After several times answering a knock at the door (costing loads of pain, time, effort and maneuvering around floor obstacles with my cane) to be greeted by a sales person or snake oil religious being, I changed the sign on our door from "Please be patient, I am disabled and it takes me some time to get to the door." to
"DO NOT KNOCK ON THIS DOOR UNLESS YOU ARE DELIVERING SOMETHING OR WE KNOW YOU.
ANY SALES WEASELS OR DOOR TO DOOR RELIGION PUSHERS WILL BE GREETED BY AN ANGRY PERSON WHO CURSES WELL."
I am first of all a curious person who enjoys learning new things, and re-learning old ones particularly ancient crafts. I have been disabled for about 10 years now, each year the arthritis thing impacts my abilities more. I am so grateful for my electric wheelchair as ti means I can go on dates again with my beloved Oscar (we will celebrating our 13th anniversary this summer).
I am also a writer (mostly of book reviews) and a knitwear designer. But mostly I am curious.
