You’re Always so Happy!

I was in Sainsburys once and a lady at the till who I recognise waves. Naturally I wave back. I shout hello and we have a mutual nod, as you do. Then she suddenly shouts “you’re always happy aren’t you love, always got a lovely smile on your face!” pleased...

Accessorise in Spring Time

Ah Spring, oh how it’s good to see y’again. Well I like spring because it’s finally getting a bit sunny again and people stop telling me to put my coat on. If you don’t know what I’m on about check out my autumn blog from last year. One thing that...

The D Word…

The internet really is a wonderful thing. Especially when it brings communities together and allows people to share empowering messages about topics they possibly have never thought about before.

Every Little Helps

Don’t worry – this isn’t an ad for a well known supermarket. This time of year there’s a lot of shopping going on. People are #PANICKING. Shopping can be a hard task for me as a disabled person anyway like traveling to the actual shops etc but add in...
