Biting the Bullet.

Today I admitted I could no longer wash all of me.  I bit the bullet.

I was told I should get a medal.  As admittance deserved that.  Aye.  I had the great and the good at the Doctors surgery saying this.  My ankle is improving.  And I received a lot of advice.  So tomorrow morning I make appointments with Citizens Advice Bureau for info on possible funding and a local Personal Care company who will provide it.  Apparently our poor underfunded NHS has a 6 month waiting list to provide me with the personal care..... Thank you Mrs May.  Not.

After that the DP and I went to the Dunes Golf Centre cafe (no I don't play golf, although I have) for lunch.  I then went for my promenade on the promenade.

What a change in the weather.  It was cool, breezy and a spitty rain.  But I walked.

Beach deserted.

Apart from the Gull gang.

Weather forecast for tomorrow and the days after is good.  

Did a wee bit of painting.  And a bit of salting too.  This gives the texture for what the Shag is standing on.

Looking forward, which I must do to hang on to, the final quote for double glazing the shedudio is in and acceptable.  

Also considering the future, which I must do, is to reduce the amount of stuff I do for others as I can no longer provide to the levels I would want to.

Biting the Bullet.

I'm glad you got to promenade today. The forecast is good for down here for several days now.....but the garden needs rain.

I hope it does not take to long to get the cares you need. I had someone come in to help my late husband with showering, although it was dressing that he needed the help with.

I understand how you can't get to wash all over, we have just had to get the chiropadist to do Toms feet because he can't bend over without being breathless. Bummer isn't it, but just best to get on with it. It's good that you have your painting, like me with my needlework its a life saver to have something that grips you and makes the days worthwhile.
I have to say that your paintings are brilliant.

A six month waiting list is a disgrace, what are you supposed to do in the meantime? I am in the process of getting quotes for my outbuilding to become a craft room, the glazing is so expensive.

I too have had to bite the bullet today, telling the DVLA I have Parkinson's Disease. Not an easy task but has to be done. So now we have bitten bullets we can now move onto the better stuff.
