Sadje over at keepitalive has nominated me to tell a story based on the following photograph.
She looked at the cake in dismay.
It was her favourite, sticky chocolate with cream filling, a rich dark bomb just waiting to explode in her mouth.
Just the thought made her mouth water, but such delights were loaded.
She could have cried, but then her Mum came in with a handful of sparklers and stuck them in the top.
As she lit them, she grinned.
‘The diet can start tomorrow. These will keep those calories at bay.’
‘Well, that’s one way of burning them off!’
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.
A wonderful story. I wish we had those sparkles. Burning off the calories. Love it.
I’d have a blow torch the way I’m going!
Send one over to me too. 🤣
