Living the rural dream

Today Tinkerbell attended her second hydrotherapy session both the ladies were very excited to see Tinkerbell and especially pleased at her walking within the tank.  What a little star, especially as she doesn’t like treadmills or water she’ll be disappointed to realise we are going again later this week. 

Tinkerbell’s Hydrotherapy is a little drive from the house along country lanes some narrow big enough to fit one car only at a time.  Thankfully the roads are fairly quiet making the drive a pleasure.  However when we arrived at the session and parked up we realised that we really need to put petrol in the car as the warning light was on and it looked like we wouldn’t make it home.

After Tinkerbell had done her cross country run we went to the local petrol station as we pulled off the road and drove our car to one of the pumps an older man walked out of the shop to fill up my car. 

This is the second time I have experienced such service at a petrol station.  The first was a number of years ago a small group of friends and I were attending a funeral of a fellow art student from university a very talented guy we knew as Vince not his real name but since highschool had been given the name due to his artistic talent a lovely guy who really had been taken too soon.  Before or after his funeral my friend had stopped her car to fill up with petrol in a rural area only two pumps I think and a young man had come out to fill up her car, we all thought that out was highly amusing. 

So today when the man filled up my car and when I asked him about the air pressure for my tyres he also filled them up as well.  I was very impressed with the service and realised that when someone fills up your car with petrol and tyres with air your living the rural dream, I thought I was on an episode of the Archers. 

Tinkerbell has spent the afternoon and evening relaxing after her excellent efforts today. 


We just can’t wait for her to get those legs working properly. 

Happy Monday Friends!
