MS fatigue can be a real drag, eating into my days and stopping me doing the things that I want to do! Lately I have been having 3 or 4 naps per day on top of sleeping 8 or 9 hours during the night! The trouble is that some of my Epilepsy medication contributes to the tiredness. That’s the moaning out of the way so now the positive stuff. Being too exhausted to walk has meant that I have filled my days with reading, I have re-read 2 more books by Anna Nicholas, “Goats from a small island” and “Donkeys on my doorstep” which has helped pass my awake time nicely. I also read an inspiring book by Rosie Swale Pope, called “Just a small run around the world” which as the title suggests is about an epic run around the world. Rosie took 5 years to complete a solo unsupported 20,000 mile run in honour of her late husband and to raise awareness about cancer. The only downside to Rosie’s book is it made me realise how lazy I am and just how often I feel sorry for myself! :-D
I managed a morning of fishing last week, it was a beautiful sunny day which always make fishing a pleasure. I was quite successful catching 9 bream and 2 tench as well as masses of tiddlers. all were returned safely to the lake so that I can catch them again another day. :-)
I like to catch Tench as they put up a good fight for their size, unlike Bream who get dragged in like a soggy rag. :-D
In other good news, My driving licence finally arrived 19 months after I surrendered it. Despite being told by the DVLA several months ago that I could resume driving I found I couldn’t get insurance until I had actually received my licence? My friend is sorting the car out this week and taking it for the MOT and then I am “normal” again.
