I thought you might enjoy our walk :-)
So picture sitting at a candle lit table for 2, the view is all beautiful beach. Sail boats gently traveling across the water, sunset of rich oranges and pinks. An unexpected surprise delight of a pod of dolphins only meters from where you sit, Que music lol romance dripping like a soppie movie sketch, great food, but even better company. A romantic walk along the fore shore is a must after such a perfectly delectible romantic dinner, no one could resist!
Walking hand in hand, two lovers each enjoying the romance and loath to head back to the real world, blissfully enjoying the fantacy. I take my little heels off because my energy is starting to slip after leaving the airconditioned reasturaunt, the wobbles have started and heels, even little ones are just too high to navigate. So we're again walking hand in hand, heels swinging, very happy and content, balance going, legs starting to go into puppet walking but the night is wonderfully perfect.
Que reality lol whoops my brain fried out on me, i'm freez frame stuck, standing there like a surfer balancing on the waves, arms flapping, knees bending because my brain is no longer able to work out where I am in space and gravity is calling, fast. I know whats happening, so does hubby but i'm looking at the walkway and it looks flat and firm to me so why am I surfing? hmmmm some bright spark in the planning department, had a small section of the walkway paved in a slopping to the middle V shape. In the semi dark, I couldn't see the slopping part at all, it totally looked flat to my eyes but within only 2-3 steps, my brain fizzled, shutting down my mobility system lol
So now I look like a really well dressed drunk, too off my face to get another step out, DH holding me up on my feet as we work out what to do to get me moving again. DH is grinning like a cheshire cat, thinking of whipping me up into his arms, like a romantic hero of yester year lol i'm thinking of my knickers flashing and so hoping he doesn't. After a bit of dragging a foot sideways and lots of wobbling as he's supporting my weight and i'm on the sand, so now we're giggling because i've totally become a puppet.
Left leg only managing half steps as it bounces up and down, its now so darn heavy, lol the right one is doing over exadurated high steps, pulling up from the thigh to get the foot high enough so i dont trip. All the while my joints are not holding solid so they're popping out like i'm held together with rubber bands, bugger my legs have gone again so thats the end of the romantic walk along the beach for us.
As i'm hauling my load into the car, he's busy enjoying my unintended display of legs and lace. I'm sorry, doesn't leave my lips as I catch the telling twinkle in his eye, it changes nothing for how he feels about me, it's just the way it is. Dont get me wrong, it could of easily screwed up the moment but it didn't because we laughed and delt with it, one wonky puppet step at a time. It was a wonderful night, and i'm paying for it but I simply wouldn't change any thing, my legs or lack thereof can only negativily change how I (we) navigate through, if I (we) let it get in our way!
