Here I go again – staying upright this time

We forgot to pick up my tablets this week, don’t know how, so I decided to save Pat the trouble, at the same time giving myself another challenge,  off I went on my scooter again – to the pharmacy – where I disobeyed all rules and promises and dismounted and went in on my own to pick them up, remounted alone and went off back up the hill.

Pat tutted at me for that, but it felt really good, it’s just one more step forward on the long road.

Over the last few weeks my sons in law have been so good about the little jobs I used to be able to do,  I’m so lucky to have people like that as a part of my family.

So – now I can do more than before I guess I can claim PROGRESS. I find myself doing new little things, without planning how to, and achieving things successfully after planning to, it feels good.

I know and accept it will take a long time to get better, but get better I will, watch this space.

Just to keep you all up to date – some good news, some not so good ……. the not so good is my back is still killing me since the fall a few weeks ago (I think I may ask the doc to take a look soon. After all it is nearly three months of unremitting pain now) The good news is I am still losing weight at a steady rate, and feeling so much better for it.

Sitting here watching that big orange thing appear from time to time in the sky, and watching it snow dead leaves all over the garden, I can recall happier and interesting times gone by. Got a lot to be thankful for really.

All told I’ve decided Iv’e got a lot to be happy and contented about haven’t I.
