Today I did that and enjoyed a spot of lunch in my local japanese resturant by myself.
I know there's bit of a weird stigma about going to such places on your own and doing it today was a hurdle for me to get over and left me recharged and brimming with confidence.
truth is, I use to lunch alone a fair bit before my accident, but since I've been too scared too and quite simply didnt have the energy to push myself to.
In fact the chef came over and bought me a free miso soup (which tasted so amazing and really did cheer me up. I knew as i slurped on it, everything was going to be alright!)
The gyoza dumplings were so yummy and flavoursome that its hard put for me to write about them without drooling!
To be in the warm, to smell the food from the kitchen behind me and the sounds of chefs working their way around, to watch people in the cold, grey street as the rain slide down the windows.
To enjoy a hot chocolate and people watch at the same time...
It's nice to have a little time out for yourself once in a while isn't it?
