Last week me and Dizzy went to the New Forest! This was Dizzy’s first holiday away! I must admit at first I did feel like I couldn’t really be bothered to go. With my anxiety levels still pretty high and the MS deciding to be super grumpy a lot of the time, at the moment I didn’t feel like doing much more than hiding in bed over the half term holiday.
I’m really glad I did go though! I lived in the New Forest for over five years so it kind of feels like a home from home, which at the moment made it feel much more manageable.
So the first couple of days we went off looking for donkeys (ok, we did this every day but didn’t see any!) and ponies.
Then we spent the day by the sea feeding the ducks, swans and seagulls! As my legs were feeling pretty wobbly that day Dizzy thought sailing might be a better idea…
Then we saw Shetland ponies! I got abit worried that this one was going to try and eat Dizzy! … but he just wanted to say hello! 🙂
Dizzy then made friends with this little Shetland who very kindly give him a pony ride.
Last day was spent by the sea! (I told Dizzy they have a donkey sanctuary on the Isle of Wight so we might visit there next time 🙂 )
It was a really lovely week away and it’s definitely helped me a bit with my stress levels. After having 8 weeks of hardly any sleep, I actually had three normal nights sleep while away which was pretty amazing! Also has helped me to get walking a bit more too. Slowly, but getting there! 🙂
Think for the next one we’re off to Scotland! What’s everyone else got planned for their next holidays? xx
