sun shines on Main Street Ballinamore
After listening to my dear readers suggestions yesterday … I made a hot toddy or two (thanks Mags for the brandy … great neighbour) … took my flu tablets … and pretty much crashed last night.
It was one of those nights full of strange dreams and lots of wakefullness.
Was up to take Coco out at 8am and then read an email from brother Marc suggesting I take some fresh air … I think it was in response to a mad email the poor man received from me yesterday ranting on about blah blah life and blah blah feeling crap … blah blah what’s the point … blah blah
The bridge into town
Took Coco for a walk to the water treatment centre … it’s closer than Lock 5 and I’m still feeling a little under the weather.
Morning light is really wonderful and Coco was just delighted to be off the lead.
Thankfully the whole walk is fenced in so she can’t go and say hello to the sheep … they looked very relieved.
The whistle that Ann gave me works to the point that Coco will run back to me … but not close enough to get caught.
We came home and Miriam rang to ask if I wanted to go get some groceries in Enniskillen.
Now folks … I know I talk about shopping local … but when prices and VAT are soooooo much lower in the North … then I have to shop there as I have very little money … and I’d like to be able to eat over the next month.
I have no new contracts and the small amount of money I have in the credit union has to last me a few months until I get some new work.
The sun shone and the drive was a delight … lots of white thorn bushes and gorse and yellow flowers in the meadows.
I love living in this area.
Home now and I’m working on an information sheet that I’m sending to a pile of non profits in Dublin about my services. I hope it’ll attract some work.
Will be feeling so much better tomorrow.
Stop Press …. Additional News … Help a badly hurt Pup
I was just reading the Cavan Echo and there’s a story about a puppy that would break your heart.
Someone threw a puppy (Mags … we’ll hunt them down) out of a car window at a speed of 40 miles an hour near Carrickmacross on the Cavan border.
The lady travelling behind stopped and took the pup (Torvil) to the Carrick Shelter at Lisdoonan.
The puppy is 7 weeks old and has a badly broken thigh bone.
The cost of the operation and other expenses will run to 700 euro and the Shelter is asking people to donate 20 euro (or whatever you can give) to help.
Anyone who wants to help can make a donation at AIB Bank account number 06670056 sort code 932035.
You all know that I have very little money … and … first thing in the morning I’ll be at the front door of the AIB with at least 10 euro.
And the bad karma that the person who threw Torvill out the car window will be receiving? … very very very very very bad … be afraid …
