I'm writing this as an emergency post because of what has been coming to light over the last few days in the country of Ukraine.

I am saddened that Russia has invaded Ukraine because it is not just the ordinary everyday person who is going to be affected by this on both sides. it is going to be by the disabled people who are going to be left behind

We may be a small minority in each country however our words should be heard as well and we need peace.

Once this is finished if ever. will be detrimental to everyone due to the stress I've mentally and physically that everyone will be in during and after because those are going to be the effect that is the longest term. Having a disability does not mean that we are going to be weak-minded but we have a physical or mental situation that is there. 


I am pleading as a blogger and as a person with a disability that peace is needed as soon as possible it doesn't matter what race you are or anything else because we are still all human no matter what. I'm hearing stories and imagining things that could not be envisaged in my life with a disability but can be imagined by previous pictures and events of disabilities caused by horrific events such as what is happening in Ukraine right now when I write this.

I am from the UK or should I say the United Kingdom but as I have said before everyone is the same inside we may have a different colour or religion but we all have rained bones and skin. and one of my reasons for writing out my blog is because I want to show that despite having a disability I am just the same as everybody else.

 I despise what is happening right now. I can see so much pain and stress caused by what is going on that Putin has started. 

The Ukrainian people need support in all ways possible. If you have a spare limb

support or crutches or anything that will help the disabled as well as the normal things such as food clothing etc that the average person has to have on a day-to-day basis in touch difficult times then please use your local charity bases where you can drop off extra bits and pieces that you have but don't need anymore so that they can be sent out to the people who need it the most. My heart goes out to all those people stuck in such precarious places right now in Ukraine and I hope that even my small voice can help you get the help you need.

I am asking for peace in the world as there are so many disabled people who are affected by war in whatever country. I do not condone any war

A Crazy Year in Retrospect Part 3


Like the last post, life had been pretty calm, and able to do things calmly, with no real stress. I had started to get the sensation of anxiety coming back. I knew that the calmness was beginning to come to the end. I know while writing, this. It is only short term. The feelings being back made me know that this will also affect me. By causing problems with my type of Cerebral Palsy.


This month was the same although the sense of anxiety was getting stronger and stronger. I had been feeling more and more anxious about the future. I did do the 1st step which was a kind of relief.  Yet the uncertainty of the future means my cerebral palsy has been affected. Yet I don’t know how just yet.


This month again had been a mixed bag of feelings. I was able to get Christmas almost completed before the actual event. The stress was beginning to start showing itself. Through tightness of muscles and the inability to wind down.


This month was the end of what was a fairly good year before a new year which is a transitional one, to say the least.

Final ideas

The whole year had been a good one on the whole. Cerebral palsy has been good and life despite the pandemic was good this year

 This is the end of the series on the year in retrospect.

A CrazyYear in Retrospection Part 2

 This is the continuing series of posts regarding my thoughts about the year. For myself before moving on about this year.


This month was quiet and was a month where I continued doing the things that made me feel better and recovering from the feelings of anxiety and fear that had been over me for so long. I didn’t realise until recently how pressured I had been whilst living in the previous place with the family. 

Covid hadn’t disrupted me that much as I hadn’t been out much during the winter and early spring. As the weather affects the way cerebral palsy causes issues for me in the season. So I was enjoying a bit of freedom but still limiting the amount I went out because of the pandemic 


This month was much the same as before and started looking after myself mentally and physically in some ways that I can. This included and still includes the following:

  • Manicure

  • Lashes tinted 

  • Eyebrows tinted and tidied

  • Hair cut


Again this was similar to the previous month. So it was relatively calm and the kids were coming to the end of their school year. The thing was the ability to say yes to what the kids wanted rather than say no all the time.


This month was the same as July in the sense that I was able to say yes to the kids, myself and my hubby.


Final thoughts

There was lots of freedom for me despite the pandemic. So I feel privileged to have been able to do the things I can while there are so many who have lost their jobs or life.
