Every now and again when Poppy’s pushing my wheelchair she’ll suddenly say ‘Look, no hands’ as a joke. She usually does this when we’re on a hill, and it makes me squeal with excitement even though I know she never normally lets go.
I was out and about with her last night. She was pushing my chair down a steep ramp when suddenly I saw both her hands in front of my eyes! I exploded with delight at this new manoeuvre.
Poppy quickly put her hands back on the handles before I whizzed away down the ramp. It made us both laugh – mischievous moments like this are important to me.
