Your line for this week is:

Tamsin’s heart drummed frantically as she tore through her pack, her books, and the messy desk– where was it?!

Here’s my take:

Tamsin’s heart drummed frantically as she tore through her pack, her books, and the messy desk– where was it?!
Technology was wonderful, when you knew how to use it, and where to find it!
Why oh why had she put everything on one chip? Why hadn’t she taken a back up?
Why hadn’t she written it down in her old diary?
Damn! Her first date in months and not only couldn’t she find the guy’s name or  phone number, but she couldn’t remember if it was the White Swan or White Hart she was supposed to meet him in after work!


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.
