Way back in 2016 following my near-fatal accident,
I noted and celebrated each small step towards recovery.
Earlier this month I wrote about going for a walk and now
I should like to share this with you.
As Zig Ziglar, a favourite motivational speaker said –
“You can eat an elephant a bite at a time.”

“Sometimes I need
only to stand wherever I am
to be blessed.”
― Mary Oliver, Evidence: Poems
I went into town today to meet a friend for coffee. Unfortunately for me but fortunately for her, she had promised to take her grandson to the movies, so it was a very short meeting. After she left, I had another coffee and thought about what I would do until my driver picked me up one hour later.
So here I was out on my own for the first time in 12 weeks. It seemed like some retail therapy was called for. I made it to only one department store almost opposite where we had coffee, but I felt pleased with myself for trying this.
I bought some tights, some makeup and a new perfume. So al in all a good use of an unexpected free hour. And to finish off, while I waited for the driver, I bought some handmade chocolates from the chocolate shop.
Then home again with my caring and careful driver. I’m so lucky that I have access to these women in Driving Miss Daisy. They are all in their 50s and 60s and really look after me.
A quick lunch and then onto the bed for a nanny nap.
Another milestone reached and overcome.
That was fun reading. You redeemed the day!
Nothing like retail therapy for lifting one’s spirits.
