Yay! Really pleased with myself this morning because I walked to the centre of the village (about 1½ miles away) and back. Of course there were plenty of rest-stops both ways, but I made it! Twice as far as I've walked since the stroke ( I got the bus there once before and walked home). Bloody hard work though - I really need to concentrate on riding either my scooter or my bike, to do everything more quickly - I timed one way and it was about ¾hr.
There is a small cafe in the centre of the village, and this was the venue for a meeting with a few Age UK people. They are running a course soon about how we can get old folks online and making use of the net, and I have offered to help.
When I got home, I even had a call from the new Stroke Association contact, suggesting that we meet next week.
I love it when progress happens.
