So, the winter is finally here. It snowed quite heavily in my part of West Yorkshire on Saturday (much to my kids delight). Where I live the snow didn’t really settle, but up where Dan works still had a fair bit of snow this morning.
I didn’t do the school run this morning as Moo is still quite poorly and I don’t want her out in the freezing cold. My amazing friend Mel took Colb to school for me, however he insisted on taking his scooter and fell before he had got 50yard from the back gate. I told him to leave the scooter at home but he refused and I didn’t want to have Mel in the cold with her little one while he kicked off. Tomorrow if it’s like this he WILL NOT be taking the damn scooter, I will just have to deal with the tantrum!
I had a thought after seeing him fall, how am I going to manage with the icy and possibly snow covered paths in my wheelchair. We have already seen I can be thrown out of my chair (into nettle bushes and main roads) on a lerfdd red cat dry, sunny day, how am I going to manage when it’s slippy? I have already had one near miss when my brakes didn’t apply quickly enough. To be perfectly honest, I’m scared at the moment. I know I will soon find out, but the school run is going to be an apprehensive one when I finally attempt it.
I have to say, I went to Asda while it was snowing, and I was wearing my M8 Apparel hoodie. It is one of the warmest and cosiest hoodies I have ever had. If you get chance pop by their website and have a look, tell them I sent you! https://m8clothing.com/
Could you also take the time to pop over to my gofundme, and if you cannot donate, please give it a share, or recommend anyone I could get in touch with to help/ways to try and raise some money so I can get my new chair, it’s winter ready and would make me less nervous going out on my own/with the kids. https://gofund.me/03c3b97d
Stay safe and stay warm
Lots of love, Sx
