Rising Damp.

Cornish Art.

We were unintentionally up real late last night, before we knew it was 2.30 in the am.

I was wide awake having watched a film of the TV series Rising Damp, it was very funny, had a good laugh which was nice.

Very nice to see the cast again, Leonard Rossiter was excellent as Mr. Rigsby.

Trouble was that I was too awake and still too lively to go to sleep easily.

As it was nearly3 am by the time Richie had got me my last baclofen tablets, I took a Lormetazpam.

It did the trick and I seemed to go to sleep quite quickly, the dogs stayed in the bedroom last night and because I took the pill Spike shaking himself did not disturb me for once.

He seems to have to get up many times during the night and shake himself which makes his ears flap.

They sound like pistols shots going off and once I am woken up, I find it near impossible to get back off to sleep again.

Thanks to the Loremetazpam I heard nothing and slept until 12 noon, which was wonderful, woke up then because Spike shook himself and his ears were even louder than normal.

Thanks Spike and a good morning to you too.

Another nasty grey and wet and blowy day seems like we have been getting all the rain these last 10 days.

It is disappointing that the weather is so shitty right now, that I have made no attempt to go out, hope that I do not end up too worried to go out.

Don’t think that will happen and I also know that Richie will encourage me to go out.

At the moment there is no problem as the weather is really not nice enough for me to go out.

On the other hand I need to just do it sometime soon, and for me it will need to be sooner rather than later.

I won’t say when I think that it will happen, but it will happen soon before I build up a phobia about going out.

Rain can also be seen as liquide sunshine.

Hi Robert,
Thanks for your visit and lovely comment.
Love the idea of liquid sunshine.

I love the cornish art! Lovely! Especially the person leaning into the wind and tugging the dog behind them. Wonderful!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for beautiful weather! YES! I'll try to send some your way ;)

Great imagery of the puppy flapping his ears.

Hi Herrad, Here in the Pacific Northwest a lot of people call our rain liquid sunshine. Our November normal is 9", but this month we've had over 14". That's enough liquid sunshine for me!

If it's not too cold wrap yourself up and just consider it exciting. After being in bed for more than a year, I'd say a little rain qualifies as excitement. Just be sure to wear a hat.

Go to a nearby coffee shop and have something warm. It'll be a fun outing.

Hi Herrad! I personally think that the longer you wait, the more worry you'll have! I like the phrase you used "just do it". I remember talking myself into taking the chair lift down the mountain last summer...the longer I waited, the more scared I got! Whatever you decide, I do hope the weather cooperates!

Hi Webster,
Thanks for coming by, I agree a trip out will be exciting, nicer with warm clothes.
A visit to the coffee shop near here is a good idea.

Hi Rain,

Sooner is better than later.
