2014-33

It was a calm week. The weather was cool, windy and sometimes (very) wet too. It was nice to take it easy, doing a bit of bookkeeping and other computer work. Time to watch on television the athletics and other stuff. Quite relaxing. Also time to sort a computer problem in my Wife's local museum.

Yesterday it was 41 years since my father passed away. I often think of him. When I meet my cousins, which nowadays only is happening for cremations, the tell me I am my father's look alike. Only he only reached 64 years and I am 15 years older already.

Today my Wife wanted to sleep long, but our daughter's cat, who is staying with us during her vacation, thought otherwise. He was meowing for food. As he is afraid of me, my Wife got up to feed him and returned to bed without clothes. We cuddled. It was so good to feel her lovely body against mine. I was allowed to touch and caress her body everywhere. Finally She wanted to be served orally. She had a lovely orgasm. Then we cuddled more until She wanted to get up.

So our day started better than I had expected. I am a lucky hubby.

2014-32

The beginning of the week was rather calm. The weather was strange, lots of rain but also warm. So both my Wife and I took it easy.

On Thursday we received the messages that my sister's apartment was sold. We went to visit her and to celebrate with a dinner in her favourite Chinese restaurant.

Friday the money already was in her bank account. The house agent sent me photos of the energy and water meters. By telephone I could end the contracts for electricity and water. It went smoothly.

So we can close that chapter now. I hope it gives my sister some rest en diminish the tension. She now constantly is in pain and her doctor doesn't know what to prescribe any more. He now will try medicinal cannabis. I hope that will do something well for her.

This afternoon we are invited to a 'party' in a pancake restaurant on the occasion of my sister's elder brother's birthday. It will not be a real party as last year he had a stroke and now his left side is paralysed. He is admitted to the care centre in our village so it is a bit easier to visit him. His children and ex-wife wanted to celebrate nevertheless and take him out. It is difficult as all his life he was very self contained. He very seldom visited his brothers and sisters. Even on their birthdays he stayed away. Now his children want us to visit him. My Wife and I are the only members of the family who stayed in contact with him.

Anyway it is sad to see him in his wheelchair. He is a spitting image of my Wife's and his father who had a stroke too. In spite of his permanent handicap he doesn't want to sell his motorbike. He wants to ride it again, although his doctors have told him it is and will be totally impossible. In other respects he has a normal judgement, but this he can't accept. I suppose it is a way to survive, but it is sad. My Wife always is depressed after visiting him.

I had hope I would be allowed to serve my Wife this morning as the cold sore is over, but She wasn't in the mood. She knows She I am available, when She wants it. In the mean time I try to serve Her in other ways in the household.

2014-31

As we have to pay two visits tomorrow I'll probably will have no time for this blog. So I make it a day earlier than usually.

This week I had a strange experience. As always I did the shopping for the household. My Wife had asked me to buy a special brand of shower gel. I didn't forget it. But when it was time to go to bed, She said I forgot to buy her ointment for the cold sore. She was very certain She had told me to buy it, when I left the house. And according to Her I had promised to do so. But I couldn't remember it. I was sure She only mentioned the shower gel. But She said She explicitly had asked me for the ointment. I was sorry I had failed Her and next morning I went out to buy the stuff.

It reminds me of what happened on 30th of April last year, when I had that black out, later by our GP diagnosed as TGA. Then I didn't remember what had happened too, although I had been communicative. And I didn't miss the time gap then.

I hope it will not happen more often. I myself don't notice it. Strange feeling. It make me unsure. I now never.

My Wife and I both made it a calm week. It was too hot and too sultry to do much. The sale of my sister's apartment seems to take place next week, but we only can be sure when everything is settled with the notary.

I hope everyone who is reading this will have a nice weekend. My Wife's cold sore isn't over yet, so I don't expect any sexual activity tomorrow.

2014-30

Again I didn't do very much this week except on Monday.

That day I visited my sister to install a new answering machine, to clean up her laptop and to write a simple manual for her television. We hoped she would receive the authorisation form from the notary who would do the transfer of her apartment to the buyer. When it wasn't in the post I called this notary (in the East of our country). He told me he had informed the estate agent that there was a delay as to transfer the part of the parking garage he needed wait for permission of the municipality. So the transfer that was planned for last Friday was postponed. My sister was disappointed and I was tired too.

The other day I got a call from the estate agent who told me that the notary very late had asked for the needed permission. Fortunately the buyer didn't mind, he told me. I hope he is right.

Anyway for the rest of the week I only did my usual chores, solved a computer problem in the museum and for the rest I took it easy. I watched a lot of television. There were constantly broadcasting about the air plane crash and the massive morning. It was impressive who the people was united, but in the end it was irritating to me. There hardly was attention for the crash in Mali with also many victims, or all the victims in Gaza. 

To distract my mind I also watched a lot of the Tour de France for the 2nd time in my life. The first time was when I had to rest after an operation on my foot many years ago. In other years I always was busy with something, work or voluntary work.

I didn't do much else because the weather was too hot and sweaty for me.

We slept well fortunately and this morning we even cuddled for some time, but that was all today. It was nice though.

Next week the weather seems to be better for us. They expect nice summer weather with temperatures of 22 degrees.

What a week this was. So much violence causing so much grief. The Malaysian air plane crash, Gaza, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and all violence that we are used to and isn't mentioned anymore in the journals.

I detest the attitude of the separatists in Ukraine who make it impossible to recover the bodies of the victims and the personal belongings. They also prevent good research about the the cause of the crash. For the relatives of the victims it is an extra torture.

I keep thinking of all this sorrow.

Of course I try to distract my mind by doing other things like watching the Tour de France. But is doesn't help much.

Also we have a heat wave (to Dutch standards of course). So I follow the advice of the wise people who tell us that old people have to take it easy and drink a lot of water.

I hope next week I can make a more optimistic post.

2014-28

It was a nice week. I wanted to take it easy, but Monday afternoon my Wife told me She wanted to paper the wall in our attic where we have our office. I had to clear all shelves, take off the rails etc. It also meant to disconnect our computers, printers, , radio, CD-players, lamps etc. But it was an opportunity to clear a lot of unused stuff too. It took me all Tuesday to get my stuff away. I was very tired and hardly could keep my eyes open during the football match.

Next day I helped Her by taking care of the electricity etc. Before lunch She the papering was ready and after lunch I could built up everything again. I must admit it is much better now. More room too, because we have done away with a lot of stuff. Nevertheless I was very tired when I was ready. And then Holland lost against Argentina.

During the rest of the week it was quieter, just my shopping and yesterday She wanted me to cook, although She was at home as the museum is closed now. I made salty tart which She liked very much. "You are a fine tart baker", She said (in Dutch of course and I don;t know if it is a correct translation). It was a nice Saturday and moreover Holland beat Brasil.

And this morning She again surprised me. She woke my up completely naked. We cuddled for a long time and made love in our old age way, but it was so nice and full of love. Writing this I get the same feeling of happiness. I am such a lucky guy. I hope my readers have or had such a nice wake up too.

2014-27

Again we had a rather uneventful week. Almost all activities of our organisation for elderly people, ANBO, are on halt now. So I had time to clean and update my computer a bit. I still have files from the time I was a member of the board of ANBO more than 9 years ago. Looking at those files costs a lot of time, when you start reading them. The same with photos. So in the end the result was poor. :)

I also spent a lot of time in front of the television to watch the World Championships football. I should be happy for the Dutch team as they reached the semifinals, but I don't like the way they got that result. Not only they didn't play good football, but they won several matches with help of the referee. Nevertheless most Dutch people don't care as long as they win. But I don't like it.

Unfortunately I can't write about sexual activity. My Wife isn't interested, but I keep hoping. Maybe next Sunday.
