".....So, Elbow gig was amazing, can't decide if the highlight was having some beers with them backstage or when Mr Garvey dedicated a song to Jen and I mid concert!!! ....all in all not too shabby really!"

Yep so that was definitely the highlight of the past week! As that aside its been pretty quiet really...physio is on the wind down in preparation for going home! Sounds counterintuitive really (and is) but there argument is when you go home you won't have scheduled physio everyday so it gives you some time to get used to that fact! ...but I've achieved all the goals we had set so can't grumble they've done a great job, the next phase is down to me and I've got to push on with it all, pardon the pun! ....in o.t. I've been doing more car transfers and taking the chair apart, it is getting easier but remains far from easy!
I'm looking forward to hopefully having a go at driving next week as the car at the unit has adapted hand controls, so basically a lever you push and pull to accelerate and brake and a handle on the steering wheel so you can steer one handed, surprisingly you don't need to do another test or anything you're allowed to just go for it! Which is a little scary, not so much for me but more so for all you other road users! ....if you're driving round Southport I'd look out for a maroon Focus over the next couple of weeks and take a seriously wide berth if you see it!!
