Take Seven 10th April

It’s Friday! Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

Our words were:
bank, bi-centennial, challenge, cry, estuary, fun, garden, harmony, humdrum, laugh, lone, management, memory, needle, pack, paddle, phobia, reed, schedule, think, trip

These days were a far cry from when she worked in the bank. Her time management then was second to none and she was always up to the challenge of meeting her deadlines.
Now, her life was pretty humdrum and the only thing she had to schedule or think about was what to make for dinner.
She had fond memories of packed lunches and fun trips with her brother. They would paddle in the sea or the river estuary when the tide was out, and he’d make her laugh as she tried, and failed, to make a reed sing by blowing through it.
Happy days as they were in perfect harmony with each other, days before agoraphobia had taken over her life after he died.
It was the bi-centennial of the village garden fete and she had a lone entry in the craft section. She was clever with a needle with an eye for detail and her care worker had suggested she take part, so she had taken a photograph of a particularly happy day and made a tapestry of it.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
