I didn't mean to be quite so cryptic yesterday... here is the post on my walking sticks.  I wanted to look at desks yesterday instead of writing a blog post!

I have M.E. 
I can't really walk far. 
I have a great deal of problem with my balance. 
So I use walking sticks. 

I hate them. 

But they allow me to do things I couldn't do with out them,
they are essential.

If I have to have them they will at least be pretty!!


A few years back I criss-crossed some cerise ribbon up and down them.  I got bored of the pink and decided it was time for a change.

I used this and this ribbon and a hot glue gun.

I think Keep Calm And Carry On is quite an apt saying. 
The sticks and wheelchair are like magnets for peoples eyes
and I don't like being looked at,
being scanned for an injury or disability,
given a look,
being overtaken by an OAP!!  (Yes, that really did happen!!)

I get flustered. 
I get panicked. 
I get even more tired. 
So Keep Calm And Carry On is probably the best ribbon I could have found for this project.

Now all that is left to do is make my wheelchair pretty!!!

  1. I had to pop over to find yesterday's "mystery" solved. Love the purple ribbon and the Keep Calm message. Those of us who move through the world *without* visible health issues are blessed and I'm sorry that this is not the case for you.

  2. Sorry to hear about the ME the sticks look awesome. If you have to have them then you may as well pimp them up ;)


Thank you for taking the time to comment.
I love to read your messages...
