First day on my own

Wednesday 18th November 2009

John had to go back to work today so I was on my own for the first time since coming out of hospital.

Our normal breakfast routine had to change as I wasn’t now able to do very much. Instead of me getting breakfast ready for John like I used to, it was now a joint effort.

Unless I drank them in the cold kitchen, drinks throughout the day weren’t possible as I couldn’t carry them. So we bought a large flask, a container to keep milk in and a small table, and put them next to the sofa. I now had a little picnic table….

Because I couldn’t use my hands to carry anything, my dad’s old rucksack was ideal to put things in, then strap it to my back. Perfect !!


  1. Blimey Marie, you make it sound almost like an adventure. Despite all that you had to put up with at that time, did you welcome a day on your own? bit of quiet time perhaps? xxx

  2. It was a bit daunting being left on my own, but it was nice to get things back to normal.
