Yesterday was a good day, really enjoyed seeing Antje in the afternoon, so glad that Richie had found my disabled parking permit on Tuesday night.
Meant that Antje could park right outside for nothing which is good, otherwise it is approximately 3 euro’s per hour.
She was here for 3 hours which would have cost Antje 9 euro’s for her visit to us, real relief when Richie found it between some old letters.
While Antje was here another friend, Eva came by, which was a pleasant surprise as people generally do not pop by spontaneously.
Everyone here makes appointments, these days they are easier to cope with as we do need to know when I need to be ready by.
In England, I was more used to friends popping by and surprising me, nowadays life is sadly more organised, guess it has to be with MS.
Need to let friends here know that we really would appreciate seeing them lots more, more visitors is best, as it is not good for either of us to get too isolated.
Easy enough to do especially as we do enjoy each others company so very much, that it is easy enough to forget to organise visitors.
This was no problem when we were both working and seeing plenty of people during the day, plus we could go out in the evenings.
Life has changed so much these days having MS, that I really need to remember that in order for life to be ‘spontaneous’ I have to get organised.
First step is to let our friends know they are very welcome here and we love and appreciate their friendship and support.
