Wow - Can you believe that it's three years since I published my first blog post? Yep, on this very day in 2016, I entered the wonderful world of blogging! These three years have been absolutely amazing in regards to my blog.

I haven't got much to say about this, but I just wanted to tell you all.

To celebrate my third Blogiversary, I'm going to share what I view to be my  best blog posts....

Hey everyone, it’s time for another addition of the Portsmouth Dockyard series…  I have a confession to make - I made a mistake in my last blog post about the Dockyard; I accidently said that I went to the Jutland Gallery, when in fact it was called the Victory Gallery. So, sorry about that. I edited the post on my website, but unfortunately, I won’t be able to edit Social Media previews.

Anyway, l...

I've always felt a little awkward when someone calls me "inspirational" or a "hero". It makes me feel un-easy. Yes, it is a lovely compliment, but am I really? I only live my life as an individual, raising awareness of various issues. Anyone can do that, right? I am never sure whether to accept these compliments, or say actually, I'm not because I'm just a human being, who is passionate about help...

Welcome back to my Portsmouth Dockyard series. On Friday the 14th of December 2018, I went to the Victory Gallery (I was going to go to the M33, but it doesn’t open until 11:30 AM), so instead of hanging around waiting for it to open, I decided to go to Victory Gallery.

Inside the gallery, there was lots of space for people with mobility aids, such as wheelchairs and walking frames. The gallery is...

Wow, another year! Where has the time gone? I'll be 25 before I know it! I hope everyone had a brilliant New Year, did you watch the New Year countdown on telly? We always watch it. I usually enjoy it, but this year it was different... This time the program was presented by "Madness". To be honest, I didn't think it was anything special this year. I don't know whether it was because I'm not a huge...

On the 29th of December (yesterday), my dad introduced me to silicone straws. He had been talking about getting some for me to try for ages. I have to say, I was quite surprised about how well they worked for me - I was also glad that I can use them because of all the hoo-ha about plastic straws and the environment, etc. As I'm sure you are aware, at this moment, I and many other people with disab...

Do you like your hand? If you want to keep it, may I suggest that you don't pat me on the head? Don't ask me why, but all throughout my life, I have had random people patting me on the head, and it has always annoyed the hell out of me. Maybe it's because I am sat in my wheelchair, and my head is at 'patting height'. Or is it because they think I'm not fully aware of what's going on? Whatever excu...

Welcome back (welcome all new viewers). Over the next few months, I'm going to write a series of blog posts about the accessibility at the Portsmouth Dockyard, I will write one for every attraction I visit. On the 16th of November, I looked at the accessibility on the HMS Victory ship, and around the Dockyard and this is my review below...

The people who work there were very kind and let me in to a...

Isn't it annoying when you find something you would like because you think it looks good or it will make your life easier, but it's not accessible to you? I get this all the time because of one small thing - I don't have a mobile phone. Shock horror! I know that this may be difficult to comprehend for some, but not everyone has a mobile phone! Wake up! Some of us aren't able to use mobile phones,...
