Manchester Bound

So here we are 2014 and its January so far no big appointments to tell you about although they are coming thick and fast now! I am planning my first trip to Manchester next week so i thought id give you a wee preview, i might even bring photos back!

So i applied for the second leg of the Capital One Cup games between Manchester United v Sunderland. Now being a wheelchair user i never expect to get a ticket or id get disappointed! So any tickets are a bonus.

I was lucky to obtain tickets, saying that United i like to give me tickets for night games, even though nothing beats a game under the flood lights at Old Trafford.

So i shall make my normal trip up north via bus, train and taxi to my final location The Lowry Hotel i choose this hotel because of there disabled facilities fantastic, i will meet up with my good friend Mark and i will now name him my football no.2 as we go to alot of games together!

The plan is food and football wednesday followed my lunch and traveling home on thursday!

I am looking forward to going and glad to be out and about in January as its normally a quite month for me

Plus im going to my second home MANCHESTER!!!

Practicality over brand

Mobile Phone Upgrade

You see i have been really unlucky with rheumatoid because not only did it take my legs it made my hands really deformed and makes a lot of thimgs difficult and one of those things is using a mobile phone. Now its just not as simple as getting which phone you love, im a huge fan of samsung ive had these phones for 6 years but now they are huge and just not practicle for me so heres what i have to consider

  • size of mobile
  • weight of mobile - too light would not be good

Now you see most people just go oh i love that phone and get it for me i have to consider all these things and it means i often can not get the phone id love and the brand i trust, but what do i do? i have a phone because of brand and choice that i crnt use or do i get a phone thats practicle and useable .. well theres no point in getting a phone i can not use, its a hard thing to deal with but at least the "new" brand ill be getting is still stylish just not a brand i prefer.

Its not the biggest thing or the most distaterous but it just hurts i have to let my rheumatoid rule my choices not just for the easy and simple things.
