Since my hip and back have started giving me jip I am finding it increasingly difficult to get out of the car.
Getting in is fine. Right leg in, flop in seat and the other leg sort of follows , lol
But getting out is a bit trickier. I have to get the left leg out first and this is the bad hip side, therefore I can't put a lot of weight on this leg, so I'm sort of hauling myself out. I'm sure you've seen elderly people doing this lots of times, I have but never thought I'd come to it, lol
Purely by chance the other day I sat on a carrier bag on the seat and couldn't be bothered to get back out to remove it.
When it came to getting out of the car I found out that I could swivel on the bag and get both feet out together (are you picturing this?) then all I had to do was stand up.
I know it's not rocket science but it works.
So, anybody out there having trouble getting out of your car, try the swivel bag method.
Any bag will do but the strong ones are best.
