I have just spent the last two weeks in Cyprus at my twin brothers place . Had a fab time wining
and dining ,been to some lovely place's and really enjoyed my rest the Villager's and place are lovely and it has made me more aware That life is still good Okay I now need to wear Berty Boot and use the rollator to get out and walk with But I can still get out and have a good time .
I went down to the beach while there and wore a swim suit (haven't worn one in years) went into the water and actually learn' t to swim. I have been scared of water since my school days
so it was a plus for me . Now I have joined the local swimming group to improve my swimming before I go back When I arrived home I went on the scales to find I had lost 4 lbs so I am delighted with that .
Today I have had a male friend call in for coffee and I can understand the way he is feeling He lost his wife 7 years ago and has done nothing but cry all week he is missing her that much . We sat and talked about him and his Silv and as I listened to him I became more aware of how lucky I am to have been married to such a wonderful unselfish man for 38 years as Harry told me just before he passed I had to get out there and make new friends
which I have tried to do. I don't have to feel guilty re meet anyone as "H" didn't want me to be on my own like Silv did with Mike . I have tried to tell Mike its time to let go and start to face life with out her but I don't think he will some how . I still have the odd days were I miss my "H" so much but I now call them my H days.
I am back on the food plan again exercising by walking and now swimming determined to help myself and get fitter stronger and just maybe I will meet the right friend once more
