    Thank you.

    A mere bagatelle.

    My Aura

    We’ve just had the worst possible news about my youngest greyhound , Aura. She died under the GA and they found that her lungs were full of blood and pus. She couldn’t be resuscitated even though they tried to aspirate the fluid - it was too viscous. She was three and we’d had her for a year, a week and five days We thought we were fighting a simple infection but now the vet thinks she had run on to a sharp object that penetrated her chest cavity, probably a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been treating her with antibiotics and pain medication prescribed on Thursday with a check at the vets on Friday. I’m devastated.

    What movie are are you watching

    Just watched ‘Outlaw King’, about Robert the Bruce. Historically the most accurate I’ve seen in a while. Everything depicted actually happened.

    My family comes from Brodie, right next to Forres. I love it there but the fishing industry depression there means it looked a bit run down when I visited a couple of weeks ago. Further north, they’re benefiting from the North Coast 500 tourist route boom and looking much more upmarket. Furthermore you get more house and land for your money there.

    Because I feel at home there. They have my culture and speak my language. I’m tired of being an exile.

    Tain and Dornoch, look good to me at the moment. Buckie and the rest of the MF fishing ports are so run down.

    Islamification of Europe

    Funny, that. When I did French at school, he was a Frenchman. Has he changed his nationality posthumously? 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    I have a lot of respect for Voltaire’s writings. He’s sure right here.

    I probably waved to you! Once I was driving back from Scotland with my mother. I knew DaftBoy was on his way north. We both had distinctive Landcruisers. We recognised each other on the A34 and waved. What are the chances?

    No, Pinny, despite the recent changes there. Further north where it’s quieter and I can get a house on an acre of land and still be mortgage free.

    The Isle of Wight is going downhill, but not as fast as the North Island. I put this down to the docility of the natives. Crops of new housing are being raised in too many fields close to me, with no investment in the supporting infrastructure. The local GP surgery is under siege, with my ability to see a doctor (and I have an ongoing serious medical condition) limited to “nurse recommends a change of medication“, death, or a need for a sick/fit note. My GP, whom I recruited from Germany in another life, is working till nigh on midnight most weekday evenings, supported by one partner and a succession of locums. There used to be ten full time GPs at this practice. The ferries are so expensive that you need their special offer codes to take your car to the mainland for a day; it’s almost £100 return if you go away for longer than a couple of nights. Finally, my employment contract has been TUPEd to the worst dental practice on the island (9 miles away) when the employing trust (NOT IOW TRUST) gave up the contract because it was too much trouble to manage us from Somerset. I used to work 200 yards from home. All of the foregoing has led me to decide to move back to Scotland. I’m preparing the house for sale and looking for somewhere to live roughly between Wick and Aberdeen.
