    The latest on trying too change how we get more individual time for each of us!
    Well! It's been an interesting day opened curtains this morning too a sunny day decided to have a go at going round the block, walking from my wheelchair.
    Was so nice out decided will go too the market, got to the (ten foot) we normally avoid them! Got just past the footpath leading to the next street when a man seemed to appear from nowhere, he realise I was frightened and said, it's ok lady I no hurt you, want too help! Bless him, he pushed me in wheelchair down ten foot! Not much English east European then needed to cross road and a youth asked if I needed help, and pushed me across. Got over another crossing and then could freewheel into town and went round food hall.
    Did realise that I would not be able to get home under my own steam! Then Joy text me and came to get me, we enjoyed a look round and a couple of stops for lattes sat in the sun, was surprisingly warm. Lesson learned, I may not be so lucky another time as to who I bump into!! So we agreed that some days Joy would see me into town and then collect me when I had had enough, giving both of us some space
    I do realise that I was very lucky that nice people helped me, but could have been so different!!!

    A ten foot round here is the access to garages behind the houses, wide enough for cars to pass, but often very quiet!

    Summing up. It was not a wasted effort on my part or Joys!
    We have talked more!

    You call it a ten foot. Not sure if we had a name for that kind of area, but when children we were always told not to take the short cut through a similar area.

    Jeanie, so glad everything worked out, particularly that you and Joy talked more as a direct result. And yes, cheers to the fact that there are still good people around who will help out en route, out of nowhere.

    We're all muddling along/through. Dementia isn't the only cause for miscommunication. But it needs to be noted that, here, it was a catalyst for better communication, seems that's down to you and Joy.

    Love reading your posts. X
