A new year and a year of change

This year will be one for change for the Moore family. Hopefully, both Zoë and Alexandra will graduate from their universities, following hard on the heels of their mother, Lucy, who graduated with a 2.1 in Physiotherapy last year. Zoë has a vague plan to find somewhere to live with her boyfriend in North London. Of course that depends on finding suitable work, not the easiest of tasks for graduates these days, but the specialist nature of her course with Imperial College will help (hopefully). Read more […]

This illustrates a key difference between dogs and cats for me. I know many people get considerable pleasure from their cats but for me it seems cats are mostly self interested and dogs are interested in me (or whoever the pack leader is).

We used to have cats

I am not a cat person, by a long margin. We did not have any when I was a kid and what I did see of them in other people’s homes did nothing for me. I have long regarded them as parasites. I like dogs. We had dogs when I was a kid. For many years it was impractical for us to have a dog. As I felt the kids were missing out on the experience of having pets, I relented and agreed (suggested in fact, as no one else would have dared) to get a cat. We acquired a used model that we decided to call Kirtsie. Read more […]

Scotland 08 – Friday

Heavy rain most of the night and still going strong in the morning. We did not feel motivated to do very much. We had planned a day out in a particularly beautiful area near by including a couple of waterfall visits. We decided, somewhat reluctantly, to head back to Inverness and hit the shopping centre. My eldest daughter hates shopping so this was not a great option for her. Not great for the dogs either but it was time for some retail therapy.
