Oh Yes, The Accessible Entrance is Round The Back – Behind the Bins

Recently I went to Bill’s in Leeds to celebrate dad’s birthday (Happy birthday dad if you’ve google searched my blog and having a cheeky read). It was lovely and the food was divine. When I go to Bill’s and many other places I have to use the ‘entrance’ at the back which is step free, […]

Recovering | Completing a Bucket List Goal

Gem on Train

So I’ve been very quiet recently. That’s because of one reason. People who know me on social media will be SICK of me talking about this but this is one more online outlet and then I promise I’ll stop soon. But this week I ticked something off my bucket list and I’m still overwhelmed – […]

Isn’t She Brave? | Sympathy and Disability

It was a Friday, my day off. Lovely. I had just been for a pub lunch with my friend. I’d eaten way too much and had a pint of coke so I was feeling a little bit giddy. On our way back I was laughing at everything. You know one of those moods. The sun […]

I Know Disabled People Too!

Picture the scene, I’ve just done a day of training with Enhance the UK. I’m buzzin’ but looking forward to riding the train home. The train is only 25 minutes long so just enough time to relax before I meet my mum back at the station. When I’m on the train I’m met with three […]

Disability and Politics | My View

I know, I’ve said the P word. Sorry. If you’re sick of it, I’m sorry about that too. But the older I get, the more I realise why I have to learn about it all. I can’t afford not to. Every part of my life has a price tag, the care I receive, how I […]

What I Wear in a Wheelchair | Hot Weather Alert

I realise that I talk about the weather a lot. I moan when it’s cold because my bones ache, I moan when it’s warm because I get TOO hot. I know I know. We all do it don’t we… Well, if you don’t live in England, it’s been actually pretty warm recently and I have […]

Oh Stop Moaning

The title is aimed at me, don’t panic. Basically. I’ve drafted SIX blog posts in the last week but I just can’t get into the flow. This week has been unusually filled with stereotypical frustrating things that have happened. In a typical week I probably get one or two which are easy to talk about […]
