I am driving again – this is a huge deal! The feeling of sitting behind the wheel of my lovely car again was great – it just feels so good to be mobile and semi-independent. Even though realistically if I did go shopping, my purchases would sit mouldering in the car until removed by someone else, and I can’t reach everything on the shelves from an electronic wheelchair it still feels great to know that theoretically I could pop out for a pint of milk.

_MG_5163We are also Granny-less for a couple of days – Scotty Granny left yesterday, but happily Funny Granny is coming tomorrow! I have no idea how could manage without them – so a big shout out for the Grannies!

Walking is getting easier and I am hoping to be crutch free next week…!



Yesterday was momentous, but today even more so!

Yesterday released me from the last eight weeks of mainly sitting around on my bum.

Whale watching

Roaming around the inlets, islands and open ocean searching for whales, sealions, seals, otters, bears and eagles has been a feature of this summer’s vacations on both sides of the country.
