Friday’s Fences!

After the car had it’s service it needed an MOT the next day- so another chance for me to explore the side of town I don’t visit so much. Camera in hand of course.

Quite a nice field through this fence.

How about over the gate?

Is this where you would build over a 100 hundred houses for the elderly? With restaurant, shops etc? Maybe not? The nearby residents have taken up the “Not in my back yard” stance, but where can elderly people live?

My father in law is losing his sight and recently took the decision to go to a care home. My own Dad is getting very frail, but at least lives near me and has friends. My Mum on the other hand moved to Wales 40 years ago, and is now getting forgetful, confused, sad and lonely. The friends and neighbours she had have either gone into care or died, and the incomers are all out to work every day. It is a worry which we as a family are trying to resolve.

Older people need somewhere to live where they feel safe, have company and yet keep independence, a purpose built place is ideal. But here in this field where  the lumps and bumps tend to suggest it has been farmed along a medieval strip system at sometime, yet now is used only for sheep occasionally.

The house I live in was once a green field- less than 100 years ago- as are the homes of the people who live near this field.

Sad though it is I am on the side of building good accommodation here for the elderly, what do you think?

Friday’s fences!

I have been painting the bathroom all week. Yesterday I completed the last little bit, and rather than sit and watch paint dry I took myself off for a walk in the late Autumn sunshine. And here is a very utilitarian fence at the North York Moors Railway, but after the rain in the sun it was
