Life is not at its brilliant best at the moment. I've got tendonitis in my left shoulder which means that out of my four limbs only my right arm can be reckoned to be in full working order. If I forget and raise my left arm to adjust my glasses life is very painful. I'm waiting for an appointment for a steroid injection.
Then there's the dining room/sewing room/spare bedroom. It is. to say the least, soggy. I had noticed a strange smell there for a while but couldn't track it down until I went in bare foot and found myself paddling. The radiator had been leaking and the carpet was soaked. The landlord arranged a plumber so the radiator has been drained and will be replaced next week. In the meantime I've shut the door, opened the windows and things are slowly drying out. I've moved the sewing stuff out and can hardly move in my bedroom!
But Pollyanna should be my middle name. I'm using the time while the dining room is empty to sort through the cupboards and drawers. I've claimed a new carpet on my insurance so for just the cost of my excess I'm getting a spiffy new number although it won't be fitted until the end of January so that should give me plenty time to get sorted.
And even the tendonitis is helping me to think through a few gadgets I will need to help me retain my independence as the years go by.
