It seems that my little girl is sneakily growing up on me.
I had to take her to an open day at a college yesterday! How did that happen?
We had good chat with the people there about the course that she wants to take, which is animal care. She loves animals and this is certainly the best direction for her to go. She is not sure if she wants to go into the veterinary side or not - she also likes the idea of working in a zoo or rescue centre, or even becoming a "dog whisperer". Whatever she does it certainly sounds like a good life, and who could want more for their children?
Today is one of those wonderful foggy autumn days. I love the fog - they way it softens the sounds around you and takes off the rough edges like a Gaussian blur on a portrait photo. It also seems to make car drivers a little more cautious which makes cycling that much more pleasurable.
I bumped into an old boss of mine last night! He is a great guy who I owe a lot too. He even went out of his way to gate-crash my wedding - and a most welcome gate-crasher he was, too. Hoping to get together for lunch soon to catch up on things.
This Christmas I will be returning to an old hobby of mine - wine making! I used to have tons of equipment for this, but that all went, so Mrs RC is going to set me up with new stuff. I made some really good wine when I was younger and had a lot of fun in the process. Watch out next year for inevitable tales of triumph and disaster! Place your orders now!
