Well what do you know I can sleep after all. As you know I have been having problems trying to get any sleep at all for a little while now but for some unknown reason I managed to get about 9 hours sleep last night with only one wake up for some light relief then straight back to the land of nod. I was tired around 10pm which is about usual and decided to turn off the light and turn down the TV and try and get some sleep and the next thing I know it was 3am and time for a pee. This is usually it for me once I have woken up I never get back to sleep but surprise surprise my head hit the pillow and I was out like a light. I think it has made a difference today as I seem to have a bit more energy but not so much that I can do anything with it mind you.
My eye has been a bit irritable today, not sore as such or painful, it’s a feeling like I have some foreign object stuck in between my lid and eye. It’s still a ghostly shade of red and subject to some strange looks when I was at my most favourite food store this evening.
I decided after last weeks outing to Tesco’s and the sheer amount of bodies whether staff or customers that were getting in my way, that Friday afternoon might not be a good time to go shopping and that Me and my Helper Tara would try to navigate our way around this evening instead. Well I’m happy to say that it was a lot quieter although the shelves were a bit emptier as it looked like the shelf filling staff weren’t due in en mass until a bit later on. We managed to get pretty much everything that we needed for the week and no doubt a load of stuff we really didn’t need at all but just had to have. I’m a sucker for a bargain whether I need it or not. All went a bit too smooth really, that is until we were on our way back to the car, which incidentally I managed to pull straight into one of the 5 empty Disabled Parking Bays so I cant even rant about that, when the trolley attached to the front of the wheelchair came to a sudden halt nearly throwing me over the top. She’d only gone and pushed me HEAD ON into a Bollard, not just caught it either, smack bang in the middle of the trolley leaving a nice big dent. “I didn’t see it coming “she said, well I didn’t realise they actually moved as far as I was aware they were actually concreted into the pavement. I think she is trying to bump me off on the quiet but many have tried and failed so “GO ON, GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT”!!!
I might try out my other new toy tomorrow. Its all Peter’s fault as he quite often mentions Ironing in his Blog. Well up till now there has been no way I could stand up and do any ironing not that I’m complaining too loudly mind you. But I thought that maybe there is a way I can at least do a little and therefore ease the burden a bit on Judith. So I went and bought a Steam Press which has its own stand too. I can sit on the chair and press away to my hearts content and it shouldn’t cause me any breathing problems as there is very little movement involved. I tried it out the other day when it arrived and it seems to go a much better job and in less than half the time too so could be a good thing, I will have to let you know.
