Sunny November Day.












Amsterdam Street Art.

Watched football until very late, the Saturday night extravaganza on BBC 2 TV, before that we watched David Haye box and win against Nicolai Valuvev.

Slept very well until I got woken up by leg spasms and my arms seemed to lock solidly together.

Richie got up then, so asked him for THC which got me back off to sleep again for a few hours until 11.30.

Then did my arm exercises quickly as my arms were hurting alot, good idea to do the exercises quickly so my arms get stretched out and can function well.

By this time it was nearly 1 pm when our friend Antje was due to visit us; she did not manage to get here yesterday.

She brought us some delicious treats from Germany which we will enjoy later today; it was nice to see Antje again.

This time she introduced us to her new boyfriend, Carsten, who seemed to be a nice man.

Antje visits us once a year she promises to return sooner, especially as her daughter Ira really enjoyed her brief visit to Amsterdam.

Hope they come back soon and that we get a chance for a really good catch up this time they could only stay for an hour.

Richie is watching football on the telly, Hull versus Sunderland, hope Hull do well otherwise their manager Phil Brown will get the sack.

Would be a great shame as he is a good manager, hope he will be given the time to prove that he is the best manager Hull have ever had.

Today has been a sunny day with beautiful blue sky; the sun is starting to fade away now a sit is already 4 pm.

Dusk will be starting to happen soon and it will be very dark, already the clouds have come back.

Ah well soon it is the shortest day and longest night, and after that it is not too long before the days will get longer again.

Happy days indeed.

Hi Herrad, I need to get around more often. I just am not quite sure what it is but I am getting slower all the time in leaving comments. I know it is shameful to take so long. I am going to be honest and say that part of it is with you, you are such a lovely lady and should say I just get so angry that you or anyone has this ugly disease. I know you are so upbeat most of the time and that makes me even angrier that you should have to put up with MS stealing you away. I must say though with Richies help I think you are doing very well, a good share of the time. I congratulate you.

Hi Lucy,
Thanks for coming by, you never need to apologise.
It is always good to see your comments.
You are right this disease is a shitty one.
Richie looks after me very well.
Have a good day today.
Love,
Herrad

Exercising on a Sunday! That's the spirit! Keep those bones strong. :-)

Hope your chair is well on its way to becoming your new best friend. How are your feet handling the sitting? One of BR's swells up quite a bit after a day of sitting.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment.
I exercise everyday and use the Motomed everyday, this stops my feet swelling up. Slowly getting used to sitting in the wheelchair again.
Have a good Sunday.
Love,
Herrad

Hi Judy,
Thanks for coming by and commenting, always good to get your comment.
Exercise is good, I think doing my arm exercises has not only built muscle but has increased my hand/arm function.
Good luck on your exercise bike.

Hi Stephany,
Thanks for coming by and leaving good wishes for today.
Hope your day today is good too.

Thanks Stephany and thanks Judy for coming by rally appreciate your visits and comments.

Hope Monday is good for you both.
