Quite a morning.
Had a reasonable nights sleep sadly woke up really early hot and bothered and damp.
Flapped the duvet open and cooled off enough to drift back off to sleep which was really lovely and very welcome.
At 11.30 a very pleasant woman came round from Arjo Huntleigh, the company who we got the air pressure mattress from.
She wanted to check that the pump is working well, had hoped to get an upgrade but she told me that I have their best mattress the Nimbus 3.
She did put it on a softer setting and I felt the difference quite quickly which is better than it was.
Now I do not feel so much pressure on my back so quite a useful visit.
Plus now know that if the pump starts to get too loud we need to call the company and they will come and replace the filter in the pump.
After the vcisit received an email fro-m a friend in England with bad news about a friend of his who had just got 9 months in prison for a few cannabis plants.
His first offence!
No wonder the prisons are full, and not of scary prisoners as we are led to believe but with people like my friend's friend Dusty.
Many years ago I had a job working for the Probation Service in Reading, my job was to sit in court and take noted for the Probation officers to make their reports.
Regularly saw sad people at their wits end trying desperately to make ends meet and failing.
They would often break open the electric meter and steal a small ammount and end up in prison leaving partner and kids in an even worse position.
Never made sense to me which is why I did my degree in Criminology purely out of interest and not for the career opportunities.
