Started to cry not too long after I woke up and all the pain kicked in again felt quite desperate for abit.
Especially as I was lying on my back which makes me feel even more vulnerable and defenceless.
Richie rescued me with THC and massaged my legs extra long and did extra leg exercises which seemed to ease some of the pain.
No antibiotics today yippee yesterday was the last day so glad that is over they made me feel slightly sick all the time.
After Richie sorted me out with baclofen and food supplement drink and most important of all the laptop he then got busy with a few things.
Number one was plant a sprouting potato in a bucket and who knows we may well get a nice little harvest.
Even if it is only a couple of pounds it will be brilliant to be eating our own potatoes.
Shame we did not get a house with a garden, we nearly had one it was near a neighbourhood we used to live, I lived there from 1981 to 2000.
The flat seemed ideal, two bedrooms and a garden, trouble was I was only number 2.
Number 1 took the flat; she was desperate to get out of the RCA, the Amsterdam Rehabilitation Centre.
So did not care where it was or whether it had a garden.
Real shame for us but really hope she became less negative as well as less stressed and could enjoy her new flat and maybe even the garden if she dares go outside.
Hope she does.
Richie has planted the available space we have very nicely; the balcony at the back has flowers and Black currant and a Loganberry and Thyme and Coriander and Tomatoes, Paprika and hot Peppers. and Potatoes.
Sadly they are not Scotch Bonnet seeds could not find them here, they are the best peppers.
The kitchen windowsill has Coriander, Basil, Strawberries, Rosemary, Thyme plus flowers
Front windows have flowers and Coriander and Basil.
Going to request a pot of Lavender to perfume the balcony the next time Richie goes to the Garden Centre.
So good to have space here for some plants real important that the city be made as green as possible, its good for the bees if there are any flowers around.
If all the roof space were cultivated quite abit of vegetables and fruit could be grown there, Richie estimated that the roof space on our building would keep us all supplied with vegetables.
Something which should be stimulated perhaps Amsterdam City Council should sponsor such an initiative.
It would cut the carbon footstep on food delivery and make the city much greener and be great for the environment.
As well as give a lot of enjoyment to many as well as lovely fresh local produce.
Can we do it?
Yes we can!
