Relaxed Day.












Glaswegian Art.

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.

I'm glad the toys make Spike feel better! It's hard when they don't understand. I know with Winston it's rough for him losing his sight and hearing all at once. I'm glad you're enjoying the evening! The snowstorm turned out to be all bark and no bite here!
Have a nice Friday!!

HI Herrad:)

Greetings and good wishes:)

Many,many thanks for giving one award to me.I am most delighted.

There were too many weddings I had to attend in the past few weeks. First,my son's wedding, then a friend's son's wedding,then another friends's daughter's wedding and then my brother's son's wedding.I will be posting some photos shortly.To go from place to place to attend these weddings and at the same time to cope with the business I have was quite challenging.

It is interesting to read your day's activity and how beautifully you are managing each day.The photos are lovely.

My prayers and best wishes Herrad:)

I feel for Tony Blair. I feel that he was caught up in the same hoopla that our President Bush was, and I feel that it was instigated by VP Dick Cheney and his minions.

Oh, if our country would just hold George W. Bush accountable for all the travesties he committed while in office. But No - it will only come out as history unfolds.

Thank you for the award, I consider you to be my friend and I think of you each day.

Stay Warm and Be well.
