I did it! We went out together on Tuesday!
It’s funny really. Only a couple of years ago, I was laughing on this blog at the thought that visiting a garden centre was the highlight of my week. At that time, Lovely Husband and I would drive out on an afternoon, several days per week, to walk around one of our many local garden centres, have a cup of tea and a snack, and then drive home again. It was the only exercise that I could manage and LH was trying his best, as a former PE Teacher, to help me not lose any fitness that I had. Now, managing to get to one garden centre in several months feels like an achievement!
Going out is still very difficult for me. Trying to pick a day when I feel fit enough is hard enough, but actually leaving the house causes issues. I find the outside world both frightening and confusing. Although my sight is a lot better, the hustle and bustle of people, traffic, the wind in the trees, the colours and shapes, flashing lights etc., are overwhelming. I must force myself out of the “safe” bedroom and outside the house, but it is hard.
I wore the outfit on the left on Tuesday: Lands’ End navy cotton jumper and cord trousers, navy shoes, cobalt blue earrings and my new Hermès scarf Plumes en Fête. Today, I am dressed in the outfit on the right which is an old John Lewis turquoise cashmere v-neck (the colour never photographs accurately) with an even older Indian silk scarf. The two knots shown are the asymmetric wrap (on the left) and the cowboy cowl (on the right). I had better make a proper collage with the Plumes en Fête outfit so that I can add it to the Scarf of the Moment post that I uploaded a few days ago.
I have yet another hospital appointment on Monday with more tests on my heart, so I will try to post when I get home.
I do hope that you all have a great weekend.
Love and best wishes,
