Stuck in The Snow

I am not going to say much today because someone ( a small black furry someone) is getting on my nerves!  It isn’t lack of exercise and it isn’t lack of food – he has had normal quotas of both – so he must just have got out of the wrong side of his bed this morning and the sooner he is back in it and can start afresh tomorrow the better!

I was expecting a supermarket delivery in the middle of the day – an early easter egg from my parents.  I got a text that it would be between 11 and 12 so I opted to wait for the dog walk until afterwards.  at 13;30 still no sign and I was getting a bit miffed to be honest. 13:45 a phone call from the driver apologising because he “has got stuck in the snow” really? REALLY? where is he coming from the north pole on a sled?  We have had snow for the past two weeks (it might not be that long I have lost count but it is days and days anyway) and the roads are all clear.  This morning the snow was melting – so how did this hapless individual get stuck in snow?

I simply asked how long he planned to be and he said he didn’t know so I indicated I would be taking the dogs out, having made them wait, and I would be gone an hour.  He eventually arrived at 14:20.  This may sound whiny but it isn’t meant to, I truly appreciate the gift, but what does my mother think I am going to do with 3kg of onions?  If you have any recipes that use up a kilo of onions please add them in the comments at the bottom …

How does one manage to get trails of drool on top of one’s own head? I tried and I cannot do it!

And having dribbled on top of one’s own head what possesses one to go sit in the mud during a blizzard to wait two hours for tea?  It is okay I did not let him sit there for two hours I made him come back in but he seriously made me let him out so he could sit in the mud in a snow storm … I do despair sometimes but I am not sure if it his sanity in question or mine!

And wouldn’t you know it – now I am just about ready for an early night to soothe my nerves a certain someone (you know the small black furry someone) is fast asleep and snoring on the sofa!

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.
