Stalker

Stalker

Today’s post is bought to you by Hikaru. Please send him a big hello in the form of a Like.

He is currently vacationing at a vet on a drip because he was found Saturday on the back veranda after suffering a snake bite. An hour-long drive to a decent vet and he has only 6 lives left. He was given the anti-Venom and put on a drip but his brother Karou is missing his brother.

Hikaru

Hikaru is getting a reputation as the walking vet bill, such is his habit of getting injured. He was only under house arrest over Christmas with a missing claw and infection and the short-term nickname of Thumper, dragging around his back foot heavily bandaged. Damn cat!
Here is a picture of the 2 brothers……..

Now back to my normal post…

Have I mentioned my Landlady has the stalker gene? She likes to bring the secateurs down and poke at the roses while she stares at my front door.

Roses

I, of course am seeing her do this from my seat on the couch in the lounge. I have lace curtains. The horror! Right? I always said I’d never have them, but I like my privacy too much.

Lace Curtains

Stupid Landlady did nothing about the black spot on the roses, I did spray them a few weeks back but, I have yet to go back out and pull off all the infected leaves.

She chose not to notice the lawns are getting to be a jungle. They originally would mow them, themselves, but they have decided they are too old to do it.

Jack the nice guy who does it now is older than they are. He’s a Jack of all trades because he replaced my front lounge blinds…

The lovely man came to mow the lawns today. Yes! I know, I’ve got actual lawn. He’s been here before and he replaced the front lounge blinds, but I’d struggled to remember his name.

I stuck my head, OK all of me clad still in my PJ’s and bed socks to offer him a coffee.

I thought I’d remembered his name. So, I said;

‘Is it Erin or Arron?

To which he replied “Jack”

I was never going to win, was I?

“Damn it”

He smiled. So, all is forgiven.

But funnily enough I remember he came out to Australia from Holland and now I’ll remind myself he’s a Jack of all trades and I’ll remember his name in the future.

So, I’m using name association to recall his name and it just goes to show the brain is like a filing cabinet. It’s all in there, you just need methods of filing them away.

I think that’s why I managed so well in the Case Management role I worked in. There were plenty of systems and everything has a place an uncluttered space, means an uncluttered mind.

Uncluttered

Look around you right now.

What do you see?

If you see clutter?
