I'm A Cripple, Get Me Out Of Here

Today is the 9th day running I've been stuck in the house and all being well.... I'm GOING OUT TOMORROW!!

So long as the weather doesn't take a turn for the worse my friend is going to pick me up tomorrow night as we're going to see The Hairy Bikers.  She reckons if I take my manual and she picks me up between us we'll be fine.  I hope she's right!

9 days since I've

  • worn shoes
  • sat in my powerchair
  • left the house
  • done any of my own errands or shopping
  • seen random people on the street
  • seen anyone unexpectedly
  • spent any cash.


I've coped a lot better than I expected I would with being stuck in.  Although I did resort to ordering Domino's for lunch today because I wanted a bit of comfort food and also because if I ordered a pizza I could also get them to bring some of my favourite sweet brown fizzy stuff.  Being stuck in lasted a hell of a lot longer than I thought it would too.

I am looking forward to getting out again but something tells me it's gonna be a bit strange.

But for the past six weeks or so I've needed to sew buttons back on my coat but haven't gotten round to it.  You would have thought given how long I've been home I would have found the time but no....

I hope you can get out of the house tomorrow Emma and have a lovely time seeing The Hairy Bikers with your friend.

Yay well done, you survived the lock-in. Still quite snowy here though I'm told the main roads are clear. Hoping to go out independently on Monday as, for the second week, no shopping was delivered on Weds and things are getting dire.
Have fun tomorrow xx
