A small milestone

For those who read my blog you will know that I have a rescue dog called Trudy. She appeared to be terrified of getting in a car. You might say so what? But this was difficult for me.

As I have what you would describe as a “gammy” leg, pavement walking and crossing busy roads tends to bring on a panic attack. Not a bad one, but I feel very worried and touch things for luck when I venture out. I have a cross and chain that belonged to my dad which came from Jerusalem. Dad travelled extensively in his younger days. I touch it every time I leave the flat. He also had a rabbit foot. I don’t have this now though. It seems abhorrent to me to have a rabbit’s foot for luck.

However this morning my daughter and I enticed the dog onto the back seat of the car, so I didn’t have to cross the road. Beautiful morning, lovely walk and amazing birdsong. I just wish I knew which bird was singing it’s heart out.

Tomorrow of course is another day with more challenges but I’m confident things can only get better.
