Went down to the big smoke (London) yesterday for fatigue seminar, very useful but I have to say journey fromStoke-on- Trent was very easy, I’m knackered but the experience was great. I used the mobility scooter for the first time and I have to say both the train companies and TFL were brilliant. The buses now have a middle door where people can get off, but if you are on a scooter, or in a wheelchair, a ramp comes out the side of the bus and you can easily get on, and twice the bus drivers wouldn’t take my contactless card off me so I travelled for free on the buses! They don’t take cash any more so you have to have anOyster card or contactless for a journey. Train prople were very helpful and the disabled lounge inEuston was very welcoming. You get old and cynical but my faith in human nature was restored by Joe Public with doorways, loos, dropped purses etc. Met lovely people especially Bob, who was there because he has Chronic Fatigue syndrome so they we’re all MSers but very helpful and loads of email addresses swapped.😍
