Shielding In Accessible Isolation

Warning: may contain rambling. I went out last week for the first time since March. When I say out I mean I went to the doctors for a necessary routine appointment. If I didn’t have to I wouldn’t have. It felt weird. And I came straight home. I’m still shielding (still without a sword!) and… Continue reading Shielding In Accessible Isolation

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #6

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I really really miss coffee. Yes I’m predominantly a tea drinker. But I’m a coffee shop coffee drinker and it’s coming to iced coffee season. My favourite of them all. I want to sit in a café. I don’t want anything epic, just a quiet people watching… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #6

Accessibility Problems That Make Me Abandon My Virtual Shopping Trolley – Guest Post

I’ve raved and ranted about what accessibility means to me. That’s my viewpoint, what I know and what I need. I moan about steps at store fronts, narrow isles and ridiculously small lifts. Online shopping isn’t a favourite of mine, though I do take for granted that at the click of a button I can… Continue reading Accessibility Problems That Make Me Abandon My Virtual Shopping Trolley – Guest Post

Gotta Get Through This – 9 Tips For Self Isolation

I’ve lost count of how many days it’s been since I left the house. I feel I should have started a tally carved into the wall like a prisoner marking the days until release. Leave my mark. A piece of history. It’s what we’re living right now. History. I know every yesterday is the past.… Continue reading Gotta Get Through This – 9 Tips For Self Isolation

Disabled Access Day – Isn’t Just A Day

Inadequate access. Good access. Crazy access. Access. It’s basically why I blog, why I started writing and ranting to you almost four years ago. I wanted to raise awareness of what access is, how it can improve and the places that get it spot on. Because it’s a part of my life. Access isn’t just… Continue reading Disabled Access Day – Isn’t Just A Day

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #5

If we were having coffee you’d probably come round mine as I’ve only left the house a few times this year. One of which was in an ambulance. At one point last month I had a running streak of 12 days inside. By that I mean I didn’t even step into the garden. It’s worrying… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #5

12 Steps to Becoming a Confident Wheelchair User (pun intended)

I recently got a new wheelchair, well I got it almost a year ago, but things take time to get used to. You may have heard my moans. It wasn’t until I got my new wheels, a chair totally different than any I’ve had before, that I really considered the impact my wheelchair has on… Continue reading 12 Steps to Becoming a Confident Wheelchair User (pun intended)

Talking Toilets With Invisibly Me – Guest Post

We are all guilty of having given the odd inward eye roll when we see someone walking out of the accessible toilets. I know I have, briefly doubting their need for using them, silently accusing them of just not wanting to queue, skipping the wait, but then stopping myself. Feeling ashamed. I’m a bad person.… Continue reading Talking Toilets With Invisibly Me – Guest Post
