Looking after ourselves

Re: Carers Hints and tips to Success

@Darcy, We needed to take Older Daughter to a medical appointment yesterday. While she was at the appointment, we found a nice parkland spot to sit quietly and read while we waited. While there, a friend walked past and stopped to ask how we were.
Realised when talking to her that one of the things we think of in such situations is "what can we do to look after ourselves while we do xyz?". Little time outs and little treats. Smiley Happy They help.

When Mr Darcy was having weekly appts in the big smoke we would treat ourselves out to lunch, trying out different cafes @Smc. I saw it as small compensation for what was an emotionally difficult time.
