I am thinking of buying myself a walking aid. D, who I see when I meet friends for coffee, has one and finds it a great help. It has a small shopping basket and a lid which makes the basket into a seat. It has four wheels, which make it very stable and it folds so that I can lift it on to the bus.
So watch this space. I am hoping to buy it tomorrow - our Pharmacist has a good selection and will help with adjusting it to the right height for me.
It has been exceptionally hot here today. Tess is not amused but I took her for a short walk this morning before friend E collected me to go in for coffee. When I got back from town I opened doors and windows so that the house was cool but Tess would only go out into the shade if I was out there. All my tubs were desperate for a drink and I had to water them immediately (I have done so again this evening). After tea I took Tess round the block again but it was far too hot and even she was ready to return home.
It is our Poetry group tomorrow so this afternoon I chose what I intend to read. Friend H came round to say she will take me as I can't drive at the moment. What it is to have such very good friends. I am so very lucky.
