Good news and Not Such Good News.
Today it getting dark early, it is 3 pm now and already it looks like the light that was there is going.
It might even snow again, it was snowing merrily at mid day, and it has got colder, cold enough for the snow to happen again.
Ton arrived punctually as always and as usual looking cheerful and dapper; it is nice to see him.
We both feel he has become a valued friend, in the time he has been coming here to supervise the wound and supporting Richie and myself plus giving Richie invaluable advice.
Today he told us that it has got even smaller, he will not give an estimate when it will be healed up again, but hope as we do that it is soon.
Been quite a busy day today, we had someone from Welzorg to replace one of the wheels on the wheelchair, followed by a visit from Harm also from Welzorg and Michelle my consultant, from ARCA, to discuss protection for my legs.
They have ordered a bag with thermo lining that goes up to my waist in front and up to the back of my knees.
Sounds pretty good, I like the idea of my legs being protected and kept as warm as possible and it sounds like this will do the trick.
They were both very pleasant and helpful; Michelle stayed for ten minutes after Harm had left, so she could have a chat and also check whether I needed something else.
Very nice for them both to be so attentive really appreciate it very much.
Sad news though, the wonderful man from Summit, Elwin has left his job, so as soon as I can sit again we will proceed with another advisor.
Shame as Elwin was so good, I am sure that his replacement is also a well trained person, with the necessary people skills as Elwin had.
So bad news and good news and more snow, if it comes down like this all late afternoon and evening we could have another winter wonderland.
The canals are all frozen over again and the skaters will be getting excited, if there is a prolonged freeze they can dream of doing the race that goes via 11 Friesian towns called the II Steden Tocht.
