Using A Wheelchair is Not The End of The World

I have used a wheelchair since I was about 15 which is around 11 years ago. Jesus Christ when did I get so old? Anyway, I've been using a wheelchair for a long time. I use it more now than when I first got one as my health has deteriorated and will continue to do so. So why is everyone so obsessed with getting me out of the chair and walking again? My wheelchair has not ruined my life. It has, in fact, made my life a million times better. I can get out of the house more, I have less pain when out and about and I get to experience life. My wheelchair has allowed me to have the life of an average 20ish girl instead of constantly being stuck in the house in too much pain.

I am sat in a pink wheelchair amongst a pile of orange fallen leaves. I am wearing a long blue jumper, black tights and ugg boots. The background is a tree and a church

Read in April 2019

April was a terrible month for reading and May has been a terrible month for writing blog posts. I only managed to finish 2 books. I don't know what got into me. I struggled to get into one of them which didn't encourage me to pick it up. I also got hooked on Bones again and finally finished the series. I'm not sure how to feel now that I don't have that in my life anymore. However, I have recently bought the Rizzoli & Isles boxset as I missed a lot of episodes the first time around. I have nearly finished series 1 already so who knows if I'll get through more books in May.

Plans for Curve Fashion Fest 2019

If you saw my post back in November or happened to be on Twitter then you will have seen that Curve Fashion Fest 2018 didn't quite go to plan. It mainly came down to a huge increase in attendance. An extra 1000+ tickets were bought compared to previous years. The venue had promised that it could cater to those numbers but in reality, it couldn't do it comfortably.

The lovely people behind Curve Fashion Festival realised they needed to make a change for it to be enjoyable and more importantly accessible this year. Zoe and Hollie invited a few of us to see the new (actually old as this is where it used to be) venue and get our feedback. You can check out Nici's post as well.
