The French Lieutenant took me to a bar he said would be right for me, cool, trendy, full of antiques and with a hippo on the wall! Initially insulted I was also intrigued. So we found Loungelover in a back street near Shoreditch High St. This is a bar which is part of  Les Trois…

Being a Man United fan may not be stylish but it’s in my blood. So when I was offered a wheelchair + carer ticket, I ‘jumped’ at the chance. A three hour  drive later we (Me & Lieutenant No1) arrived in Manchester and promptly got lost. We were in a Black Chrysler Voyager adapted car…

I have just relented and converted my bathroom to a wheel-in wet-room. Thanks to my builder Paul and designer Roger at Nonsense Design, we have created a stylish bathroom that does not look out of place in a 5 Star hotel. I went mad on a special sink from Hewi , (German design) and the…
