#JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt: January 18th

My turn today and I’ve put forward COMPANIONSHIP.
I’ve never actually lived on my own, not even when I was divorced or when the following relationship failed, so I can’t speak from experience on that.
However, I know of several people who do and most have pets for companionship. I can understand that, as the thought of someone waiting for you when you get home is very warming.
I can remember seeing ads in the paper for companions, someone to share theatre visits, outings, meals out, holidays, and I suppose in a way Hubby’s ad all those years ago was similar as he had grown tired of the odd looks when asking for a table for one, purchasing a single cinema ticket, or going into a pub alone.
Both of us were coming out of sour relationships and just wanted friendship and companionship without the hassle of anything else.
Who could have foreseen where it would lead?
He’s my best friend, companion, husband, confidante, lover, soul mate and the other worn out slipper that makes us a pair.
Come May 10th, we’ll have been together 30 years, 28 of those as Husband and Wife.
He laughs and says he should be getting time off for good behaviour.


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.
