finding time

goodness gracious! how on earth do busy folk find time to write?

me, myself...
one of the unrepentant idle...
i now find myself vaguely occupied ...
in an eryll-ish sort of way.
i have things to do and places to be...

nature watch...
there are the lambs in the field opposite, born about three weeks ago, they have almost doubled in size. the wee ones are full of spring fever, they play follow my leader and chase each other around or up and down the field.
at least i thought that was what the little blighters were up to. had a closer view today and discovered...
the truth!
the little boy lambs are actually chasing the little girl lambs... with big boy thoughts on their tiny minds.
yup, lost innocence at three weeks of age.

economic experimentation...
i am decided. my reflexology practice will be open by the 1st of april. i had a meeting on tuesday with a business guru from the small business gateway and he recommended i see an advisor involved in the "new deal 50 plus" in order to start "test trading". Damn! i love this country and it's socialistic ways....
so monday i have another meeting in girvan and then hopefully i will be on my way to being on my way. quite a few of the local folk have hinted that they could do with a little foot magic.

postprandial perambulation...
of course...
one does not find ones self in residence in a most beautiful ayrshire village and then neglect the task of exercising one's legs whilst taking in the sheer magnificence of one's surroundings.

the never ending search for under priced antiquities...
well...
the thrift shop is right next door, somewhat hard to resist a little perusing...

preparation to foster...
i have the time, i have the space, i have the capacity, i've done the preparation course and now...
i'm being considered, evaluated...
which involves a supplying a list of every place i have lived from birth until today. yikes! the nomad has been working man! thus far i have remembered 31 homes i have lived in. some of the street numbers are permanently misfiled in my brain, i have probably missed a couple....
what can i say...
this weeks home work...
like write the story of your life!
social worker says "no need to stress eryll, just tell us about your family, your relationships, high and low points of your life. events which have made an impact on your life."
well...
that would be easy, a piece of cake, a walk in the park...
if...
i was like thirty!

Them there nomadic ways were bound to catch up with you, girl. Exciting on the fostering, though.

Fostering--kids?
I've done that.
I can't wait to hear more.

How exciting!

If you mean kids, we've fostered a couple. Great experience. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did:)

hey margo, lori, mike
kids... that's the plan! i was hoping to do short term care for sibling groups to prevent the children being separated from one another.
unfortunately the board of directors who rule over my place of abode...
think it's a no,no :-(
they will be having another meeting in april to vote as they did not have a quorum this time around.
so...please keep fingers and toes crossed!

I hope it works out, Eryll. Jeez, you were in my dream last night about the kids. That was weird. You spoke in poetry and had all these kids hanging around you.

Tell them to hurry up. It's hard to hold reins with fingers crossed.

Oh, and as for finding time, I was looking for a sock this morning and came upon ten minutes I'd stashed in that drawer a few weeks ago. You can have them, okay? Hope it helps.
