However, we figured that today was the day that we would just do it. We phoned the restaurant in advance to book a table and said that I was in a wheelchair - it wasn't a problem (as it shouldn't be, of course). Totally forgot that the carers were coming at lunchtime so that was a happy surprise, as they were able to help get me in the car too! It was a lot easier than I expected so hurrah for that. The journey was fine too, although it was only about 10 minutes.
Interestingly, it was a little tricky to get into the restaurant itself. The dropped kerbs were badly maintained and bumpy making them hard to get over, and there was a massive sign in the way that we had to maneouver around. I am tempted to send
a complaint feedback... But once we were in, it was fine!

The meal was delicious, the girls were beautifully behaved and we had a wonderful time. It's so good to know that we can do it as a family and I look forward to many such outings in the near future!
