How very quickly Thursday, Friday or any other day of the week comes round doesn't it? I pay my Carer on a Friday morning and it always seems to be Friday. All I can say is whatever day I pay her on she is worth her weight in gold and I have no intention of ever doing without her - I know I could no longer manage. It takes me all the morning on her one day a month off to do what she easily does in an hour. Luckily she only lives down the road and is happy to come every day apart from that one day a month and then she always rings around lunch time to see if I am alright.
I have settled into a routine and am happy living life in the way I do. I would rather like it to suddenly be a bit warmer so that I could go out on to the patio or walk a bit further with Priscilla but surely one day the weather will be like that. My poor lawn is suffering - mown, scarified, fertilised and now no rain - it shouts 'suffering' but hopefully once we have a good warm rain it will recover.
I did manage a walk with Priscilla this morning, once round the block, but the wind was strong and it was very cold and I was out for as short a time as possible - really only to post a letter. How lucky I am to have a post box immediately opposite my bungalow.
There is little or nothing to write about today it has been a non sort of day. In fact I watched one episode (the final one) on iplayer of Robbie Cumming on the canal on his narrow boat in the Midlands. He made the film himself and I found it fascinating. In our younger days my first husband and I had friends and neighbours who were really 'into' canal boating and it brought back many happy memories. I know how much they would have been enjoying the programme, Sadly they are both long gone.
