You do the same

Standard

It’s a falsehood to believe you have friends
They are only interested in their own lives
And you do the same!
They will only come at their convenience
And you do the same!
They will only speak about their interests
And you do the same!
They will only believe what their believe
And you do the same!
They may not even help when there is no other option
And you do the same!
Meaningless is the name of friendship.
There is no-one to trust but yourself.

My Isolation stroll

Standard

After isolating for another 2 weeks, it was time to collect my prescription again and take a stroll in the sunshine. I had already planned where I wanted to visit – Richardson Dees Park, Wallsend. Even though it’s only about a 10 minute walk from my abode, I haven’t been there for 30 years. I did take an A to Z with me as I wasn’t sure exactly where it was. When I eventually arrived, what a pleasant surprise. It was lovely to see lots of flowers in bloom around the Abortetum area. I sauntered down the slop and slowly wandered along the Burn which runs through the Dene, viewing ducks, duckling , a few different species of birds and squirrels. I even got a short guided tour by one of the regular local visitors to the park – yes we kept are distance. Overall, a really enjoyable walk.
