The one good thing about Mrs P’s extended stay in hospital is that is gave her chance to rest and recuperate after her operation, so much so that she was pretty nimble on her feet by the time she came home.
Or at least as nimble as anyone can be when they have to use crutches.
She slept well on Friday night and was able to cope with the shower without help, before settling down with the remote and catch-up tv for a Helicopter Heroes marathon.
I knew it couldn’t last and by the afternoon she decided that a constitutional stroll was in order and as it was such a beautiful day I drove her to the nearby Chadkirk Country Park. And of course I took my camera.
We started by crossing the new footbridge that opened in the summer. Above is a section of a panorama shot I took of it and you can see the whole thing if you click to enlarge the image.
Emboldened by the absence of discomfort, Mrs P lead the way through one of the footpaths through the woods that took us to St Chad’s Chapel and as it was quiet, I took a few photos inside.
All in all,it was a most pleasant stroll and I think Mrs P felt the benefit. Below is a gallery of the photos I took which you can click to enlarge.
