Last night I was having trouble keeping my eyes open and was drifting off to sleep until the very moment when Richie put the music on and switched the light off.
At the same time as the light went off I seemed to wake up instantly and the music instead of helping me to sleep was waking me up.
Eventually I drifted off to sleep and slept very well until a spasm and noise from outside woke me up.
Everything hurt as soon as I was fully awake, so I very bravely did my arm exercises quickly in order to ease the stiffness and pain.
The exercises do seem to help so I do them diligently every day, think it is also good for my mind, gives me the feeling of doing something for myself which is good.
We were both very slow and dreamy today, so had a nice slow start to the day, which was pleasant for a change.
Richie brought his coffee in the bedroom and we chatted, with the radio on in the background.
Today Radio Five are reporting live from the Iraq Inquiry, Tony Blair is answering questions as to why he decided to take the UK into this war.
It has been clear to me for a long time that we would only hear what Blair wants us to hear, this enquiry will bring us no nearer the truth.
We will only get the official story.
Richie has been very busy today doing the shopping, he made the dogs happy by taking them to the pet shop for supplies of tripe, pigs ears, chews and two new toys.
Spike is overjoyed with the new toys, nice to see him happily playing with toys, a ball and a small tire.
He was quite sad this morning when he could not jump up and give me his toy, he does not understand why he can't play like he used to only a month ago.
Poor wee dog, so new toys have given him a huge boost which is nice to see and given us one too.
It has been a grey overcast day here, getting colder again too, makes me wonder whether the snow they are having in England will be here tonight or tomorrow.
Guess we will see, meanwhile it is dark outside, it is 5.30 pm and Friday evening has begun, I intend to enjoy it.
