Most folk think living in the countryside in Scotland would be idyllic, lovely views, fresh air, animals and nature all around, even the very occasional dry day....whats to complain about?
Paperwork, movement forms, medicine books, cattle tags, sheep tags, cattle passports, accounts, Census forms, I A C S Forms, and the Man (or Woman) from the 'Ministry'
Wikipedia states that in the modern day a bureaucracy is a government administrative unit that carries out the decisions of the legislature or democratically-elected representation of a state.
A bureaucracy is a group of officials within a government or other institution that implements the rules, laws, ideas, and functions of their institution.
In this day and age where everyone is watching their own back for fear of reprisals and blame people with a bit of power can become dangerous. What ever happened to common sense?
So to take my mind off of the trials and tribulations for the week I took myself off to the Spring Quilt Show at the weekend, spent a few of hours looking at quilts and chatting, spent some £s, of course that was compulsory....
The spring show is more of an exhibit than a competition....lovely quilts as usual.....
In the foyer a wonderful display by Hilary Beattie
