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……!!!
What more can I say..........? Well, knowing me as you do by now, quite a lot actually! So the hen nights were over, the "Bottomless Prosecco Brunch" was a triumph; I had a Police escort around Cardiff Bay, the wheelchair karaoke was incredible and all the 'oooh, look at me, I'm a hen' stuff was… Continue reading It was a bloody brilliant day……!
The dreaded brown envelope arrived this morning, it sat there silently, nonchalantly even and so so still. It tried to adopt a charming demeanour as if it was exactly the same thing as the Iceland flyer, the Tesco Clubcard vouchers and the handful of junk mail lying there with it. Its corner poked out as… Continue reading The dreaded brown envelope is here…..
"I'm too old for this malarkey" I happened to say out loud whilst discussing wedding plans (which I tend to do quite often these days!) The assorted people around me, friends, sisters and daughter loudly disagreed so it was decided that I was to be taken out by said friends over the weekend for my… Continue reading Who wants a game of “BillyWingo”…..!!!
This is EXACTLY how I'm feeling tonight, I am imprisoned by this pain and this darkness, I can't even get into my car by myself to run away. The whole 'I need someone to help me with every bloody thing' is getting me down - like there's a mountain of rocks weighing down on me.… Continue reading Not having a good night……
