    >101 in 1001 – Item 43…

    > Sort the black hole known as “under the bed” …has been completed. Mum came round this morning and helped me to blitz my bedroom including under there and it looks so much better. And two others are almost done but for stumbling blocks. I’m pleased, I wanted at least one thing ticked off before the end of the year so that I could say I’d written the list and completed at least one goal in 2008.

    >A Review of 2008 in Survey Form

    >For the 5th Year Running: –  A Review of 2008 in Survey Form 1. What did you do in 2008 that you’d never done before? Sailed competitively.  Took a creative writing course 2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Honestly I can’t remember.  If I made any I suspect they were to complete more of my 101 in 1001 (which I did) and to lose weight (fail!).  I may make more. 3. Did anyone close to you give birth? No   4. Did anyone close to you die? No! (you have no idea how pleased I am with that answer, having…

    >Because it made me smile…

    >God and the angel Gabriel were at the water cooler one day. After chit-chatting about spreadsheets, schedules and last night’s episode of ER, God said: ‘I just created a 24-hour period of alternating light and darkness.’ Gabriel replied, ‘Wow – what are you going to do now?’ God retorted, ‘I think I’ll call it a day.’ All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Relaxing, Recuperating and Odd Bits

    >I’ve had some viral buggy thing going on pretty much since last Tuesday.  Not helped by ill and panicking a bit-ness on Tuesday and I’m still ill and I have a new ish carer I’m not sure of stressing on Friday. But I seem to be pretty much better today (although lets not say that too loudly).  And I had a carer I’ve known for years but not seen in a long time today.  She’s only ever been a cover carer for me.  Which was nice because I know her and I’m totally comfortable with her meaning there I knew there should be no drama.  And there wasn’t, something I’d…

    >It’s the small things

    >I was reminded earlier today how much of a difference who does something can make. That’s definitely very true when it comes to carers and the like but what  actually made me think of it was the contractors from my housing who do all the repairs. About six weeks ago they sent someone out to unblock the drain for my shower.  it was taking forever to drain and as it’s a wheel in shower that wasn’t great (although I don’t wheel in I have a shower seat and leave my chair a bit away from it, walking a few steps to get to it).   The drain cover was screwed…

    >Got more Rabbit than Sainsburys…

    > Was just surfing old old old blog entries to find my end of year meme that I always do.  And I was reminded of this song:Chaz n Dave – Rabbit rabbit x 20 you got a beautiful chin,you got beautiful skin,you got a beautiful face,you got taste,you got beautiful eyes,you got beautiful thighs,you got a lot whout a doubt,but I think bout blowin you out, coz you wont stop talkin,why dont you give it a rest?,you got more rabbit than sainsburys,it’s time you got it off your chest,now you is just the kinda girl to break my heart in two,I knew right off when I first clapped my eyes…

    >101 in 1001 v2.0

    >Tomorrow will be day 1 of my new (second) 101 in 1001 project.   Day 1001 will be Monday September 12th 2011.   The new list is now online and can be found either by click on the link at the top or by clicking here. With the exception of item 101, the items are listed in the order I thought of them.  I haven’t been as farfetched with this list as opposed to the old one but I stil like it.  This list was harder to write too.   And the two unspoken goals on this list are to blog more about the things as I do/complete/try them than…

    >101 in 1001- COMPLETE

    >Today is day 1001 and the project is complete. Over the course of the project I completed 51 of the 101 goals!  Which I am beyond pleased with.   I know that a lot of people go into this determined to complete every goal.  And that would have been nice.  But I set myself goals that would stretch me, be fun, be impossible, form habits and be things I’ve always wanted to do.  I knew going in that realistically completing them all would not be something that happened. The following is the list of the goals which were completed.  Several others I tried and failed.  Those I haven’t marked but…

    >Amongst all the drama I forgot to title this post!

    >Soooo much drama today it’s unreal. And it’s left me with no energy.  So all in I’ve gone from really excited about some possibilities to kinda low. The short version: Fell out of my wheelchair, bruised my bum and bashed my shoulder.  Pretty sore as a result.  Situation normal. Mentioned it in passing to my carer and whilst falls might be just one of those things to me she then spent the hour she was here trying to convince me to go see a doctor.   And when she realised I was having none of that switched to trying to convince me to let her get a doctor out to…
