On this Father’s Day: a reblog

It’s Father’s Day this Sunday and I wrote this post in 2016 when we were still on the boat. Such a lot has happened since then. Humphrey, selling the boat and buying our bungalow in 2017, losing Mum in 2018 and Dick last year.
I remember this particular day and the peace it gave us.


It’s been a funny sort of day today, starting off with glorious sunshine and now we have a spattering of rain.
abbey insideEarlier we did a little bit of shopping and tried to get into the Abbey to light candles for our Dads. It was impossible to park, so we decided to come home, have our lunch, and go back this afternoon before the evening services.
Today I made a chicken curry, having rice as well as salad, and even a popadum or two at 2.5 syns each. My friend C had got a bargain yesterday as the market was closing and came home laden with bags of fresh fruit for just a couple of pounds, which she kindly shared with us. Peaches, nectarines, plums, and pears all went into a fresh fruit salad topped with natural yoghurt and cinnamon.

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.
