Week 33

Week 33

Week 33 has been reasonably quiet.

I got home from Jack Up The 8o’s quite late on Sunday evening. I was shattered, sore and sunbunrt!

I spent Monday just resting – I didn’t have much choice as my knees were agony and I could barely bend […]

I am such a bad blogger!

I am soooooooo bad! I haven’t blogged in ages so I’m going to get right on with it!

Week 29

Week 29 was my good deed week and other than giving Isis a haircut, not much else happened – it was a good week though! I’ve started a new experiment; I’m keeping […]

Week 27


Week 27

Week 27 was pretty quiet.

We travelled home from Woolfest on Sunday, it was a bit of a nightmare really – the traffic was terrible and it took about 10 hours from Cumbria to Romsey!

We were all shattered once we got here.


I won!

Remember way back in March when the DWP decided I was no longer entitled to DLA?

I was absolutely furious. They had sent someone round to assess me – she was very nice and very sympathetic and even recommended I go to Occupational Therapy for aids around the home.


I feel a bit pathetic really asking for hugs when some of you are dealing with cancer, death and other things worse than me.

But, I need to whinge a bit.

You may or may not know I got diagnosed with plantar fasciitis (policeman’s heel) a few weeks ago […]

Oh dear….

It appears I’ve been a bit slack with the updating of my blog.

I was just sorting out my Photobucket account and I realised I haven’t posted anything since Week 15!

So, let’s start with Week 16!!

Week 16

On the Sunday, I bleached J’s hair, then she […]


I went to see my GP this week, we had a good chat but didnt really get anything done as I’m waiting for my Spinal Clinic appointment at the hospital.

He did a few touch-your-nose & follow-my-finger tests and decided I don’t have a neurological condition – I guess that’s something.



I’ve finally had a response to the email I sent to the MP regarding disabled access at Romsey train station:

‘Dear Sam

Thank you for your email to Caroline Nokes and I apologise for the delay in replying. Caroline is currently sitting on a Bill Committee and has asked me to […]

What’s in my bag….er rollator seat

Due to the fact that it’s not easy to carry a bag while using my rollator; I have turned the seat underneath into my handbag!


From left to right: My disability badge, my iPad mini, my makeup case (containing: makeup, nail file, medication, deodorant, hand cleanser & cream, a […]

Letter to my MP

I don’t usually bother writing to MP’s – I consider them a waste of space and they don’t seem to do much, but Mum suggested I should so I just emailed this letter:

’Dear Ms Nokes,

I moved to Romsey six months ago from the Isle of Wight. It’s a fantastic […]
