So I had this woman round from the council today to see how they could help me with my disability. Next thing you know she was wittering on about a walk-in bathroom, a stairlift and an outside lift to get me from pavement to front door level.(about 7 feet). And, as i have got a two-level hallway, that could be levelled off.Of course the front door frame and door would have to be raised to allow for this.
So I said, in my educated Bedford accent, "Kinell, that sounds expensive". No problem she says, you are allowed up to £30,000.
All I had asked for originally was an extra handrail up the stairs. And you thought there was a recession on.
