A List of Things I Weirdly Miss

I shared a post on social media last week that I’d written two years ago, when I’d been enraged at the inequality of booking concert tickets as a wheelchair user, which spurred a rant called Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible. Rereading this post got me thinking. I actually miss this stuff. I don’t… Continue reading A List of Things I Weirdly Miss

9 Winter Warmers For Dealing With The Cold

The older I get, the less a fan of winter I become. It’s 4.30pm right now, and it’s dark outside. I feel like hibernating, I mostly do (Edit: Even more so now we are on lockdown 2.0 of a pandemic that's been happening for going on a year now). I have no intention of leaving… Continue reading 9 Winter Warmers For Dealing With The Cold

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #8

If we were having coffee I’d say it’s not been long has it. When in fact in real life it feels like forever. These coffee chats could become a thing. I’m seeing less people, so pretending you’re here is good. I’m doing less things, so this format is great for rambling. If we were having… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #8

Solitude, Stress and Sanity – World Mental Health Day

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. People have their different struggles. I’m pretty rubbish at running. De-stressing, unwinding, and letting off steam isn’t always as spontaneous or easy to achieve when you rely on the assistance of others to do stuff. I’m not sure that in the midst of… Continue reading Solitude, Stress and Sanity – World Mental Health Day

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #7

If we were having coffee it would probably be in a garden. I’ve been doing a bit of that lately. What will happen when winter hits? I’m still shielding, or as close to shielding is possible when you rely on close contact with others to stay alive. Isn’t it ironic.... those that actually want to… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #7

4 Celebrations – 4 Years Blogging

As the title suggests, to celebrate my four years of Wheelescapades, I have four things to tell you. I’ve learned some stuffWho’d of thought I’d make it to year four? When I pressed publish on this very first post I didn’t know what would happen. Not many people saw it, nobody knew it was there.… Continue reading 4 Celebrations – 4 Years Blogging

12 Ways To Keep Cool As A Wheelchair User

Wheelchair users can be cool dudes, but that’s not what this post is about. I’m probably not the best to give advice for that as I sit here doing crochet and drinking a brew from my china cup. It’s got hot again. A bit like this time last summer. It tends to happen during the… Continue reading 12 Ways To Keep Cool As A Wheelchair User

I Went To A Graveyard So I Could Live

Sounds a bit dramatic doesn’t it? Well it’s much more true than I’d ever like to wish. The rebel that I am not, I went for a walk the day before shielding was paused. Yep shielding has paused, on the week that cases start to rise here in England UK. But we won’t go into… Continue reading I Went To A Graveyard So I Could Live

Pandemic Project – One Stitch at a Time (#The100DayProject)

I’m a crafter. It’s something I have to do. I’m rubbish at sitting still, and because my hands are the only thing I can move, I fiddle. One of my aims for the year was to take part in #The100DayProject and what better time for it to fall than in the midst of a global… Continue reading Pandemic Project – One Stitch at a Time (#The100DayProject)

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
