I never thought my son would tie my shoelaces, before his ninth birthday. I never thought he would push me in a wheelchair. It’s pretty good that he can get 80 kilos moving! It generates a lot of emotion for everyone.
He and Jane pushed me to the grassy areas of Waddesdon Manor, where I was able to walk. British readers will appreciate the phrase ‘leaves on the line’, used by rail companies to explain autumnal delays. Said leaves plus wet ground also present a hazard for stick users. As they say in Yorkshire ‘now you’re learning.’
