On the last day of accessible advent (I know that feels like forever ago!) I posted a comment that seemed to spark discussion. Door 24 - Language is crucial. Terms like ‘wheelchair bound’ and ‘special needs’ give a negative and incorrect message.So I decided to write about it a little more, and get the views… Continue reading I’m Not Special – Language is Crucial
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
Disabled Access Day – Isn’t Just A Day
Inadequate access. Good access. Crazy access. Access. It’s basically why I blog, why I started writing and ranting to you almost four years ago. I wanted to raise awareness of what access is, how it can improve and the places that get it spot on. Because it’s a part of my life. Access isn’t just… Continue reading Disabled Access Day – Isn’t Just A Day
Twenty Questions With – Amanda
So it’s time for another round of Twenty Questions and this time I got to interview the lovely Amanda over at Legally Blind Bagged. A self (and everybody in a minority) advocate, Amanda knows what she thinks and wants, and isn’t afraid to say it. Which I think is a great attribute to have! As… Continue reading Twenty Questions With – Amanda
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
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
Books and Blogs – I’m a Guest
Reading and I have had an on off relationship over the years. As a young child I loved being read to, although I wasn’t that open to new books. Like most kids I loved repetition and I’m surprised my Chicken Licken book survived so long, due to either dog-eared death or cremation by my Mum.… Continue reading Books and Blogs – I’m a Guest
Nominated for the Liebster Award 2017!
Firstly just the fact that my blog has been read by people other than my friends, people that haven't been nagged to read it, is unthinkable. But that I have been chosen from the thousands of bloggers out there as a nominee for an award is mind boggling! I have been nominated by Belle and… Continue reading Nominated for the Liebster Award 2017!
Latitude 2016 – Festival of Fairytales (and my fragile neck)
Being a massive festival lover (there's probably a tiny hippy hidden within me somewhere), I ventured on my 5th consecutive trip to Latitude Festival in July this year. I've been to a few festivals, including Reading and V Festival, but Latitude is by far my favourite. It's like my happy place. It's a festival… Continue reading Latitude 2016 – Festival of Fairytales (and my fragile neck)
