a former local taxi driver Allan Billis, didn't fancy having my body preserved for posterity.
Yesterday was quite a momentous occasion on my road to recovery. For the first time in four months my activity levels were nearly normal. Okay, I rose later than my usual 6am start and needed a rest after lunch but other than that, I was back to my normal busy self. After dressing Louis in the costume and bling I'd rustled up for his theme day, I walked him to school down the lane ignoring his protestation about not wanting to be seen in a skirt. I stuck around to hear the brilliant Steve Manning, a professional storyteller impersonate Howard Carter recounting his discovery of 'Toots' tomb before dashing off to Newton Abbot to meet a friend for coffee and a bit of shopping. Then home for a cup of tea and a lunchtime bagel followed by my lie down and a bit of a tidy up. After picking Louis up from school we whizzed around in the car doing errands and then back to school for the end of term disco where I set up and manned the snack stall for two and a half hours!
I wouldn't have thought anything of doing all this when I was fit and healthy but currently it's given me a real sense of achievement. Most of all, I'm enjoying being fully involved as a mum again. Now, it's a question of building up the momentum so I can sustain busy-ness on a daily basis in preparation for a long awaited return to work in just under four weeks time!
