Excepted at TESCO supermarket

We went out in the blowing rain. We had a nice little meeting with the local authority about Jason's school. Dave, I and another parent were all that showed up. Just as well we went! We walked the whole way home without me needing to sit.

And...da Da DA...

Dave, Jason, Icy and I walked through TESCO supermarket without one bad look or problem. That's with trollies (carts) and Christmas lighting and stuff. He even walked past bones and dog treats without a look.

I was really proud of both of us. I didn't have any of the vertigo I was having with riots of colour like supermarkets of tv advertisements, and he was totally on the ball. Sat when we had to wait. Moved out of the isle with me when someone needed past. Then sat. He did look around to orient himself but I could see it was just that. No undue interest. He was on the job. I wouldn't hesitate to take him in again. I have been waiting till we were a better partnership before being ballsy enough to walk into a supermarket like I owned it. I might try and shop for something small next time. Something I can fit in my back pack for the way home.

We had a nice walk home but the wind played havoc with my balance.

I'm glad you got to go shopping! I'm sure it was a great adventure!

Thanks Demon! Dad just went and got some sweets for the boy and they paid but it was a good first trip. There were lots of trollies (carts) and people. Mum was happy I was there to part traffic. Those floors are cold too!!! I'm glad I have all that fur on my bum!

Next time we'll do more of a walk around so I can get all the smells and Mum can gage my responses.

Thanks for reading. :)
