Nursing home in the countryside. Lady needs to see outside for a "walk" so that she is reminded that there is a life worth trying to get better for. Lady is helped into wheelchair, wrapped up in coat, hat, blanket etc etc. An escape is effected out of nursing home (once the keypad on the door has been negotiated). It is raining, but only lightly. Lady in wheelchair is given umbrella to keep her dry. Lady has a lovely "walk" and goes back in with a bit of a smile.
Person pushing wheelchair. Pushed wheelchair along on slippery leaves and negotiated gates while pushing wheelchair. Wheelchair is very low, so person pushing has to keep stooping down. Person pushing wheelchair is wearing high heeled boots and has no coat on. Route chosen is seemingly uphill. There and back. How can that be. The ground is all level because it is a nursing home....... Lady in wheelchair has no idea that she is banging umbrella into the forehead of stooped over person pushing wheelchair. A third person is walking alongside the wheelchair and tries to hold another umbrella over person pushing wheelchair, while talking to the lady in the wheelchair. Third person also has no idea that she is banging umbrella into the side of the head of the person pushing the wheelchair. Third person is happy that lady has been outside.
Person pushing wheelchair returns to nursing home with head that has been bashed in the forehead and side by two different umbrellas, has backache from stooping over to push wheelchair, exhausted from steering on slippery leaves and pushing uphill all the way - or so it seemed. Person did manage to remember the different code to get back into the nursing home though. Why it is a different one to get in. Person has no idea, surely if they have escaped out no one is going to prevented from escaping back in?
Lady needs to be returned to her room. Person pushing wheelchair inserts lady in wheelchair in lift, doors close. No room to turn or breathe. Person pushing has to reverse out of lift. Thanks to audience of nurses who appear out of nowhere person manages to steer wheelchair into door frame. Person has to effect 200 point turn to get wheelchair heading in right direction while nurses look on. Person then has to remember way back to ladies room, as nursing home has miraculously turned into rabbit warren and all corridors look the same.
Person pushing wheelchair is now exhausted and roasting hot. Person pushing is sure that nursing home is heated to 1000 degrees.
Person pushing wheelchair is happy too though because lady has been outside and managed to hold an umbrella (sort of).
Guess who was pushing the wheelchair and now has a dent in the side of her head where the umbrella held by the able bodied third person hit her.........
Lady says she has never read Winnie the Pooh and asks person pushing wheelchair to read it to her on next visit. Person now has to ransack house to find copy of Winnie the Pooh. Person hopes that she doesn't sustain any book related injuries because she had no idea she would sustain an umbrella related injury.....
p.s. the leaves were being cleared and were only in places where residents don't walk on their own so it was safe, it was only slippy because person pushing wheelchair chose to go that way.
p.p.s. person is more than happy to do anything to try and cheer lady up and get her well again so that she can go home as lady doesn't like being in a nursing home and doesn't want to have to stay there.
