Saved by the bell

The dog charity has been in touch to say that the person wishing to re-home their dog has regretted agreeing to have somebody come and photograph it. My services are not required and I am saved from melting at the sight of its big soft brown eyes. Phew.

I’m disappointed really. I had been looking forward to practising some pet portrait skills but it is a good thing that I shall not be exposed to temptation.

Also disappointed that my Jury cancellation notice has not arrived. I understand Mr L’s reticence regarding bookings when hard evidence has not yet appeared, so I have emailed and requested written confirmation. As he points out, it’s a bit poor. Suppose I had not happened to call them yesterday. It is Friday and I am supposed to attend on Monday. I might be away for the weekend and not see any mail arriving on Saturday.

So, all balls remain in the  air.

And the moment that I wrote that, the email confirmation arrived. Many thanks to the court for a really prompt response.

That’s kudos to OIC and Kirkwall Sheriff’s Court this week, for service above and beyond – though none at all for Transport Scotland who have not replied to my email after 48 hours other than an immediate general autoresponder.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
