That Time I Didn’t See Ross Noble

I should be at the theatre tonight. Right now as I publish this post I should be chuckling so hard that my face hurts, as Ross Noble tells his surreal ponders in that excitable Geordie accent. Instead I’ve got my heated blanket on my lap, and the rubbish that is Saturday night entertainment is on… Continue reading That Time I Didn’t See Ross Noble

My Year In Books – 2021 (part 2)

It’s been a bit quiet over here of late. There’s not much to report, but there will be new coffee talk soon, so stick around for that. I have been reading, though. Quite the variety these past couple of months. Here’s my latest lineup, and if you missed the previous instalment head over to My… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2021 (part 2)

7 Things SMA Has Given Me

Today marks five years since I published my first blog post. It feels like only yesterday, and also feels like I’ve never not blogged. What did I do with my time before? What did I procrastinate from? Because as much as I do enjoy writing, I’m even better at finding other things to do while… Continue reading 7 Things SMA Has Given Me

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #11

If we were having coffee I would turn up in my mask. Because although they’ll become optional from tomorrow, it’s an easy thing to do isn’t it, wear a mask (those actually exempt for health reasons excluded). Ditching the masks isn’t the only event tomorrow. So called ‘Freedom Day’ is happening and it doesn’t feel… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #11

My Year In Books – 2021 (part 1)

Back at the start of 2021 I wrote a two part blog post My Year In Books. There wasn’t must going on in life, and that doesn’t seem to have changed that much. With yet another lockdown through the first part of this year, and more shielding to be done, I reached that stage where… Continue reading My Year In Books – 2021 (part 1)

It’s All The Same Really

It’s been an eventful few days I tell you. I crossed to the other side of my front door 7 days in 10. Most of those I got further than my garden, some of them I even left my town, and one of them I went inside a restaurant. But we will get to that… Continue reading It’s All The Same Really

My Stone Painting Obsession – #The100DayProject

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have been recently inundated with painted stones. It all started with a Christmas gift. I’m a crafter, always have a project on the go. So, the go to gift for me is a craft kit. Last year I received a metallic stone painting one. With way too much… Continue reading My Stone Painting Obsession – #The100DayProject

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #10

If we were having coffee it would be in my garden. Because we’ve reached that stage again. Come full circle if you like. It’s been over a year since we were all told to stay at home. And I’ve taken that instruction, like I do most things, with determination, will power and a huge amount… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #10

I’m Not Special – Language is Crucial

On the last day of accessible advent (I know that feels like forever ago!) I posted a comment that seemed to spark discussion. Door 24 - Language is crucial. Terms like ‘wheelchair bound’ and ‘special needs’ give a negative and incorrect message.So I decided to write about it a little more, and get the views… Continue reading I’m Not Special – Language is Crucial
