Much a’Doo’ About Nothing!

19 Jun

The Scottish word for Pigeon is Doo, as in Dove.

Hubby came in from the garden today and said to me “There’s a doo just lying in the garden.  You’ll need to see to it.”  So off I trot, to see said doo.  He was right.  It was just lying there, between the wall and the watering can.

I managed to pick it up easily.  It didn’t move at all.  So I checked it’s legs and wings and they seemed ok, not broken, and the doo didn’t flinch.  As ‘he’ had been lying in direct sunshine, I put him down under shrubs, against another wall, and I went in to get some sunflower seeds we keep for feeding the birds.  I scattered the seeds around our doo, and put a saucer of water in front of him, which he lapped up thirstily, and I soaked bits of bread in water for him.  I then went inside to Tweet a pigeon loving friend about what I should do about our doo!

Final Memories of My Dad

18 Jun

I watched the Sir Terry Pratchett documentary last week, about Assisted Suicide.  It’s a very emotive subject, which brings very strong opinions to the fore, and which reminded me of my Dad, just before he died.

Dad had heart failure, and he died on 18th June 2008, but, if he’d had his way, he would have passed on a week or so earlier.  He was admitted into hospital at the start of May. Yes, he was finding it difficult to breathe, but he’d had that problem for a few years, been admitted, given medication, and released.  However, this time was different. Continue reading

The Treadmill of my Mind

9 Jun

Depression and anxiety.  I have them both, and I wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy.  Well, maybe on this present Government, for an indeterminate time, just so they know what it’s like to be scared to leave the house, or answer the phone.  How you can’t concentrate, on anything, for a nano-second, and just want the world to go away.

Since I’ve been on medication, the levels of my depression and anxiety change from day-to-day, or even hour to hour.  This particular day had been a fairly good one, but it was starting again.  You might know the feeling.  Continue reading

My First Blog Post – Help!

6 Jun

When I first registered with WordPress and saw my Account, I panicked.  It all looked so technical and, looking around the site, reading different parts of it, it all sounded like a foreign language.  What had I imagined?  Probably something based on MS Word or maybe MS Publisher, with templates.  Here I was faced with terminology I had never heard of before.  What to do?
