Having spent the past five years casually leaning on walls, ostensibly to admire the view, collapsing delicately on every available seat and low wall and walking at less than a snail’s pace, I have decided to give in and buy myself a walking stick. Now this may not seem a momentous decision but once again, vanity has reared its ugly head. I don’t really mind getting older, I just don’t want to look it! Anyway the theory is, leaning on the stick equals less pain. That has got to be a good thing. I already take five different types of drugs so I refuse to take painkillers, in case they clash. They don’t work anyway. So, back to sticks and canes. I shall probably take months to choose one, ‘cause it has to go with all my outfits, LOL. So what do you reckon…..go for it?
