    I'm VERY ANXIOUS today because a holiday charity through Social Services paid for us to go for a long weekend to a Haven Holiday Park, starting today ... So I will be leaving my home to go on every piece of public transport to get there ... in my electric wheelchair ... I'm scared stiff ... would value encouragement :-)
