Feeling Happier

Although the promised sun didn't shine I still had a good day.

Stepson came north and we took his Dad down to the Town Basin for fish and chips.  He knew us when we arrived and, in spite of the fact that he had mislaid his walking stick, he was walking well.

I wasn't very happy before as, on Tuesday, he told me he was starving himself to death, but today he ate well.  The portions are so large that we got two serves for the three of us but M. definitely ate his share.

We then went for a reasonable walk to see the yachts then  back to the Rest Home on a different route.  He made no complaint at being returned there.

Stepson was wonderful with him and I don't think I could have managed getting M. in and out of the car on my own.  He is going to come back up in two or three weeks to do it again.

In the morning before he arrived I did some clearing in the garden and filling the wheelie bin ready for Monday so it has been a productive day.

I hope yours has been as well.


  1. Glad you have the support of your stepson Sue. Gardening is so therapeutic.

  2. It does make a difference. Feeling so much better now.

  3. I'm so glad you had a nice trip out. I recently visited the town basin with a friend to have coffee. We took a walk up past the Art gallery...I hadn't realised they'd done all that. It's so pretty!

    I love my garden too and the spent the afternoon (yesterday) weeding and fertilising it :0)

  4. Julia, it is a lovely walk to the concrete waka. I was back in the garden this morning before going to the gym.

    Have decided that I need plenty of rest and exercise.

  5. It is a lovely walk to the stone waka isn't it. Tomorrow I am going on a walk with a group over the bridge and then the boardwalk. Haven't been there before. Should be good.
