Today Was A Lovely Day.
Got up at 10.00 this morning and was showered and dressed by my darling Richie for 11.30 and did my 30 minutes on the Motomed, was ready for the appointment at 12.15 with Johanneke, my occupational therapist.
She was here at 12.15 and was very apologetic about the miscommunications and the resulting delays; she promised it would not happen again.
She also promised to send me a cc on all correspondence relating to me, which she did today, seems she already got several things sorted today.
Such as my new bed which goes up at the head end which should allow me to sit up better, that is something of a bonus for me especially if it works well.
I will also get another appointment for the IPaq, the Home Servant; this lets me switch on lights and turn on the TV and DVD player, makes the bed go up and down and sits me up.
There are some teething troubles so they need to return, Johanneke has organised the next appointment for 13 October.
She will be here for an hour to check that all will be well installed and adjusted, think this is a great idea.
As at the first appointment two software nerds came here who could only install but not communicate and inform us as to what they would do.
The result was a few things I/we did not want and which did not work very well, such as two lights in the kitchen area which do not work at all anymore.
And doors I can only open if I am right in front of them and other bits and pieces, am very optimistic that with Johanneke here on the 13 October, it should all go better.
After the appointment we had a nice tasty brunch and then went out at about 15.00 for a walk/roll around the neighbourhood.
It was lovely and sunny weather with a slight cool breeze which did not bother me as I was wearing my new red fleece jacket.
We had a really good time; it was brilliant going out this afternoon and enjoying the sun on my face, my darling Richie bought a few pretty plants, all in all a very good afternoon.
