I have a condition called 'Benign Essential Tremor' - not serious, runs in families,just a nuisance. It seems to be worse this hot weather, so it is quite easy to press the wrong button. This is exactly what happened yesterday. I really can't remember what I posted about but what I do know is that when I got to the end I pressed the wrong button and the whole thing disappeared into the ether. Sometimes right-clicking on undo is enough to make it all return but not so yesterday. I gave up in despair - this weather is hard enough to cope with without re-writing the whole thing.
So, on to today and its events. Now that I am into a period of not driving until the doctor has looked into my TIA (he doesn't seem particularly bothered but obviously I can\t drive) I am having to completely reorganise my life. I have bounced back (wondered whether I would or not - but I have) and the first thing i have done is to order my weekly shopping from Tesco. It was delivered this morning and before I went in to meet friends for coffee (collected and returned home very kindly by friend E) I had it all stored away. I have also ordered six Ready Meals to try (from a company called COOK which has been highly recommended so I will report back when I have eaten a meal) and they are coming tomorrow morning, so my job left to do today is to reorganise my freezer to make room for them. This week's Hair Appointment taxi has been booked. And I am looking into getting a Walking Aid. D, who I meet at coffee each Tuesday morning, let me have a go with his this morning and it seems ideal. It has four wheels so is very stable, it has a small shopping basket and the lid forms a seat if you need it. It folds and has a handle for lifting it up on to the bus. The bus from the town centre stops at the end of my road so I hope I am getting myself organised.
It is a very hot day here. When I came home this morning my tubs in the front were all seriously wilting so I had to water them all and also my newly planted conifers. After lunch I have watered the tubs in the back garden and I shall have to water all tubs again when the sun goes down tonight. Tomorrow is our Poetry afternoon so now I am off to look at my offering - Edith Sitwell is worth a search so might start. At present I am reading Derek Jarman's 'Modern Nature' - you have to be pretty broad-minded to read it (it is certainly an eye opener) but fascinating stuff. 'Til tomorrow
