Sleep Deprivation Lethargy … Crunchy Mouse … And an Awful Noise!

I did sleep last night – although fitfully – I think because I was just so exhausted!  If anything that has left me feeling worse than no sleep at all so today has been a half hearted effort to say the least!  That by the way is Dog’s friend who we call Ginger just settling down for an afternoon nap – I could happily have joined her!

I eventually stirred myself to take the boys for a walk once the fierce morning sun had gone behind the clouds; and whilst I pulled on my boots Pup decided to have a little snack – my wireless mouse!  My poor mouse now has two serious dents and other chew marks and although it works I think it will need replaced.  As he got it down off the computer desk he managed to click on my e-mail; open an e-mail; open a weblink within it and switch to an already open spreadsheet!!  He also helped himself to an SD card which appears in tact but the case it was in has had it.

Our walk was nothing special to write home about – the beasts were snoozing, I waved to and was waved at by the owner of the Estate as we walked down the lane and the only really unusual thing about the walk was the dreadful noise we heard as we walked towards the burn.  I fully expected when we got round the corner to see something strangling a rabbit – it sounded like a death scream and it certainly got Pup on his toes.  All I saw was a black box on a stalk in the middle of the field – it must be an electronic scarecrow … hope it works because it certainly filled me with a disconcerted feeling!

I had a mooch into Kirriemuir to see how busy it was with Bonfest in full swing … but almost everyone was in one or other of the pubs.  So here are some pretty pictures instead:

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.
