Hoping For Sunshine This Afternoon.
German Painter, 1876-1907
Slept well until we were both woken up at 02.00 by Spike, who is obviously feeling better as every day or so he starts to walk around again at night.
Richie took quick action and put him straight out of the room and we both slept once more which was good, could hear that Richie was asleep just before me.
Actually quite enjoyed waking today as my arms did not get as cramped and did not feel like they were as tightly folded.
Mind you it still felt like my arms were bound up in a straightjacket but without the cramps and feeling like the straps were getting tighter.
I could stretch them relatively easily by holding on to the trapeze handle over my bed; I pull my shoulder off the mattress 12 times x 3.
Then I get Richie to loop the trapeze over the metal bar it hangs from and hang the two handles on a plastic cord.
Holding onto each helps me stretch my arms well, I do that at the beginning and end of each set of exercises by stretching my arms.
It feels really good to do these stretching exercises, now I have the handles on the plastic cord I feel my arms can stretch easier.
Much better to have the handles to hold onto, I did try and stretch my arms without any props but now it is more effective with the handles to assist me.
Sadly there is no sign of the sun yet today, all I can see is a dense grey cloud cover which
does not seem to be lifting right now.
But you never know what will happen as the day progresses, the cloud cover could lift and drift off very quickly.
Once this low weather front has passed over us a high is following behind which will bring sunshine and warm weather.
I am going to be optimistic and hope for a sunny afternoon today and pleasant warm weather.
