The Spring blossom’s out in Cardiff.
Vicky came over from Bristol with a gift of fine Cuban cigars (US readers please note – I’m not supporting their economy, I’m burning their fields) and took me for a spin in Bute Park – my first outing beyond four hospital walls or the back garden. Very adventurous! It quickly became clear I need to trade in my wheelchair for a 4x4 model – mine’s hopeless off-road. Typical NHS – when’s New Labour going to start issuing SUV wheelchairs etc. etc. etc.
I also need to do something urgently about my sparrow-like biceps to enable to me wheel myself more than 50 yards without taking a rest. Hopeless.
