Walking is so over-rated...





"Eilidh, you're lucky you don't have to walk.
You get carried...
 or pushed...
 or you wheel about;
I have to walk everywhere..."




Out of the mouths of babes - Niamh - as we travelled to a local shopping centre for a wander and a bite to eat yesterday.  Incredulous and yet beautifully simple.  I didn't know what to say; I sat in silence, wishing that they could walk together, holding hands, like sisters should...  Not in this life time, however; not in this lifetime.
