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

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

Gig Going – Like Anyone Else

‘Like anyone else’ Those are words I’ve longed to hear for a lifetime. That they should even be considered news in 2019 is unacceptable yet not all that shocking when you’re in my wheels. Having a disability doesn’t mean I want special treatment, equality is all I ever ask for. More than anything I wish… Continue reading Gig Going – Like Anyone Else

Christmas Cheese, Chums and Norwich Cathedral

So last December I attempted Blogmas, this year I haven’t a written thing. Sometimes you’re too busy doing life to write about it. But that can be a good thing. December came quickly and has progressed even quicker. The festivities officially began. I’m all for Christmas but it has its time. December, not November. Although… Continue reading Christmas Cheese, Chums and Norwich Cathedral

Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible

Warning: this post may contain rants. In fact it is probably one big long rant! So Muse are on tour again, my single favourite band in the world. I loved them as a teen and then saw them at V Festival 2004. Why does 2004 not sound that long ago when it’s actually almost 15… Continue reading Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible

A fellow blogger with a disability, only one quite different to my own. Following Kirsty and her blog Unseen Beauty has made me consider access in a new way.… Continue reading Twenty Questions With – Kirsty

The Last Straw?

For many people using a straw is a novelty. Something that livens up a drink in a pub, makes a cocktail more fun, allows you to drink a thick milkshake without getting a moustache. Anyone remember being a kid and purposefully trying to get a shake/Ribena moustache? No. Maybe that’s another thing from my weird… Continue reading The Last Straw?

#WheelOfFact

Way back in August of 2017 I announced that I was going to start a # on Twitter, the # would be #WheelOfFact. Every Friday I would tweet a fact that was based on my blogging subjects. Many of these were disability related facts however I lightened it up a little by interspersing the gritty… Continue reading #WheelOfFact

Accessible Toilets, Suffolk

The Apex Bury St Edmonds

Although I’ve been to Bury a few times and attended a show at The Apex, I don’t think I’d checked out this particular loo until I went to Bury Christmas Fayre this year. This accessible toilet is situated on the first floor of The Apex Theatre. A lift on the far left of the main… Continue reading The Apex Bury St Edmonds

A Jolly Good Day – On The Bus

Today (well a few days ago by the time you’re reading this) I had probably the nicest bus driver I’ve ever encountered. Odd way to start a post you might think, but for me finding nice customer service, or just meeting friendly people can make or break your day. There’s nothing more disheartening than getting… Continue reading A Jolly Good Day – On The Bus
