I agree with Kades. In the times I do feel up to going into the kitchen these days I appreciate it much more than the times when I push myself through the pain. I am sure your DW is happy to cook for you and see you get stronger.

Mum had a very late specialist appointment (by doctors standards that is!) in the city so I took her to that last night and we didn't leave there until 7:15pm, so decided that we would call in to a restaurant/cafe for dinner. After a comedy of errors that wasn't really very comedic at all (!), we ended up at my closest Chinese which I don't usually go to. Last night, the guy had his two young daughters serving as well as a trainee. The trainee had no idea on how to serve a table - he arrived at our table during the entrees (with the food at our mouths) and just stood there holding the food over our heads waiting for me to clear the table for him!! This was after mum had choked over her spring roll for a good five minutes too I might add! Then he takes off without even clearing the table, leaving one of the daughters to do it for him. We had sesame chicken, king prawn chow mein and a small fried rice with Chinese tea. Not really a hard order, even if rather Westernised. The chow mein was really tasty - until I hit the bottom and then found a taste that wasn't overly pleasant and remains unidentified but at least not the prawns. The sesame chicken however was dry and relied on the flavour and moisture coming from sickly sweet S&S sauce that accompanied it. Mum suggested I take it home to give to the cats but the chicken was so thin, I wasn't sure that they would recognise it as food!!

(This was not first choice. We were going to a motel restaurant that was on the way home that I had a discount voucher to and had quite tasty food in a neat environment, even if service had been slow. Got there and the place reeked of beer and yobs. It was awful. Written off now despite the voucher.)
