Time for a change!

What do you do on rainy winter days?  What do you do on rainy winter days when you’re like me, hampered by an illness and more or less confined to staying at home or going out in a wheelchair?  What do you do if there’s also a pandemic and lockdown restrictions?  In my case the answer is …..

…. get out of the flat, avoid the crowds, and have some wheelchair adventures (with a little help from my creative blog master).

So here’s the result.  First, over to Camden to honour Dame Maggie ….

…. then down to the south coast for some fresh air …. .

… and in the evening, a bit of sport …

… but the wheelchair was rather limiting so the next day I took my exercise bike on a little competitive ride …

… and then decided on a final trip a bit further away, where wheelchair and bike weren’t needed.

It’s been an exciting time!

  10. What a wonderful wacky set of photos! If you’ve got to use a wheelchair, you might as well pretend to have some fun with it.
