Being away from home, even for just one night, makes me appreciate the comfortable bed that we have at home. I slept well.
We get up at 7.30am. My wife is out of the door on her way to work by 8.30am, and I settle down on the sofa with my iPad to respond to a number of emails that are awaiting my attention. I also have a think about what I’m going to tweet about today – I am tweeting (on Twitter) from the @parkinsons52 account all this week and feel the need to provoke some discussion, so I decide to tweet about DBS and prescription medication (or, rather, non-prescription medication – cannabis).
My elderly next door neighbour has now gone into a care home, and has sent a message requesting some more clothing be collected from his house and delivered to the care home. I go next door, sort out his (mostly junk) mail, and pile clean clothing on his bed, ready to be bagged up and taken to him.
I walk the dog, split some logs and fill the log basket, light the fire, vacuum downstairs, and that’s about all I can manage today. I’m feeling tired from the last couple of days, and my legs and arms are aching. Tremor is still there in my left leg, but it’s manageable. I’m feeling quite rigid today, probably from being sat in the car all day yesterday, and find sitting down and standing up a bit more of a challenge than usual. I decide to lubricate myself with a beer!
