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. It’s got hot again. A bit like this time last summer. It tends to happen during the… Continue reading 12 Ways To Keep Cool As A Wheelchair User

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. Yep shielding has paused, on the week that cases start to rise here in England UK. But we won’t go into… Continue reading I Went To A Graveyard So I Could Live

Taylors Of Harrogate Tea – Caffeine Free Infusions

Let’s talk tea. It’s been a while since I’ve written a tea review post. Since this one way back when. They say tea solves everything, and it’s been an odd few months so I’m pretty sure a brew review is called for. A celebration, stress, time to unwind, procrastination, deliberation and devastation. A tea is… Continue reading Taylors Of Harrogate Tea – Caffeine Free Infusions

Pandemic Project – One Stitch at a Time (#The100DayProject)

I’m a crafter. It’s something I have to do. I’m rubbish at sitting still, and because my hands are the only thing I can move, I fiddle. One of my aims for the year was to take part in #The100DayProject and what better time for it to fall than in the midst of a global… Continue reading Pandemic Project – One Stitch at a Time (#The100DayProject)

Shielding In Accessible Isolation

Warning: may contain rambling. I went out last week for the first time since March. When I say out I mean I went to the doctors for a necessary routine appointment. If I didn’t have to I wouldn’t have. It felt weird. And I came straight home. I’m still shielding (still without a sword!) and… Continue reading Shielding In Accessible Isolation

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #6

If we were having coffee I’d tell you I really really miss coffee. Yes I’m predominantly a tea drinker. But I’m a coffee shop coffee drinker and it’s coming to iced coffee season. My favourite of them all. I want to sit in a café. I don’t want anything epic, just a quiet people watching… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #6

Accessibility Problems That Make Me Abandon My Virtual Shopping Trolley – Guest Post

I’ve raved and ranted about what accessibility means to me. That’s my viewpoint, what I know and what I need. I moan about steps at store fronts, narrow isles and ridiculously small lifts. Online shopping isn’t a favourite of mine, though I do take for granted that at the click of a button I can… Continue reading Accessibility Problems That Make Me Abandon My Virtual Shopping Trolley – Guest Post

Gotta Get Through This – 9 Tips For Self Isolation

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
