Getting down isn’t a problem;getting up is,especially in the garden where it involves crawling to the nearest support and heaving myself up. K. sent away for a kneeler with metal handles at each end, and it has been very useful, except for a tendency to tip me into the flower bed if I lean too far forward.

When the kneeler was delivered, it came with a stack of leaflets which I read. Big Mistake. What joys we pensioners have to look forward to – bunion pads, long-handled toenail clippers, walking aids, incontinence pads – the list seemed endless – Add depression to all the diseases old age is heir to and there is only one answer, give up reading.
You Have Been Warned!
