Relaxing Wednesday

Wednesday is here again and after yesterday it is nice to know that today is going to be a relaxing day, which is just as well as tomorrow is going to be another busy day. I went down to see Gervase and Leanne yesterday evening, had a nice couple of hours with them also Leanne,s dad Dave was there and he gave me a lift home afterwards so that was nice of him.

Well I had a very good nights sleep last night, it was a lot cooler last night so that helped also I was out for 3+ hours yesterday as well in the fresh air and was walking with the wheelchair for about an hour, anyway went to bed about 11.00 and woke about 6.30 so that was good, stayed dozing until 8.00 them made a move into the lounge with a coffee to wait for Jo the carer to arrive. Jo came at 8.30 and got be sorted and then was off to her next client so I got some " Fruit and Fibre for Breakfast and then sent the morning text to Pauline.

Pauline phones back and she is out on the common with Misty, which is an appropriate name for today as though it is cooler today and the skies are blue and the sun is shining down on the seafront it is a different story, Pauline said that she is on the common but cannot see the war memorial as it is very misty, you can see this by the Photo from the live web cam at Portsmouth harbour

So it is time to see how the Olympic Torch Relay is progressing today, it is on day 12 today and is going from Chester to Stoke on Trent. here we can see it crossing the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on the Llangollen Canal where over 3000 people gathered to cheer it across.

Well the Mist is lifting now and the blue skies and Sun are appearing from behind the clouds which is a good thing as today there is a fly past by over HMS Illustrious at Portsmouth Dockyard to celebrate its 30th Birthday, its non stop fun here in Portsmouth. Lady Sarah Chatto, Daughter of the late Princess Margaret inspected the guard of honour.

Well the day has passed very quickly and it has been a very relaxing day, I had a nice lunch of Salmon and Crisp Breads, and also a very nice Yoghurt, I have also spent some time working out the format for my new website I am working on " Myositis Awareness" I am planning on having this on line by the end of August. I have got the header graphic completed and also the logo.

The time is now approaching 4.30 and it is time to pack up the computer and get ready for Pointless on BBC1 at %.15 and then dinner at 6.30. Tonight I am having a nice Rainbow trout fillet with Jersey Royal new Potato,s and cauliflower and broccoli in a nice Cheese Sauce, all freshly cooked. I am looking forward to that and then a nice evening in front of the TV. The Olympic torch is still being greeted by huge crowds as it makes its way towards Stoke on trent with large crowds in Ironbridge.
The last Picture for today is Todays "Day in History" todays date is the 30th May 1631 and took place in France.

Well I really must get this Journal posted today so until tomorrow I will say Au Revoir
