Fin’s Fourteenth Adventure

May 14th 2017

National Walking Month and Mental Health Awareness Week

Fin had been doing some reading to see what he could do to help Dr Finlay, whom he was worried about.  His research told him that indeed there were lots of things they could do and that they fell into five groups.

The first of these groups is called Connect which meant that Dr Finlay needed to get out more and meet more people.  Whether he liked the idea or not!!

This would take bravery and a little cunning on the part of both Fin and Dr Finlay.

“Don’t you fancy a pint of beer?” asked Fin.  “Maybe,” said Dr Finlay who then came up with his normal excuse “but I’m a bit tired after a day’s work”.  “All the more reason to relax for a while in that pub across the road The Jolly Waggoner and if you take me with you I will let you sketch me while you enjoy your beer.”

This cunning plan meant Dr Finlay would spend a gentle hour or so drawing and having a quiet drink rather than worrying and he would have a few people around which he could get used to without having to talk to them.

So off they went and here is the result of their first outing in Fin’s campaign to bring out the artist in Dr Finlay.
