Cold, Wet and Grey Sunday
Sadly the weather has not been so good here this last week; it rained every time I wanted to go out.
Guess if I can't get a dry day I will just have to accept it is wet and go out nevertheless, not easy for me as rain is not my favourite.
Have to get warm clothes organised, really need a jumper and a pair of trousers, most of my clothes are just no longer suitable.
Lycra tops are no good now as they roll up and can not be pulled straight, not sitting in a wheelchair.
All my trousers are no longer any good as they cut into me sitting and they are not cut right.
In a wheelchair you need trousers that are made higher at the back to compensate for sitting down.
I need easy to put on clothes; most of my t-shirts are too much of a wrestling match to put them on me.
Think this is the time to shed all the unwanted clothes, give them to friends and to the clothes collecting container up the road.
Have been looking online for wheelchair clothes, what I have found is so sad looking that I could barely look at the pictures.
Very sad and slightly frumpy looking clothes on a website called My Life, which put me off looking further yesterday.
Some websites have photos of their products but a site like IT FITS has mainly line drawing of their products.
These bad drawings do not give you any idea what their garments will be like, and they are also not cheap.
Seems that no one has thought that people in wheelchairs not only come in all sizes and ages, but have varied tastes too.
But they do have taste though, not something any of the sites I have seen have seemingly thought about.
The sites I have found, all seem to want to sell a sad and unattractive clothes which is a real turn off for me, I used to be a very sharp dresser.
Sadly no longer not since the wheelchair has become an established part of my life.
The clothes I have seen were horrible and lacking any inspiration seems we are not just handicapped but need to look the part too.
Not me I still want to dress well and I will.
