‘Twas the night before Christmas…’


Well, all right, make a liar of me. It was actually the 16 December. On my way to post my Christmas parcels.

I was on my buggy/mobility scooter. Admittedly, overloaded with parcels. (You’ll have to imagine the parcels).

A bag was just about to slip off the handle. So I grabbed it. As you do.

Big mistake. ‘Cos I forgot to take my hand off the controller. Catastrophe!

My buggy went up the slope on the corner. And promptly overturned. Wallop!


Result–one broken hip. Carted off to hospital for a month.


Got home last Friday.

Happy New Year!
