    Some of you might remember about 3 months ago I had a trial run of an electric add on for my self propel wheelchair. Well, I decided to go ahead, I paid the deposit and the last 10 weeks or so have been going by really slowly, but finally I'm expecting a phone call tomorrow to arrange delivery! :Woot
    So hopefully I'll have it in the next week or two. :Happy

    I saw a guy with one the other day - they’re brilliant!

    I’m sure it’ll make getting around easier.

    Oh cool, yes they are.

    I'm sure it will :) I just need to practise, get used to the controls and teach Bungo to walk nicely next to me, then we can be the terror of the pavements ;)
    It'll mean I can move at a better pace for Bungo too and I can give my poor shoulder a rest, I've been having some trouble self propelling lately, hopefully a rest will sort it out.

    Not promising anything, but the people I'm getting it from seem to video you trying it out for the first time and upload to their facebook page, so you might get to see that.
    I will upload a photo or two, or ten though :D

    Sounds good :).

    For videos i'm sure you can save them off FB and then upload to flickr or vimeo (the two I use). Sorry if you already know this but just figured I'd put it on.

    Hopefully you get the call today @ForestWomble . Not the same but I'm starting a new job in the new year and the amount of times I've had to call/email to chase them up has been ridiculous. May be worth giving them a call if you have their number and you don't hear anything? If your anything like me you'll feel better once you know :).

    Yes, hopefully today.

    As you say, if only they realised. It's not just the hope either, but this is a huge amount of money for me, so these promises of phonecalls that then don't happen make me a tad worried as well.

    Thank you.
    Yes I'm the same, will be happier once I know what's happening. I was thinking I'll phone tomorrow if I don't hear anything today.
    Good Luck with your new job, sorry to hear it's been, what sounds to be, so stressful for you.

    No phonecall yet, not even an email or something to let me know what's going on :(

    This is really starting to worry me .......
