Day Out at Bletchley Park: Code Cracking and Computer Fun

Bletchley Park

After a long car drive to Bletchley Park, the first vehicle we came across was actually a vintage motorcycle.  The codes that were brought to the code cracking experts Bletchley park on moterbikes like this one were delivered by women during world war two. The McAfee exhibit in the museum was all about codes and computers today.  It was quite scary to read just how much information is stored about each of us online. There were some cool interactive elements in the exhibit too.  Our nephews Greg and Cody had fun playing with the interactive touchscreens. We learnt so much […]

REAL Natural Beauty: Love Your Hair Banish Your Grey – Hair Colour

2014-08-16 10.00.58

  I LOVE natural beauty.  My body is so full of chemicals (medication) that I feel it’s only right to limit the amount of chemicals I put ON my body. Back in May, I had a run in with some very UNnatural hair colour, which was branded to make it seem gentle and nourishing (read full post here), but on closer inspection I found it was full of all sorts of nasty stuff.  I vowed it would be the last time put something on my hair or body without reading the label. My search for natural hair care was very […]

From the little sucker featuring two Me To You bears in love, holding a Just Married sign, which we displayed proudly in […]

Days Out: Watching X Factor Live at Wembley Arena, London – Wheelchair Access, Wonderful Surprises and Waiting Around


A recent trip to London brought much headache inducing stress, as detailed in this blog post.  We did however manage, thanks to a quick nap and a vat of rescue remedy to get some things accomplished on this trip, one of which was visiting Wembley Arena in London to watch X Factor being filmed. I know some people can’t do enough to get away from news of X Factor when it is on the TV, but I’m guessing that if you have read this far you are not one of them.  I will therefore make a pretty unsurprising confession – […]

I Go Driving in My Car: Personal Independence – getting out and about with an adapted vehicle #disability

2014-06-22 12.51.27

I write an awful lot about getting around, and the problems with getting around, especially when it comes to public transport.  Pavements are craggy and my wheelchair is on it’s last legs (pun intended), so getting out of the house can pose a problem.  It would be so easy to just stay indoors, especially with the horrid weather we’ve had of late (seriously, where is summer?) The thing is though, I don’t want to stay in.  I want to get out and feel the wind in my hair.  I want to participate in life, and live it to the full. […]
