Well today has been an almost normal day - thanks of course to the wonderful giving spirit of friends.
Yesterday I felt I was not well enough for our Friday jaunt - this morning I gave myself a bit of a talking-to and decided to stop feeling sorry for myself (I have friend G who is so ill with so many things and yet keeps going - puts me to shame).
So the farmer took me down as usual and pulled up close to our cafe. Afterwards (the farmer went around the market for me with the shopping basket) dear friend W brought me door-to-door. I insisted that the farmer stay for lunch in the Auction Mart Canteen. He didn't take a lot of persuading (Home made steak and kidney pie, chips and mushy peas, followed by apple pie and custard) and I felt happy that he had had a good square meal as I really do not feel like eating yet.
After lunch the farmer took me down to the Physio in town and she supplied me with crutches and taught me how to walk with them. Now I am hoping to go out to lunch on Sunday with the friends group and the farmer will go off walking with his group. Another step back to normality.
It has actually been a sunny, fairly warm day here and yet hardly any holidaymakers about. The trouble is that we are quite a long way North and don't get all that much really warm weather. (just one day would be really welcome).
I shall go and read a few blogs now. In the meantime - here's wishing all our athletes best wishes for the Olympics (and, frankly, for their health too).
