Snow makes me sad

It was snowing when I woke up this morning. Thankfully, I’d already had a bit of a warning because my friend had txt me. I think we all know by now how I feel about snow. It’s hard for me to get around in, even if there’s only a little bit on the ground. Cold makes my muscles tighter and I have more bad Cerebral Palsy days. I don’t like it. Nope.

It was coming down pretty hard when I woke up, but it wasn’t really sticking at least. There wasn’t much natural light in my house, and there still isn’t really. I’m just demotivated to do anything.

I’m still really tired too, but hopefully I’ll manage to get myself going soon and have a productive day.

Giving it a bit longer

I had another acupuncture appointment the other day. My acupuncturist was really pleased when  I told her that I’d hardly had any hip pain at all between appointments.

We’ve decided now that we’re going to try leaving a bit of a longer gap until my next session and see how that goes. It’s been aching a bit more over the last couple of days, but I’m interested to see how things are once it settles down again.

Speaking of settling down, my backache from my the start of the week has now gone again like I thought it would, even if it did take a little longer than I thought it might.

In other news, we had some snow and ice here this morning. On what fun.

Oh, snow!

Every winter, I dread the arrival of the stuff they call snow. Some years we don’t get any and sometimes we do.

I find it really hard to walk around outside when it hits. During these times I often don’t leave the house without someone with me for the fear that I will fall or get myself stuck somewhere.When I do go out, I take someone with me, and I use my wheelchair instead of my walking frame.

Earlier I noticed that things suddenly got very dark outside. At first I think it was raining really hard and then I noticed there was white stuff falling from the sky. At first I thought that it might have been hailstones because they were drumming quite hard against the window, it still might have been to start with, I’m not too sure. I wandered over to the window to take a look and noticed that the stuff falling from the sky seemed to look softer than before. I stood watching it come down for a few moments and the roofs of nearby houses started to get dusted in a fine white powder, as did the road and pavement.

It was snow.

Then, as quickly as it started, it stopped again. I think It’s all gone from the pavement and the road now, but there’s still a little bit on the houses.

I’m hoping that that will be the end of our snow for this year, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we got some more.
