Hiya mateys! Well the boss wheelchair man came yesterday to do the official handover for my new wheelie.
It was snowing when he arrived. he went through the workings of the wheelie, got me into it and watched me go round the house. Yes, I did hit one or two door edges..............I want it all open plan anyway..........must slow down, he said!
Then as he was finalising his paperwork, i said i was planning a shopping trip. he looked at me and shook his head. `No, you can`t go out in the snow!` `But I only go out once a week..............I need retail therapy`, I cried.
He said, `Well it`s up to you, but we can`t tell you it`s advisable to go out in snow`. Then he added that it was due to stop around lunchtime.
So I donned my new rain poncho.....very fetching! Underneath I had a thermal vest, a cotton top, a thick cardigan and a knitted poncho, a scarf, a hat, gloves, trousers, sox and boots. i did a great impression of Heidi! We set off to Huddersfield. We parked next door to Dunelm and stayed inside for 2 hours...........lunching, shopping and gently bumping into the odd display or two!
When we came out the snow had all gone! I looked at a kerb about 3 inches high....should I try out my kerb climber? Hmmm? Nah, maybe next time!
By the way, i didn`t share Zelda`s awful snowy experience. Poor her, eh?
