Date Day: Coffee & Crutches

The Hubby and I managed to squirrel away some 'us' time after dropping the children in to school this week.  Although his achilles is improving he is still on crutches and so we look like a right pair together and it means that we needed to choose something simple for our Date Day.

Coffee with a view was the obvious choice.  At the sea front the tide was out and the little fishing boats looked like they had been lulled to sleep on their sides in the autumn sunshine.

The sand sparkled as the sun hit the surface and whilst we sat sipping our coffee in the unusually warm sun, I did feel extremely content with our simple life.  I needed that moment - to refocus ourselves on what is important; to try not to worry about what we can't change and be fully present and appreciative of this goodness.

It's been a strange time at present with my health and continuing searches for additional diagnosis.  I have decided to just go with it and not worry.  I have had these symptoms for a good while and a label will not change the reality so I'm trying to be more relaxed about the process.  

Coffee and a chat can help reestablish perspective - and great company and a good view doesn't hurt either!!  Thank you all for your kind comments and wishes for my health.  I'm alive and happy just struggling a little with pain at present but this is nothing new.  All will be well.

I do so hope all will be well with you all too,

  1. Thank you for your kind wish too. Your words are very wise, I often think that labelling things doesn't actually change them, although of course you might then find a treatment, But trying not to worry is always a good idea, it's something I do a lot of! Your positive attitude is a very good thing. Wishing you a good weekend. CJ xx

  2. You are right, unless a label is somehow going to make things better - by enabling some treatment or other - then it is just a label isn't it. A name isn't a cure or treatment. I hope that your hubby is better again soon. You have a great outlook on things, I really do hope that life improves soon. xx
