I am really excited as I have a new scooter coming on Monday which I have bought half with my backdated DLA money and half which I have managed to save up.
It is called a Mobie and it folds up in 5 seconds and back to a scooter in 5 seconds. It can be taken on a bus, train, even on a plane (not that I ever go on a plane).
I can no longer manage to take my other one apart and put it in the boot of the car or even get it out of the front door on my own. Once a month I run a bereavement group in the village hall which is only a few hundred yards from where I work but I can no longer walk that far. This month luckily my son was starting work at the same time as me and he works next door but one to the village hall so he put the scooter in the car and got it out the other end and then I left it at work overnight and my son put it back in the car and my daughter got it out at home the next day. I can't rely on that happening every time and if I start telling my boss I can't do things I will probably lose my job.
One morning earlier this week I was trying to walk my dog, crying with pain at every step, got home to find my son leaning against the back door having a fag before I took him to work. I just broke down and said I just couldn't go on anymore, so when I got to work I googled folding mobility scooters and bought one.
Went from feeling almost suicidal to excited all in one day.
Just hope it's as good and easy to use as it sounds.
Also got a very good deal, would recomend the company to anyone
