Here’s To A New Year

I’ve been hovering over my keyboard for about a week now trying to decide what to write about next. I had written half a post on my disastrous family trip to Edinburgh, but as I was typing/reading it I was boring myself. Basically, my parents had planned for us to all go see a magician…

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Or Is It?

As my title suggests I have mixed feelings about this time of the year, I mainly love it though. The reason for that is because…IT’S CHRISTMAS!!! I love this holiday season, however this year I just don’t feel as Christmassy as others. I have a strong dislike to the cold weather though and would rather…

International Day of People with Disabilities

Sunday 3rd December 2017 was International Day of People with Disabilities and I had mixed feelings about this when I noticed it was coming up. At first, I was annoyed because I just saw it that people with disabilities were getting singled out  but then I thought about it more. You get International Red Hair …

CHAS Hospice, Rachel House

Just over two weeks ago I had the pleasure of presenting at CHAS’s transition event about my life, my journey through education and how supported I’ve felt from the CHAS transition team with moving into adult services. CHAS (Children’s Hospice Across Scotland) is a brilliant charity that for over 20 years has been supporting babies,…

Staying At The Crowne Plaza, Glasgow

Some of you may have read my post last year around Christmas time about my struggle of staying in a hotel in Edinburgh and having to hire equipment that didn’t work. Well it might not be Edinburgh, but I have finally found a hotel in Glasgow that takes away all that stress. Last month I…

First Year Blogiversary

WOW I can’t actually believe it, but it has been a year since I started my blog A Journey In My Wheels and what a year it has been. Time definitely flies when you are having fun. This day creped up on me this weekend and in order to celebrate instead of placing a candle…

Enchanted Forest

I have wanted to go to the Enchanted Forest in Pitlochry for a few years now, however the information regarding accessibility for wheelchairs on their website has put me off booking tickets. Am I alone in this? I don’t think so. Previously I have tried phoning customer services to get more information, but I was…

Busy, Busy, Busy

Well apologies guys for being a bit MIA recently but do you want to know why? I’ve been having too much fun. I started this blog to diminish the negative views some people have on life with a disability and show you that myself/others with disabilities don’t just sit around all day, we live our…

Festival Vibes

Well this last weekend was a little bit different. I attended the newest Scottish music festival to hit Dundee, Carnival 56. Now the first thing I would like to mention is why it’s called Carnival 56, this is a question I have been asked a lot since the weekend and after Google searching it I’ve…

Travel Life part 3

This is a blog post that I was hoping to write at the start of the year but other things came up and I had other things to write about. Anyway, this week I have had major holiday blues and I have been thinking about last year. The sun, the sea, the different cities, the…
