    A Surreal yet Phenomenal Whirlwind

    So, do you remember that New Year’s Resolution list I’ve been living my life by for the past ten months? Well, I think I’ve nailed it in two weeks flat. There’s a lot I can’t publicise yet, but bits I can.   Read More...

    Giraffes, Bus Stops and Idiots

    So, it’s a Wednesday afternoon (Thursday evening by the time you read this), it’s raining in the same way that it has done all week and I have nothing interesting to say. Since we last spoke, I have written and replied to emails, sorted out my abysmal finances, and attended meetings. I mean, the meetings were productive, but there’s nothing to report on just yet.   Read More...

    Gratitude

    As many of you know, last Sunday I completed a mile and a half sponsored walk for Lincoln Drill Hall and Lincoln Samaritans. I’d spent months training to get my dysfunctional, uncooperative limbs ready for the challenge and I’d be lying if I said it all went to plan; it didn’t. It took me five hours which included one very pivotal moment when I thought my life was going to come to an abrupt halt.   Read More...

    One of a Kind

    Hey there, Written Wheelies, I survived, I’m in one piece, and have such an epic tale to tell you. As some of you may be aware, last week was the annual occurrence of the family holiday. Generally, this consists of lavish pub crawls combined with really early mornings as we are awoken by the song of Kenneth, and at some point, handbags at dawn.   Read More...

    The Meaning of Life: It's as Clear as Mud

    Dear Jo – our resident writer in a wheelchair,My sincerest apologies for the delay in response. You were right to say that we had a backlog of things to do and considering Trevor has no idea how to turn a computer on, let alone retrieve things from the Cloud, I am his secretary, general dog’s body, and better half.You, like many before you and probably many after you, wrote to Trevor asking him to explain the meaning of life. The truth is, he doesn’t really know.   Read More...

    The Meaning of Life

    Dear Trevor – can I call you that? You have so many names within different faiths, and in all honesty, God seems a tad formal.I'm writing to you because I asked my Written Wheelies what they wanted me to blog about, and one of them suggested, “the meaning of life”. I’m not too sure I can do the topic justice, so I thought I’d come to you.   Read More...

    Giraffes are my Favourite Things

    The fun began at 6am on Tuesday morning, when I got up ready and raring for Dad to be his usual two hours early. I showered in the knowledge that washing without equipment whilst I was away would be somewhat tricky, and I’d probably return slightly more wiffy than what anyone would want. I caught up on Friends with the sad awareness that proper telly, aka Netflix, would not be blissfully enjoyed for three whole days.   Read More...
