Sunny Saturday.

This cold has me feeling pretty crap today; notice my index finger is already not working too well.

Also have been noticing that my body is slumping even more, this is as a result of spending so much time in bed.

It is a double edged sword, have to stay in bed until the tiny tear in my skin has healed over, can’t sit in my wheelchair until then
Really need to sit soon as it is not good for me to spend too much longer in bed, have been in bed since August 2008.

From 29 October I could finally sit again and move around in my wheelchair, and typically just as I was hoping the weather was getting milder and I could to get out Richie discovered a tiny tear in my skin.

Now I am trying to wait patiently while my body is noticeably deteriorating, it is very difficult to see this and to keep being positive.

Doing my best to do both, some days are easier than others, this cold has wiped me out, luckily I slept well last night thanks to thc and eucalyptus oil.

Managed to go to sleep and stay asleep until the rubbish containers were being emptied into waiting trucks.

This always happens at 7.30 to 8 am on Saturdays, was pleased I went back to sleep again until 10 am.

We needed the extra sleep because we stayed up late to watch the Skeleton Bob Sledge, Amy Williams gold won very well.

All the skeleton bob sledge competitors were excellent, what surprised me was that I enjoyed this sport when the Luge Bob Sledge really worried me.

Going take it very easy today, must remember to take paracetamol and drink lots of liquids and eat fruit, hope to be better by Thursday next week.

Well the clouds have blown away and the sunshine is back, it makes everything look so munch better.

I intend to relax and enjoy he sunshine and the radio, as soon as Richie is back from he market we will be watching football on the TV.

Have a good weekend everyone.

I hope the cold goes away quickly Herrad! I hate being under the weather...but yes, the sunshine always helps! :) I was watching the skeleton too, head first down the luge track is insane to me, but I still enjoyed it! I recorded the ice dancing, so I'm going to watch that today! :)

Dear Herrad,
many getting well wishes for you. Glad that you were able to see the sun on Saturday, as for a couple of days it was nearly totally missing, as huge dust and sand cloud did arrive from Africa, making the sky somehow bleached.
Wishing a wonderful start into the new week for you all.

Hope the clouds of dust are gone now and the sun is visible again.

Thanks both of you for coming by.
