better late than never

I have been very busy and been neglecting the website for too long, Internet troubles are only partly to blame.  The extension is complete and I am waiting for blinds and curtains before I can move the bed in (we still only have a single bed because the authorities will not fund a double bed and the cash for that as well as everything else is not freely available).  I have been having showers in our wonderful new wet room in the Sahara themed tiled environment (sandstone style titles with Moroccan coloured mosaic border), and the kitchen with its solid beech worktop, cream-coloured units and brown mottled kitchen tiles above a Oak styled vinyl flooring.  I persevered with wanting carpets in both bedrooms (one for the carer) and so we have a lovely brown patterned carpet covering underneath our wonderful ceiling track hoist leading into the bathroom.  The walls are in satin rose (pink… ahem, at least Ellenwill be happy in the bedroom) the corridor and kitchen walls are in white and the entrance hall is in a slightly pinky off-white colour called Blossom White.  Overall it is an amazing, spacious and warm environment with an incredible patio outside narrowing to a path leading to the pavilion which is under construction now and should take only a few weeks longer.


I have been battling with more uti infections, and looking forward/been nervous about the new job starting in October 6th.  I have to learn a lot about wireless security different types of networks and the new long-term evolution (4g) Telecom standard.  My home wireless network is getting increasingly complex and are now looking at ways of mounting my mini 9 inch laptop onto my wheelchair and powering it and my wireless headset from my wheelchair battery.


I have had incredible luck with allocated carers, the most recent live-in carer being Candice a wonderful, listening warmhearted soul who is endlessly tactful and looks after my every need.  The previous one was Rachel, a down-to-earth strong and bubbly character with a quick wit.  Hopefully I will see both of these in the future if I’m lucky.


Still battling for various bits of equipment and working hard at keeping myself healthy, one of the biggest annoyances at the moment is the length of time it takes me to get up in the morning.  I seem to take a while to acclimatise to being upright, and my shower chair is completely unsuitable and provides skin problem risk.


I have been to various weddings and birthday parties recently and spent every possible moment in the sun when it decides to appear as well spending a lot of time sleeping.  Off to bed now as it’s getting late, I might read a page or two of my book about the American physicist Feynman, fascinating.
