Singing while it Rains.
Trinidadian Art to cheer up a wet December Day.
Slept well last night and even had a reasonably quiet waking up, felt all the usual pains but somehow did not moan as much today.
My arms were very tense and painful so I did the arm exercises quickly before I did not want to do them.
Really enjoyed Richie doing the leg exercises and massage today.
Not a nice day, grey, dingy looking day and lots of rain and wind.
Just when I thought we had got rid of all the post a whole load more arrived.
Had to hang on the phone twice for ages, first just trying to make a selection in their long list.
I have worked on a couple of these customer service desks and they were horrible, waiting to be helped is also not good.
Horrible piped music and a tinny voice saying every minute that there are x people waiting and you are number 10.
It could be a thousand that is how long it feels I waited, and then finally a real person spoke to me.
After all that time it turns out they could not give me a conclusive answer on the phone today and I have to call back next week Wednesday.
At least the music was not too bad, plus it was not as loud as it often is, but still at the end I felt drained.
Was glad Richie and the dogs arrived back from the Amsterdam woods, the dogs are very happy and ate their dinner happily and a re now lying luxuriantly on their beds cleaning their paws.
Have not been out today but plan to go into the front room later and watch Richie put up the red Christmas tree.
First a quick spruce up and do my Motomed leg exercises and then a bowl of stew.
It has been raining all day here some stew and dumplings are very welcome.
