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

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

12 Steps to Becoming a Confident Wheelchair User (pun intended)

I recently got a new wheelchair, well I got it almost a year ago, but things take time to get used to. You may have heard my moans. It wasn’t until I got my new wheels, a chair totally different than any I’ve had before, that I really considered the impact my wheelchair has on… Continue reading 12 Steps to Becoming a Confident Wheelchair User (pun intended)

Friends, Flu and Frustrations

January is usually the longest month of the year, feeling like it has at least 372 days in it. January 2020 has felt quite different. Yes it’s 2020. I’m still having trouble typing and saying it. Sounds like the future doesn’t it?! Twenty Twenty. Well if we are in the future, it still feels pretty… Continue reading Friends, Flu and Frustrations

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

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #3

If we were having coffee I might struggle to find a suitable table. The day after I wrote this post about chips that included a mini rant about tables, my rage got multiplied. I went into the world famous coffee chain I have a love/hate relationship with (Starbucks) to find they’d had a refurb. Some… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #3

Crafting With A Physical Disability – Finding My Thing

I’m a fidget. I’m not very good at doing nothing. If I’m watching tv I’m crafting, if I’m crafting I’m watching tv. I can even craft and read now thanks to my audiobook discovery. For somebody that can’t move very much, I’m never still. My hands have to be kept busy, and if they’re not… Continue reading Crafting With A Physical Disability – Finding My Thing
