>So you had a BADD day

>I’ve got loads and loads to blog about and I’m definitely going to catch up tomorrow.  But I just wanted to remind people that Blogging Against Disablism Day 2010 is this Saturday.  Please pass the message on and take part if you want to/can.  It’s really important and it’s usually interesting and good fun. Today […]


>The Disability Blog Carnival is coming soon.  And it’s theme this time is “balance” The obvious thing as a CP-er with a topic of balance would be to talk about walking and standing and transferring and the fact that I have very poor balance.  I can stand unsupported but only for a few seconds and […]

>Blogging Against Disablism Day 2010 is coming!

>Blogging Against Disablism Day 2010 (the 5th one! Wow!) will be 1st May 2010. The Goldfish is hosting as usual and details can be found here. I could say something amazing and fantastic and wonderful about BADD and what it is and what we try to do.  But I think The Goldfish has said it […]

>Mostly Good

>I’m up roughly 2lb it seems (just weighed a few minutes ago). Which I’m fine with seeing it’s the first time I’ve weighed since Easter, I’ve not had a working oven for 10 days and I’ve been ill for almost a week.  The last two combine together to mean Emma eating a lot of takeaway. […]

>General 101 in 1001 Update

>I was just looking at my 101 in 1001 to see a specific goal was on there and it isn’t. I knew I had a very specific related goal on there but I suddenly wondered if I’d put the more general variant on there too.  Which is a shame because I could tick the more […]

>See Also: Last Words, Famous

>My oven broke last week.  It’s finally getting looked at on Wednesday.  So I wangled an invite to my parents for tea both nights this weekend.  As I am full of cold I was offered a plate brought down to me but I said I would go there. My mum greeted me with “I’d kiss […]

>Bits of news

>A few quick bits of news. A project I’ve been taking part in for the past several weeks and not really enjoying as much as I hoped ended (for me at least) today. I’d thought about dropping out so the fact I finished it is great. I am on page 31 of Script Frenzy but […]

>Veteran – Gavin Smith

>I recently received a review copy of Veteran by Gavin Smith from WHSmith.co.uk.  I found that very exciting because it doesn’t actually come out until June and so my copy has “uncorrected manuscript proof” and other things all over it that they usually don’t  Plus, it’s very cool to know that I’ve just spent a […]
