Woke up this morning very early I may add – curtsy of my 2 nieces, with their little noses almost touching mine, with little whispers off “We’re hungry”. How sweet, makes a change from Noah’s wet runny nose. What a beautiful sunny morning, the sun is shinning so brightly. It makes a lovely change, as for the past few days we have had rather a lot of wind and rain. The 1st thing I did, well after I fed the little hungry mites, was going on the computer checking emails and then logging onto Facebook. I came across this little post, well I just had to click and carry on reading. I thought I would share this with you all.

After a very long day at work, I arrived home to find a lovely card from a little old lady that I work for. Well in saying I work for her is an understatement of our relationship. I go to her house once a fortnight to help her to do the things she finds difficult to do – but that doesn’t mean she is frail, far from it. It doesn’t feel like work. She is like the grandmother I never had growing up and I love her to bits. I have known this lady for nearly 12 years. I share my thoughts and feelings with her and she is always interested in what is happening in my life. She has been there through the up & downs, and throughout always encouraging and giving me friendly advice. She has really built up my self- esteem. She never thinks of herself, only of others. A kindred spirit, and the reason for the card; to wish me good luck for tomorrow as I have a hospital appointment – a procedure that I’m not looking forward to and if I have to be honest -I have been feeling sick with dread. Isn’t it wonderful for others to have you in their thoughts?
We share secrets, we laugh and even cry,
We have so much in common,
Concerns, likes and dislikes.
Ours is a relationship joined by
Tender velvet chains that link our
similar dreams of life and love.
A gentle intuition guides us in our
individual struggles to succeed
at the things we pursue, to stand
out from the crowd.
In you I have found so much of myself,
Including many of the same
Insecurities and philosophies.
Complete inner-peace and happiness,
These are the things I wish for you,
in the present and in the future
because you are my kindred spirit.
So I am going to take her good wishes, try to relax and get a goodnight rest.
Well what a busy week its been, I feel like If been chasing my tail, roll on in 3 weeks time when I will have 12 days off work. I find myself jumping on the computer most days to check my blog, just to see if any new people are following, and then I think, I haven’t anything interesting to actually put on this site, because all I’ve done is work, clean the house, food shopping, short walk or play with Noah or go to my dance class- which to be honest feeling rather guilty as I haven’t spent much time with Noah, well not enough quantity of time as I would like.
When I don’t have to work that is.
I’ve actually had a great weekend, very productive. Dinner party Friday night, the food was amazing, and a great way of catching up with friends. Saturday; despite working part of the day managed to spend some time playing at the park with Noah and rounding the day of with a salsa event in the evening. Packing away the summer clothes to make room for the winter wardrobe. Love Autumn time its my favourite season. Then Sunday was spent at Dalkeith Country Park. I had a great time with Noah and getting to grips working the new camera.
Here’s a little selection of pictures I took with my new camera of our time spent there:
Wish there was more days in a weekend. Why did God have to finish everything in 6 days and only allowing 1 day of rest. I feel another busy week is just about to begin. Roll on next weekend – thinking a train ride for Noah’s next adventure.
Saw this and just had to share it. It makes me think of Noah. From a very early age (Well as soon as he was old enough to jump on the bed) – he likes to sit on my bed and watch me go out the gate. It has become a habit for me to turn round – blow a kiss and wave. I thought I’m sure all my friends think I’m mad. Until one day when 2 of my friends came to visit and when we all left the house together. They too turned round, looked up at the window and waved. One of the friends said “did we really just wave to Noah. Yip even they can’t resist waving too. My daughter has admitted that all her friends do the same.
He will often be at the window when I return, this makes me smile and I wave. He will come down to the garden as I put my bike away in the shed. After a hard day at work, it’s nice to sit down with a cup of coffee and Noah will come and snuggle into me for a cuddle. So no matter how hard the day has been, or how tired I feel – It cheers me up. Who would have thought just how therapeutic having a dog would be.
Let me know your thoughts,send me your comments on how you say hello and goodbye to your pets. :).
Thought I would share this quote that I came across.
So all you animal lovers out there, when your having a bad day – remember when you open your hearts to animals – YOUR A SPECIAL PERSON!
