Well they  are for me anyway. The secret is not to wait for things to happen, but to make them happen. Don’t always wait to be told, just get on with it. Because you know you can.

For me this week has been one big step forward after another. Pat and I have erected a shelter in the side yard (mostly Pat) so the scooter is now safe and dry at all times. I asked the physio’s to lower the bed risers after proving I was able to rise easily from the perching stool and Mowbray, which we lowered ourselves. we also asked them to install a step and rail system to the back door step, and they agreed! It’s coming next week. Today I’m wearing shoes that I’ve not been able to wear since last October, and not only are they comfortable, but also they make walking easier. I am now able to use BOTH arms to carry the perching stool around, and, as you can see, I’m excited by it all, oh and I’ve learned to blow my own trumpet——— forgive me.

Now I’m planning my first trip on the scooter out on the road – it might even be next week if I feel ready, — watch this space.

Boasting over, it doesn’t become me anyway.

I have a friend from years ago who is really going through a bad spell in his life. I’ ve not seen or spoken with him in years, but I think of him often, and just maybe my successes will inspire him in his struggles. I hope so.  GO MIKE!,GO!.                                                      (The ( other)  www is a friend too, although there are some issues to be addressed — good luck E it feels so good to be nice sometimes.) not that it is my place really to enter the ring.

Next time I’ll report on the ride out, all being well.
