Paula’s Three Things Challenge: 24th February

Paula has given us rabbit, bathrobe, kaleidoscope to work with today.

Mum loved rabbits, but whenever we were out in the car and saw them on the roadside, she missed them. We used to say they’d gone to get their fluorescent vests just for her.

One day, we decided to take her a rabbit of her very own, and arrived early, so she answered the door in her bathrobe. Hubby was holding the rabbit under his jacket but she was adamant she couldn’t keep it as the dog would kill it. We reassured her that it would be perfectly OK and handed it to her.
She was both amused and pleased to take the little garden statue we’d seen and purchased with her in mind, but it didn’t go outside. Instead, it took pride of place in the front lobby where it caught the sun in a kaleidoscope of colours.

BOATS (based on a true story) :


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
