Take Seven: 23rd October

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:
baggage, brave, butterfly, cherub, choice, colour, cover, crisp, flair, hurt, inoculate, instant, jab, meal, needle, paper, prim, scan, tap, true, twin.

Trina felt far from brave the instant she stepped off the train. She removed her case from the baggage cart and scanned the crowd for her employer.
It was a crisp, cold morning with hardly any colour to the sky, and her feet hurt. The prim lace up shoes had been a practical choice but they pinched her toes and jabbed her heel. Hopefully she could cover her pain and stretch them a little once she was ensconced in her new position as Nanny to four year old twins.
She would be responsible for  meals, arranging inoculations, general daycare and dealing with any necessary paperwork with her usual efficient flair.
True to form, trying to find her employer in the melee was like looking for a needle in a haystack.
She felt a light tap on her arm. She looked down into two huge blue pools in a cherub face and took the offered picture of a butterfly.
‘I did it for you!’ the little boy said with aplomb, and her heart melted.

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.
