Sometimes its the little things!

Today I went for a long walk with my guide dog Frankie.   Frankie works hard but gets plenty of free time to balance this. 
Today we walked up to the woods passed the dams, I was very aware of the fact of avoiding chit chat, it is not always easy with a blonde Labrador but we went early when not too many people were about . The amazing thing was I could take my time and enjoy listening to the sleepy environment around me.  Often the sound of silence is magical after years and years of experiencing whistling and feedback from my old NHS hearing aids.

Today was a beautiful day, the sun was shining it was bliss hard to believe that with all that is happening around the world at the moment!

In the woods the birds were singing and boy there is plenty for them to sing about spring is upon us. Today I realised something I’ve never heard before and that is the sheer number of different bird calls there actually is . Music to my ears. I also found myself laughing as I heard Frankie paddling in the running water.

I really enjoyed my escapism today away from today's harsh reality but all thanks to Molly Watt Trust GN Hearing and the wonderful staff at The Hearing Clinic, Glasgow without a doubt LiNXQuattro have changed my life.
