Taking it easy.
Was unsuccessful in getting off to sleep last night, woke poor Richie up, turned out it was 5.30 when I did.
After some THC went off to sleep and had a few hours, was woken by a dog barking and people talking outside.
Could not get back to sleep again, so heard all the street noises, like the glass container being emptied very noisily.
Then more loud conversations, the rain had obviously stopped and despite it being a cloudy day it was pleasant enough for people to hang outside.
I was not too pleased with the weather as I would have preferred gentle rain which would have put anyone off from being outside for longer than they needed to be there.
Felt abit mean for thinking that but after such a bad nights sleep it was understandable, well sort of.
Still made me feel like a curmudgeon, not my favourite way to feel, hated those thoughts, but could not change it.
Sleep was my goal and that eluded me.
Richie woke up around 11 and got me some THC, which brought the dogs in who were in good spirits.
When Richie drew back the curtains, the weather was cloudy and did not look like it would change today.
The dogs were no0t put off and played very energetically with Richie and as I had already done my arm exercises I put my arms back under the duvet and relaxed and kept warm.
It was 2 pm before I knew it, and Mathilde was here for my 30 minute exercise session, which also happened so quickly.
During the exercise session the clouds got thinner and the blue skies appeared and the sun was visibly shining.
Now it is 4.20 and the sun is starting to fade slightly, autumn is well and truly here now, the temperature is dropping daily.
I do not like the fact that summer is over and the days are shorter and the nights are darker, but on the other hand it is good that the season has changed.
There is no doubt that this is autumn, unlike previous years when it got wet but not obviously autumn.
Will be sitting in the chair in awhile, have decided that I am going to take it very easily getting used to sitting again.
Would love to go to the punk gig but have realised that 21 November is not enough time to get used to sitting without danger of reopening the wound.
Have found a gig by Biffy Clyro at the Melkweg at the beginning of December, think that this more likely concert for me to get to.
Saw Biffy Clyro on Later with Jools last month and liked them.
Well that is it for today; hope it has been a good day for everyone.
