A good day
The hospital I have to attend is 17 miles away and the bus from Aylesbury runs only every two hours.
As I have to get into Aylesbury in the first place, this makes a 10.15 appointment virtually impossible.
Luckily for me, my kind friend the parish administrator took the day off to take me.
The consultant was very pleased with my progress thus far, though he did point out that eventual deterioration is inevitable, and saw no reason at present to change the prescribed medication.
Coming out of there into heavy rain (just a shower) I was more than ever grateful for my kind friend's
We decided that rather than go straight back we would stop on the way at a large garden centre and have coffee (and cake), and when the rain stopped have a look around.
We had a lovely chat, a good walk round and I bought some tulips for planting. The first thing I have bought for the garden since John died.
Since the gardener had been by the time I got back, I now have some weed free space to do some planting. All I need now is the time, energy and right weather and God willing, I'll have something new and beautiful to look at in Spring.
This may seem a very ordinary mundane sort of morning to most of you but for me, it was a rare trip out of Aylesbury in good company and really a sort of mini holiday.
OH,and just for the record, this was my 500th post. :-)
