We moved into our third house on Crete during the spring of 2020. The pandemic Covid-19 was raging around the world but our island was only seeing a very few cases.
We both loved the house when we first saw it and going back to Kambia was a plus in both our lives.
Initially the house only posed one problem, but we thought we could soon put this right. There were too many steps around the pool area and footpaths around the house.
My withered leg and dropped foot was affecting my walking more and more. When I started developing pains in my right leg, I feared the worst, so we bought a motorised wheelchair and looked to have the hardscaping levelled out. This is what we did !
We had the gravelled areas brought level with crazy paving as a contrast to the house and existing tiling.
We had a concrete area laid to the workshop area and the step removed to the front access path. We also had another crazy paving path added to the rear access gate of the parking area. We were finally level all round the house.
Not only access all round the house but I also had a path to the woodstore and the new shed which would be a materials store. My wheelchair could now get almost everywhere. A great feeling.
Trying to buy a wheelchair at the right price was proving almost impossible. I was dealing with websites all over China, as this seemed to be the way to go.
Eventually I found an advert that looked promising and placed an order. The chair was coming from the UK and as Brexit hadn't happened yet, there was no additional taxes to pay.
