Insensitive Council Employer

20170119_132622

Last night I experienced insensitive council employer on the phone, my flat currently has leaks due to the flat upstairs and their dodgy bathroom & kitchen. As you know not long moved into this property, so why so many problems, but let’s concentrate on this call. I’m stressed, emotional, very achey as my health suffers. I explain to the person on the phone, repairs line, that my flat is hazard, leaking in dangerous spots, I am currently still living with leaks, so it’s raw right now. I told the person I am disabled so this is more of a problem, he replied it doesn’t say you are disabled on their records, I said not long moved in, only just seen the tenancy officer this week, so my records wouldn’t be updated yet. The advice after saying my flat unsafe, the leaks are not stopping, he told me go upstairs to the flat above me, and tell the neighbour situation and get his side of things, I said I CANNOT go upstairs to confront the man who lives above, he said why not, I said I am disabled. You think that be it, he come up with different solution, nope, he told me why don’t you try go up there, how many times do I need to say, I have chronic illnesses, at this point I was highly annoyed, how can I try, please tell, I walk with crutch and wheelchair user, I suffer with non epileptic seizures, my bathroom is disabled fitted, what more proof do you need. How dare you ask someone, who can’t, just try, take your time up, hell no….

After awhile, he said I ring upstairs to get the man come downstairs, why couldn’t he just do that, after already explaining my situation. Once again feeling invisible, but this time by phone, belittling my illness, actually so stressed, then that on top, won’t lie, before bed I cried my eyes out, I felt so small, like I don’t want to be ill, but I am, unfortunately I didn’t get the man’s name, to make formal complaint, how dare you. And yes I am going to air how I feel, as nobody should be made to feel this way.

I’ve Moved

dsc_0159

So A LOT has happened since I’ve last blogged, after a very very long battle I am now in adapted home, no more dangerous steps when entering and leaving home, bigger space and overall better place. However the timing of the move was crazy, over the Christmas period, while people was enjoying the holidays, my life consisted of packing, phone calls, packing, more calls.. Christmas Day was spent surrounded by boxes. With very little time to move, the pressure was on, I lived at my previous home for 10 years longest place I’ve ever lived at, so yes over long period of time I have accumulated a lot of things, actual become hoarder, when I moved back to London on my own, age 16/17 years old I had one black bag to my name so from that, to flat with too much things for me, felt over whelming.

For me moving became a lifestyle almost, I thought yeah I got this, forgetting one thing I had in my favour in the past, the biggest thing MY HEALTH. I wasn’t ill back then, I never knew how physically draining this was going to be, just how much it would take out of me, to the point I was worried I was going to be hospitalised because of it. Moving is no joke, add being chronically ill into the mix, Christmas period so people are away, busy, off, etc, it was mission impossible task.

Now that I’m in the new spot, the work hasn’t stopped there. I have a lot of things still to go through, things that I’m giving away, going to charity, or in the bin, by the way it’s not like designer goods, collectable items just general things that been gifted to me over the years, or bought etc. And you will be on this journey with me, as create new space, use pieces I have as different furniture pieces, while bringing you along to my hospital appointments and the general life of Loopy (aka bit of everything).

New Year, new chapter, blog more.

PS- Still trying to raise money for new wheelchair, time isn’t on my side, as truly need it. Help if you can, truly be grateful. Click here for my Gofundme page. x

 

 

Happy Birthday Holly

This weekend just gone, Saturday 10th December 2016 it was Holly’s birthday, one years old. I’ve never had a pet where I’ve known the date of when they was actually born, always had rough date, but never the precise date. So it was nice to celebrate, however the weather was horrible on Saturday so no nice excursion for Holly, thankfully Sunday was better weather, and my partner was able to take her out for a long walk to the country park, they both enjoyed themselves, meeting other dogs, and being in more open spaces. That was her birthday treat, as well as the dog chew that’s in the first pic above, which she’s loving.

Fun facts about Holly, she’s all bark and no play, a lot of things scare her: plastic bags, tin foil (don’t ask, found that out recently when my partner was cooking, foil was involved and Holly added it to her scared list), things that fall, branches, and her own lead, as her lead had to be changed, as she kept chewing through her previous leads, so she now has chain lead that she doesn’t like, but it was getting very dangerous, being out and she’s destroyed her lead, yep not good. So chain lead it is.

Oh and Holly loves everybody, she wants to be fussed by everyone, and those who don’t she doesn’t get why, bless her.

Happy Birthday Holly xx

PS- My Gofundme is still going, click here, raising money for a new wheelchair, please donate whatever amount you want/can, as it will all add to my goal, which I will appreciate to the highest. It is time for giving after all ๐Ÿ™‚

Nail Polish: Nails Inc, Shade: Lexington Street.

This nail polish was from Glamour magazine, December 2016 issue, my partner thought I needed a pick me up at that time, a little treat, a welcome distraction. I almost wasn’t going to post this, because the application isn’t perfect on my nails, looks a tad messy, but you know what I wanted to review this. My hands naturally shake at times, so it was just one of those days that my hands was fairly shaky, but none the less my nails still looked lovely, even got compliments, which boosted ya girl.

Now onto the actual nail polish: When trying out new nail polish, I like to test it out, on it’s own, no base or top coat, I know living on the edge, haha. It took two coats for complete coverage. How long did it last until chipping started, and for me I can just breath on my nails and they can chip so I am always apprehensive. With this it held itself well, didn’t chip until the third day. So it gets my approval.

I know it’s December and you thinking about gifts, food etc, however I am still looking for donations for me to get new wheelchair. When I say I miss having a wheelchair, just simple things like going to my GP’s is now more challenging, not every bus stop has seats, so standing waiting is a bitch. My routes (journeys) has become even more harder, the only upside is it’s winter so it’s not like I could be outdoors too long, but doesn’t mean you guys can slack on me, any amount truly be grateful, and closer to my goal. Please check out my Gofundmeย page, click here. Also have it on my sidebar, can click on there too if you want, takes you straight there. Donate, share the link, everything helps. x

Bargain Haul

20161116-dsc_0103-copy20161117-dsc_0007-copy

It’s that time of the year, getting ready for December, and being festive. What more fitting than santa jug/jars, that has become my everyday drink to put in. Guess where it’s from, any guesses, if you shop there, you will already know, it’s from the Pound shop. Just because it’s bought from there, mean it be crap, nope.

Second picture all items bought from WHSmith, everything cost 50p besides the card game. I know you looking at this haul thinking this must be for a child, nope, all for me. The badges are characters from a film, if you not seen the movie ‘The Secret Life Of Pets’ you need to see it, it’s just how I imagine my pets are in real life if they could talk, but I also like to do voices for my pets like what they could be thinking etc, my own imaginary world, bit of comedy, so don’t know why I wasn’t contacted for the making of the this film, haha. Scotch tape because I like using it for my penpal letters, my journal and it’s just handy to have. If you new to my blog, I love love Hello Kitty so that doesn’t even need explanation, and musical card game where you have to guess the name of the song and the artist by the abstracts on each card, pre warn you it’s hard game, partner and I played it, we was lost half the time, ended up making our own stuff up for giggles. This game be good for big group, different knowledges of music.

Before I end the blog post please don’t forget to check out my Gofundme click here. Also the Gofundme logo is on the sidebar that can take you straight there. I am raising money for new wheelchair, any amount you can donate, share my Gofundme link, hugely grateful. ย  xx

In My Feelings

_20161115_150012

Abstract pic using photo of my dog’s eyes.

When you suffer with chronic illnesses, and mental health you always trying to balance the two, pain management with chronic pains, dealing with the endless hospital appointments, doctors appointment, nurses appointments, doing exercises that you can manage, trying to stay up beat even when every fibre in you is like no. I know things could be worse which I’m always grateful for, trust me I know.

However if you someone like me that gets a lot of nagging thoughts, if you suffer with anxiety you know what I am going on about. I get this wave of thoughts that just sticks there, recently it’s social media and YouTube, two things I love, I know it’s like what…. I am campaigning to raise money for a new wheelchair on Gofundme, click hereย . And it’s huge challenge, so often I feel defeated, the little energy I have I try and put it out there of my Gofundmeย page. But when I go social media and see big bloggers with designer handbags, I think just cost of one of those bags could pay for new wheelchair, companies send out big bloggers/youtubers on free trips, I think cost of one person could pay for a wheelchair, the masses of make up/ skin treatment thats given away everyday to bloggers, could pay for a wheelchair, and I hate that I see things in this light, but it’s how I feel. When I am sending out emails to charities getting no luck, even none charities, at least I am trying. But please do not think I am knocking the bloggers/youtubers as I happy for people, it’s great seeing success stories, people doing what they love, it’s amazing, plus I like reading reviews, being noisy, haha. And I too, once awhile will be sent something, not in masses, but something. So this isn’t to bash people or make people feel uncomfortable that isn’t my aim.

But please if you have the platform to help someone, it doesn’t hurt to help, and I’ve appreciated everyone that has been retweeting my Gofundme, sharing it, all love, I see it all, lets keep this ball rolling.

Mustard dress: from birthday present from my sister this year, leggings: old, shoes: Primark (couple years ago), bag: vintage shop, only ยฃ1, scarf: this was given to me when I was inpatient at hospital, gifted to me from lady who was in same ward as me, after many years still with me, wherever that lady is hope she is doing ok (as sadly we lost contact), socks: Tiger, Disney (very old), nails: Revlon, matte, shade Ruby Ribbon.

This was special occasion as my partner and I was celebrating our anniversary couple weeks ago, so made an effort to look nice, sorry I’m not doing modelling poses but best I had at the time, as I was super hungry and achey. As it’s cold, had to make sure my legs was covered, why not team it up with subtle flowery pattern leggings.

Update with the cinema, contacted VUE if you have no idea what I’m on about, it’s in my previous blog post click hereย for more understanding. VUE cinema has since apologised, as did make me feel crap, so I’m glad took notice and investigated.
