Why I Decided on Quick-Step Laminate Flooring as a Wheelchair User

*Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Quick-Step It feels like ages ago that we moved house but we’ve only actually lived in our new bungalow a couple of months and the decorating is still all on-going. There’s currently only the hall that is complete; or so my boyfriend will tell you, I, however still need…

Accessible Days Out in Fife: StAnza and Beach Wheelchairs

*Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Visit Scotland During my week-long stay in Fife, I had three accessible days out planned; I was visiting the Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (you can read all about that here), catching a poetry performance at StAnza and venturing to St Andrews beach to test the beach wheelchairs.

Accessible Accommodation in Fife: Homelands Trust and The Rings

*Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Visit Scotland Whilst staying in Fife we got to stay in two different locations; Homelands Trust in Lundin Links and The Rings in Cupar.

To The Guy That Commented ‘I’ve Always Wanted to Try A Chick in a Wheelchair’

Since posting more pictures of me online the influx of creepy private messages and comments has soared. They either want to cure me of my disability, marry me or both, and quite frankly I’d much rather they just pissed off. I received this comment on an image of me sat in my wheelchair the other…

My Journey Finding The Right Wheelchair

Shopaholics Accessibility Guide: Rushden Lakes

On Monday I took a little trip to Rushden Lakes, Northamptonshire. It’s approximately fifteen minutes from my front door and this certainly wasn’t the first time I’d visited but this time it was for a different reason. Of course I shopped, I mean, hello, do you even know me? But I also went and scrutinised…

Decorating My Wheelchair with Festive Lights

Who’s feeling festive? This year more than the last few years (here’s why I find Christmas tough), I’m extremely excited; I can’t wait for Christmas. I’m more than in the mood to celebrate and be with family and friends. I want to beat my brother at all the games we play. I want to shower…

A Positive Message For New Wheelchair Users

A few weeks ago I shared a post called 6 Acts of Kindness I’m Grateful For As A Disabled Person; in that I talked about a few lovely things that strangers had done for me that had really helped me out and made my day easier, brighter, better. At the end of that post, Caroline from…

I’m Not ‘A Wheelchair’

Living with a disability means a whole concoction of things; yes, you actually have a disability (or a long list of them), and you find ways of adapting etc. But you also have to handle other people’s views and comments (sometimes nasty and negative) on your condition. I could no doubt write a stupidly long…
