Good Evening

Wed did get some clouds this afternoon, which were welcome to break up the monotony and the sun even showed itself, although it is still quite cold. I was isolated as they were cleaning our community garage with high pressure water.

This is what it looked like at the beginning of the afternoon. It is still a little damp, but gradually drying out.

My upstairs neighbour helped me to shift our scooters to the hallway. I did the driving and he guided me to make sure I kept a straight path. It was not too difficult, and I am glad to say that the scooters were not too wide. I have two as one is mine and the other Mr. Swiss although he no longer needs it being in a golden oldie refuge. Mine has an attachment to hold my walker on the back and his has a small case for carrying stuff, as well as a stick holder. This evening the neighbour will be calling in to help me with returning them to the garage. My. No. 1 son helped me with shifting the cable roll for uploading the batteries. We had to make sure that it was in a place where it would not get wet.

Everyone was telling me that things happen in threes. I had to get a new mobile phone as the other was killed by a car that ran over it. Then I had a fall at home and my glasses broke. They are now repaired with the glass in a new holder and I have ordered a new pair of glasses. And now No. 3. Today my cleaning lady was here and whilst she was busy I sorted a lot of electric cables etc. that I found in a cupboard and no longer needed. I packed them in plastic bags and she took them with her to dispose of. I spent the afternoon sorting a few things, and then went out to the garden to take a few photos.

Now No. 3 catastrophe. I could not find my door key, it disappeared. Although I had a second set, this is not so good. If it really disappears then I have to pay for everyone who lives in this block (13 parties) to have their locks changed for new keys – a few thousand Swiss francs. Just after dinner I remembered I was in the garden and took a quick look. Yes, there were the keys on the ground, was I glad, I could have cried with happiness. Another lesson learned, perhaps hang you keys on a chain around your neck.

And that was another exciting day. I really hope to get out tomorrow. Today I was really isolated with no scooter to use. And now have a good remainder of the day and be careful where you put your keys.
