Sense and lack of it………
Very early this morning, around 6.30 am, I drove to Paws Animal Sanctuary and handed Sandy, the puppy, over to them. I couldn’t stop crying and felt so stupid and ashamed that I couldn’t keep him and that I couldn’t control my emotions. The lady was lovely, showed me how happy the dogs are and showed photos of some who’d lived there 7 plus years. The dogs are definitely well loved and happy: as Annie said, they see humans all day; gheader=Sense and lack of it………, Very early this morning, around 6.30 am, I drove to Paws Animal Sanctuary and handed Sandy, the puppy, over to them.

again, at least he is safe – and Sue is there tomorrow (she’s a volunteer angel at the sanctuary) so I know she’ll make a fuss of him. I suspect I’ll be back there too…………..
With checkins and checkouts all day, in unseasonable storms and rain, it hasn’t been the best of days. Thankfully, the guests leaving villas in Coral Bay and villas in Peyia, have had a fantastic time and were so happy, it cheered me up. Incoming guests, loved the villas.
Then I came home to a phone call and email relating to some longterm guests who are the sweetest family of 4 small children and their parents – they’ve moved into a small complex made up mainly of retired older people and one of these residents has decided he doesn’t like young children or young people so its his personal mission to complain about them – and threaten legal action because the children play and laugh/sing!
I really don’t know how to respond to this. Part of me wants to laugh at how sad the writer of this email must be to be so upset by happy children noises. Part of me wants to punch his lights out for being so small minded as to sit down and write such a disparaging, exaggerated and inflamatory email.
Am going to sleep on it; say a special prayer for stray animals and ask forgiveness for stupid thoughtless people……
To the children and animals of the universe, I’m raise a large glass of white first!
