Sequined Leggings & a Viking Day Out
Christmas Sales Haul. I got them from French Connection during the sale (down from £120 to £36) & haven't worn them out much. Mostly because they freak my brothers out - they don't know how to deal with them...guys are so easy to unnerve lol. Anyway, I went on a 'day out' with my family on Friday (stupidly but I'll get to that later) & this is what I wore...

Things didn't start out great, my idiot of a foster brother dropping one of my wheels (which contain the motors) very hard & then whining that it hurt his finger...the traders were split between the Merchants' Hall which is a REALLY old building & a tent in St Sampson Square.
Anyway, this was the good bit of the day...& kind of where my photos end. On the way to St Sampson's Square my wheelchair broke down. Thankfully I was in the M&S trying to warm up so when I needed to get out of my chair for my brother to try & fix it there was somewhere for me to sit. The manager who was on duty was really kind & thankfully it was possible to sort enough to get home but I was crazy scared for the whole of the rest of the day (which is why the photos dried up). The tent in St Sampson Square might have been accessible if I wasn't so worried about my chair but there were some pretty hefty lips at all the ramps & it was a steep angle, definitely not possible in a manual chair...
Understandably all of this left me knackered & the post exertional malaise was kind of extreme...my hand was paralysed for an hour at one point & the pain wasn't fun.
Regardless, I am so proud of how this outfit, the day was totally worth it :)
