Sterling Silver


It was a beautiful spring day, and she felt a little sleepy in the sun that graced the afternoon sky as she relaxed after her day’s work.
The garden trellis was the perfect support for the honeysuckle she had just put in.
Such were the frills of retirement. No more moans about dressing for the office as she could wear a T-shirt and cut offs which exposed her sterling silver naval piercing that her colleagues were in total ignorance about. Hardly a cohesive image for a sixty year old business executive!

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.

    Love this one! I’m a big fan of keeping work and social circles very far apart! I never want to have “worlds collide” and have to explain certain things to colleagues. Hehe!

    • I remember my work colleagues being totally gobsmacked after the firm’s Christmas party when a car pulled up and I got in saying ‘fifty quid for a good time?’……………..
      I should point out Hubby was the driver and they’d never seen him before. I had some interesting looks on Monday!!

    I always hated working in an office setting, having to pretend I was someone I wasn’t. To a degree, though, the same applied when I was working as a bartender in a casino.
