Camping in our new caravan. Hard work! Poor Andy had to do everything. I am so helpless now. It feels rubbish not being able to help with anything. I just sit all day. I was in my wheelchair all the time. It was nice though and the kids had a ball! Rachel and Ged were there with their family. My speech is noticeably getting worse now. It’s a critical point; I’ve tipped over into a place where people don’t understand me. It’s hard work as I have to repeat things a lot, and shout to get understood. I have an app on my iPad which can speak for you if you type things in. I’ve not really used it yet, as it’s a man’s voice and if I want to change it to a woman’s I have to pay for an upgrade! That can’t be right. My sister Debbie is doing ‘voice banking’ at the moment for me – recording her words so that eventually I can use them and I will speak in her voice! How weird is that!
