As a teenager, I was easily embarrassed, something Other Brother exploited with his constant teasing which of course he found hilariously funny.
I was also very naive and had the trendiest pair of rose coloured glasses imaginable.
Failed romances, being hurt, lied to etc soon put pay to that, and although sometimes I would feel the inevitable flush of self consciousness creep into my face, I would laugh it off.
In later years, I could hold my own and today I can blame that tell tale flush on my post cancer meds.
But on one particular day in 2002 I was embarrassed beyond belief and have never forgotten it, or forgiven them.
This was not something I did, but the behaviour and inappropriate dress of a family member at a special event. Their language was not befitting for the occasion, and I was not only embarrassed to know them, but ashamed because we were related.
Sadly, I was not the only one for whom the day was spoilt, and it was that which, to me, was unforgivable.
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.

thats awful that you got so embarrassed, and that that family member spoiled the day for you!
Long time ago now, but it spoilt the entire day. I have little, if anything, to do with them now
That incident lives in your memory in a really bad way. Some people have no sense of what’s appropriate or not. I’m story to have brought up bad memories.
No problem Sadje. I’d already written about it years ago. I still have no time for the individual even though it was nearly 20 years ago.
Long memory. I forget things
As do we all!!
I forget them quickly.
*nods in sympathy* I’ve seen things at weddings (one particular one of a coworker) was awful. The bride’s father got rip roaring drunk and got into a fight with the Best Man and the Groom. The police were called. I heard later that by the time the police arrived the altercation had spread and about a dozen people were arrested. I left as soon as the voices started to be raised….
Don’t blame you.
