No I do not have TV. I have my lap top, and that keeps me amused.
Unless you have had an accident, and suddenly been removed from your home, you are unlikely to have a clue what it is like.
I came in with a mobile phone and the USB cable, and that is all. I rarely use the phone, and it is not up to date with contacts.
A local woman, who I had thought of as a friend, phoned me in the ambulance to tell me she would go at once to the house to rescue my dog, and she would feed my cats. I was so grateful.
My house is actually let as a gite throughout the summer and the first guest was due in a week's time. I had been in the process of clearing out my things to my apartment, when I had the accident.
My friend cleared everything from the house, apparently in a series of bin liners. I arranged someone to do my changeovers for the guests for me and told her of this, when she became very cross. She had decided that it would be a good job for her boyfriend to do. I said that I preferred my own arrangements. At that she became very cross, and told me she no longer intended to look after my animals. Happily, I managed to get kennels to take them.
She then sent me an invoice for 25 euros per day for looking after them for the week.
A friend has been to the apartment and cannot find my clothes, or much else for that matter. So here I am in hospital with no clothes, and of course no cash. My bag was found, but she had taken my money from my purse for her expenses. So I have no cash either.
I have been very lucky, two ladies from my French group have been to visit me, one bought me a pair of pyjamas so I have something decent to wear other than a hospital gown when I go to the Physio department. Another took the clothes that I arrived in and washed them for me. They have brought food also, and toiletries. One has lent me 40 euros, so I can pay to use the hospital Internet, another lady from the village found my laptop and brought it in for me. These people are my friends.
I don't know many other people, I haven't lived here that long.
I have sent for some things from Amazon, but sometimes the deliveries can take a couple of weeks.
The dietician has been and I got some fresh lettuce this evening to go with my boiled pasta, so things are improving.
Thank you all for your useful suggestions. I have been grateful for your time, and interest. I still have a few weeks to go in here, but I feel less despondent than when I wrote the initial post. I even have a wheel chair now, which gives me some independence, so things are looking up!
