Electric Wheelchair

Electric Wheelchair

Northeast Mobility Solutions Ltd are coming to my house next Thursday to let me view one of their Electric Wheelchairs. Spoke to a very nice gentleman on the phone today - no pressure to buy which is what I like.

Electric wheelchair will give more independence and save money on taxis going to doctors. Plus I`ll be able to visit my local shops more often and not have to depend on others. I`m getting excited just thinking about it and my fingers are going crazy hitting the wrongs keys - taking me ages to type this :-)

I woke up this morning all aches and pains.....but now I feel as happy as a young matelot going home on leave after a long voyage.

Hope you all have had a nice day - and did not suffer too much.

Hi John-H!

Exciting news, it'll be like zipping around in a sports car!

Nice pic, I don't fancy trying to climb into the hammock,

does it make you yen for the high seas? xB


As for the electric wheelchair............................well the doctor has put the brakes on that (excuse the pun).

He is worried about the blackouts I have and + electric wheelchair + outside on my own, well it don`t mix. So until they can control it, it the electric wheelchair has been put on hold :-(
