Abrupt awakening this morning.
Slept well last night and until 10 this morning when leg spasms and arm cramps woke me up rather abruptly.
They woke me up instantly, there is no way that I could ignore it and sleep on, no way and once it had happened there was no way I could slip off to sleep again.
Shame as I really fancied another half an hour of snoozing to get me used to being fully awake.
It is another grey, wet and cold day today; Amsterdam is like this alot, often all year round, but especially in the autumn.
It was an especially good summer this year, quite unheard of for here; we have not had a really good summer here for almost ten years.
It was strange to hear the countries all around were having a dreadfully wet weather, we kept expecting the rain to arrive here but it never happened.
It was amazing how dry and hot it was here; mind you not dry enough for it not to be dreadfully humid.
That made the heat unbearable for me, I think probably for lots of other people too.
Keeping this short today as I am off for a lovely shower and then do the Motomed exercises for 30 minutes sitting up in the wheelchair.
A good friend from Germany is in town for the weekend, looking forward to seeing her later this afternoon.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.
