Time to Write: Money

Rachel gives us the word Money to write about this week.

All of my working life has revolved around money.
If I wasn’t balancing the physical stuff, I was analyzing it on paper.
In banking, the number of Os on a spreadsheet is endless, but it’s like living in another world because actually having that kind of money is well beyond my frugal way of life.
Don’t get me wrong, we do very well thank you very much, but money has never been available on tap, so things have to be planned and budgeted for, No Sugar Daddy or Oil Well to be turned up to bail me out.

We’ve often fantasized about what we’d do if we won The Big One, you know, millions on the lottery. First and foremost I’d send at least a million to Bro so that he can officially retire and relax, go fishing, get a bigger boat, have a holiday, without having to worry about the funding.
As for us, we’d be out of here, away from the hustle, bustle and noise of city living. Plus we’d have the means to get all our health issues fixed and have a good private doctor at our disposal for anything else that might crop up.

I don’t want a lot, which is just as well as we’re unlikely to have it, but enough to tick over, with a bit to spare without having to struggle would certainly ease the pressure.
I often say we are richer in other things, but sadly ‘other things’ don’t pay the bills or put food on the table.

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.

    Yeah. It’d be nice to help out my kids and retire too. I don’t want anything luxurious; that would be a burden. Just a comfy little place, a massage every few days, and time to read/write. Bliss!

    It’s a dream that we all dream. But a very few can actually get that much money
