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.

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.

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.
