Jane says ‘you need to get out the house, it’s a lovely day.’ That sentiment means she needs to put my coat, scarf, hat, gloves and sheepskin cover on; it means she needs to get the powered chair out of the garage. Thank you; it’s not as if you have nothing else to do.
It was minus five this morning (that’s 23 Fahrenheit), but the warm clothing kept me warm for an hour before a hot drink inside.
It’s an interesting world where people (in this case me) go out on a frosty night to look for answers to why we are here, and who created us. I am two weeks into the Alpha Course at the local Baptist Church. Format is a meal (bangers, mash and carrots followed by plum crumble and custard), watch a pastor on screen (this week – ‘who was Jesus?’), then a group discussion. I love the mix of people there and the resulting discussion.
My Physio gets me to look ahead (not down) when walking. That, plus the anti-spasticity drug, should keep me on my feet and reduce neck pain. As I’ve written before, small adjustments can bring surprising benefits.
Another important negotiation has been concluded with a good outcome. I love how a calm, reasoned approach creates a win for everyone.
