    Little wins

    At last I have been able to put my summer dresses on.However my hubby didn’t seem impressed. He has to take me to the bathroom, several times a day, sort out my undies and usually a pair of trousers. What’s the problem, I asked. He said holding my dress up and pulling my undies down wasn’t easy.Then he came in holding a peg . He was so pleased that a simple little peg , to clip my dress up and out of the way.A little win for once.

    LesleyB it’s the little things that mean a lot even if it is so simple. Glad he was made up for himself. If he comes up with any other good ideas, don’t forget to share again😀😀 xx

      It would stop the ends of the dress getting a dunk in the loo too...

            I use pegs for rolling his t-shirt and jumper up and out of the way when I flush his peg. I also use them to keep a hand towel in place instead of an apron or bib. I always keep some in the car. They just come in useful. 🙂
            when i can think of something profound i will update this.

              Little wins are so important, even if its just finding a new and easier way of doing things.

              My hubby has to help me in the loo like yours LesleyB. Loose dresses and wearing no knickers really helps ( would have been his dream at one point 😅!)

              I'm going to keep a peg handy too xxx 😘🤗

                Ps. Just a warning about the above attire. Take special care on the seafront in a powerchair when there is a strong breeze. 😅😚☺x

                        Some dresses and skirts could do with weights in the hems. Its difficult to look elegant when you are hanging onto your frock!!😯

                            I agree, no knickers no trousers, just a knee length dress for me, so much easier for hubby to transfer me. I just have to be careful when out on my electric wheelchair if it’s windy 😜

                              My hubby is very chuffed at your comments. We have pegs all over the house now.
