Me on my new machine!
Well I thought the quickest way for me to get over my shyness at having to ride around on my new mobility scooter was to put this photo on Flickr and let the whole world know! As most of my contacts are aware I had spinal surgery last year and although I am walking a lot better than I was I still find it very difficult to go very far on foot. So with the arrival of Spring and the warmer weather on its way I decided to stop being stubborn and get myself something which would make life a lot easier and give me more freedom to get around. So here it is...my speedy little scooter which now means that others have to try and keep up with me instead of vice versa! I have to thank our Flickr friends Andy and Kay for introducing me to the freedom these scooters give to people like me, they hired one for me last year when we went to Brandon Marsh with them and I've wanted one ever since...thanks guys what do you think!
