LikeLike Reply I never would’ve thought it was intended literally 😆. LikeLike Reply Lol 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Omg, I get the name now. I always read it as ‘blind z any girl’… if you can believe that! That’s why it always stood out— it made no sense lol. I’m so glad I commented on your name haha. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Lol. No worries. Glad you did. Mi am as zany as they come! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hahaha! 🤣 LikeLike Reply I actually just googled how blind people use computers and phones etc. Now I’m messing about with voiceover mode on my phone! It’s fascinating. And because my phone is in French language (to help me with learning French), my phone is speaking French back at me! 🤣. I can even turn the screen completely black. I’m considering learning to use my phone like this!! It would save so much battery power and would really confuse people! 😁. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Lol. I have not been blind for really long so am still learning how to use technology and all the apps. No one to teach me so I teach myself 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Wow, I admire your sense of humour then!! Just got to see it as another challenge to overcome! Really, no one to help you? LikeLike Reply My husband helps me a bit but he doesn’t understand all thevtechnology oroperly. Olus he is busy and I cannot keep calling on him to come and help me. We are both in wheelchairs.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m glad to hear that! I was just reading some of your posts and read the one about the Tesco order. I’m hoping that you get some volunteers to help you through the recent NHS recruitment. I’m one of the volunteers too. LikeLiked by 1 person Are you. Gosh! What do you do? Well done you. LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you, it’s really no trouble for me to volunteer 🙂. I have a car as well, so I’m hoping to help people in your kind of situation. I registered last week, but I haven’t heard back yet about actually starting. If you lived in Reading, I’d help you now! LikeLiked by 1 person Oh bless you. No we live in North Lincolnshire. The council brought us some milk last week but then wevgot that dekivery slot last night so we will manage now LikeLiked by 1 person Cool. That’s great the council helped a bit.

LikeLike Thnak you my friend 👍🖤 LikeLike Reply Welcome LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hahaha! You relate to autism too? Awesome!! Oh man, I used to be soooo bad with that too. So so bad. But I managed to learn it somehow haha. I think part of it comes from thinking nahh they wouldn’t want to kiss me, as well as just not knowing when is the time as you say. But still, a man is meant to lead, being a woman is the easy part!! 😅😉 Now as with everything else, I literally just go ‘fuck it’, and it usually works out!!
