As the weather was quite bright today we thought we’d take a trip up into town for lunch at a local cafe. Even though I know full well that such an excursion is good for both body and soul, I find it difficult to heave my aching bulk off the sofa and onto the scooter. It must be the actual crossing of the great threshold which is the psychological barrier because once I’m out it’s fine. Anyway I was so pleased with myself when I got back out of the chilled blustery air and sat back down. As a result I’ve realised a couple of things which may be worth pointing out as factors which help me as a disabled person. Firstly, the people I encounter are always friendly and helpful. (Hardly any exceptions but they’re not worth the blogging space anyway.) Secondly. the cafe we went to is helped enormously by the fact that it has a disabled toilet.
Two seemingly simple but highly important factors which make it worth going out. The weather forecast is also a very big help!
Best wishes, Steve.
