I'm also sooo skint, that is another reason why I’m glad I’ve been taken on as a health champion, because I will get transport costs now paid for. And honestly that's such a relief, as I was pissing the bank (and folk) off. Because I needed not only taxis, but comfy trainers, a backpack and massage sessions. Speaking of money, I will be £1200 pa better off now after packing in my mobility scooter.
STOP....is all I do, moan?
I don't know why I do it, because I’m actually very happy, which I put down to the exercise I’m doing. And the positivity I know folk get from seeing me ride my trike. Do I look funny or summat? :D
I can't tricycle past a pedestrian without them making a jolly quirky comment. I don't think a shy person could ever ride a trike.
I cycled to the coop at lunchtime. And I thought, wow, it's warm. I then did the coop and school run just for the hell of it really, because I think it does my kids good to see a disabled person participating in stuff. And the gang of teenagers, who'd laughed at me a couple of weeks ago? They are like best buddies wi' me now.
I got home and Dave from Pedal Ready came around, to fix a wing mirror on Gretel :) My kids love meeting my cycling friends because they're all so positive.
BTW..... lovely Steve from CTC gave me a fab bike lock yesterday, how much easier than those bloody awful combination ones. But I 'stoved' the large sharp knife into my hand last night, whilst taking tags and stuff off.....ouch! I needed a couple of stitches I reckon. But I’ve just got nicer things to do with my life, than wait in hospitals.
Thank you to everybody whose commented on my blog. It's great hearing from folk.
