Today the admirer of my tankini top was back. Like so many people here she like to give advice. This time it was instructions on how better to hold the baton (pole) in an exercise to help me raise my arm.
She was quite right! She then remarked that I was walking straighter. Yes, I replied, less pain than last week. This opened the floodgates to advice as to what remedies – mainly homeopathic – to take. And before I left she handed me with a list and urged me to telephone if I had any problems.
When not dispensing health advice she spends her time running brocant (secondhand or junk stalls) in aid of L’Association Perle, a very worthy local animal refuge. Don’t go on their site – all those photos of dogs needing homes is heartbreaking.
