Before today, I could have sworn Autumn was setting in early. We've had very weird weather for July and early August - cool westerly breezes, temperatures under 30C and sometimes quite nippy evenings with condensation on the car in the morning. Now, hey presto, the Levante is back and with it more typical August weather.....beached whale, reading on the bed - get the picture.
Nearly 3 months down the line and el jefe's back is much improved yet not back to normal. Weekly physio, massage, TENs and daily exercises have ensured a steady gain in independence to the point where I gently (as if) remind him not to lift anything nor do too much.
Paco and Manolo came and spent 5 hours cleaning up and restoring order in the garden - what treasures those two are. My Spanish has improved no end with the need to communicate with Paco and the masoterapia clinic where el jefe goes every week.
Ill health earlier in the year and el jefe's injury have been a wake-up call about waning strength and aging and we definitely need to take more regular, structured exercise to keep us supple.
