Accessible Advent

When I saw that @GinnyAndT was starting #AccessibleAdvent on social media I had to get involved. 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. For those of you that don’t have, or don’t follow me on social media,… Continue reading Accessible Advent

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

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)

12 Must-Dos On An Accessible Festive Family Holiday – Center Parcs Elveden

I did recently have a holiday though, not of the relaxing kind (although it’s always a bit relaxing just to… Continue reading 12 Must-Dos On An Accessible Festive Family Holiday – Center Parcs Elveden

5 Things I’m Looking Forward To This Christmas Day

I’m watching Elf while I write this. Well I started to write this, then I ended up just watching Elf. So now I’m writing this with Elf quotes and Christmas music in my head. ‘I am a cotton-headed ninny-muggins’ If only I could craft as quickly as Buddy! I do love a Christmas film, even… Continue reading 5 Things I’m Looking Forward To This Christmas Day

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

Festivities and Kindness

It’s been a bit of a week. Two firsts for me, I had the paramedics out in the middle of Asda, and I left Father Christmas hanging. Not both at the same time I might add. There are days that go by smoothly and you forget you have a disability. Well not really forget, but… Continue reading Festivities and Kindness

Best Nine of 2017

I’ve very much enjoyed my first attempt at blogmas, my ‘Sporadic Blogmas’ this year. I know I haven’t posted everyday, but I did warn you that was never going to happen. I couldn’t keep up the momentum and I’d probably run out of interesting things to say. That’s if anything I say is ‘interesting’! It… Continue reading Best Nine of 2017
