    Disability Awareness

    What an interesting week it’s been. First, a festival, then the Edinburgh Fringe, then a day of Masquerade Ball promotion. As much as this week has been varied, there was definitely a common theme of disability awareness.You know what it’s like when you go to a festival.   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...

    Living with a Disability

    Yesterday, my friend and I were invited to talk to Health and Social Care students about what it’s like living with a disability. This is a topic we could both talk about for hours, boring everyone to death in the process, so the students pre-planned their questions for us. They were a lovely bunch of people and they all seemed genuinely interested in what we had to say, but you what it’s like when you get chatting, we ran out of time.   Read More...

    Stream of Consciousness

    Happy Sunday, Written Wheelies – I hope your week has been fabulous. I thought I’d give you an overview of my week’s experiences and the conclusions I’ve drawn from them. You might agree with me, you might not, but you’re about to enter my brain which consists of jumbled thoughts and random stories.   Read More...

    Another Interesting and Quirky Story

    On Sunday, I joined 143 hopefuls who were auditioning to be a presenter on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. The advert for Be the One said the ideal candidate should be ‘full of energy, personality and have an authentic voice of Lincolnshire’. The audition process was simple; turn up, sign up, and be able to tell an interesting story that lasts 60 seconds.   Read More...
