Changing Places, Norwich.

I had to go to Norwich (UK) yesterday, and by chance discovered that Chantry Place shopping centre has a changing places loo. It’s on the dining terrace level, and requires a radar key to access it.

It was later in the day, and the centre was quiet so I decided to pop and take some photos so people might be aware of it, and the facilities provided in there.

There’s a bench for changing, or if you need time out of a chair to stretch for a short time etc…. a hoist, bars by the loo, a height adjustable sink with controller to the taps/plug/light for mirror above the sink, there’s also two hand dryers one’s lower down with a fun themed picture on it. Also there is a screen which is movable if required.

Room to transfer from either side of the loo, though you may need to move that yellow bin, I’m not certain about that. The red cord was hanging down to almost floor length, and hadn’t been tied up like so many are.


What is clutter, what does that word mean to you?

Where can you reduce clutter in your life?

Others would say I have a lot of clutter, but I would disagree with that statement. I have lots of things, but a serious lack of storage space and i think that is the main issue.

My disability means that I can only reach things within a certain height/distance range, so tidying everything away into low drawers, onto high shelves isn’t a practical option day to day living.

A good amount of my belongings are related to my hobbies and interests, so one great solution for my so called ‘clutter’, would be the creation of a craft room, with lots of table space, drawers and shelves at suitable heights and even better if they are height adjustable. If I had this space i would also spend more time crafting, reading, taking photos etc…. because it would be so much easier and quicker to avcess the things I need for each project.

I would love to have a minimalist appearance around my own home, with one exception being in the craft room which would probably never look tidy for more than a day.

Ideal reading zone.

You get to build your perfect space for reading and writing. What’s it like?


I love reading and always have done. I grew up reading all sorts of books, fiction, true stories, adventure, crime, magical, mystery and more.

Books take you into a whole new world, each one is different, and you can’t help but learn something from each new book you read. These new worlds deserve a special place in which to be enjoyed and savoured from the real world in which we live.

If I could have a special area/room just for reading in, then this is what I’d love to create….. A room with two opposite walls filled with bookshelves, one end wall would have a bay window with a deep window seat with angled ends which could act as a back rest if desired.

There would be plenty of cushions and a lovely Sherpa fleece draped to one side to snuggle up in whilst reading, and a flip round table on which to rest the book if wanted.

At the other end of the room would be a real working fireplace, and to one side there would be a mini fridge containing milk and butter, there would also be tea and hot chocolate things along with bread, as well as a kettle and toaster so you could spend all day in there drinking tea and eating freshly made toast.

No, I didn’t forget the door, that would be a secret hidden left for you to discover how to get into my little private hideaway library.
