It’s Snow Joke!

Firstly it is no laughing matter that I made things worse last night on my way to bed … having prized Pup out for a pee I sent him back to his crate and on the way into my room I caught the sleeve of my mohair oversize jumper on the door handle.  I kept going the jumper held me back and I ended up on my knees on the laminate floor.  Pup had already got into his crate so he was fine but then I called him to me to reassure him and he bounced on me.  So I went to bed with two bruised knees and a shaken body to go with my cricked neck!

Secondly it was no laughing matter to get up this morning and find that the Snow had been turned on again … it has snew all day and added about 15 cm to what we already had.  The road has been hard to keep clear (hopefully we should have one more gritter pass before 11 so the road should then be okay providing it doesn’t snow any more.  And despite this the buses have kept running all day pretty much to time … well done Forfar Depot.

Thirdly … I forgot to tell you about this on Wednesday!  The woman at the supermarket checkout looked at my food as I put it on the conveyor and said “Oh are you stocking up in case you get snowed in?”  Now I know she was just making small talk but it was a gross assumption – that was actually two weeks food I was buying !

Here’s the rest of our snowy day – you know where I spent my free time since Dog and Pup are Snowholics!

Getting close to 60 cm of snow has fallen in the week!

And finally … Pup the Slipper Pointer!

“It’s Okay I has found the naughty runaway slipper” “Where is it Pup?” “I is pointing it for you” NB Pup put it there in the first place LOL

I tell you living with a Pointerdor is snow joke – he is always up to something in  the snow!  Off to tuck him up in his cosy bed for the night.

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.
