My Year in Books – 2020 (part 2)

Its been well over a year since I wrote one of my usual reviews, the type this blog was established for. The day to day life of a person on wheels. This past year my ramblings have turned into the day to day life of a frustrated shielder, plodding along. It was that or take… Continue reading My Year in Books – 2020 (part 2)

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #9

If we were having coffee it would again be virtually. How’s lockdown 3.0 going for all those in the UK? Not much different for me so far, as I’ve been shielding since March 2020. If we were having coffee I’d ask if you can believe it’s 2021?! I don’t know how that happened. I thought… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #9

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

A List of Things I Weirdly Miss

I shared a post on social media last week that I’d written two years ago, when I’d been enraged at the inequality of booking concert tickets as a wheelchair user, which spurred a rant called Booking Accessible Tickets – Mission (almost) Impossible. Rereading this post got me thinking. I actually miss this stuff. I don’t… Continue reading A List of Things I Weirdly Miss

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #7

If we were having coffee it would probably be in a garden. I’ve been doing a bit of that lately. What will happen when winter hits? I’m still shielding, or as close to shielding is possible when you rely on close contact with others to stay alive. Isn’t it ironic.... those that actually want to… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #7

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

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
