I remember thinking 2020 is going to be my year, finally I’m getting somewhere, I’m going places, I had work plans, a diary full of work and travel all round Europe and Scandinavia - many events booked a year in advance, why?  Because clients wanted me!  Yes, I was approached directly.  I cannot express how good that feels.  My hard work, my desire and persistence to make a difference had really begun to pay off my work, my commitment and passion for accessibility, inclusion and positive change noticed for what it is.  The importance of diversity.  Could things really be…

I was so excited about 2020, it was set to be another full year, lots of exciting projects, lots of learning, lots of educating, lots of travel, a new nephew and my own flat.  Instead it’s been a year of cancelled travel, a bit of furlough, lots of remote working and learning, two nephews and here’s hoping that new flat happens too!

As a naturally creative person I was particularly excited about the arrival of the iPad Pro and Pencil but I did have the usual reservations that go with somebody with only 5 degrees of vision and big screens. When I opened the box and saw the size of the screen I was very apprehensive as big is not necessarily better for somebody with tunnel vision, especially a tunnel as small as mine. On taking the tablet from it’s box I was surprised at how light it was and how much a bigger version of my iPad air. Switching on the…

I’ve written about my Grandad before and thought as he will be 80 very soon that I’d write about him again. I have always been very close to him.  This last few years he just seems to have got old, he’s grumpier than he used to be, he’s slower than he used to be, he never visits us anymore and he comes up with all sorts of reasons why, the fact is he has developed lots of things associated with growing old!  A few months ago Grandad gave up his driving licence, I think it was for a few reasons,…
