40 year old son visits 100 year old grandfather. I am sure they had some stories to tell.

I discovered a complete series of these in different colours.

It has become a fact that if I want to go anywhere this walking aid comes with me and I am not very happy about it. Just a walk in the apartment, and I have to manoeuvre it around corners, over obstacles in the way and eventually park it in a place near. It has become my companion.
In this case I just wanted to go outside and take a few photos. I had to guide it over the steps remembering to lock it in between, otherwise it might run away. If I go anywhere it goes with me. Luckily I can fold it together when I take a ride in the car. I have a container on the front where I can deposit a camera and my Kindle also fits nicely. At home I am also accompanied by my iPad and telephone which have room on the platform.
I am not really liking my facts of life at the moment. Gone are the days of indenpedemce. Now I have to think about it first of all. The walker is parked next to my bed during the night and I have to take it to that certain place that most of us visit at night. Cooking with it can get complicated when I have to chop the veg or use the cooking range. I have devised a method where I can stand and not move and use my walking stick. Now and again I have to tidy it, as the bag at the front seems to collect bread crumbs, various vegetable remains, pasta and paper handkerchiefs.
Today my physio therapist informed me that it is now only six weeks since my accident, as if to say, I am not ready for taking independent steps. But I did achieve my goal this afternoon.
I took a photo of my lent roses, on the the left and my christrose on the right. They are one of the first in the garden, and I did not want to let them disappear without a photo. They are late this year probably because of the snow falls. It is not easy taking a photo with the walker, especially has I had to do it free hand, without holding onto anything.
But every day something new and different.
Daily Promompt: Facts
This is all I can manage for a photo this morning: just my frugal breakfast and a computer – what a life I lead. Glorious sunsets are not in the programme and outside it is nothing spectacular, although the snow has now disappeared and some Spring flowers are beginning to show.
This morning my physio therapist is arriving at 10.00 and I should be washed dressed and ready when she is here. In the meanwhile there is breakfast to be dealt with and a cleansing session in the shower, as well as a blog to write. Even that is pear shaped as I just pressed something and my blog page turned into a mega size with giant letters. However, I have now got it back to normal size with a Ctrl mouse,
Mr. Swiss will be off on a shopping excursion for food and a few bits and pieces. We tend to forget some important stuff lately but Mr. Swiss now takes a photo of what we need to enable him to find it in the store. Yes we are cyber golden oldies and apply all our online knowledge. Before I garbaged the empty containers I showed them to Mr. Swiss and he captured the image with his mobile phone camera. The image automatically goes into my photo programme and there is no danger of not finding or forgetting what we should buy.
No. 2 son and his wife will be visiting next Sunday with No. 1 grandson which I am looking forward to. Time goes so fast and junior, Alexander the Great, is growing and is already 6 months old. Time goes quickly.
And I must now go, this is really just a quick note to tell everyone that I survived the night, although my knee reported back at 2.00 in the morning which I was not very happy about.
In the meanwhile my walker is parked in the kitchen and ready to take me to other places.
Have a good day, take it easy and be careful where you tread.
