I have been asked by family and friends this question many times in the past few weeks. So I did what seems to be my norm nowadays I googled Loneliness, came up with this quiz: http://psychcentral.com/quizzes/loneliness.htm
I scored 18 which means: You answered this quiz consistent with people who are having a normal experience of loneliness. This is usually not something to be concerned about, as everyone can feel a little lonely from time to time.
So I guess by the shrink test I am lonely at times. I am happy with that.
Yes I do wish at times that I had someone (other than Sasha) to share some memories of house sitting with as memories are meant to be shared. However I am in my element in more ways than one. ANIMALS have always been in my life, caring for any animal that shows you love unconditionally can’t be that bad. Here in Banchory I am watching over a small menagerie.3 Llamas Rocky Killarney and Dennis(Healy) a mixture of Sheep 18 1/2 doz assorted chickens including one rooster as well as 2 felines, Jasmine and Cara. The 2 dogs Iyla and Susie are in London BUT will be returning 23.24 Sept.
I Skype Stephanie and many friends during a normal week and that keeps me in touch. I meet up with cousins and people at the Aberdeen Historical society, as well as being a member of the Scottish legion and the Banchory Library;
Here are some pics of the menagerie:
