In Other Words, compliment…

Thanks to Patricia for setting us today’s In Other Words challenge
Compliments that came my way in the past were usually back handed ones.
Best was from my first MIL who complimented me on my sponge cake.
‘It’s not bad,’ she said with a smile, then ruined it by adding ‘considering you made it.’
I’ve had a bit more practice now.



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.

    People can spoil the whole of the day by saying or doing something that they even don’t mean to!

    • Tact was not exactly her forte, but she was a pussy cat compared to some of the comments I got from Hubby’s Mum. She made me cry on a couple of occasions, but I never gave her the pleasure of seeing that.

    Some people just don’t know how to communicate or maybe they just say too much. Hopefully, someone pointed out her faux pas. Thanks for sharing.
