BSL Glossary - Crowded Cottage
Walked disconsolately - example
The cow was walking along disconsolately, looking around and giving the odd miserable moo here and there. The reason was that she was fed up waiting for some food. Then she perked up, started to swish her tail and walked contentedly over towards the farmer. He arrived on his tractor, got out and poured the food into a trough. The cow was so happy now that she had got her food.
