Sat waiting for a friend to arrive and watching (as best I can) the people coming and going with their shopping.
And a very mundane task struck me. People were walking with shopping bags in both hands. Sounds rediculous, but in that small insignificant moment I became upset.
And the reason for it? The realisation that from now and forever I will always walk with one hand full; as I will either be holding a long cane, a guide dog harness or onto another person’s arm.
It sounds silly, but having to consider what you are buying when you go out, to either contain it in a back pack or worst case over my shoulder. It is very difficult with Fizz to have a bag in my right hand, she works off of tap que’s and a gentle reminder from having her lead in my right hand at times.
I guess for now I shall just add it to the list of ‘no longer possible’ and carry on by focussing on the ‘can do’ list.
