Fandango Story Starter # 11

Peeking through the window, her surprise turned to horror when…


Tim was indecisive about his next step. He asked Dora for advice regarding his decision. Dora, practical and pragmatic as ever told him that relocating to another city was not wise. He may be getting a fancy job title, but the pay and benefits weren’t great. And the cost of moving would offset any advantage he might have.

After having a long discussion, Tim agreed with her and decided to reject the new job offer and stick to the one he had for the last 5 years.

So it came as a great shock to her when he came home the next day and informed her that he had resigned from his current job and would be traveling the next day to join the new job.

And what about the discussion we had?” she ask, irritated.

I did a rethink and took advice from a friend, who told me that this offer is too good to miss!” Said, Tim

Well, in that case, you will be responsible for all expenses and botheration of moving. I’ll join you when you have set up the new house” Dora replied and stomped out of the room.

      1. Hey Sadje – are you planning on writing a sequel then 🙂

        Coming to the end of week 2, more bushed than l was last week – slowly getting there 🙂

        How are you? How was your move?

          1. Good to hear, l am looking forward to the end of this month. This move has mostly done me in so l am eager to see it over. It’s been the garden work that has done the muscle damage and fatigue the most in addition to everything else l do daily.

            Glad your move went smoothly.

              1. Sadly l can’t stop till it’s done Sadje – we have to shift the majority of the garden ourselves, it is that simple.

                Suze can only do a certain amount due to the tablets she is on and she can be at times somewhat dropsy.

              2. But also, my new business involves a lot of heavy work with gardening, mostly compost /wormery farms and so on. It’s because Suze’s garden is mostly pots.


                  1. I’ll not hire anyone to do my stuff, but l have managed to finally get a van man here next Tuesday to sort out the heavier items in Suze’s garden. I have never used him before, and l hope he’ll be ok.

                    1. I certainly hope so Sadje. I was just saying to Suze this morning, this is the last week and l will be glad when it’s over 🙂
