Today really is a day of two halves, from early this morning it has been another grey miserable overcast day, not a summer day.
This afternoon it was time to change my catheter, it was one month and two days since the last change, this time again it took ages.
I was lying on the shower chair for what seemed to be hours, Richie got the old one out with no problem which I hardly felt, but getting a new one back in proved to be a big problem.
Richie kept trying and trying various ways to insert a catheter, finally he stopped and got another catheter which went in at his first attempt, it was a thinner catheter.
Our ordeal was over and Richie could proceed with showering me and getting me dressed and back into bed.
After hours spent in the bathroom it was lovely to come back into the bedroom and find that it was looking much nicer outside then earlier in the afternoon.
At six o'clock the clouds were gone, the sky was blue and it was sunny, I hope the temperatures are not going to shoot up too quickly.
But it really is amazing because the weather has been early autumn weather since May and not at all the sort of weather you expect to get in the summer.
Today it feels like late April or early May when things are just starting to improve, instead of the 26th of June.
The trees around us have already got yellow leaves, I've been hearing from friends that flowers have not blossomed and other plants have gone yellow.
It really feels like autumn rather than summer, in some ways I'm not unhappy about this as I still have not heard when the council will finally install the air conditioning for me.
Mostly it is out of my mind and then every now and again it pops back into my mind, especially when the weather looks like its improving.
I'm dreading the temperature rocketing from 18° today to in the 30s tomorrow, it usually happens like that and I can't cope with it any more.
Sad that I can't cope with hot weather, which is dreadful for me, it really is, especially as I have always loved it being hot, being a Trinidadian I adored hot summers.
At the first sign of good weather I would be straight into my shorts and skimpy T-shirt as soon as I got home from work.
Nowadays when it is hot, it makes me feel very uncomfortable, so much so that I yearn for cool weather which surely can't be right for a Trini, how I wish I could still enjoy the heat of summer.
