Parking on Pavements.... Nothing Has Changed

Parking on pavements is one of my biggest bugbears, as it is for many other people.  The worst offenders are those who park across the pavement in such a way that there isn't even enough room to walk around, let alone get a wheelchair or pushchair past.

An incident happened with my Mum just over 30yrs ago which I'd hoped would have gone some way in changing things.... Sadly, its not....

Media Tart

Why such a title, I hear you ask?  Well that's a nickname that I've come by over the years.  When media opportunities arise, I seem to be at the right place, at the right time so to speak

My first taste of 'fame' was winning a local baby competition.... The prize, a leather bound photo album, which I still have today.  The winning photo.....

Disability = Old and Wheelchair User?

Ok, so this is going to be a bit of a rant post, mainly because of peoples reactions to me parking in a disabled bay...

When it first started happening I put it down to people just being protective of disabled bays and ensuring they weren't being abused... I was quite happy that someone was 'fighting my corner' so to speak.
