Life in Central Otago
Not every day I am running around meeting new business owners and clients. Not many people realise but Miss Wordsmith is also a community support worker - paid by the Government to look after people.
Nothing really prepares for this job. Last week I met a guy who left dog roll on the bench yet he didn't have any pets. With no dinner organised and poor health I put two-and-two together.
I could see he might not make it through winter, yet this man still had the best sense of humour, and when I mentioned the 20 pumpkins stored in my garage, he sat bolt upright in bed and proceeded to tell me how to make soup.
Well there is only so much soup my family can tolerate, so no doubt I will be dropping off some to him later this week.
