Yesterday was a bad day for us both.
The weather was beautiful and in hind sight I can see that we should have gone out somewhere but neither of us could summon up the strength needed.
We discovered the problem once we sat down to do the jigsaws and opened up about why we were so lethargic.
A couple of days previous we had moved a bush in the garden. What used to be an easy task now simply isn't.
I dug the thing up and made the new hole, put the bush in and asked Tom to tread around the base of the bush to make it firm.
It quite pooped him out and he had to sit on the bench to get his breath back and I was genuinely worried for him.
I think it came as a shock to both of us that we couldn't do such a simple task and made Tom realize that he just cannot do the things he used to.
It's so hard to let go.
Anyway, we got the whole incident into the open and discussed how we are going to have to adjust up to what we can and cannot do and we both feel better for it.
