Once in a life Time

Pam over at Butterfly Sand did a post on Time which makes you think. You can view it here
I wrote this post about 6 months after I started my blog. It still holds true for me. Time is precious. Don’t waste it.


I woke up this morning, and as is my usual habit, automatically looked at the illuminated display on our digital clock radio. It was early. Five thirty to be exact, but according to the dog’s body clock, it was time for a wee.

Whenever I visited my parents and stayed over, I slept on the floor in their lounge. The timer for their central heating was a ticker, a steady one second interval click, comforting in its way as it lulled me to sleep.
In their dining room, the old Westminster chime clock was still sitting on the piano and every fifteen minutes would sing out its quartered melodies then bong the relevant number on the hour. It was strange how it stopped at the exact time my Grandfather died, and despite being fully wound, didn’t start again for another twenty four hours.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
