Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Stairs, Steps, Ladders


Stairs, Steps and Ladders

I decided to make this post about ladders. I am hopeless with ladders because of my fear of falling. I can’t climb more than a couple of steps up a ladder. This is very inconvenient when it is time to replace light bulbs, re-hang curtains or do any painting or cleaning above my head.

The ladder in the first picture belongs to my “Garden Guys” who used it while constructing the pergola. There is no way you would get me on this ladder.

I have a small step-ladder which I can use to reach items from the top shelves in the kitchen, books on high shelves and my top shelf of dolls provided I have someone to hand them to. I can change light bulbs in a couple of rooms where the light fitting is close enough to a wall for me to touch it with my hand.

I need this to get to the top of my kitchen cupboards.

The old ladder is getting a bit rickety though and it is starting to make me nervous.

Looking a bit the worse for wear.

Now I’ve bought a brand new one with nice wide steps which I hope will make me less fearful.  So far I’ve not managed to climb onto the top step. If I can do that I will be able to paint the laundry and sunroom myself. If I can’t I will have to ask for help. However at least it will make reaching for the good china or the chocolates a bit less scary.
