its a gorgeous day today. Not boiling hot but very sunny. The sort of day when people pack up the first picnic of the year and take to the countryside or the seaside. I know that tomorrow at work i’ll be regaled with stories of where people went at the weekend.
Yesterday we went shopping. a mixed experience with excellent service in some shops and very mediocre treatment in others, marks and Spencer being a surprising example of the latter.
Today I’d just love to go out somewhere. but where? yes we could go to the local park, but that’s very limiting. yes, we could get on a bus or train and take off to wherever we wanted. but as two blind people, what do we do when we get there? Once you get off the train, you could be anywhere. even getting out of the station is a challenge.
Some blind people love this type of adventure but its not for me. Even shopping in Nottingham had its stresses yesterday and I’ve ended up taking product numbers of some things because it was too much hassle to order them in store for busy staff.
