Whoever wakes first phones the other at about 6 a.m. I don't have a phone in my single bedroom, only in the master bedroom so I have the cordless phone by my bed. Last night I forgot to put it there.
When I go to bed I lock up securely - the new closed-in porch is locked as are the front and laundry doors which go off the porch.
This morning Doug phoned me at 6 a.m. no reply (as I didn't have it with me and couldn't hear it from the other room). He phoned me again five minutes later and again a third time. By now he was wondering what had happened to me so put Sophie in the car and came around here.
Luckily, I gave him my house key about 3 years ago (how time flies) in case of an emergency and he managed to get in.
Meanwhile, I was fast asleep oblivious to all this. I woke up to hear a key in the laundry door and then the lights went on. Doug said that all the way here he was wondering what could have happened to me. It is so good to have someone who cares and worries.
I must not forget to put my phone on the bedside table and Doug must remember that he can also try my cellphone which was with me in my bedroom.
Still, the main thing as far as Doug was concerned is that I had not collapsed.
One photo from our Parkinson's walk on Monday - a lovely track.
