Parcel Post

If you have been reading since the start you might recall me saying it would be good to have  a pocket bird guide with me on my travels ?  My Dad recommended this one but it was out of print.  Anyway Amazon now trade in second hand books and I picked this one up for a bargain £2; my little easter egg to myself.  It was described as being in good condition but it is in virtually pristine condition so I am thrilled.  No more having to try and get internet access to identify that mystery splodge on my camera screen out in the field.

Also in that parcel was some special glue to fix my walking boots.

Then another parcel – for the boys this time – they now have  a month worth of food in their boxes; sadly it wasn’t their favourite courier lady with he biscuits today but it was a very nice man courier who was lovely with them as they tried to steal the parcel from the.

With a long walk yesterday and knowing the courier should call today I only planned a wee walk later on – in fact we never got out for  a walk but the boys don’t seemed bothered.  Probably a good thing because like what goes up must come down – what goes in a Pup must come out!   You will always know your dog has eaten a bunny by the very furry quality of the dog’s poo!

Linking the dogs and the pigeon feather rosettes we have found twice it is likely those were fresh kills by either a goshawk or  a sparrowhawk … I know we have at least two sparrowhawks in the area.  A buzzard would be more likely to take carrion rather than kill a pigeon and a fox would bite the feathers off rather than plucking the bird; finally (and sorry for the gruesome but it interests me) the feathers had no blood on the ends of then which tells me it was from a fresh kill.

I got another surprise today – apart form the parcels … when I cast an eye over my reader stats I found that yesterday I had had my most reads in one day ever and the vast majority were by one person.  I don’t get the very specific detail but I get some clues.  Curious?

I am going to leave it there because Pup is restless and I cannot concentrate on what I want to write …

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.
