This morning woke up to all the usual street sounds plus the sounds of the builders next door as it was only 8 am or so asked Richie to get some thc for me so that I could go to sleep again.
It worked a treat except that every time I was going to slip off again either the waste bins by the Fijnhout theatre were being emptied, it always sounds like they are being thrashed against the wall.
Or what sounded like hundreds of kids would burst out on the road and scream around for five minutes and vanish as suddenly as they arrived this happened twice.
Ah well did manage to doze quite happily until 10 and felt quite refreshed for it too, was nice as we did not turn the light off until 2.30 this morning as I was watching Sean Connery in a movie.
He is eminently watchable in anything, if it had not been for Sean Connery I would have given it a miss.
Soon as the pain kicked in Richie fetched me some THC and once I finished the arm exercises Richie did the leg exercises and then the leg massage which really made my legs feel better with less tension in them.
After that quickly took the baclofen tablets and eagerly waited for Richie to get my laptop and place it in front of me.
I am eating strawberries as I write this, Richie came through with a small bowl of strawberries which he placed on my stomach.
They are delicious what a lovely day, this is despite the pain, when I get sweet comments on yesterdays post from lovely blog friends and the sun is shining.
Life given all the restrictions is good, would prefer no physical restrictions but that is just how things are.
If there was any way Richie and I could change my situation, we would do it, we would be tireless.
Once we realised there was nothing we could do to change my situation we had to try to accept what was happening.
Do seem to have accepted now that what used to be is well in the past now and will not happen again.
Notice that acknowledging that has made my daily life easier to deal with and much more manageable.
This in turn means that daily life has become acceptable and I have a good quality of life despite the physical restrictions.
Can’t be bad lying here nibbling strawberries and about to have a brunch of fruit smoothie from cranberry, apple, pear, orange and carrot.
And delicious Moroccan bread wedges with a variety of delights such as avocado, sardine with pepper sauce, homemade peanut butter and goat cheese.
Richie will join me with a cup of coffee, lovely then I get the aroma without needing to drink any which is the best of both for me.
It was a feast really delicious and tonight we will feast on individual savoury tarts, the pastry filled with a sardine ands creamy goat cheese (not very goaty) mixture with tomatoes and garlic and fresh basil.
This will be eaten with cabbage cut in strips and steamed for a couple of minutes and tossed in a dressing of olive oil, garlic and lemon juice and crispy fried potatoes.
Desert is apple/raisin and ginger cake with fruit custard which is delicious, had some yesterday and the day before so must start lobbying for a new cake, this time chocolate, nice gooey chocolate.
The sun is shining and the blue skies are very pretty which means happy day here hope it is like that for all my lovely blog friends.
Have a good Friday.
