So my PA booked two weeks off, usually this would be a big problem for me as I’d miss out on getting up and going out, in the summer it’s even worse as not being able to get out in the sunshine sends me into very low moods. This time was different though, I’ve managed[…]
The weather didn’t look too bad on Tuesday so I decided to risk visiting Dyrham Park, I try to do shorter visits to places in the colder months as wrapping up in the many layers necessary restricts my movement and sitting in a wheelchair can become very uncomfortable when you are so bundled up.
So the year didn’t start well, a lack of care staff, being treated badly by people I thought were friends or at least cared about me, loss and things generally going badly in 2015. I made a decision to take control of things, sort out my health as best as possible
I couldn’t waste the sunshine so decided to visit Bourton-on-the-Water and Birdland today, the warmth of the sun was lovely to feel on my skin even if the air wasn’t that warm when in the shade. It was a nice relaxing day and I didn’t worry too much about taking pictures
I visited Kenilworth Castle again on Tuesday, the weather wasn’t the warmest but I managed to get a few decent pictures.
I have been struggling a bit with being in my chair, my chest has been achey when first getting up and I’ve been having to recline after a while as I come over feeling nauseous and like I may pass out, I needed this trip to prove to myself that I was still capable of going further than the local shops and that this wasn’t the symptom of something more serious.
Another Sunday and my weekly chance to get out of bed and visit somewhere, this time I decided on Birmingham Thinktank science museum.
Another Sunday outing, this time to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, It was my first time up in the chair since before Christmas and I knew an hours journey each way plus time in the museum was probably pushing it but with the current care situation I have to make the most of any chance I get to go out.
It was cold today and I was worn out from going to a thing in town yesterday with a friend and her little boy, but it was also my last chance to get out until January as care is short, my physical health is also suffering from not being able to exercise my muscles and[…]
Hullavington – Audrey Kent My Great Aunt, Audrey Kent, used to live in a lovely little village called Hullavington, she was the village nurse and delivered a lot of the children there, they called her simply Nurse Kent, she never married, being a nurse meant giving up on having a family and although she fell in[…]
So this past week has turned out to be pretty good, last weekend my best friend visited from Manchester, on Friday we all went to see X-Men Days of future past, a fun movie and the first I’ve watched in 3D at a cinema and also the first time I’ve taken my Goddaughter since 2000 when we saw
