More good things (on a roll here)

 Apart from the fact that I was absolutely shattered, having had another really bad night, it was quite a good day yesterday.  I thought I'd better start off with having a look at the Carers Allowance form online - my brain functions best in the mornings.....however, if it was too long or difficult, then I'd save it for another day.  One where I'd had more sleep the night before!  Well, amazingly, the form was an absolute doddle - easy, short, no difficult (or even husband's medical) questions to answer, just basic information really, it took me all of 10 minutes.  Such a relief.  I should hear back within 6 weeks.

And then in the afternoon, the post brought a letter offering me a physiotherapy appointment - I rang as requested and the appointment is.....Tuesday next week.  An actual face to face appointment.  The last time I had NHS physio it was only telephone appointments - that was during Covid, and a phone appointment for physio is as much use as a chocolate teapot.  I had one appointment and then declined any more, it was ridiculous trying to do exercises relayed to me over the phone and then tell them how I was feeling - how on earth did I (or they) know I was doing them right?!  Having waited around 5 months for an appointment, I'm amazed that I've been given one for next week, I fully expected them to say it would be February or even March.

And my sister, who as you may remember lives up in the Midlands and we don't see each other very often, today said she and her friend would like to come down and stay for a week in April or May.  That'll be lovely.....we'll spend a few days at home, and a few at the caravan, as she's not seen it in real life yet.  The van isn't big enough for them to stay with us, but there's a Premier Inn right next door to the Park, so they could sleep there and spend the days with us at the van.  I know sister's friend well, they've been friends for years, they've been down to stay with us before.  Looking forward to it already.

And I slept pretty well last night!

Thank you all for the kind and supportive comments, it means such a lot to me.
