Why do blind people care about how they look? Having been asked this question too many times, I thought I’d have a go at answering it in today’s post.

Reminded how important WDSA and small charities like it are. They need our support so they can support those who are most vulnerable

Often we don’t do things we want to because it’s scary or hard, but what’s really holding you back from doing what makes you happy? Recently for me, it was sight loss and ballet, but I’ve found a way.

Use the hashtag if you are a blind or visually impaired mum and share the things you get up to. Or if you know a mum who can’t see so well, use the hashtag, tag her and tell the world what she does that makes her amazing in your eyes.

I don’t drive. It’s because I can’t see but my husband and brothers insist I’d be a rubbish driver regardless due to incurable clumsiness. Anyway, I use a fair bit and thought I’d share how I use it and why it works if like me, you can’t see.

After my first encounter with a talking toilet cubicle for visually impaired users, I was so impressed that I am actually writing about toilets. Yes, I apologise now. I’ll strive to focus on more polite topics in the future!
