Today we went walking.

So as its my day off (yay for the weekend!) and the sun is shining I decided to get up early and take the dog somewhere adventurous.

Now, a little bit about where I live! I live in Scotland, not known for its blistering sunshine so I had to take advantage of this weekend while it lasts. Early hours of this morning was filed with the sound of people starting to cut their grass on what could be the last dry and warm day of the year. I live in the very centre of the central belt, but on the edge of a town so all I have to do is pick a direction and Im amongst glorious glorious countryside.

Today we went to a nearby pond, which is highly over grown and forgotten about by the council so its a bit of a mess. Never the less it is very beautiful, very green and untamed. You cant really wander away from the paths without being knee deep in grass and mud but we were ok with that. The last time we went to visit the pond, we spent an hour trying to find it and gave up. This time we found it within a couple of minutes and I was a bit disappointed that you couldnt actually get close to the water.

We’d actually wanted to find the near by burn, but I can’t find how to get us there at all. My dog loves to wade into streams and go diving for rocks, she should have been born an otter instead!

We had a lovely walk anyway, barely met anyone which is nice!


This is about the closest i could get, most of the view around in the pond is obscured by trees and really tall grass.


This is my old girl on our way back, she never stays still long enough to get a photo!


I didnt realise how old my girl was looking until i saw this photo! I love her loads anyway 🙂

So today we begin to write.

My name is Charlotte,

I am a hopeful author, dedicated dog owner, diligent worker and overall thinker of thoughts.

I enjoy eating fish and singing to the radio. Soft toys and dvd boxsets make me happy. I do not have a male counterpart because I cannot find one.


I enjoy interaction with people and have been described as charming and patient. Not my words.


I tutor in my spare (ha!) time, I enjoy watching my pupils faces as things suddenlt click into place.

My one true love is my dog, Shasha, who is currently crunching on a bone in my living room. She is the love of my life and I would spend every day just sitting with her and giving her my full attention if I did not have to work. She is clever, disobedient, cheeky and the most beautiful soul I have ever met. Shasha loves nothing more than eating, pretending to be asleep while she secretly watches you, rolling in smelly things she finds lying in the grass and sampling the many types of grass that grow around her house. 


Today i received my adoption certificate for my leopard that came with a little toy, and the first thing the old geriatric bat did was steal it and run around the living room with my new teddy between her teeth. Image,

Why am I here?

I made this blog on a whim. Life is too quiet. Sometimes things just need to be said and I bite my tongue, or I tell it to someone and they’re like “yeah – but what does that have to do with the price of milk?”.

So here I am.
