    >Thursday Thirteen: Thirteen People Who Have Influenced My Life

    > Thirteen People Who Have Influenced My Life1….Maryse. I first met Maryse when I was about nine. She is older than either of my parents and is a physiotherapist. She made physio fun for me and was the first physio I didn’t fight going to see. I used to look forward to it. As I grew older I came to be able to talk to her about anything and she became more than a physio to me. I will always remember that when I’d been seeing her for a year she invited me over to her house to celebrate and we had home made pizza that her husband made and…

    >disabled people: available for sale on ebay!

    > I just had to laugh and laugh at something I saw on the net…. I saw something that had part of a poem which includes the line “I am a disabled person” and being how I love poems I went to Yahoo! and searched on that line… Result number seven on the list was Shop for Disabled Person on Ebay So there you have it, if you want your very own cripple you’ve just gotta head to ebay! The ebay song says it best I think All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Monday Memories: First Day At Uni

    > Monday Memories: Did I ever tell you about MY FIRST DAY AT UNIVERSITY ? I really, really wanted to go to university and I was excited to go but i was also apprehensive. I’d never lived away from my family before and I was moving three hours away from them to a city where i didn’t know anyone or anything. I woke up that morning and I was soooooo nervous I was sick. And then I cried and cried as it was time to get in the car which was crammed full to the gills with every little thing I could possibly want or need. My sister who would…

    >CP History Radio Show

    >I’m listening to a radio show that was broadcast on Radio 4 (part of BBC Radio) last night. This is what the website has to say about it: Speaking for Ourselves: Geoff Adams-Spink explores a remarkable oral history project about disability, run by the charity Scope. A heart breaking and inspirational history of the unheard. Parts of it are very interesting and I think it’s worth listening too… but there are parts which I personally have found irritating and/or annoying and that possibly some might find upsetting.  History is something that really interests me and disability history which this is interests me more…I think the first woman who speaks (the…

    >The Friday Five for the first time ever!

    >Meme time because there’s no one interesting to talk to online The Friday Five1. Do you like chicken? I love it. Absolutely favourite food. I have chicken sandwiches for lunch more often than not and I have variations of it for dinner all the time too. 2. What is 1 food you can’t live without? Chocolate baby, chocolate. And also that sweet brown fizzy stuff that’s known as Coca-Cola. Both terribly bad for me and I’m totally addicted to both. 3. Are you an early bird or a night owl? I’m a night owl in a very bad way. I’ve been known to go to bed at 2am on nights…
