Brilliant Visit To The Market.


On The Market.
It has been a great day today, the appointment with Wilma from Wi-Care at 12 midday, went very well.

She brought one of their rain capes with her to check if it fitted me and it was a perfect fit.

Then she showed me some colour samples and I choose purple, it will be made quite soon and I should have it in three weeks time.     
Which will be brilliant as the rainy autumn weather seems to have started now and I do need to be well equipped.

 I do not intend to go out in a rain storm but if I am well protected then I can go out when it does not look so nice.

This afternoon the weather was not as sunny as in the morning but as it was dry Richie and I went off to the market.

Finally after two years and nearly two months there I was rolling around on my favourite neighbourhood market, the Ten Cate market.

It was great being there, had good fun rolling over the market, just before we got there we bumped into our dear friend Marianne, who was immensely surprised and pleased to see us.

She had popped round to see me at 14.15 before my physiotherapy session with Mathilde, to bring a present from her trip to Vietnam.

So Marianne had not expected to see me on the Kinkerstraat; it was a pleasure to see how delighted she was to see me there.

Not as delighted as I was to be there after so much time, it was a truly brilliant outing today with my darling Richie.

The first of many trips yet to come to the market and hopefully to other places before too long.

Hopefully one of many more very happy days yet to come.

Most excellent Herrad! I am so happy that you got to go to the market! Did you buy anything? Those pillows at the stall behind you in the photo are quite pretty.

Great to see the photos of your beautiful smiling face out and about!
I did a double take on the hanging legs behind you on the left. The market booths(?) look interesting. Are all the markets there like this along the street or street fronts?

Keep smiling totally awesome you go girl!

Herrad, you look BEAUTIFUL and very happy. Here's to many more enjoyable days out and about.

Be sure to take your Vitamin C and whatever else you have to boost your immune system now that you will be exposed to everyday germs. The LAST thing I want to hear is that you've gotten sick.
