after dithering for months finally bought a travel scoot, a lightweight mobility scooter that folds up like a babies buggy and fits in the boot of my car. It folds really easily and weighs approx 32 lbs.
it sat in my hall for a week, I could not quite get my head around the fact I needed to use this at 50 years of age to do normal family outings.
today we took the children to the zoo, out first proper family outing in a year. When we took it out of the car I felt so self conscious I wanted to go back home. I couldn’t disappoint the children who were so excited that I was actually out with them ( normally my husband does the park etc with them) so on I got and off I went.
it was fantastic, we were 6 hours in the zoo, the kids had a great time, I didn’t get too many people looking at me. Better still when we got home I wasn’t dropping with fatigue.
Roll on on next weekend.
