Volunteering at Ubuntu House ….

I have had “must volunteer at Ubuntu House” sitting on my sh*t do to list for years.  Not figuratively years, but literal years.  I think since 2010 if I recall correctly.

I keep printing out the forms, looking for my best inky pen, filling them in.

Then promptly losing them on my desk, and getting side tracked with life.

I phone Ubuntu House again, they send the forms, again, and I would promptly repeat the process.

But not this year.  This year, this month I have my stuff together.

Saturday I am attending their “Volunteer Course” which I assume will include information about which side of the baby to keep upright.  How to clean poo bums.  How to cuddle a baby that is struggling with human interaction, and hopefully how not to get too attached so you do not try to sneak a baby out of the center all snuggled up against you.

I think they have a rule about that.

Excited. Lots.

Apprehensive.  A bit.



Want to support Ubuntu House?  You can, visit their page and see what they need.

Since we lost Pluto … we really need another planet …

Introducing Planet Hiltron — I am sure it is about deep and meaningful things as well, but I like the images that are “if celebrities were just normal people…”

What makes it even funnier, is that whilst you are chuckling and coughing your tea on to your screen you are going: “That’s exactly how  they would look.”

Enjoy.  And yes, I know, its a pleasure.
