My first one arrives in a week or two, at just 45 my back has had enough of crawling around on the floor.
I worked as a carer during the lockdowns. Washing and dressing people everyday involved a lot of kneeling, squating and bending. Found after a while I was more supple than ever before. I've lived in Cambodia. There, they squat, not use chairs; I never could, I'd get instant knee seizure and topple over backwards.

Now, I find I can squat when working on my bike*, and doing so keeps me, at 60, relatively supple. That's right, not only is this home mechanics malarkey keeping my brain exercised, but my joints too.

*I bought a bike again when it dawned on me I was only about fifteen years younger than the typical age of the care takers.
