â€˜My lovelyâ€™ birthday. It was a beautiful summer’s day and we had lunch in garden. Although the ramps have yet to be installed, the good doctor managed to manoeuvre the wheelchair over the front doorstep and across the brick paving get me to the lunch table outside. Darling Chloe arrived mid-morning and spent the day with us,. killing two birds with one stone. Celebrating Mater’s birthday and spending a little time with the good doctor who has kindly cared for me from time to time. That â€˜my lovelyâ€™ is much loved was demonstrated by the number of cards and presents given to her, despite her saying that she really didn’t need or want anything.
In between times I managed to get quite a lot of work done on my laptop including sending details of my first invention to the patent lawyers in order to protect it before it is presented to the two firms who Â have already been contacted by Coventry University.
No problems in moving about, between the good doctor manhandling me and my reliance on the pulpit frame. I am relatively pain-free and anticipate becoming ambulantÂ relatively quickly after the removal of cast.
We concluded, what had been a beautiful day, with a bottle of champagne celebrating the birthday girl and also the arrival of the good doctor.
