Doing Disney the disabled way….

Having just returned to the UK from our holiday of a lifetime in Disneyworld, Florida, I wanted to tell you about my experience as a disabled traveller. I have Multiple Sclerosis and cannot walk very far so took my own mobility scooter with me. I have been on several short flights with my mobility scooter…

MS Society UK Blog post

Hi all, Just all a quick post to direct you to my blog post that I wrote for the MS Society UK page about the perils of shopping with MS. I tried to make it a little bit tongue-in-cheek funny, but highlighting the issues that MS sufferers have when trying to shop. You can see…

Podcast

I can’t remember if I mentioned that I did a Podcast or not. It seemed a perfect opportunity to talk about me and my experience of MS to the lovely Kate Starkey of Cheltenham Maman. But what I wasn’t prepared for was the kind feedback I had about it,  which is both testament to Kate…

Me, me, me

As the title of this blog post implies, this post is all about ME!! I tend to write about topics that arise, but I thought I would do a quick catch up on my life with you all. in case you are interested! So, what have a been up to? As most of you know,…

Is your tired the same as my tired?

It’s not a competition but….. I would like to suggest that your tired is not the same as my tired.  Bold statement? Yep it may well be, but when you say ‘I’m so tired’ spare a thought for little old MS’ers or those with a chronic illness. I am writing this from the sofa under…

Everyday life with MS…..oh and THE fall

Being appreciated….

I have a problem, I want to be wanted….well doesn’t everybody? I am giving up my time to help you and make your life easier so I hope to get that feeling of being appreciated. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want a banner saying ‘THANK YOU YOU’RE AMAZING’ or flowers or chocolate. Just a…

Summer Holiday IDEAS

With the summer holidays approaching quickly, I can already feel the fear from parents building. How are we going to entertain the children for 6 weeks? Or in my case….how am I going to get my child away from You Tube?? We are actually very lucky nowadays as there is so much going on to…

#VolunteersWeek2018

To be entirely honest with you, this week has often passed me by unnoticed, I’m not even sure that I was aware there was a national volunteers week. But this year is a little different, it has meaning to me. In the past, I have often wondered why people would give up their own time…
