths and flowers on the table with the salt and sauces. The guy from the local paper was there taking photos as our wedding party arrived and walked in all posh like. It was such fun.
I brought you these. It’s my bouquet and I’d thought you’d like them. I’ve put them in a little vase on the table here, so you’ll see them when you wake up.”

Leah kissed her mother’s papery cheek as the machines blipped and beeped.
“I love you Mum. Please come back to us.”


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
