Friends and Fireworks on a Rooftop

I’ve never much celebrated Guy Fawkes night. As a kid I remember standing (sitting) around waiting no end of time for something that lasted just a few minutes.  That was when there were bonfires, do these things still have bonfires or is that another thing health and safety stole? Anyway I’d be freezing my driving… Continue reading Friends and Fireworks on a Rooftop

Chocolate High Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

So I went to another afternoon tea. Kind of. The Assembly House Norwich were putting on a one evening only ‘Chocolat High Tea’, so obviously I had to go. I have spelt that right, the missing e isn’t missing. This high tea was chocolate themed to complement the movie Chocolat that would be showing after… Continue reading Chocolate High Tea – The Assembly House Norwich

11 Perks Of Being A Wheelchair User

I feel I’ve been ranting to you a lot lately. There’s been a fair few negatives in life with accessibility to the cinema and Latitude Festival being a bit of a downer. It’s not all doom and gloom though. So I thought this week I would share with you some of the upsides to having… Continue reading 11 Perks Of Being A Wheelchair User

An Afternoon Tea Of Wizardry – The Assembly House Norwich

The Assembly House in Norwich is one of my favourite places to go for afternoon tea. In fact it’s probably one of my favourite places to go for a brew or lunch or cake. It’s a grand Georgian building in the middle of a busy city. It feels like another world. It’s beautiful gardens, elegant… Continue reading An Afternoon Tea Of Wizardry – The Assembly House Norwich

Cool Lifts and Cardigans

Hannah was late again (see I told you that would be the first line Hannah!). If you’ve been following my adventures for a while you’ll know Hannah is that late friend. We all have one. And if you think you don’t, then it’s probably you. We’ll forgive her this time, again, as it was her… Continue reading Cool Lifts and Cardigans

Party Like It’s Your Birthday

I knew something was going on. I didn’t know what, but I had my suspicions. It’s my birthday today. I’m 33. THIRTY THREE. When that happened I do not know, but I still feel in my twenties. Not my teens, I don’t want those again. So on Saturday, last Saturday, I was going bowling with… Continue reading Party Like It’s Your Birthday

Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

I’d seen work being done on a building on St Gregory’s Alley a few months back while I was eating chips from Grosvenor Fish Bar. Actually it must have been quite a few months ago, as on this occasion I believe I was eating outdoors, which never happens as much as I’d like due to… Continue reading Courgette Cakes and Steampunk Coffee – Alchemista Norwich

Not Just Any Afternoon Tea – M&S Norwich

As I haven’t written about tea for a while and it’s been a bit of quiet news week here at Wheelescapades, I thought I’d tell you about a spontaneous afternoon tea I had with a friend a while back. This was not just any afternoon tea, this was an M&S afternoon tea (I know, sorry).… Continue reading Not Just Any Afternoon Tea – M&S Norwich

Christmas Balls

I missed it last year and I was determined not to let it pass me by this time. I mean it looked amazing and bizarre at the same time. I was intrigued and disgusted, curious and apprehensive. I’ve waited a whole year for it to return, just so I can say I had it, I… Continue reading Christmas Balls

Battle and a brew – Thirsty Meeples

I have to tell you about an amazing place I discovered in Oxford recently. I don’t know how I’ve not told you about it sooner really, but sometimes life stuff gets in the way. I’ve been a bit slack on the ol’ blog writing lately. I know I’ve had a few 'guests’ here and have… Continue reading Battle and a brew – Thirsty Meeples
