Pleasant Saturday.

Welsh Art.

It has been a glorious sunny day here in Amsterdam I actually felt very warm when I woke up.

So warm that my first thought was that the catheter was blocked again but Richie reassured me that everything was fine and it was the weather that was warm not me.

The temperature really has gone up now which is nice, just hope it does not become too hot too quickly as there is nothing worse than sudden huge changes in the temperature with MS.

Think we need to get a better fan, so when it gets as hot as it did last year we can keep cool; found out last year that ventilation is a big priority for me.

Noticed that I was both excited and quite worried when I heard on Wednesday that I could sit in the wheel chair again.

After my shower this morning I sat for the second time in the wheelchair which was good, it was the anticipation of sitting again that had worried me and not the event itself.

Sitting in my wheelchair to use the Motomed was much better than sitting in the shower chair which gives me no support whatsoever.

In the shower chair I lean very badly to the right, Richie tries to make this better for me by putting a pillow between me and the arm of the chair which helps a little bit.

The wheelchair is better for me as the back has been modulated to give me the support that I need

Enjoying sitting in the wheelchair even more this time than last October, guess the extra time in bed has made me very keen.

I sent yet another mail to Online yesterday, with an overview of all payments that I have made since the beginning of the year.

They insist that every month they try to get the subscription by a direct debit on Richie’s account, which is weird as they have not had a penny since 2006 from any other account but mine

Spent the afternoon relaxing, did not start writing this until about 9 pm after enjoying watching the football.

It is nearly the end of the season so all the games were fast and furious which made for good watching.

Found myself hoping that Manchester City would beat their big rivals Manchester United, it was a huge battle and looked like it would end in 0-0.

Then in the last minute Paul Scholes got the winning goal for Manchester United, their fans were very happy, while the City fans looked gutted.

It really was a tremendous game which was good as so often local Derbys can be dull as one team will get hold of the ball and effectively shutthe game down.

Brilliant that today was different, not looking forward to my team Arsenals game tomorrow, as there is alot riding on these last games
Hope that I will be able to watch tomorrow, as quite often I use the laptop screen to hide behind but not tomorrow.

Well time to find pictures and post this before Match of the Day on BBC 2 which I am going to enjoy without the laptop in front of me.

I remembered how you suffered in that humidity and heat last summer, which reminds me to put "fan" on my shopping list for after my move! It gets really hot and humid up in the mountains,you wouldn't think so, but it's hotter than the city some days!
Enjoy your football!!!

Hasn't been raining for now nearly two months and during the weekend temperature reached nearly 30C... makes one indeed long for the North of Europe.
Please have you all a wonderful start into the new week.
