Scooby Dooby Doo


The title refers both to the only noise I am able to make today – a kind of high pitched whiny plea and one of my activities.  I have baked biscuits for the boys!  Peanut butter and Sweet Potato cookies if you please!  The nicest thing is I have used Spelt flour which is supposedly less likely to cause issues of intolerance compared to wheat and since I know exactly what has gone in these I can eat them too …. Scoooby Dooooby Dooo … time for a Scooby Snack.


And here is Pup just after his first sample of the cooked biscuits.  He managed to sample a little raw dough and as you can see he had got Spelt Flour all up his nose!  However he hasn’t perfected the catchphrase yet so I limited him to just the one wee biscuit as a sample.


So why you are asking can I only make sounds like a cartoon dog – and a rather daft and cowardly one at that? because I have laryngitis from tree pollen getting inhaled too far!  I know it is hayfever related since the whole of the inside of my head is itchy – if only I could scratch inside my ears, behind my eyes and my nose I would feel so much better.  Actually if I could afford to buy some cough linctus, some cough sweets, a nasal (salt water) spray and a bottle of Actimist (yes I know that is name dropping but it is fabby stuff) eye spray I would feel fabulous!  As it is I have my beeswax hayfever balm to stop me inhaling any more pollen, some paracetamol to stop (well reduce) the discomfort in my larynx, a few menthol sweeties and some soft tissues … oh and water to bathe my eye with.

The worst bit after the discomfort and making a funny noise which confuses the Pup is that everything tastes of nothing – blackcurrant squash may as well be water, delicate Earl Grey has no chance of being detected and even baked beans taste of nothing … so erm …. I am embarrassed to admit that I don;’t actually know how good the Scooby Snacks taste!

Never mind I collected the litter pick and bag frame today so hopefully tomorrow I will be feeling  a little better and can go do something useful.  I really hop I am feeling much better on Wednesday when I am on a course all day and then at Community Council in the evening – that will test Pup and his crate time – he will be wanting extra Scooby Snacks!

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.
