Joining the Club!!!
I've just bought something I didn't want to buy - my first walking stick :? It folds up to go into my handbag and I'll probably leave it there! Checked on a web site and the right side to use it is the good side, BUT that would mean using my weaker, painful hand :? Still, I although I feel it would useful to use, I will feel very self concous using it around my home towns, as I may see someone I know and they'll think I'm making a big fuss. Its OK in the Village here, because we have no pavements and the lanes are narrow and bendy and sometimes you have to walk on the verge which is like a rough field. In fact I've used my lake district walking pole here and seen ordinary walkers, all with poles. So thats OK!!! I know, you don't have to say it, I'm one daft b........ and I know I've felt wobbly in town sometimes, so I'll get used to it. I going to decorate it with stickers and maybe a go-faster strip, yes.......
