Studies and Accessibility:

Colleges and courses could definitely make things more accessible. Fixed deadlines discourage learning and just have you trying to skim through solely to get to the answers to the questions. Having to work around disability is extremely difficult and pain impacts concentration, I am currently having to pack three weeks of work into three days, I have coffee and drinks and I doubt I'll be able to sleep anytime soon. Once I've done this, I can focus on trying to get ahead with the next ten questions! This is definitely not learning! That's all I'll say!

Excited to get started and get my work done!

Finally enrolled onto new courses... I accept I'm a dork and I'm totally excited to get these under my belt so I can continue my hard work towards leaving the world a better place than I found it! #supportalways  Sarah  W 🩷 ~And 13 is actually a lucky number for me...~

It hurts but I keep going:

Femur neck fractures  Dislocated pelvis  They've left me a mess and I'm blessed to have close friends around me supporting me. Thank you, for making this week a little more bearable despite the agony I am in from my x-rays... I will likely need a hip replacement but all I can do is wait for the specialists now so forgive me if I refuse to be dragged into drama. No thank you.

Image reads: "If someone shows you their true colours, don't try to repaint them." ~ It can be hard to accept that someone is not as you'd have liked them to be, a bitter pill to swallow indeed. However, albeit a bitter taste it is truly a revelation, an eye opener, a blessing; in this sense it allows you to process the facts of who they really were. You face your pain and agree with your hurt, upset and anger because they come from a place that you know deep within your soul, you'd have never ever done that to them. In a world such as this, cold, hard and rough around the edges, it is very rare to find genuine softness, kindness, empathy or emotion. Stoicism is the new trend and cure-all, and every day, more and more of us allow the world to take a chip off us, coercive control us and we s

Pelvic x-ray: (video clip)

2018 one: I had my x-ray today at the hospital, first stork x-ray for them, and I got to see the damage on my dislocated pelvis as well as my previous x-rays. It's likely I'll need to see two specialists, one regarding my SPD and the other regarding the damage and extra bone growth on my hips. My left legs the worst. I finally feel validated, after years and years of people telling me I'm not really disabled and everything and the bullying and unkindness I just got major proof that they wouldn't last two seconds in my shoes. Walking on a dislocated pelvis. I'm proud of me. Totally proud, and so grateful to the friend who came with me today for support. Big day today and a step in the right direction.

Make up is war paint...

Image
I always feel better if I have make up on and I'm in fashion I like. Yesterday was so sunny ☀️ I enjoyed a trip to a local store with a friend.    ...and a rare one without my glasses ahaha... Today: I'm off to a hospital appointment today let's hope we can expedite the surgery so I gain a little more mobility and a lot less pain from the pelvis... *Fingers crossed* Mind you if I bump into another Dr that has zero expertise and just wants to be a parrot stuck saying "you're disabled because you're fat" I can't promise I won't slxp them. I can't stand disrespect from men in any professional capacity. Shame on them. Hopefully today I'll be respected though and I have a friend coming for support which I'm grateful for. Having plenty of fluids for my kidneys and a small coffee and I need more exercise and I can't continue my rehabilitation until they suture my dislocated pelvis so hopefully they will help me in this quest to better over

Need energy 😩

Exhausted. Been cleaning since 9am. (It's 12:16pm) Finally got my home sort of close to how it was before I allowed someone to stay. Got a parcel packaged up to post from my depop store. Just sat in my garden now that I've finally got mostly cleared and just need to clean little bits here and there, watching the clouds and birds. Buds just sitting with me and we're just chilling. Keep drinking fluids to help my kidneys and then got more work to sort. Busy busy bee 🐝. Then a friends popping round so be nice to catch up x Wishing everyone a wonderful Saturday and weekend! Sarah xx

Passion for progress:

I am currently at 904k! 😅😬☠️👀  (As producer on IMDb) Just resubmitted my unit one for my understanding autism course, had to add a bit to 2/10 questions so happy that's sorted now and I'm currently working on an e-learning project for Naari Samata. Busy busy bee! 🐝  Happy though!  Making huge progress across the board and still learning Japanese! Booyah! Sarah. @KawaiiDollDecora ♡ www.magnoliaphotography.co.uk ♡

DVLA...

Image
DVLA wants £17, a new picture and my soul before it will grant me a new license... I really don't understand... I'm going to have to find my birth certificate by the looks of things even though they have evidence of my birth certificate and maiden name from the previous provisional before this one and the letters I've sent in. Why do they not accept documents over email to be more accessible for disabled people, my birth certificate has been misplaced in my home and I need to try and find it. Guess it's going to cost me more and take longer before I can get a motability car. Definitely sucks. I just don't understand why they over complicate everything. Now to get my blood sent to them along with my soul... Wish me luck... 😅🤣😬☠️ *Exhausted* Sarah x

Exciting times ahead:

Image
 I just had my interview catch up today about my upcoming position with Durham County Council as an independent visitor for children in the care system and I have six courses to do now and I'm excited to get started. This will be the last volunteering project I will be doing as it is the third now but I am so pleased I can give back to my community and support others. I feel like I've been given a second chance at life and I want to make a positive difference in all that I do and I can do this whilst volunteering for Age UK and Naari Samata. *Excited* They're just waiting on some references now but it's all looking good and I'm keeping to deadlines and planning everything out well in advance and none of this would be possible without my wonderful pain management with my clinic. So much has changed the last three years but all for the better and if you keep making small goals and hit your targets they become bigger goals and better achievements. It's all a learni

Birthdays and meetings:

Image
I wanna say a HUGE thank you to everyone who's been so kind and wished me a happy birthday to me today and the mates that stepped up and helped me get a cider and that, you mean the world to me and I appreciate you so much!  Sending lots of love 💟 xx Been to the council meeting and now having a nice chill cider and enjoying the atmosphere at my local sports complex, in which the staff are always amazing and helpful.  Totally invaluable/indespensable. Just like my mates 😅🥹💪❤️ Stay shining! ✨ You've all helped to make my birthday a good one so I don't even know what I was even worried about! Just get anxious around my birthday but this one has been absolutely lovely. Sarah Wingfield Author 🌹 Xoxo

Nettles and cleaning up:

Image
I was sorting my garden, cleaning up after my dog Bud ahaha and got some of the overgrown pulled but the nettles aren't happy... Got attacked, slapped on the wrist so I'll tackle them later... *Uncomfy* 😫 Rinsed under cold water and sudocrem. At least I'm doing my bestest! The old chair has gone now so my garden is lovely and clear now. Had a meeting with the charity yesterday and I've got my work I need to do now, I'm so excited to get started! Sarah x
