Sitting here watching all the last four episodes of this series of Doctor Foster (some call it ‘binge watching’ but the word binge just makes me feel bad about the amount of biscuits I've eaten whilst watching it) I'm truly strung out after those last episodes. Those two parents torturing each other time and time… Continue reading It’s been a week of binging, graphing and reflecting……..
I'm sat here, just back from holidays trying to get my head around what to do with all our stuff, catching up on the TV programmes I've missed. Watching BBC’s programme ‘Ambulance’, there's a scene where the paramedics are trying their best to help a homeless young man. He walks out of the hospital and they… Continue reading One moment in time…..
As the househunting continued, we had to organise a solicitor to do the conveyancing. As they are based in the next town to us, where I used to live, we thought we'd make an afternoon of it. The sun was shining, the weather was good and we found a Blue Badge parking spot straight away… Continue reading A bad day, access-wise!!
Talk about from one extreme to the other, after a week of virtually doing nothing came a week when I did TWO trips out of the house! Yes, TWO whole trips, one fun and one scary and one of them without the darling P! The first was a trip with my choir 'Con Voce' to… Continue reading A trip away on my own? Really? Could it be possible…..??
Whilst taking a break from dreamhouse hunting, I thought I'd see what was going on in the world. I'd read that Scope, one of the leading disability charities had produced the results of a survey about the attitudes towards disabled people so this is the article I wrote for them......... With the announcement that… Continue reading Attitudes haven’t changed? What a surprise……..!!!
Well, this week was interesting to say the least! After my little break, supposedly to recharge the batteries and take a step off the house hunting roundabout, my new friend Norman the cat and I decided I wanted to change tack - “Lets go look at different areas” says I, “ok” says P with a… Continue reading OMG, this house hunting is proving tricky…..!
After what seems like weeks of bungalow hunting, we retreated this week to the blissful quietness of the caravan. I was definitely in the mood for some one level living. We had seen small bungalows, (too small), large ones (too expensive), medium sized ones (right price but weird area) and even bungalows with steps! Steps… Continue reading That’s it, time to slow down……
Looking at Facebook this morning, reading all the posts from my friends who have jetted off last minute to sunnier climes, I had a sudden urge to fly away and chase the sun. Mind you, after spending some time in our caravan in Mid Wales watching the rain hammer down, I'm not surprised I wanted… Continue reading A Blissful Week of Adapted Outings…..
What a week! Visitors, appointments and lots of those official looking envelopes, oh dear…… The initial part was pure joy; a long awaited visit to the Principality Stadium for the Speedway GP. Now then, I'm not the most obvious speedway fan but having been introduced to it a few years ago by P, I've grown to… Continue reading Boys, toys and joys……..
“Do you want to be on a new Channel 4 property show…..??” Ummmmm...... "Its called Best of Both Worlds?" Ooooooooo......... "It's hosted by Lucy Alexander......!" "Hell yes” was my swift reply “But how?………..?” As with most of my ‘incidents’, this one began with me being nosey.… Continue reading I’ve been on the telly……!!!
