Living with blindness

If I had been given the choice between having sight and losing it or being born blind, I would choose being born blind because if you have never had it, you don’t miss it.

Let’s talk about chocolate

I love the stuff.  Be it as a bar of just chocolate or a bar with fruit, nuts, biscuit, caramel or nougat or a biscuit or a cake or a pudding.  Chocolate is my thing.

Hello!

I'm Debs, and you've found
my little corner of the internet

I am a happily married mum of three. Our house is home to myself, my husband, three children and a huge variety of special educational needs and disabilities (ranging from severe visual impairment to autism, from speech and communication issues to dyspraxia and from osteoarthritis to vertigo) and it's also home to one very very nutty dog.

Life is never ever dull!

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, please
feel free to leave your comments and thoughts.
