12 Ways To Keep Cool As A Wheelchair User

Wheelchair users can be cool dudes, but that’s not what this post is about. I’m probably not the best to give advice for that as I sit here doing crochet and drinking a brew from my china cup. It’s got hot again. A bit like this time last summer. It tends to happen during the… Continue reading 12 Ways To Keep Cool As A Wheelchair User

Taylors Of Harrogate Tea – Caffeine Free Infusions

Let’s talk tea. It’s been a while since I’ve written a tea review post. Since this one way back when. They say tea solves everything, and it’s been an odd few months so I’m pretty sure a brew review is called for. A celebration, stress, time to unwind, procrastination, deliberation and devastation. A tea is… Continue reading Taylors Of Harrogate Tea – Caffeine Free Infusions

It’s Summer

It’s hot. Really, very, hot. I’m not a fan of moaning but it’s in our nature isn’t it, being British. We always need to have something to whine about. We’re not very good at dealing with it either, are we, weather I mean. Of most kinds. It’s too cold, too wet, too hot. There’s snow… Continue reading It’s Summer

Pickles, Bugs and Turkish Delight – Peter Beales Rose Gardens

Why is it we travel miles to visit places but never take advantage of what’s on our doorstep? Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think it is. We talk about beautiful views when on holiday, there are plenty right around us though. It was due to be a sunny Saturday (it wasn’t all that… Continue reading Pickles, Bugs and Turkish Delight – Peter Beales Rose Gardens

Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

You’ll know by now I love a festival, and Latitude Festival is by far my favourite. It’s magical, eclectic, arty and fairly civilised. I attended again this year for the 7th year in a row. I’ve raved about (in written form, I am not much of a raver in the other sense) Latitude Festival before… Continue reading Bums and Bubble Tea – Latitude Festival

Summer Holidays and Cinema Let Downs

Schools out (17 years ago for me), it’s the summer holidays. You’ve probably noticed the rise in little people running around. During the summer holidays I like to spend some time with my nieces, also we are a source of childcare. Just because school stops it doesn’t mean other jobs do too. As I’ve said… Continue reading Summer Holidays and Cinema Let Downs

Disneyland Paris In A Wheelchair (part two) – I’m Here

So I’ve arrived in Disneyland Paris! Read the story so far and find out how I got here... Due to using Disney Express we didn’t need to offload at the hotel, so straight to Disneyland Park we headed! Our first stop was City Hall. If you have a disability you can get something called a… Continue reading Disneyland Paris In A Wheelchair (part two) – I’m Here

The High Life – Rooftop Gardens

You may have read my blog a few weeks ago titled Burgers and Booths? Well this restaurant I visited only days before was a totally different experience. I'd been hearing about Rooftop Gardens for a while. There was a new restaurant open in town (Norwich) and rumour was it was on a roof, in England,… Continue reading The High Life – Rooftop Gardens

Jungle Life – Urban Jungle

Some of best discoveries can be found in the city you thought you knew.   After seeing photos on my Facebook news feed of friends eating cake and drinking tea amongst exotic plants and trees I was becoming envious, I figured they must be on holiday in some tropical paradise. But oh no, after closer… Continue reading Jungle Life – Urban Jungle
