Eight years ago this fellow showed up unexpectedly on our doorstep. We could not find out who the owner was and it was apparent that he had been abused. He was very frightened of us and it took a lot of hard work for me to gain his trust. Luckily at that time I was unemployed and had a lot of free time on my hands. I fed him and eventually when we could not find the owner he adopted us by staying.
He was a handful in the beginning very energetic. He still does not accept strangers and only trust me but I am ok with that because the dog has immense love for me which does not always show in the photos, but he is so very important to me. He is our little alarm system and he is the wagging little tail when I get home – my loveable little black dog.
A weather forecast you can trust.
Consider this …
I started my new job yesterday. I panicked and had many doubts when my new department head called me in and discussed my new duties. I am concerned that I might not get the hang of the new company quickly enough.
No matter how uncertain I felt about this move I have done things these past two days which I was not allowed to do at my previous place of employment because the accountant there had an insecure personality and wanted total control.
It brings tears to my eyes to think that these people have only met me two days ago and I am allowed so much access to do my work whereas I was so resticted at my previous job for so many years.
It was never a matter of trust because my previous employer said to me many times that I am the only one he can trust.
The only thing I must force myself to do is get use to the extra two hours a day of work.
I will try and catch up on everyones posts over the weekend. Keep well.
This is the little face I see when I leave home. Looking through the gate at me with those pleading eyes saying please don’t go.

Many years ago before the internet even existed I connected to the rest of the world through penpals.
I was an avid collector of pretty stationery and stickers. Here are some examples which are of butterflies.
