Calmed Down Now.
Well the anticipated depression did not arrive - thank goodness and I have calmed down. I think I use this blog as a bit of a pressure valve which then worries other people. So just bear this in mind for future panics.
We have been keeping busy. We went to a RREC lunch at Black Bull Fyfield which I think I may have already mentioned. You will know that we took the Cloud. I was not happy with the brakes and I was proved right as they have now been relined and they were in a bad state when they came off which was really surprising as they were done just 5 years ago and the car does not get used that much and when Ron drove he would not have been "driving on the brakes" as he tells me I do!
We went to Capel Manor in it last Sunday (Enfield) and I was much happier (not sure happy can describe my emotion). The weather stayed fine and we had a good day. Ron was able to get around on his scooter and he is never happier that when he is chatting to people who admire the cars. Each time we do one of these excursions it becomes easier for me and Ron is able to do more. This time he walked in to the disabled loo rather than take the scooter in.
We started at Saffron Walden gym on 21st, there was no gym on 28th but we went again Friday 4th and Ron thinks he gets more benefit from his session there than the Herts and Essex session but this could just be that it is new to us. There is no H & E gym 25th,1st,8th,15th but it starts again on 22nd so lucky we have SW. Ali has been on holiday for two weeks but is back now and due here at 3.00 tomorrow. We did not see or hear from Liz last week but the week before that she came and Ron walked down the lane outside our house - I am not good at distances but probably about 35 yards so this was very encouraging for him. He does do a lot himself during the day and last week he was able to turn his wrist back and forth but so far has not been able to repeat it but he will. This was very exciting for both of us because it means there is hope for regaining movement in his hand.
We have had two very nice barbecues lately . On 23rd (sunny day) we went to Graham and Erica's and on 29th we went to Lynda's for a family barbecue to celebrate the planning of Anita and Matt's wedding. I just love family get togethers. Hopefully we are going to get n Indian Summer so there may be more barbecues.
Sunday we have a lunch meet with RREC so another outing to get used to the Cloud before we go off to Bournemouth in it at the end of the month.
