Went to a good friend’s 30th birthday party last night and enjoyed myself. (Have rested up most of this week and have learnt to use my stick before the fatigue hits which has helped my recovery quite a lot.)
I actually wore heels last night (only 2" and quite chunky) and the party was slow to get started so was able to sit down most of the evening. Danced to a couple of songs (more standing still and wiggling my hips ) and seemed to get away with it. My legs are achy today but I think they will recover if I take it easy again. The friend I went with still doesn’t understand though :(. At one point one of those tunes came on where everyone does the same dance - the one where you all take so many steps in one direction then kick one leg and then you all take so many steps in the other direction for the full length of then tune etc. Hope that makes sense. Anyway she jumped up and said “Come on you can do this one”. I immediately said “No, my legs won’t be able to do that tonight” but she had already gone so I let her get on with it. She had already had several drinks so I think it was a while before she realised I wasn’t there, ha ha!!
Anyway I still enjoyed myself and I don’t think it was obvious that there was much wrong with my legs as there wasn’t much opportunity to dance anyway. Ann (the birthday girl) didn’t provide a buffet but there was a table full of sweets and chocolate, lots of crisps and snacks, birthday cake and doughnuts so I had to indulge in a bit of everything. Well it would’ve been rude not to, wouldn’t it?
