The divisions in the leaves reminded me of his finger-picking style when he played guitar, and one of our first 'official' dates was at a garden with a large one which Joe had really liked. It was however in a slightly more sheltered area!! This one does get a bit battered by the winter winds.

Hope you like it. It helped me to cope with my emotions at the time.

A beautiful, but cold late walk with my dog Hamish, at Cathkin Braes, above Glasgow [to the south]. The sunset that day was spectacular - and this is one of a series of pictures I took. If you look closely at the bottom middle of the pcture - one can just see some lights in the distance - from the Newton Mearns part of Glasgow I think.

I haven't been writing blogs for quite a while, it gets depressing being unemployed for a long period, hopefully I shall be gainfully employed in 2011 once again. I did get a part-time Facilitator post - but it was on an 'as and when required' basis - so although I was working from the end of June to the end of August - it was only a few days most weeks and the days were usually only 2.5 to 4 hours in length!! certainly not a full time post - but it still took up a day! Then after starting I discovered that I could NOT claim Working Tax Credits as I needed to have been signing on for 26 weeks - and I was only signing for 25 weeks when I started the part time post - if I had known I would have waited for another week efore starting!!!! - which would have given me a living wage at least! I still occasionally do guided walks - for 2.5 hours - but because I do - I get money taken off my state benefits - much more than I actually earn too!!
Here are a few photos of where I was doing this part-time post - the Natioanl Museum for Rural Life Scotland
