Changing Places Loo: The Ultimate Solution for Families to Enjoy Dinosaurs Together


Just thought some of you might be delighted to know that ‘Roarr’ in Norfolk have now added a changing places loo to their access provision for visitors. This is fantastic news!!

Roarr (The UK’s largest Dinosaur Park) is a lovely family fun day out for dinosaur lovers. I have been their with Nephews in the past, and managed to get round it in my powerchair (I didn’t go everywhere, but where I did was possible) except I didn’t attempt the boat ride.

When I went it was quite a few years ago, so I expect it’s even more fun with new stuff now. They had a great digger type thing in the sand area which you could probably do from a wheelchair, I think I was allowed a quick go by the boys.

How to Introduce Your Mobility Aids to Your Pet

If you rely on mobility aids to get around, it’s essential to ensure that your furry friend is comfortable with them too. Here are some tips to help you introduce your mobility aids to your pet:

  1. Start Slowly: Introduce your pet to your mobility aids gradually. Allow them to sniff and explore the aids at their own pace. This will help them become familiar with the aids and feel more comfortable around them.
  2. Use Positive Reinforcement: Reward your pet with treats and praise when they show interest in your mobility aids. This will help them associate the aids with positive experiences and encourage them to interact with them more.
  3. Practice with Your Pet: Once your pet is comfortable with your mobility aids, practice using them together. This will help your pet get used to the aids and understand how they work. It will also help you feel more confident using them around your pet.
  4. Be Patient: It may take some time for your pet to get used to your mobility aids. Be patient and continue to use positive reinforcement to help them feel comfortable. Remember that every pet is different, and some may take longer to adjust than others.

By following these tips, you can help your pet feel comfortable with your mobility aids and ensure that they are a helpful addition to your daily routine. It’s important to remember that your pet’s comfort and safety should always come first, so take your time and be patient as you introduce them to your aids. With a little patience and positive reinforcement, your pet will soon be comfortable around your mobility aids, and you can both enjoy your daily activities together.

Hide & Seek.

Once upon a time, there was a young boy named Tim who loved to play hide and seek. He was so good at it that sometimes he would hide for hours and no one could find him. One day, Tim’s family was moving to a new home and they were in a hurry to leave. They called out to Tim, “Tim, where are you? Stop hiding, we have to go now. New home!”


But there was no answer. Tim’s family searched high and low, but they couldn’t find him anywhere. They looked under the bed, in the closet, and even in the backyard, but Tim was nowhere to be found. They started to worry that they would have to leave without him.

Just as they were about to give up, they heard a faint giggle coming from behind the curtains. They pulled back the fabric to reveal Tim, curled up in a ball, trying to stifle his laughter. “Gotcha!” he exclaimed, grinning from ear to ear.

His family breathed a sigh of relief and scolded him for hiding when they were in such a hurry. But Tim just shrugged and said, “I couldn’t resist one last game of hide and seek in our old home.”

They all laughed and hugged each other, happy to be together and ready for their new adventure in their new home. Tim promised to be more responsible and not hide when they needed to leave in a hurry.

As they drove away, Tim looked out the window and waved goodbye to his old home. He was excited to explore his new surroundings and make new memories with his family. And who knows, maybe he would even find some new hiding spots to challenge his family to a game of hide and seek in their new home.

Accessible play for all.


Play is an essential part of childhood, and every child deserves access to it. Unfortunately, many playgrounds and outdoor activities are not designed with accessibility in mind, leaving children with disabilities or impairments unable to participate fully. This lack of inclusivity can cause feelings of exclusion and isolation in children, which can have long-term consequences on their mental health.

The Importance of Accessible Play

Play is crucial for a child’s physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development. It helps them learn important skills such as problem-solving, communication, creativity, and teamwork. Play also promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyles. However, many children with disabilities or impairments face barriers when it comes to accessing play.

These websites have some great ideas, and advice.

Teaching kids about good money habits.

Developing good money habits from childhood is crucial for a lifetime of financial success. However, the question remains: whose responsibility is it to teach this essential skill? Should it be left solely to parents, or should schools also play a role in financial education?


It is widely accepted that parents are the primary educators of their children. Therefore, it is their responsibility to instill good money habits in their children from a young age. Parents can teach their children the value of money, how to budget, and the importance of saving. These lessons can be reinforced through practical activities such as giving children an allowance and encouraging them to save a portion of it.

However, schools also have a role to play in financial education. Many young adults leave school without a basic understanding of personal finance, which can lead to financial difficulties later in life. Schools can teach students about budgeting, saving, investing, and credit management. These skills are essential for navigating the complex financial landscape of adulthood.

In conclusion, developing good money habits is a lifelong skill that should be taught from childhood. While parents are the primary educators, schools can also play a vital role in financial education. By working together, parents and schools can ensure that the next generation is equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for financial success.

Uncovering the Mystery: Could the Search for Maddie Finally be Over?

Just been reading an article about someone who believes she is the missing Maddie McCann.

I’m doubtful after all this time, but wouldn’t it be incredible if she was.

The thing is though, even if she is she’ll be like a stranger to the family now after all these years.

We’ll just have to wait for the DNA results. Here’s a link to the article so you can read it for yourselves

I can remember it being all over the news when Maddie vanished all those years ago, and have followed the story since. Let’s keep hoping for a miracle.

Forever in Good Hands: Providing for Your Disabled Childs Needs After Your Passing.

I think the one thing that worries parents of children who have disabilities, is what will happen to their child on the event of the parent’s death. There are many things you can put into place to help ensure them a more comfortable and secure future, but you need to do them sooner rather than later.


Planning for the future is an essential step for any family, but it is particularly important for those with disabled children. As a parent, your priority is to ensure your child’s wellbeing and security, not only while you are alive but also after your passing. Estate planning is a crucial tool that can help protect your child’s future and ensure that their needs are met.

Ensuring the well-being of our loved ones after we pass away is a crucial reason to create a will. This is especially true if you have a child with a disability, as they may require specialized and often expensive care.

It’s important to note that the term “disabled” can refer to a wide range of disabilities, including physical and/or learning disabilities. Individuals can be vulnerable for various reasons, and it’s essential to carefully consider the provisions that should be included in a will to benefit them.

By taking the time to create a comprehensive will, you can provide peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones, knowing that their needs will be taken care of even after you’re gone. Don’t hesitate to seek professional guidance to ensure that your will is legally sound and tailored to your specific circumstances.

Determining the best living arrangements for your child with special needs can be a daunting task. It is crucial to consider various factors such as financial benefits, support from family members, and care plans. Additionally, it is essential to contemplate your child’s life expectancy and medical prognosis.

Once you have carefully evaluated all of these factors, it is time to create a will that includes appropriate financial provisions. This will ensure that your child’s future is secure and that they will receive the necessary care and support they need.

It is important to remember that this process may be challenging, but it is necessary to ensure your child’s well-being. By taking the time to plan and prepare, you can provide your child with a bright and secure future.
