yesterday was a sad day..........

.....for those of us who work in the Probation service, it was the last day of the Probation service as it was. As of Monday, it will be split, there will be a small 'public sector' bit which comes under the civil service and the rest , the majority, is being privatised. I am in the private bit, didnt really have much choice in the matter, would of rather the service stayed as it was, but I guess the government thinks it can save money. We wont know who is going to be our new boss until around October. I know change can be good, but this seems change for change sake. This has made me think alot about the future and what I want to do, I have some ideas about re-training, but every course I look at seems expensive, I cant afford to go back to full time education unfortunately, but I am looking at what I can do in terms of distant/online training or qualifications. Who knows, this may prompt a career change and new opportunities, trying to stay positive!

So, during the Easter break we had a short break to Glastonbury. This was a bit of a pilgrimage for me. I had wanted to visit for a long time. The photo is at the tower as t the top of the for, I have fallen in love with the place. We had a great time and calso visited the abbey, chalice well gardens ,and the goddess temple. Definitely reaffirmed my path. We looked for king Arthur's grave in the abbey and meditated in chalice well and drank the water. I will

leave you with more photos.

This is the start of my new blog The title is reference to the meaning of tarka, a definition for an otter so I was once told. Tarka can also mean the wandering of water. Otters have a special meaning to me and tarka describes them perfectly to me I will be blogging about family, nature and spirit .
