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

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

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

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #9

If we were having coffee it would again be virtually. How’s lockdown 3.0 going for all those in the UK? Not much different for me so far, as I’ve been shielding since March 2020. If we were having coffee I’d ask if you can believe it’s 2021?! I don’t know how that happened. I thought… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #9

Every day of December I added my bit to #AccessibleAdvent by posting one thing that would make my life more accessible as a wheelchair user.

Finding the Little Joys

A few weeks ago I read a post by blogging pal Amelia at You Can Always Start Now. She was enjoying the rare treat of sitting in a cafe drinking coffee. She was ‘Grabbing my wins as I can get them’. Luxuries and treats are considered different to a year ago. Back in the good… Continue reading Finding the Little Joys

Failing at Feeling Festive

It’s December, the first week of it has flown by and it feels weird. I don’t feel festive at all. I think, because I last saw the real, living world back in March, I’m a bit frozen in time. Trapped in some kind of time warp without Richard O’Brien singing along. The seasons have changed… Continue reading Failing at Feeling Festive

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
