I was having a bad day today, jittery joints and a bent up back. I had arranged to meet friends in town for coffee..determined to go I figured I could drive my automatic and I could walk with my stroller, so I did.
Because of the discomfort in my back I sat on my stroller rather than a chair in the coffee shop. We were at the point where one friend had gone to the loo and the other was queing for more coffee, when a woman came up to me and said
'left you all on your own'
I was a little surprised but replied quite civily
'well no not really one friend is in the loo and the other is getting the coffees in'
'good that you can get out' she said patting the handle of my stroller'
With a supreme effort I managed not to bow my head so she could pat that too, smiled sweetly and said
'yes it's a real life saver'
