There has been a distinct shift in our lives the past week or so…
There was bound to be, we have dealt with some more upset caused by this Summer’s issues with our neighbour here, which we are trying to resolve now that we have caught our breath from the journey back from Scotland and have to settle in for the winter here.
The arrival of our new furry son has brought smiles to our faces and happiness to our hearts again and he is settling in and finding his feet, we are setting the boundaries and so far so good, his re-training in certain things is progressing. The original training has held him in good stead and he is eager to please us.
My partner has reached a big Birthday, which has quite obviously got him thinking about what he does and doesn’t want to do with his life. So this week marks the end of a voluntary career with the local community spanning around ten years. During this time, he has worked tirelessly for the benefit of others, often been ostracized for his work and suffered abuse and downright harrassment at times, often from unexpected directions.
He has decided this week that he does not want to be involved in the politics of it any more, to be ruled by it all and last night tendered his resignation upon the advice of a police officer who felt that the neighbourhood situation may calm down if he steps out of the public eye. He has given it alot of thought and emailed his resignation last night. I can tell that it was not as easy a decision as he first thought, there is disappointment at mistreatment and lack of support throughout the summer and over the years. But this morning he tells me that he is happier to be out of the game, the back-stabbing and if he is no longer involved, then he does not have to be a part of it.
I guess, he’s just finally had enough.
Today he is quiet, pensive and thoughtful. He is trying to dot the I’s and cross the T’s. Tie up any loose ends, he is dealing with things. I don’t know what he plans to do next, but I am sure that whatever it is, he will throw himself wholeheartedly into it and give it his best shot. After all, that is the man he is and doubtless I will support him with it in whatever way possible. We are a team, a partnership and I stand by his side.
15/11/16 I wonder what will come next… Am I apprehensive? Maybe a little, but change is supposed to be good. I should welcome it, goodness knows we needed so much to change and are fed up with leaving things to chance so why am I unsure?
Last night there was a Supermoon, he encouraged me to make wishes. Although there were sightings of it the night before, I was waiting to see it but it was hidden by fog last night here. I wish we had been up on the hill, where I am sure it would have been huge and bright and I would have bathed in it’s glory. But I did manage to get a good look at it the night before and the dog and I sat in the back garden gazing up in wonder at it. Will my wishes come to fruition, I hope so but am pleased that some of them already have.
