Foul day in bed mostly. Home help left early without doing much BUT here is the nice bit...walked dog the WHOLE promenade by the sea, about 20min! With the chihuahua. I actually strode purposely, it was very hard but so pleased I did it, then driving home I wondered where I'd get a plain bit of food and I spied a place very near where I live with two tables outside AND a parking bay opposite the door.
Had spagetti and garlic bread followed by apple crumble and a pot of tea.
It was chilly, but I have a temperature prob so no prob. I put the dog in the car cos I was nervous she'd get cold, she was jumping up and down like crazy (great exercise for her short little legs), I gave her a bit of bread and got my wheelchair cushion and that made my dinner more enjoyable.
Everyone going in laughed at her and thought her hilarious and I laughed "she mine!!!!" I had lovely comments and once I said, "dont laugh, she's a rotwieller at heart!"
It really was pleasant.
I came in and my dog bolted for my bed and I roared with laughter, I gave her a chew stick for being a fab friend and now she is just jaded and happy.
There's my 'something nice'
I havent been out for a meal in about 20yrs!!!!!! Yes, I never go out and it was really nice.
My crohns will prob play havoc with that food, but it was very tasty indeed, indeed!

Ann, that is a nice thing to tell us!!!  I"m so glad you had such a nice day with your pup!  She sounds like a real character.  I hope your "meal out" is sitting well so-to-speak!

Thanks for sharing a positive experience!

Oh, Ann, your story warmed my heart.  I have a little dog too.  She is part chihauha and part miniture pinscher.  Her name is Princess and she is such a character.

I am so glad that you felt well enough to go for a walk and eat out too.  We need to cherish those moments as much as possible.  Sometimes they are few and far between.  It just makes us appreciate the good things in life more.

Take care, Ann
