After waiting 25 minutes at a bus stop last night my legs were frozen. I have a horror of wheelchair cosy toes and blankets because I fear that they will make me look like an invalid. I did last winter in a nice calf length wool coat and ugg boots but last night I had a leather Parker and jeans on. I was so cold when I got in in that I just couldn’t go to bed even though it was 10.30. I decided to play on my iPad and warm up a bit first - 30 minutes later I realised that the central heating timer had switched it off and I was colder than ever.
I am almost at the point of buying one of those fleece lined things but I hate the idea. I try really hard to project an image of a “normal” person who just happens to be in a wheelchair. Any one got any better ideas?
