A sense of normality - no 5

One of the best results of my ongoing recovery from stomach surgery is the gradual return of a real sense of smell.

Three months ago, I suddenly became ill after going down hill for a few weeks before that. Four trips to hospital and a partial gastrectomy later and I can suddenly smell stuff. Through March, I couldn't eat or drink anything and certainly everything smelled bad.

Today was the first day I reached for the Chanel No 5. A tiny, insignificant step, but a step forward nonetheless.
