It’s A Special Day?

I hope that for one reason or another it is a special day for every one of you … this is my 200th post here on this blog so that feels quite special, tomorrow I finally have a job interview – so that feels a bit special – and on Friday I am meeting a Social Enterprise expert and someone who I know by reputation but have never met – that feels really special AND both tomorrow and Friday I will be on my beloved buses.  Speaking of which one of the drivers who had been in bother has been reinstated so that is quite special too.

However, the special day I really had in mind is my friend who has her birthday – happy birthday hugs to you all that way away; I know it will be bittersweet with your recent grief but I know you have taken comfort in the support offered you in our little creative world and in the love of close family.  I too am with you in thought … be grateful I am not there physically since I am still sniffly, wiffly and wheezing!

Although I have shared all those reasons for today being special I have not done that much … because I was working on my pitch for Friday’s meeting.  I did have the press on the phone – wanting a quote form the Community Council so I have put that in motion.  I also did take the boys for their walk which was good until the return journey when Pup decided to go back to pulling on his lead so our progress was cumbersome.  To be fair to him since I am wheezy and off colour I was probably not as calm as usual and I must make extra effort tomorrow and Friday when they will be left for a few hours each day. We did meet a collie coming the other way as we approached home and I was able to take a nip down a driveway and even though Dog did see it he never made a sound so I was very pleased with him.

I am going to finish there – hot blackcurrant has quieted my coughing for a while but I have run out of steam to finish a creative something off to post here too.

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.
