Today I had to go to my loca job centre which is a 25 minute bus ride away. I phoned yesterday to say it would depend how I was feeling as to whether I attend because I have been very ill and still recovering and they said that was fine. Anyway, I decided as I was feeling OK that I would go to get it over and done with.
I use a stick outside as my left leg is still a little weak and I walk with my feet quite wide apart for better balance. So I was waiting at the bus stop and when the bus arrived people were letting me go on first. I waved them on as I wasn't comfortable with being treated 'special'. When I got off the bus drivers were letting me across the road. People in shops were opening doors for me and when I went to get a coffee and a sit-down someone carried my coffee for me :) Again, when getting bus home people offered me on first and the bus driver even asked me if I was ok as I got off. I was quite amazed actually at how kind and helpful the general public in Biggleswade were. I don't usually go there as it is hard to get to. There are very few buses running to and from.
Just wanted to share that. :)
