I was supposed to do this entry to coincidence with one year in our new house. But as you can see it is 2 months late.
On the 7th of January we had to have Leoni our dog put down. She broke her right back leg.
Now to try and continue where I ended last blog entry.
My helper came back to work in September. To be honest since then it has been a living nightmare. She constantly forgets, doesn’t concentrate. Is more focused on home time and money. I am just a means to a financial end. If the one that covered for her when she was pregnant wasn’t related to her, she’d been fired already. So yes I am looking for a replacement with the much needed empathy and compassion required to be a care giver. The good carer helps on the weekends. We’d love to have her full time, but she works elsewhere in the week and the other issue of being related to current helper.
As I mentioned in the previous entry winter wasn’t going to be fun. Well it was not, I was cold a lot even with my aircon. The problem was largely caused by the passage to the bathroom off my room. Towards the end of winter we finally solved the problem by putting a curtain over the entrance to the passage.
I continue to play Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances.
I have been working on a new skin for a forum of which I am a member. It is a IPB version 2 forum. So it’s a lot of work to design a responsive skin since most of the html is 10 years old.
Some people have suggested to me that I consider writing about my life. I have been thinking about how I would do that, considering it will have to be dictated and then someone would have to transcribe it.
With all the power cuts towards the end of last year and at the start of this year. Friends gave me a ups which they weren’t using. It is able to run my pc for 8 hours. As well as protecting my pc from power spikes. It has been a tremendous help.
Lastly I should add, my physical condition has worsened in the last year. Needing full-time help at night isn’t far off. I sleep on my back and left side, turning onto my left side has become increasingly difficult. So we’re currently thinking about how a night time caregiver might work and how that would affect the help I need in the daytime. We had a trial run on Easter Saturday night, it went well. But the usual problems of who and how to pay are probably going to block doing anything about this.
