No not the alcohol, although I love a touch of Bai...s C in my coffee first thing. Today, I took my wife out in her wheelchair. It is the fourth time we have used it for getting out and it is amazing how each time her spirits have been lifted - bright and responsive (in her own way, of course), happy and more active (within her limitations). And her raised spirits lasted for some hours after returning home, even to the extent she walked more positively and completed a greater number of steps, although still supported by me. As for me, whacked, aching back, but refreshed and happy that Pat has enjoyed each outing in her new buggy. I hope for many more days of reasonable weather so we can both get some fresh air, lifted spirits, and some exercise (of more usual type!) for me. I hope you, too, can have periods like this .
