Just as the 29th of October will be the tenth anniversary of my diagnosis, tomorrow (the 26th as I write this) will be my 54th Birthday, and I recall some problems during my 53rd, not the least I demonstrated how innumerate I am by adding 5 and 3 together to make 7 :(
Oh well this last couple of days has not been too brilliant either. Yesterday I managed to scrape the paintwork on a parked car as I tried to manoever my tank of a 4wD into a tight parking spot in a supermarket, I thought I was too close to the car on the other side and when leaving more room for that one, managed to catch the side of the other one with my politically incorrect bull bars.
Oh well I don't know what that is going to cost to put right, but I expect a phone call at any time to tell me how much I owe for a paint job. Just when I am desperately short of cash as it is.
At least I gave the car owner my proper address and phone number, but not everyone does this, as later in the evening, (I presume it was overnight) I seem to have fallen victim to another motorist who can't judge distances, as I got up this morning to discover my door mirror had been smashed against the side of my door. I am not even sure I can get a proper replacement for that, I shall have to fix an odd one, like I did on the other side, (that's two of them gone now) but I suppose if I do, they will at least match again. Though it is exceedingly annoying to have to drive out to the only sort of place that keeps suitable mirrors in, and then fix it on.
Apart from that my video experiment is very close to launch. For all of those who filled in the first questionnaire what must be more than a year ago, and have watched for any signs of life, it will soon be so, after my supervisor gives it the final approval.
