Autumn has arrived now. The days are chillier, though the sun is still shining most days. Hamish loves autumn in the park because he likes to roll on the ground and the crunchy leaves appear to please him. 😊
We have been enjoying the time in the park before the ground gets too wet for my buggy and we are consigned to the paths.
Once home I put my proper camera on a tripod and connected it to my phone by wifi so I could get some pictures without Hamish knowing. I didn’t expect him to look right down the lense each time he heard the zoom motor. 😆
Hamish is a handsome bloke, he looks so different from one picture to the next?
I had a slight mishap last month. I took a tumble just outside the back door! I bashed myself up a bit but like always I didn’t go to hospital. One of these days my luck will run out and I will get a proper injury. I still remember the bathroom fall from last year! That left me on the floor unable to move for several hours and feeling rough for quite a few weeks.
I had an MS clinic appointment a couple of weeks later so my nurse checked me over, she thought I possibly had a small fracture under my eye but it was stable so nothing would have been done at hospital anyway.
As I had no idea of how I fell and was confused for a while after, she advised me not to drive until I next see her in case it was a seizure. Had I shown other post seizure signs like bitten tongue loss of bladder control etc she would have had to tell me to surrender my licence again for 12 months.
Had I known at the time I was diagnosed with MS (and Epilepsy for that matter) being ill was going to be a career I would have given it a miss! 🤪 Who would have thought that some strange sensations in my leg and a very short lived numb arm in my early 20s would turn into this?
Thoughts are now turning to Christmas. Julia will be going to Spain for a week at the end of November (I hope her return isn’t delayed by snow like last year) and then the decorations go up!! I had better start thinking of things to get her. 🤔 I gave up receiving presents a few years ago, I told people there was nothing I need. It makes Christmas a more relaxed time as I am not engulfed in that dreadful giving/ getting cycle that becomes a chore, I just try to get people things I think they would like without any concerns about if it is expensive enough or too expensive.
Hopefully I won’t be lazy and there will be at least one post on here before Christmas? It is a bit early to be throwing seasons greetings around. 🎅🏻🎄
I almost forgot this; Julia asked me to retrieve a picture she had taken a few years ago from my online storage. We went to lay flowers at her mum’s grave, there was nobody there but when we looked at the picture we saw a white figure in the background!! She went back to check if there was a snowman but there wasn’t?!
A ghost for halloween 👻
