Twenty Questions with – Fleur Perry

On my four year blogging anniversary celebration I announced that I’d be restarting the Twenty Questions series that I took a break from almost two years ago. Twenty Questions is fairly explanatory from the title. I ask fellow bloggers a set of questions that give us a little peek into their lives and personality. If… Continue reading Twenty Questions with – Fleur Perry

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

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

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

Winter Warmers

The older I get, the less a fan of winter I become. It’s 4.30pm right now, and it’s dark outside. I feel like hibernating, I mostly do. I have no intention of leaving the house after 5pm between November and March. It would have to be something amazing to get me over that threshold. If… Continue reading Winter Warmers

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

The Ups And Downs of Reading, Books, Ebooks and Audiobooks – World Book Day

I saw a lady on the bus this weekend, she was reading a book quite intently and I felt a little envious. It’s World book day tomorrow. Of all the national and world days this is one I approve of. Along with national tea day, obviously. In my life both should be celebrated everyday. In… Continue reading The Ups And Downs of Reading, Books, Ebooks and Audiobooks – World Book Day
