Over the steps and along the path this morning, to the end of the bungalow – who’s a clever boy then? It was nice to get calls of encouragement from some of our neighbours on the way. I didn’t realise I had so many friends.
The biggest hurdle now is my lack of speed (in everything I do) but it’ll come. All I have to do to get there is practice – practice – practice – and when I arrive – PRACTICE again. It’ll come – I have set myself a target date to show real signs of development – it is to be achieved by October 7th 2017, The first anniversary of the stroke. I bet I get there!
OH YES I CAN.
The next phase is to start to learn the controls of my scooter so that I can relieve Pat of some of the jobs by going to the shops etc: Can’t wait for that. It’s surprising how exciting it is to look forward to simple things at my age. But set yourself targets, and strive to achieve them, the result is immensely satisfying when you get there.
Little babies learn to crawl (been there twice now) then they learn to walk (probably they will be faster than me, and I’ve done that twice too) then they move on to run.
WATCH THIS SPACE.
I’m off to practice more mind blowing achievements now, I’ll keep you advised…….
