If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #5

If we were having coffee you’d probably come round mine as I’ve only left the house a few times this year. One of which was in an ambulance. At one point last month I had a running streak of 12 days inside. By that I mean I didn’t even step into the garden. It’s worrying… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #5

12 Steps to Becoming a Confident Wheelchair User (pun intended)

I recently got a new wheelchair, well I got it almost a year ago, but things take time to get used to. You may have heard my moans. It wasn’t until I got my new wheels, a chair totally different than any I’ve had before, that I really considered the impact my wheelchair has on… Continue reading 12 Steps to Becoming a Confident Wheelchair User (pun intended)

Talking Toilets With Invisibly Me – Guest Post

We are all guilty of having given the odd inward eye roll when we see someone walking out of the accessible toilets. I know I have, briefly doubting their need for using them, silently accusing them of just not wanting to queue, skipping the wait, but then stopping myself. Feeling ashamed. I’m a bad person.… Continue reading Talking Toilets With Invisibly Me – Guest Post

Aims Accomplished – Aims Not Resolutions 2020

January may not have started off well, flu really is evil. I’ve ended the month on a high though and as D-Ream sang ‘things can only get better’. Of course, the first event I properly left the house for, after leaving hospital, was afternoon tea. I couldn’t have planned it. Well I did, but you… Continue reading Aims Accomplished – Aims Not Resolutions 2020

Friends, Flu and Frustrations

January is usually the longest month of the year, feeling like it has at least 372 days in it. January 2020 has felt quite different. Yes it’s 2020. I’m still having trouble typing and saying it. Sounds like the future doesn’t it?! Twenty Twenty. Well if we are in the future, it still feels pretty… Continue reading Friends, Flu and Frustrations

If We Were Having Festive Coffee In Limbo – Life Musing #4

If we were having coffee you may need a pad and paper to take my order. I’m the kind of person you regret asking if they’d like a coffee while out, because when given the option I have the works. Plus I’m fussy and awkward and rather specific. It’s not all my fault though. I’ll… Continue reading If We Were Having Festive Coffee In Limbo – Life Musing #4

6 Ways To Get That Festive Feeling (Maybe)

I’m on my second corny made for tv Christmas film of the day, sitting beside a Christmas tree, writing Christmas cards, and I still don’t feel like next week is Christmas. I’m just not getting the festive feelings at all this year. The Tree Is UpPutting up the tree is usually the start to Christmas… Continue reading 6 Ways To Get That Festive Feeling (Maybe)

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

Winter Warmers

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. I have no intention of leaving the house after 5pm between November and March. It would have to be something amazing to get me over that threshold. If… Continue reading Winter Warmers
