Testing testing

Hi all. I had a pretty good day yesterday with a great visit from a wonderful young woman from a local dementia research team. she came to do a test and fill in some questionnaires on how I am doing lately. as I thought that I was on a very good day the test result was a bit disappointing as I failed as per usual but worse than usual. before we started the conversation had been about the coming weekend so we had already discussed about today being Friday but whilst talking about it I noticed that I had forgotten to move the date on my watch forward. then spent an age getting it right as I went past the 4th to start with and had to go right round again. the point of telling you this is that it was then no surprise that I scored easy points by getting the day of the week and the date right. I messed up the arithmetic and my drawing looked like a child version but hey. I told her the month was February and she agreed that was correct but fairly soon realised that maybe no, that was wrong. we had a laugh and decided that I should let her have some of my donepezil before she gets any worse.

I talked with her so long (maybe talked at would be more accurate) that we did not have time for the second survey. now she has to come back next week to get that done. yes, result, a visitor again. all part of my cunning master plan to keep social stimulation going.

the rest of the day and evening was really good as well and did involve going out during an evening which I do very little of now as everywhere seems crowded, loud and with just too many conversations going on. today was fine as I went was invited to a bowls club social club. it was quiet and calm. not quite the old type Friday night and not one I ever thought I would be on, but it was great. good start to weekend.
