Busy with baskets and a weekend away
We have successfully completed our weekend away in Wales(Cwmbran). Everyone was so pleased to see us and we were made very welcome. Lots of help was offered. I managed the driving there and back with no problem Motorway on the way out and non-motorway on the way home -some lovely views in the sunshine. Our friends took us out in their cars while we were there which seemed to work well as we were able to enjoy their company. Unfortunately Ron was not at his best physically so was not able to walk about the room as we had hoped but we managed with the wheelchair although it was very tight in the bathroom as we did not have a disabled room. Not sure what was wrong with Ron but I think being in a strange place unsettled him, so much of this disability is down to the mental outlook and ability, if only we could bottle a little physiotherapist because they fill him with confidence and then he can do loads of things. Last week he was able to climb up three steps and then down the other side plus he walked the length of the gym pushing the wheelchair and then walked for 2 minutes on the treadmill but in the hotel he could hardly stand upright.
However we have shown that we can manage so let's look at what else we can do this year!!
