Rules of Sick Puppies

Apparently next time I am unwell I am allowed to trash someone else’s precious book …

Torn Book

Pup had the runs during the night and opted to sleep the rest of the night in Big Dog Bed, which Dog very kindly accommodated.  Then he had another upset at 7 this morning so he has been on the rice diet today.  He doesn’t approve and he has been out of sorts, bumptious and grumpy with the end result that he took it out on my book.

I on the other hand got about 25 minutes sleep because I was listening out for him, so I am tired and grumpy … bumptious? not so much!  End result – I did not rip up a book … I mopped, cleaned floors, cleaned bowls, put water down, cooked rice, made chicken stock and looked at the depressingly slow rate of new job adverts on the Job Centre site.

Pup has had supper and is now snoring … before long he will be snoring in his digloo and I will be getting an early night.  Fortunately no demanding people encountered today and the rain was not as bad as predicted.  But I am frustrated because I was going to make the few Christmas cards that I need to send and now I will be up to the wore for last posting times.  I won’t be able to print my seaglass trees so they will have to be used next year and I will have to papercraft the cards from my stash … it will feel odd since I usually make one unique design that is only ever used for one Christmas season.  People who can get an online card will be getting the design featuring Dog and Pup – but you will have to wait for it to appear here …

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
