Hi everyone. I am new to writing on this forum & it has taken me a while of dipping in & out, to write something, so be gentle with me please!!
my first discussion (hopefully) is about the dreaded stairs!
in the summer when the weather is warm & mostly dry, I am able to walk up & down the stairs quite well. A bit of aching but that’s ok. The minute the damp, wet & grey weather comes I am reduced to gripping the handrail & putting my other hand on each stair as I very slowly negotiate upwards. Coming down I have to go sideways with both knees heading the same way & I feel like I have aged forty years then.
im sure you all have many of the same problems as I do, too many to list but the stairs are the worst thing. Even my toilet is against me as it’s upstairs.
yes we could move into a bungalow, but the prices are so high now & we can’t really afford to move.
what do others do in this situation? I’ve been thinking of leaving a ‘reward’ half way up !!!
