Wee chicken face ….



Ohhhh .. I have my wee chicken face on today … (and not because of lack of sleep).

I live down a wee country lane just outside Dunfermline … Fife Council in all their wisdom decided that our lane was too “bumpy” and caused “too much vibration” for the workers in the rubbish lorries (no .. I am not kidding!)

They informed us that our bins (they gave us 2 extra bins for each household) were to be taken to the end of the lane for collection.    I contacted Fife Council as I have a dodgy back and cannot take the bins to the end of the lane if they are full.

I was informed by the Recycling Department that a mistake had been made and the bins should have been left at the end of the lane for us and that men would be sent out to move them.  Which they did.    Unfortunately the collection lorry had been round BEFORE they moved our bins so our general waste (which is now a blue bin and also the old general waste in a black bin) had not been emptied.

I contacted the council AGAIN to explain the situation and was assured that the bins (black and blue) would be collected and emptied.

Nothing has happened.    Today the bin lorry came round and stuck a sticker on the black bins sayng that they would not be emptied because the contain general rubbish … YES you bloody idiots THEY DO .. because YOU have not emptied them since the 26th of June!!

I have phoned the council again today .. they have 1 last chance to empty the black bins .. they MUST be emptied by 5pm tomorrow evening otherwise I will arrange private collection of the rubbish and bill the council for that AND my time and phonecalls.

I cannot believe such a large organisation such as Fife Council can get something so wrong .. is it incompetence, is it stupidity  or just a general apathy?

Who knows.. but empty my bins you stupid buggers!!!

Rant over!

Don’t Stop….

Brae. A gay woman's tale!

In our lives we meet people who will end up being unforgettable for all the right reasons.

Not the ex’s or friends who betray and hurt us but the lovers and friends who stand by you through your tough times and try to help you find your peace again.

Each lover we have is not necessarily the one we will hold forever but to have someone in your life who you have loved and continue to love in a different sort of way is probably one of the most important things that we can have.   This love is more heartfelt and sincere than any other.

If we are really lucky we will meet friends who inspire us, make us smile in those wee quiet moments when we are alone and who make our life that little bit better by just being there and knowing they care.

Sometimes we never tell…

The crossroad of life

Leave a comment

I thought, out of interest I would take a look back on where I was and my thoughts from last year ..

Brae. A gay woman's tale!

Picture from blog.peacockandpaisley.comThere are many crossroads in life.  Some we pass through without realising, until we look back at our past, at others we have to decide what is the best route for us to follow.

Often we meet the same choices at different times in our life, but each time we reach this point the road we choose will,  more often than not, be different.  As it should be.  If it never changes, we never grow, develop, become.

Today has been one of those days for me.. I think, deep down, I knew it was coming but this weekend I have a lot of thinking to do.  I have been fighting with my conscience and my need over the past few months and much more so over the last week, but today a comment made me realise that perhaps the decision I have been in a quandry over is actually what is needed.
