I returned from holiday to find that I had been paid some money through PayPal by the Cleveland Cannabis College – I am providing them with some video to show to their students. I’m going to review the video script today, in preparation for shooting the video tomorrow and Friday – the first piece of real paid work that I have had in many, many moons!
My wife walks the dog and then disappears off to work, and I get on with the task of reviewing the script. I make a number of small amendments and add a paragraph or two that I’m pretty pleased with, then send it off to my contact at the Cannabis College for his approval.
The landlord of The Vernon Arms calls at the door with a parcel that he took delivery of while we were away on holiday, and I take the opportunity to ask him for the telephone number of his log supplier. “Ah, yes, I have got his number, just haven’t got it on me” he said, “pop over to the pub and I’ll give it to you – perfect excuse for a lunchtime pint!”. And so I did… I took the dog with me, got the number of the log man, and lingered in front of the open fire with a very leisurely pint of Abbot Ale.
Tremor is breaking through on both sides (more left than right), but I’m not about to fiddle with my device settings just yet – I’m sure it’s due to travelling back from holiday, the subsequent tiredness, and the stress of actually having something specific to do! Dystonia and dyskinesia are both present and correct, but neither of them is giving me too much bother. My balance and walking seem a little better than yesterday, and so does my voice. Mood, motivation and energy are all fairly stable too. I’m feeling pretty good at the moment.
I get back from the pub to find an email from the Cannabis College approving my revisions to the script, so I’m all set to start work tomorrow.
