When one is incapacitated as I am now, getting around is tiresome. This morning two or three things happened in quick succession - a phone call meant walking with my Zimmer into my office, getting a couple of files out of the filing cabinet, sitting on my bed to sort things (I sleep and compute in there), sorting out the relevant papers, going back into the sitting room and ringing my son to sort things out. My tremor gets worse when I do things like this so I end up flustered and it is all very tiring. That sorted, the lady in charge of Lifeline - a super organisation but one at the moment where the carer can't come in but rings from her car at the bottom of the drive - rang to check that I was well and had no problems; we had a nice little chat and I have no problems - that was another half hour gone. Then it was time to put my carer's lunch in the microwave - today roast pork, apple sauce, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower cheese, mashed and roast potato and a Yorkshire pudding, followed by a fresh fruit salad of strawberries, green grapes, mandarin orange segments and a banana for me to slice into it. That has to be heated and then transported on my braked-trolley from the microwave to the table for eating and then afterwards the plate rinsed and put into the dishwasher. By this time, any thought of a walk with Priscilla was out of the question - I was exhausted by all the to and fro. I sat down to watch the News and promptly fell asleep, waking up when it was over.
All I have done this afternoon is read posts, add a few things to my next Tesco order, and prepare for my usual Zoom with friends at 4pm. They have just e mailed to say can we change it to 5pm - andas neither W nor I can make that time things are off for this week.
It's a grey old day here today and still cold so now - at a quarter past four - I shall make myself a sandwich (maybe a very small tin of red salmon mixed with black pepper, mayo and a dash of cider vinegar) and hope that The Bidding Room has been transferred to BBC2 for half past four (there is yet another update on Covid on BBC1 I believe).
Tonight I intend to watch THAT INTERVIEW. The papers are, of course, full of it - all varying in what they have to say about it so I would like to watch it for myself and thus make up my own mind. The Comment column in The Times has what I think is a good article on the whole thing - it will be interesting to see if I agree after watching the whole fiasco. If you happen to have read the Times comment page I would be interested to hear what you have to say.
Until tomorrow friends
