May Musings

May is a busy month for us, or rather me as there is quite a lot going on.
Other Brother’s wedding anniversary is on the 8th, ours is the 10th, my birthday the 12th, and Mum’s on the 22nd.
Today though marks the 24th anniversary of losing my Dad, and we shall be lighting a candle for him here. It’s not a religious thing, just a personal tribute to a man who I was privileged to have as my father.

Dad loved nature, and had a knack with animals and birds alike, his patience unlimited.
I don’t have the patience, but do love nature and have a way with dogs, something I inherited perhaps from him, along with my gift for music.

I wonder what he would make of current events? I think he would probably be angry and concerned for his family, especially my Mum. They were married for almost 46 years, and we celebrated their sapphire wedding anniversary the August before by taking them out to a Cantonese restaurant, unbeknown to us that it would be the last time we were together as a family.

Mum joined him two years ago, and I could imagine him waiting for her on’ The other side’ asking what kept her. She would probably have playfully punched his arm before tucking her hand in his and going to wherever they are now. I’m happy with that thought, that they are in a place far away from all this, forever safe, together and whole.

Thinking of you both Dad ❤ ❤ ❤


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.

    How nice, and what a lovely photo 💜

    • That was taken in 1975 for their Silver Wedding Anniversary. The gorilla is Chopper, and the last thing I gave my Dad when I shared the helicopter ride experience Hubby had arranged for my 40th.
