I was just trundling back from Elthan high street when, coming the other way, I passed another guy with CP in a powerchair. We had passed eachother briefly before and we had said hi, but this time we stopped and had a brief conversation. His name was Fred and we live on the same road. His speech was clearer than mine so he didn’t use a communication aid, but I suspect he was older than me. I said he could pop round sometime as he seemed a friendly chap. That marks the first friend I’ve made since moving to Eltham – hopefully the first of many.
