My new wheels

You have to feel sorry for the long suffering Baggieboy, he now has to push me around in my new set of wheels, I guess I will have to start being nice to him now so he won't let go of me while going down hill, or tip me into traffic.

I don't have to use the chair all the time, in fact at the moment it is for when I want to go out for a 'walk' as it were. I am still working fall time and using the old legs but it is getting increasingly difficult, when I get home these days it is collapse in a heap and wait for the next morning. I also so spend far too much of the weekend recovering from the week. Hopefully my new wheels will bring on a bit more freedom.

Do you get to paint it purple? That is crying out for a "Pimp my ride" style make-over :) More freedom has to be a good thing.

Sidey spidey spidey, for once I have decided less is more. I may change my mind once I have got used to it. I will however be attaching fairy lights .

So sorry to hear that the wheels are needed, but hope you get used to them quickly and they make life easier for you.

They do need some sort of glamourising... I agree. Maybe Spiderbaby can knit somethng for it... knitted spokey-dokeys wouldn't be too noisy...

Ta Helen - I don't need it a;; the time, I am just about managing at work without it but I am shattered after work and spend the weekend resting so I can start again on Monday. With my new wheels (who I am thinking of naming Sophia after the film) I can get out and about a bit and not feel so isolated. Then if the time comes I need her for work as well I think I will need a bit of a career rethink!

So, the mister will be wheeling you around supermarket and various glamourous hot spots of Leeds?

Hope it helps, H x

We went into Wakefield today And we went in all the classy shops. I almost enjoyed it.

Knitted spokey-dokeys... Now there's an idea! I'll have to see what I can do :)

It sucks that you need it - but hopefully it will improve your 'free time' and socialising and make life a bit easier x

I now need to learn to do wheelies so I can manage kerbs by myself and then I can go out unaccompanied.
