Accessible Advent

When I saw that @GinnyAndT was starting #AccessibleAdvent on social media I had to get involved. Every day of December I added my bit to #AccessibleAdvent by posting one thing that would make my life more accessible as a wheelchair user. For those of you that don’t have, or don’t follow me on social media,… Continue reading Accessible Advent

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

9 Winter Warmers For Dealing With The Cold

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 (Edit: Even more so now we are on lockdown 2.0 of a pandemic that's been happening for going on a year now). I have no intention of leaving… Continue reading 9 Winter Warmers For Dealing With The Cold

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

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)
