Activities (out of doors)

1. I really enjoy bowls and tennis. I cannot hear the calls and so I find that it is best to tell people and then they can make allowances. They usually do.

2. I like to go jogging with a friend. We only chat when we’re at a standstill to avoid me running into lampposts, etc.

3. I enjoy canoeing even though I have to take my hearing aids out when on the water, which means I hear very little. I have a system of a few signals which people use to communicate with me whilst we’re out on the water.  It works quite well.
