Praise You Like I Should

People tell me good access should be a given, that places/businesses/people shouldn’t be praised for letting me in their building, a ramp shouldn’t mean a gold star. I agree. Access should just be a thing that happens. Not a topic of discussion, a cause for complaint or reward. Everyone should be able to experience everything.… Continue reading Praise You Like I Should

Gig Going – Like Anyone Else

‘Like anyone else’ Those are words I’ve longed to hear for a lifetime. That they should even be considered news in 2019 is unacceptable yet not all that shocking when you’re in my wheels. Having a disability doesn’t mean I want special treatment, equality is all I ever ask for. More than anything I wish… Continue reading Gig Going – Like Anyone Else

Shooting Stars And A Black Carpet – Ed Sheeran Chantry Park Ipswich

Ed Sheeran tickets were on sale. You may remember the last time this happened and my rant that preceded. This time I’m happy to report things went much smoother. Equally smooth anyway. There would be only two venues left for Ed Sheeran’s record breaking two and a half year long Divide World Tour. One of… Continue reading Shooting Stars And A Black Carpet – Ed Sheeran Chantry Park Ipswich

It’s Summer

It’s hot. Really, very, hot. I’m not a fan of moaning but it’s in our nature isn’t it, being British. We always need to have something to whine about. We’re not very good at dealing with it either, are we, weather I mean. Of most kinds. It’s too cold, too wet, too hot. There’s snow… Continue reading It’s Summer

Pickles, Bugs and Turkish Delight – Peter Beales Rose Gardens

Why is it we travel miles to visit places but never take advantage of what’s on our doorstep? Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think it is. We talk about beautiful views when on holiday, there are plenty right around us though. It was due to be a sunny Saturday (it wasn’t all that… Continue reading Pickles, Bugs and Turkish Delight – Peter Beales Rose Gardens

Westfield Stratford, London Stadium – Accessible Road Trip To Muse

Summer has arrived. Sort of anyway. The weather doesn’t seem to know what it wants lately, which means I never know what to wear. I had a woolly hat on the other day, in June. June! The sky has been a bit on edge lately too. The start of summer generally means gig season to… Continue reading Westfield Stratford, London Stadium – Accessible Road Trip To Muse

Circus Of Horrors Psycho Asylum

We’ve all seen The Greatest Showman haven’t we? The musical movie sensation that brought circus back and made us realise Zak Efron is in fact a man. A grown up one, no longer singing at the most inappropriate times, in school. I have a vague memory of going to the circus as a child, I… Continue reading Circus Of Horrors Psycho Asylum

Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible

Warning: this post may contain rants. In fact it is probably one big long rant! So Muse are on tour again, my single favourite band in the world. I loved them as a teen and then saw them at V Festival 2004. Why does 2004 not sound that long ago when it’s actually almost 15… Continue reading Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible

Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

You’ll know by now I love a festival, and Latitude Festival is by far my favourite. It’s magical, eclectic, arty and fairly civilised. I attended again this year for the 7th year in a row. I’ve raved about (in written form, I am not much of a raver in the other sense) Latitude Festival before… Continue reading Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

Cool Lifts and Cardigans

Hannah was late again (see I told you that would be the first line Hannah!). If you’ve been following my adventures for a while you’ll know Hannah is that late friend. We all have one. And if you think you don’t, then it’s probably you. We’ll forgive her this time, again, as it was her… Continue reading Cool Lifts and Cardigans
