My summary of August 2019

This month has basically been filled with work, work and more work – with the odd Netflix binge and some sleep added in for good measure.

Disability Horizons & AccessAble

I’ve continued my news articles for Disability Horizons and recently published my review of the accessible caravan in Norfolk.

I also attended two meetings with local councils for AccessAble and published a blog post about the benefits of access guides for wheelchair users with sight loss.

All this work can be found in my blog roundup below.

I also have some additional AccessAble news – I’ve secured meetings for October with East Hampshire District Council, Havant Borough Council and Fareham Borough Council.

Music

I regret to say this but I did not manage to attend a music festival this summer and have still not had a chance to book any gigs for the next few months. However it is definitely on my to do list.

Films

I got to see the action re-make of The Lion King at the cinema. Due to my poor vision, I struggled to enjoy the visual elements, but the story, comedy and music was still fun.

Television

I finished watching the final series of Orange is the New Black on Netflix. I felt it was a rather bittersweet ending to be honest.

I’ve also begun re-watching series 1 & 2 of 13 Reasons Why before starting series 3, which arrived on Netflix last week.

Donations

Also I thought I should give an update how much blog donations have been given this year. So far, we’ve raised £175 with 20% going to a worthy cause.

Initially I was going to save all the money until the end of the year then donate 20% to a charity in December.

However, when I came across Fi Anderson’s crowdfunding page for a new specialist wheelchair, I wanted to make an immediate donation. I gave 20% of the blog donations plus an additional £5 personal donation. I’m eager to contribute more so please continue to give donations.

Blog Schedule Changes

Due to my workload mounting up, I’ve made the decision to step back on blogging twice a week. Find out more details on my blog post Blog Schedule Changes.
