FOWC with Fandango — Reckoning

Fandango’s word choice today is Reckoning

The day of reckoning was April 26th 1991.
A day when the money came in, but there wasn’t enough.
The Reckoning was all a matter of priorities.
Estate Agents took their cut, then the mortgage and house loans were paid off.
A previously agreed figure plus half a year’s interest for pratting about causing unnecessary delay was sent to the Other Party.
Out of the remainder, which was less than half the proceeds, two personal debts for a failed venture and Solicitors fees had to be forthcoming.
There was a shortfall of some thirty thousand, the only available option, bankruptcy.
Oh yes, a day of reckoning indeed due to poor money management, big ideas and bad decisions.


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.

  1. This is so scary as it could happen to us all.

    • I’ve been close to bankruptcy twice and therefore used to living frugally. I’m not exactly mean or tight with money, just careful and try not to waste anything.

    Oh crikey Di. This sounds painful!
