Enjoying Any Independance I Can.
Slept well last night did not wake this time in the early hours calling for an extra blanket as I have done since the beginning of the week.
It is already cold enough at night for us to start sleeping under duvets again; this was quite a shock last night.
Amazing to need duvets on the 27 August, because of the hot weather last year it was end of October last year before we needed extra warmth.
This morning started well with beautiful sunshine which soon made way for dark clouds and thunder and lighting and lots of rain.
This cycle has been repeated several times; Richie went out around the block with the dogs and said it was cold despite the sun.
Oh well the end of our summer and the start of spring in New Zealand and Australia, heard from my good friend Jeannette from NZ telling me about the first signs of spring there.
Sadly when they came to install the software on Tuesday they left the back of my wheelchair open.
This apparently is exposing wires which means that going out in wet weather could affect the wheelchair badly, it could actually stop working.
Richie has rushed around getting the shopping done before the next huge deluge which the gathering dark clouds seem to promise.
Despite the weather and lots of spasms and pain I intend to enjoy today very much, my darling Richie is making chicken curry for me tonight.
Looking forward to dinner later and watching some good football, watched a DVD on Wednesday Little Miss Sunshine which I enjoyed very much, especially switching the DVD player on and off.
Enjoying any independence I can and hoping for more with the intercom for the front doors of the apartment and the building.
