FOWC with Fandango — Lobby

We had a lobby at the bank………. it was decked out with a few chairs and a coffee table as visitors waited to be met by a secretary or supervisor to be shown up to the relevant office.
My Mum got to know that lobby quite well. She knew which was the comfiest chair, where to sit out of the draught from the doors and the messengers always offered her a cup of tea or coffee as she waited for me to finish at 5pm to go home.
Mum was independent in those days, and would meet me for lunch every Wednesday, but once every three weeks or so, she would come to the office and wait for me in the lobby so that she could come stay for the weekend.
I loved those times.

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.
