Ending yesterday on green

Yesterday I messed up Ash's feeling of well being when I got home, saw he'd put things in the skip that I wanted to keep and then stupidly mentioned them.  Luckily I managed to get everything back on track so well that, by the time he had picked up Fish and Chips for tea, he was able to use the hated new mobile to let me know he was on his way home.  We both then spent the rest of the evening feeling very pleased with ourselves albeit for different reasons.

I pondered this earlier while I was having breakfast and realised that in the not too distant past we would have had yet another row about the whole thing which wasn't conducive to feelings of well being in either of us.  This stopped me in my tracks as the revelation came that dementia is not the worst thing that could have happened to us.  On the day we were given the diagnosis I thought the world had come to an end but the saying 'if I'd known then what I know now .......' is alive and well in this house.  I have no idea how this is all going to turn out but for us, for now, things are pretty good.
