JusJoJan 2023 : Day 24

Linda is our host and Astrid has provided the word prompt of IDEAL

Funny how our dreams of the IDEAL partner, home, pet, holiday, job or whatever rarely materialise.
It took a while, but I eventually found my soul mate,
home would have surprisingly been on the boat as life was so simplistic and leisurely,
(that’s us in the background, not the rowing boat!)
pet would always be a dog and Maggie is a hard act to follow, but Maya is coming along nicely bless her,

holiday would be NZ in 2010 when I went to visit Bro for two months on my own, and I had the best job ever as a financial analyst for the bank as it was all figurework.


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.

    My IDEAL holiday was in Scotland, staying at my late Uncle’s place in Dunbar, near the north coast of East Lothian. I visited him by train four times in total, staying for two or three weeks at a time.
    He was born in Cornwall but moved to Scotland late in life and married his second (or third?) wife, who was a lovely lady but it took me a while to understand her :).
    Edinburgh was about 30 miles west and is an amazing city. I also enjoyed riding down in his car along the east coast to Berwick-on-Tweed, sometimes we’d go as far down as Newcastle.
    Dunbar was a quiet friendly town with a cobbled main street. I do miss those trips.

    • We had some holidays in Scotland when we were kids and climbed the Scott Monument in Princes Street and also the Stirling Monument with its spiral staircase and rooms off it every so often to stop you getting giddy. I think I counted the steps, about 240 if I remember. When we got to the top we looked down onto the car park and the family car…………. which Dad had locked the key in! Fond memories of Loch Lomond and Loch Ness. No Nessie though.
