A measure of what an exciting life I lead is that the most memorable thing to happen this week is today having an assessment for my new wheelchair! 😀 All the really dull stuff was already done when my MS nurse did the referral, today was just taking some measurements and selecting the chair and accessories that I wanted. I managed to get a nice lightweight chair that I can easily dismantle and put in the car while sitting in the drivers seat. So I now have a good quality, purpose made and well fitted wheelchair which was free thanks to our wonderful NHS, people need to value it before the government sell it all off.
Getting the new wheelchair has been quite timely, I have now started the process of beginning some new volunteering positions, both are with rehabilitating offenders which will fit nicely with my experience at the Probation service.
I love the work I do for Love Underdogs but adding the new placements will make me feel worthwhile again, pesky people will never take the place of my pooches though. 😀

And for those pooch people that prefer an oldie, there is 8 year old Bruno who has been waiting for 233 days so far. 😦
