Friday Fictioneers 13th November

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers challenge, and this week she has chosen a photo by Dale Rogerson. Thank you ladies!
Nine year old Tim would have loved to go outside and play in the snow, but it wasn’t to be, or at least not this year.
It had been one thing after another with the majority of the year spent in lockdown and avoiding everybody. Even his friends couldn’t come to visit.
He could blame Covid for some of it, but it was his own silly fault for breaking his legย  tripping over the cat and falling downstairs!

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.

    That’s the perfect way to top off this year!

    And I’ll bet the cat walked away, tail twitching, without a scratch ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG! Poor Tim! โค

  7. oldentimes says:

    Tim has had it rough, was the cat black? May the next year be better, for the whole world.

  8. As if things weren’t bad enough! Nice one Di.

    I can blame only myself… and a landlord who couldn’t be bothered to fasten down the carpet on the steps. this story hit close to home. my feeties are much better, but still ache. At least I can wear shoes and walk with only a slight limp now. Not that I have anywhere to walk to. For the first time since back before April, I’m sitting in the library.

  10. Dale says:

    Ah jeez… it is the capper for the year, isn’t it? Poor little guy.

  11. Oy! This sounds like he needs a break (or not … ) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. 2020 is certainly a bad year and especially for your character! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. ahtdoucette says:

    Or … it could be the cat’s fault. I’m sure things will get better!

  14. Ouch! Falling down the stairs makes me cringe. Well, that’s 2020 for you. The snow will probably still be around by the time his leg heals.

    • I can remember years ago falling down the stairs almost every other day following gym and PE sessions. The teacher concerned pushed me harder than everyone else and my leg muscles were stiff the following mornings. Luckily I didn’t break anything.

  15. Poor mite, a bit harsh calling it his own fault for tripping over the cat. Unless of course he wasn’t looking because he had his head buried in his phone or something.
