DSA Assesment – my second journey

Hi guys, sorry for not posting on Friday and Sunday, I’ve been a little busy. Today’s post is about DSA. DSA is the abbreviation of Disabled Student Allowance. When I first started university, I had the DSA assessment and was given a bunch of equipment. Some helpful, some not so much, but appreciated all the same. My first year went successful (on the academic part, anyway). However, in second year I noticed […]

Bad-Hair Day? Make Life Easier

Happy New Years Eve! I hope you all have had a wonderful year, I know I have. I like New Year because it marks the middle of winter, meaning spring is on the horizon. Yes! I’ve got to say, winter is my least favourite season because Cerebral Palsy and cold do not mix well. So, with spring and new year on the way, let’s talk about Personal Care. Only being […]

Christmas Wrapping – One-handed

I heard on the radio this morning that some people haven’t put their tree up or wrapped their presents yet. So I’m going to write a post about my technique of wrapping Christmas and birthday presents with only one hand. I have to be honest, I love wrapping presents! It’s my favourite Christmas Prep activity, well that and buying the presents to wrap. First advice though, before you buy your […]

Paws and Prose: My Script before Christmas

I’m really pleased with my script so far. I haven’t got to my target of five pages a day yet. Hopefully, after Christmas, I’ll be able to finish this ninety-page script. Here’s where I am now. I’m currently on page six and have found lots of books on kindle unlimited about homemade candle making but none on the 1800s candle making, so I’ve mixed the information from the book I […]

The Brief History of Candle-Making | Berg’s Book Club

Ok, this is a hard book to review because it’s very short. I mean, it ends on the kindle location, 291. I don’t know what that converts to page-wise but as the average seems to be a few thousand kindle locations for a 300page book, it takes a few minutes to read. I tell you why I read this book, I’m writing a screenplay set in the industrial revolution, the protagonist’s […]

Having travelled to and from Southampton several times for university, I have realised there are a few problems with the Cross-Country train service. The first issue I noticed was with the assisted travel service at the stations.  Those who are disabled or have injuries use it when boarding the train. As instructed…
