Wherein I ramble.......
Right. I was just getting to the dream section of Waitrose, aka the electronics section where they have kindles and laptops and all the other things on the dream list, when I realised that the leg was not co-operating. So there I was, standing near to the restaurant, like a stork, when my phone rang. Peter and Glynis calling to see if I wanted to go to Wairose with them in the afternoon. Funny they should mention Waitrose.... So, I ventured over to the queue for coffee with BOTH hands on the one stick. And as I stood there, I realised that carrying a cup of coffee or a tray was Out Of the Question. So I tottered back to the car via the veg section, pausing for long minutes to practice the breathing and the riding of the waves of pain like a surfer, and finally got back to the car. Having bought nothing.
So, I got home, had a rest and some lunch AND coffee, and then called Peter and Glynis again to see when they were going to Waitrose. And invited myself along.
I know. Sounds like I had lost the mind, but at least I didn't have to carry the tray, did I, and I thoroughly enjoyed the company and the conversation. Then I pottered round the dream section again, bought nothing, and we came home. And I made a stir fry for supper without setting anything alight.See? I am not loopy yet.
And then I went to Aqua and nearly perished. It was very difficult for me because the body now feels pain in the water, as opposed to not feeling pain like Before the Flare. But I soldiered on, because I have to, and here I am. A little weary.
The sun is indeed shining, and the kitchen is bathed in the late afternoon golden light. I love it. And you are now up to date with my totally exciting life. But then, it suits me just fine right now......
