Thursday already -not sure where the days go but I assure you all that the days have sped by and I have just not had any spare time.
Tuesday P and D came over from Grange over Sands and together with mutual friend W, we all four went to Tennants, our local Auction Dealers,for lunch and very nice it was too. I(didn't need any rocking off to sleep that night)!
Wednesday - well I am always tired the day after I have visitors. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy having visitors but it does mean I have to watch it the day afterwards. I always enjoy Wednesday evening television. First of all Michael Portillo's train journeys - at present through Vietnam (how very civilised and peaceful it all looks after years of savage warfare) and then a quick switch-over to Channel 4 for the country's finest woodworker. Isn't anyone else watching this - it is fascinating and such talented individuals? Then another switch over to Doc Martin. We are nearing the end of a really enjoyable series over the years (I thought it was the last one last night but it is next week) - the last series of all. I don't suppose the residents of Port Isaac, where it is filmed, will be sorry to say Goodbye to it. By this time it was half past ten and I was ready for bed.
Because of my recent seizures I keep a bag packed - my "hospital bag" and when I go to bed I leave both pairs of specs in the same place so that my carer can put my specs in the bag at the last minute if necessary. This is the last job I do before 'lights out'. Crisis. Half past ten at night and I can't find my reading specs!!!! I usually carry them around with me and leave them on the desk in my bedroom, They weren't there.
After searching for an hour I gave up and got ready for bed. Then before I got into bed I thought I would look round one last time. They were where I always put them but because the specs case is black and they were sitting on my black printer they just had not shown up. By now it was midnight.
I usually get up at a quarter past six (my carer comes at seven on the dot ).This morning I was awakened by a furious banging on the window - I had slept in. It was seven and my carer was getting wet we were experiencing the worst thunderstorm she could ever remember. The flashes of lightning were an electric blue the noise of the thunder was horrendous and the rain was literally 'sheeting down'. An exciting start to today. Still pouring when the taxi came to take me to the hairdresser; still raining heavily now at halfpast three. See you tomorrow.
