A couple of people on here sound like they would benefit from having a mobility scooter, my husband was totally against having one at first saying that they were only for old people, he's 64 so hardly young anymore, we pretty much forced him into having one and now he loves it and wouldn't be without it. He can get out and about in the local area, go to the shop or to our daughters and granddaughters houses whenever he wants to, he was virtually housebound before. His pride was stopping him from enjoying his life, if this is your problem too take the plunge, get a scooter it will give you your life back and I'm not trying to sell you anything just telling you the truth X

You are right John Bradley but for those people who can't walk more than a few steps without severe pain and like my husband were house bound then they are a Godsend.

Mobility scooters are nice but if you can still move without one i would suggest doing so because the more idle you are the stiffer and more pain you will experience in my opinion any way

It's lovely if you can get out and about I can't walk very far before the pain takes over but I don't give in I still keep trying it might only be to the end of the road but some times I have to wait until the pain has come down a little before I can get back home it must be lovely to be able to go for a walk with your dog

I love the winter, by this time of the year I'm fed up with the summer and the heat which has been unbearable at times this year. Can't stand feeling hot and sweaty and really suffer in the hot weather. I have asthma so I have to be careful of the cold air which always triggers the asthma for me. I have to wrap a scarf around my mouth when going out in the cold it stops me from breathing in the cold air directly. I am looking forward to getting some snow this year, looks like we are going to get a cold one this year as we had such a warm summer. The worst weather is the warm and wet constant rain that we have been getting plenty of recently. I miss the proper seasons we used to have when I was a kid, you knew where you were with them now it's so changeable day to day and you have to take your sunglasses and suncream as well as a raincoat and umbrella every where you go.
