Alan spent today with his feet up while I was having a very pleasant lunch with a friend. He says that he is back to where he was before he fell on Saturday. I went to a mobility shop and bought a pair of crutches. I had rung on Saturday to ask the cost and was told £21. Today the chap who was running round like a headless chicken though I was the only person in the shop said that he had a pair of crutches used just once and then returned, hence the slight marks, normally £54 but I could have them for £30. Oh, I said, I was quoted £21 when I called on Saturday. Can’t think why you were told that, he said, but in that case you can have them for £20. Alan hasn’t really tried them as yet but we have a fair distance along Baker Street to walk from the station tomorrow so they will be tried out.
There was a lot of rain overnight and the path and car park are a sea of muddy water so I dug out my wellies from the garage at home and have had a lovely time stomping around in puddles.
