Sum it up in two words……………….. hated it!
Well, Grammar School anyway.

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.

    Me too–despised the bulk of those relentlessly demanding years.

    • Five years of being ridiculed and mentally drained by staff. The School of Life has taught me more!

        I noticed somewhere, maybe in your About, that you’re only 4 yrs younger than I–and I think school was as tough in our day, as in the current atmosphere of bullying, etc, just different. Yes, Life is the consummate teacher–and I think I learned more from reading books on whatever subject struck my fancy. I worked in a library for 3 years, which was like being in a candy store everyday 🙂

      • I was born in 1956 and was a school librarian as it gave me a means of escape! It didn’t helped that my sister and I overlapped by a year so I was always in her shadow as she was good at needlework, cookery, languages and sport. I enjoyed writing and music but was never encouraged.
        I read a lot years ago but can’t seem to settle to it so much over the past 6 years or so.

        A school librarian would be a great escape! Yep, I was born in ’52, so we’re not far apart 🙂
