It’s been a long day having first woken up at 00:30

Welcoming life despite difficulties

It’s been a long day having first woken up at 00:30 unable to feel the right hand-side of my body. It was safe to remain in bed rather than seek support by life line service.

I took this approach because when medics had attended previously, it was decided that these experiences are common to myself and therefore no further action is required. By around 2 am I managed to return to sleep and being awoken by dawn chorus at 4:09 I stayed awake since.

At 9:30 my support worker Claire, arrived and we went on a supportive trip to purchase supplies for my lockdown project. Those eagle-eyed could have spotted it in the background of my video at 4:35.  

Support worker Monika and I have discussed when the big reveal will be for my lockdown project. Stay tuned to find out.

Lockdown but not for much longer

Lockdown but not for much longer

Today I’ve been working on my lockdown project with the support from Claire and encouragement from Monika. The lockdown project which will be revealed soon is taking shape. My support dogs Sophie and Luke are watching closely and supervise the work so it’s at a good standard.

We’ve had a lot of work to do which keeps us away from mischief. Stay tuned to this channel to learn more.

If you think lockdown was bad, try living with Luke

If you think lockdown was bad, try living with Luke

It’s been a busy few days. We’ve been receiving several deliveries and the curtain twitching neighbours could think something dodgy was going on in my garden. I have bought a lot of things on-line, sometimes being stuck at home for half a day so as not to miss a 4-hour delivery window. The deliveries were of the components for my special lockdown project which will be revealed in a week or two.

In other news, I do wish Luke; the French bulldog’s flatulence problems will be gone soon. You can smell him from 200 yards, and it is one of the things I can’t escape from during lockdown. I love the dog to pieces, but I do not want to share his personal issues. He does not understand the concept of personal space either, I’d like him to keep his bodily smells to himself.

I’m still missing going to the gym but support worker Monika has been assisting me with health and fitness by assuring I get a good deal of exercise in the evening by walking the dogs. Hopefully, I’ll manage to keep away the 2 stones of weight I have lost recently rather than putting them back on.
