Why? How? It Always Happens to Me!

No pictures again today – I did take some but I haven’t had time to upload them – so something for you to look forward to tomorrow.

So on the online learning thing I am doing our teams were assigned today; I hadn’t seen the announcement until I read a post in the forum saying that a person was in a team and the team lead was “the excellent Cathy” … this always happens – I just be me (helpful, calm and patient) and the next thing I know I am the leader … would one of you take a good look at my back and see if there is a sign there telling the world to make me a leader …

… anyway I teased the poster that I already had a “nickname” but that whilst I would try to live up to excellent there is no I in team and so we would all swim (or sink) together …

… since then two of the team are still incommunicado which when we have just five days to collaborate online and submit an assignment isn’t long -so tomorrow if they are still a no show it will be a team of two!  At least the team leader hasn’t gone AWOL as n one of the other teams apparently!

What amazes me are the number of folk who are unhappy that they are assigned a team rather than choosing who they work with … I mean it is not like they have to get married or anything – it is a week’s commitment to cooperate; I love opportunities like that … am I odd?

The day started off on a sad note with a fatal road traffic incident in the town – lots of emergency service time taken up and road closure – the works.  On the plus side Pup and Dog walked past a garden where two yappy terriers lie and although Pup was pulling to get through the hedge to say “hi” Dog was silent – if a little skippy!  So he earned them more smelly fish for their tea – it is great I only have to say the words “smelly fish” to remind him to calm down.

After that I popped into Forfar to get my Disclosure done for my Steps for Health volunteering; exchanged a brief half a sentence with Weather Guru, had a light lunch and then went to visit Evelyn.  Back to Forfar for a quick supermarket visit and then home to feed the boys – and do my homework.

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.
