Meet the new man in my life... I've called him Brian!!
I got a brand new wheelchair on Xmas Eve n was hoping that I'd be able to get myself around..the chair is great..my other one was a real bone rattler.. unfortunately due to weakness in my left hand that's getting progressively worse I can't propel the wheelchair myself!!
A friend of ours recently lost her mum n was selling her mum's scooter ..when we said we were interested she was delighted and sold it to us at a much reduced rate..people r so kind eh?
I've been riding Brian for a couple of weeks..just slow stuff..bumped into loads of things..wot makes it go forward..how do I go backwards etc..slowly but surely I've got the hang of it..of course I have I've been driving since I was 17..but no more driving for me now..looks like I'm a biker now!!
I decided to call him Brian after the snail on magic roundabout..the original one..showing my age there!!
I went out into the garden last night n tried the lights..yeah I know it's got a little headlight on it and tail lights as well..n I looked at the stars which I haven't done for far too long!!
My daughter's got some L plates so they'll go on soon n then I'm planning to go to a nearby plant shop n get gardening!! 🌻🌺🌼🌹🌱🌷
I did struggle with the whole disability thing n fought it for so long but I have been sat firmly on my backside by my illness n have now come to accept that this is my new life!!
Whats really wierd is the fact that when I was a child I wished n wished for a bike with a wicker basket on the front..I didn't see Brian until he was here in my living room n I fell in love instantly..I would never have thought back then that my basket on the front would on the front of a mobility scooter but hey the universe works in mysterious ways!!!
So now I'm gonna go boldly out there..me, hubby n Brian are gonna have some fun again..at last!!!
"Born to be wild'". One small step for Kat..one GIANT leap for mobility!!! 🛵♿
