So Steve and I set out shopping with the trusty wheelchair, Steve's first time out with it. It was great. If we were in a queue, I could just cuddle into his belly rather than leaning on my stick and shifting positions in agony. We could go at a reasonable speed, we didn't have to keep stopping, I had both my hands free, it was excellent. We had a nice cake at Druckers, and got some treats at Hotel Chocolat, had a look round Ann Summers (who I have to say were A1 on the accessibility front although I think the disabled changing room was being used for Naughty Things, I'm glad I didn't need to use it) and played with stuff in Hawkins Bazaar and the Early Learning Centre.
About three hours later we returned to Scott and Clare's flat and I had a half-hour nap. The plan was that we could then go out for dinner, but by the time I woke up Scott looked and sounded like death warmed up, Clare was starting to feel iffy too, and I was still pretty tired, so we just called it a day. I slept in the car on the way home, and we got some takeaway for dinner before snuggling down together. Lovely.
