Another Quickie …

… not what you are thinking those at the back with the mucky minds! A quick blog post because I forgot I would be out at a Community Meeting and on top of that I have a raw throat, a sniffly nose (hayfever? since I have been out round trees the past few days) and a beginner headache!  Oh and I need a wee but if I get off my desk stool I will probably not get back to finish this so typing very fast!

Despite the pouring rain – I got on full waterproofs for today’s walk and didn’t take the big camera – Spring is marching on apace – here is the primrose update form last weeks leaves to these buds … and some full flowers:

By lunchtime so much water had come from the sky that the dykes and the burn were in spate – this branch of the bur was almost at a stand still yesterday but look at the torrent today?

I didn’t get a picture but on the way back Pup did a water retrieve to get himself a plastic bottle and then both dogs needed a really good rub down with the towel when we got back.

Other than the dogs I have packed quite alot in today – half a job application filled in, a tutorial written and then been along to the Community meeting – which I will tell you about tomorrow.  Hope my boots are dry for tomorrow and the rain has stopped!

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.
