And a wonderful morning today, although it is now almost lunchtime here. The cleaning lady is here and I have been busy joining her in a few tasks like freshening up windows and generally making order in the apartment. The sun rose a long while ago and my buddleia bush is really looking good out in the garden.
I took a shopping trip into town yesterday. It is really good to get out into the fresh air and see a little action. I am glad to say that my wheelchair is functioning normally after my power failure on Sunday It’s good to see some action in town.
I just had to take a photo of our cathedral (again) yesterday. The clouds were really giving the view a good angle. As I was wheeling to the catherdral I cast a glance down the alley next to it.
It leads to our pedestrian bridge over the river. Cars are not allowed on the bridge, but once every Summer a tourist takes a wrong turn and drives onto the bridge. It even gets into the local newspaper and is quite fun for us locals to see. Luckily I am allowed to wheel over it. The building on the right is our best hotel, the Crown hotel and on the left you can see the beginnings of the steps leading up to the cathedral.
Mr. Swiss is now getting the hang of his scooter. He decided he needed sun glasses for summer, and this morning he was quite brave and told me he was going into town to the opticians to organise a pair. He got home about half an hour ago and I was quite proud of him. It does need confidence to drive around with these vehicles in town. I remember when I first had my wheelchair, I had to get used to the various journeys with it. After two and half years I know where the good driving surfaces are and when it is best to cross the road. He told me he even parked in town next to the opticians. Tomorrow he has his next journey to the dentist.
And look who arrived in our garden yesterday afternoon. Actually Roschti, the neighbours cat, often spends an hour relaxing here. I noticed when he comes he always approaches me and rubs his body on my legs as he walks past. I do not really think he misses my Tabby, they were never the best of colleague, but probably Tabby’s food bowl. I still have a bowl of fresh water outside for any animals that might pass by. I am sure the hedgehogs appreciate it at night.
And now I am off. Dinner is cooking and No. 1 son will soon be home for lunch. Have a good day everyone, keep safe.
