Storm Damage …

Not a lot to say today – I did chores, ate, fed the dogs and we did a dig walk.  Then I took the camera for  walk of it’s own … to explore a new piece of woodland that might be good for Pup ad his training.  The paths were very boggy and muddy in places and in part of it the snow was still thick on the ground.  The trees were mostly beech with a few conifers and mostly huge old trees with lots of whippy little saplings sown into the gaps.  This monster caught my eye …

It had this growing on it … where the scar from the torn off trunk was …

Is it just me or is that a mouth gobbling up the tree with a curvy top lip?

And this made me smile – someone has been making a camp here …

In other news Toxic’s truce didn’t last long … the colleague who wanted me to sort out  a problem has reportedly told Toxic he is fed up of everyone asking him about it.  Toxic phoned me to tell me to leave his colleague alone and I told him colleague needs to stop talking about it if he doesn’t want to be bothered.  I do not for one minute believe the colleague said that to Toxic – Toxic has said similar things before which turn out to be his version of what was said – it is like dealing with small boys in short pants at kindergarten.  Have also told Toxic that Bears that dump in the wood should take their favourite brand of loo roll and clean up their mess … sure you know the adverts for this product?

I forgot to pop the leccy blanket on this evening so please think nice warm thoughts for a few minutes so I am quickly cosy in my bed?

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.
