Coronavirus Diary – Page 14 (Social chaos)

This week I was supposed to be on holiday in sunny Spain. Because of Covid -19 this hasn’t happened and it is not likely to happen any time soon. Even though we were not going away, me and my family decided to try and have a few days out together. Yesterday we decided to go…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 13 (Feeling slightly normal)

Today was the first day that I have had a proper day out since the end of March. I haven’t been shielding, but I haven’t had work to go to, so I have been stuck in the house for a long time. I do have a few serious medical conditions, so I have been trying…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 11 (Accessible Social Distancing)

I think it is very fair to say that the world we left before lockdown is not the same as the world that we are coming out to. Tragically so many people have been effected by Coronavirus. It is devastating to think what has happened to so many people and their loved ones. I think…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 10 (Looking to the future)

A few friends have been asking me what I am looking forward to when the lockdown is over. The truth is, just normal every day life. I want that back so much, but here is a list of things that I can’t wait to get back. Freedom – I can’t wait to be able to…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 7 (A tough week)

Week nine already?  In some ways the weeks seem to be flying by, but then when I think about the last time things felt normal, it feels like so long ago.  Things started to change slightly last week, the lockdown has eased a little.  This is really good, but also very complicated and confusing.  At…

The Trouble With Food

I’m talking about reading what the item is and what flavour it is. The main thing that I need to know when I am hungry. Online…

Finding The Right Balance

Day to day life is a challenge for everyone at times. At some point we all need help. However helping one person is not the same as helping another person. Everybody has different needs and different skills. Being visually impaired means that I need help with more things than a lot of people. But helping…

What to do now?…

When my sight deteriorated at the age of twenty three I really didn’t know what to do with myself anymore. I was a Nursery Nurse and I had been since leaving school. That was all I had ever known work wise. I had been wanting a change for a while, so in a way this…

Birthdays and Besties

Recently I wrote a post about my birthday and how it didn’t exactly go to plan. It was nobody’s fault at all, it was just one of those days where things kept happening. Luckily though I had another birthday do to fall back on. I went out for a meal with my friends. We went…
