Off we go then ...

Ok! after my entry about the visit we made to my birth place ,a number of you have been enquiring about my buggy/scooter,so I thought I would share some pictures and facts with you
As you can see when I shop locally I can easily bring home the bacon and erm lots of other items of shopping.It is in fact a 'Wispa'and I love it,I bought it second hand about four years ago ,after seeing an advert on the Co op notice board for £125.00,and what a bargain it has turned out to be because I was having problems with my back  weakened over the years lifting residents in my care ,we didn't have hoists in my day .
 
 Not only do I use is to ride around our little Market town ,usually on the pavement as its not to big ,useing lowered pavements to cross the road where there are no crossings ,we can put it into the boot of a car/taxi for me {useful for meetings as you can see below}at a tenants conference.Where our operations director was heard  to mutter 'Hmm Madge ' !
Just charge it up and like my title says off we go ,
My buggy stands in the hall of our bungalow ,when not in use so takes up no room at all
 
 
 
Its nice for riding around in the summer
 
And the winter
 
And Family days out

Those of you who watch the TV programme Benedorm will see that Madge has one like mine   

Here is the late lovely Wendy Richards ,who also appeared in Benedorm ,as well as playing Pauline Fowler in Eastenders

 
Well I think that just about covers it for now....but I will leave you with one word of warning!
 
Beware Buggynappers

As usual all my love Jan xx

I love your little scooter that lets you go with a lot more ease. You really got it at a good price too. Hopefully with nicer weather on the way you'll be out and about more than ever.

Love Pat.

I'm so glad you have your scooter. My Johnny's was too big for me so my son sold it for a good price to somebody who needed one. It was a beauty. If my health problems keep going as they are I'll no doubt get one myself down the way. I live in a 55 plus apartment building so many people have them here. Fortunately they're good drivers. Take care of yourself. You used to read me at Hey Let's Talk in J-Land. Now I'm on blogger at Let's Chat. Hope you stop by sometime.

VERY NICE! JAN.
I can just see you zipping around the shops in it.
My daughter had to use one after her spinal operation. She had many a high jinks in hers. She got sandwiched in the automatic doors of a shop when she didn't get through on time. Another incident was when she pressed the wrong gear and she went backwards into a rack of knickers on a lingerie bracket.. she pulled them along with her like bunting. hahahaha! We have had many a laugh over hers...gone now thank the Lord!
Take care...xxxxx

I love your scooter! A friend of mine used to have one like yours and called it Beepy! She had a massive horn on it so that we could hear when she was coming along to work (the reaction around her was usually laughter from this but also a bit of jumping too!). Just found your blog and looking forward to reading some more of your posts. Chel x
