My Front Garden (ROFL)

I am not  a girl who has a thousand and two friends … I know many individuals as acquaintances and I will talk with/listen to anyone BUT my friends are a select group of people who have proven their love and loyalty (and I hope feel that flows both ways?)

One of those funny things that happens sometimes in life happened today and it filled me with joy and friend appreciation.  I have shared with two of those friends (individually) some information about what is for now going to be known as Project Tick Tock (this is a plan for a business and there are certain commercial confidentialities so I am using that as a codename for now).  I got up to an e-mail from one friend saying that she was off to buy a lottery ticket so they could come as a family to visit Project Tick Tock.  I got to my CV Building session and saw an e-mail from the other friend telling me that she dreamed about counting sheep and that because there was symbolism for coming into money/property she was also off to buy a lottery ticket.

Anyway I have followed up with each of them only to get a reply that the sheep will “always be here for me but will not be so obvious as to camp in my front garden”  This made me laugh out loud – my front garden is the busy road!  Which reminds me about an incident last night which I didn’t relate to you and since I have had a very positive emotional rollercoaster day I am going to do an extra post tomorrow but wanted to just tell you about the incident of the horse in my front garden!

As you all know I love horses – we talk to them every single day.  However having alighted from the bus yesterday evening I found a horsebox parked across the road form my house with a slightly distressed looking woman and a horse clearly unhappy because there was much neighing and kicking.  I wanted to get in to check on the dogs and didn’t want Pup to be hearing distressed horse and getting upset.  The dogs had their tea and pees ad then I went back to the front porch to go and offer any assistance.  There in the middle of the road was a policeman holding the horses lead rein and soothing it while the towing vehicle was swapped from the loose box.

I bumped into my neighbour this evening who raised the subject and said he had gone in and said to his wife – you are not going to believe what is going on out there … Cathy now has a loose horse kicking and screaming outside her house; weren’t the roadworks enough?  Horse and woman and police person all lived to tell their tales (pun intended) and to be added to my blog cast!  We don’t do things by halves in this sleepy little hamlet.

So there you are I have had a busy, emotionally intense day – all with good positive outcomes – but I need to reflect some and then I will do you a Project Tick Tock post as a bonus tomorrow.

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.
