Feeeeerking wheelchair!

It’s been a minute or millions, but I’m back….

Oh sand, how I would love to be able to travel on you

I have enjoyed a lovely mini break with my girls and Dan, to day we drove over to the seaside. Dan and the girls went on the beach to skim pebbles and look for shells etc, I was left on the concrete path that ran across the top of the beach, but I couldn’t go along said path because there was too much sand on said path. As you can see from the photo above, my wheels sank in, this was less than a meter into the path, and the chair refused to move.

On the beach.

They walked a fair distance down the beach to where Dan used to play as a kid on holiday with his nan and grandad, I was sat alone for about an hour.

You may ask why I didn’t just go up onto a different path and ride that way…… well it is because my wheelchair doesn’t go straight. Dan has to direct the chair while I press the control to go forward. The chair has a mind of its own. The breaks also don’t kick in quickly, ending in me on the floor, or as happened today, Freya on the floor under the front of the chair.

My phone has a good camera to pick them up roughly 500m away!

I know I seem like I am constantly moaning, and yeah, actually, I am, but wheelchair services don’t deem me as needing an electric wheelchair. I am hoping that the OT will be able to help when I see her, but I’m not hopeful!

Sending lots of love from me to you xxx

“Why is there a kid in here?”…..

Did you know that you can recycle a bouncy castle and a paddle/swimming pool? Me neither until yesterday!

We are currently homeschooling again with a 10 day isolation for both kids as someone at breakfast club tested positive. This is not a pleasant experience, Colby really struggles with schooling, and Moo hates when I have to pay him attention. By the end of the day….

Taken from an internet search.

I am tee-total, so I had a bottle of Lucozade instead. I also had some down time searching across the net where I came across this company who make AMAZING bags/pouches etc. How beautiful is this bag (I REALLY want one!)

These bags are made from recycled swimming/paddling pool and bouncy castles, how cool is that. Use and reuse.

I considered sending our old pools in to them, and rolling the kids inside them first, but. apparently I cannot do that however.

You mean I cannot recycle the kids into a new bike?

Check out my Instagram post about this amazing company, and have a look at their website and Instagram page.
