One-liner Wednesday -blessings in disguise

It is said that when one door closes, another door opens.

I’m hoping the new door is a great one for Mr D. Being made redundant is never a nice thing even if you are half expecting/wanting it.

I have to admire the company owners. I didn’t think they could sink much lower with their poor interpersonal skills but they exceeded my expectations, doing the deed by Skype and just before Christmas.

With a bit of luck, Karma will let Mr D watch what happens after he goes.

Today’s midweek one-liner/mini-rant is brought to you by Linda G Hill’s Wednesday Prompt. Pop on over hereĀ for the low-down on how to take part.

One-liner Wednesday – Witchy Wisdom

Woman walking in a mystic forest

“A witch ought never to be frightened in the darkest forest, because she should be sure in her soul, that the most terrifying thing in the forest was her.” -Terry Pratchet.

Something to think about on Halloween.

One-liner Wednesday… Pooh Sticks and life

Pup and I played Poohsticks on our walk today and it quickly turned into a mini life lesson.

My first stick entered the water but got stuck in an eddy, going nowhere even though it was in the stream. I feel like this sometimes.

My second stick went further but got tangled up in the weeds at the side. Still in the stream but unable to move forwards. My paid job can feel like the weeds to me.

Would the third stick be the charm? Nearly. It landed in the stream, not tangled or stuck going round in circles, but not going particularly fast.

And then it got a helping paw… pup gave it a good nudge and it was soon floating merrily along.

Sometimes we all need a nudge from unexpected helpers.
