Especially this afternoon. I had emailed an osteopath who applies teh Alexander Technique. I was raring to go and meet him this afternoon. My driver took me no the sea front which was bitterly cold, swept by a biting wind.
We looked for the flat and rang the bell, but nobody answered. The fellow from dwonstairs allowed us to go in out of the cold. He said he hadn't heard the osteopath all day long.Indeed when we banged on his door, no answer.
I was so frozen, my breath was cut out. My only desire was to be back home in the warmth.
Back home, I wrote an email. he also had written an email telling me that he had had a death in his family. This was so sad. But I felt that it had started badly and I cancelled all further appointments. I shall try to go to nother osteopath. Unfortunately he won't know teh Alexander Technique. For the time being, I am taking Paracetamol, Fenbid gel to put on my painful chest. I think it's all these new exercises blowing in my flute and the new positions that have developed this pain.
So I am rather tired.
On teh good side, this morning, the postman brought me a device to help me breathe better in my flute. It's called Pneumo Pro Wind Director. There's a sort of curved stalk on which are attached little fans at different intervals. You have to learn to blaow on each little fan by altering the shape of your lips. It's very good, because I thought I was breathing downward, but not at all. That got me going for a fair bit!
So not so bad after all! But I am shattered. EArly night tonight!
Hope you are not too suffering from this dreadful wind. They say tomorrow might be warmer before the cold comes back! Take care, Mic
