Misty February .Day.
Today is a very misty day, it was foggy at first but that cleared somewhat, it won't be a bright day today but maybe tomorrow.
Slept until the cold and the sound of the lorry winching the container up to empty its contents woke me up before 8 am.
Luckily Richie got up then and went to the toilet when he came back I told him that was cold, and asked him for a blanket and could he shut the window.
Soon as Richie had closed the window and put a blanket on me I felt warm again and slept on without any problems for another 2 ½ hours which was wonderful.
As soon as I was awake at 10.30 I did my arm exercises, my arms were very stiff and painful, but once I had done the exercise I could stretch my arms which was good.
Funny how I have become used to living with pain, I am aware of it all the time just now do not give it any time.
I have accepted that the pain that I feel is my nerves sending wrong messages, which does not mean it hurts less.
What it means for me is that I understand what is happening and won’t let it get to me too much.
As soon as Richie did my leg exercises and massage and I was ready for the day, but first a cuddle with Spike.
Spike has been so good since he is locked up, we do let him out regularly for cuddles and of course to go around the block and eat
Every time Spike is out Richie has to quickly close the gate to stop Marleen nipping in and stealing anything she can find.
She is not put off by the door being closed, each time she gives it a through once over, as she is desperate to get her nose in and flick the bolt back.
When she could not do this she growled at it and still kept going trying to find the right angle so she can crack it.
This morning was the same, as soon as Richie had brought Spike in here, he got Spike out for his good morning cuddle.
Poor Spike had to go back in quite quickly as he could not bear Marleen cruising around eagerly eyeing up his chew and his toys.
Poor Spike he has to stay quiet for four weeks, four weeks of Marleen planning to burgle his prison.
