Well it has been 4 months since my last post; a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then. It’s hard to believe we are now in March, roll on spring.
Notably the fastest electric wheelchair world record is still on going and we hope to begin testing soon, this will hopefully coincide with some nice weather. Regarding this although there has been little news on the project we hope March will see the coming together of all the parts in one place, various people throughout the country have...

Well an update is long overdue, and maybe some inside information on my challenges that the media don’t want to say. Well since my last blog post the weather has changed a little, enough to make me shiver all the time unless I wear ten layers and reassemble the Michelin man.
I have mainly been busy promoting our 2 challenges, of which one was successful completed on Monday 1st October, now caving is not something I have never tried and to be honest it wasn’t on my bucket list. So how... Read the full article
So the suitcase had proceeded to clearance, does that mean it will be here today asks Liz? Unlikely as it is still in Istanbul lol, so at regular intervals the tracking was checked but no change. The girls finally decided to try kids club, which was pretty good. It includes a train, bumper cars, a carousel and water slide as well as craft, and pizza making. This would come in handy. The evening entertainment was as a rule very good with dance acts, magicians and even bicycle stunts.... Read the full article
So the holiday continues.
We woke to the fact that the suitcase was on hold, this clearly didn’t go down well with Liz, and she was well restrained to be fair. First breakfast then down to the pool complete with hoist, inflatable crocodile, rubber ring and Jet Ski. Once installed Thelma and I embarked on what ended up being a two hour lift ride. We went to see our new friends at guest relations to get them to ring DHL, (dump, hide, lose) to find out the problem? We needed... Read the full article
As title suggests I have decided to do this post in diary form, but before I start a little introduction.
The two weekends previous we were away, the first was at fully charged at Silverstone and the second we went to a concert at the O2 in London, pre booked before the holiday. Health wise I was not eating due to lack of appetite and been tube feed but drinking.
We were 1.5 hrs late setting off as you do if you’re the Liversidge’s, so of course there was then an... Read the full article
So here I am again, made another year. Possibly luck has a lot to do with it? Or is it my sheer determination to concur life with this illness. I find it intriguing how everyone suffers differently, how people deal with it differently, and the pure hatred for the disease.
I have to date made some fair achievements even by my standards. I got married to the love of my life, had two amazing girls. Been to see Mickey mouse twice, swam with Dolphins, did the longest zip wire in Europe,... Read the full article
Well what a few weeks it’s been, in a nut shell – centre parcs, Beverley Westwood, nominated for trustee with MNDA, getting stuck in promoting the fastest electric wheelchair world record, followed by an exciting few weeks.
Firstly our yearly trip to centre parcs at Sherwood Forest and this time we took our 4 legged friend Popcorn, this worked quite well and wasn’t as bad as we thought it might given she is a puppy. The girls as always loved the swimming activities while dad got jealous of all the fun;... Read the full article
Finally we have nice weather, or am I dreaming lol. BBQ’s are here and maybe it’s Pimms o’clock.
I have decided to do a little test, to see if people actually read all my blog post, so keep reading. Since my last blog believe it or not we haven’t done that much although we have covered some miles. Last weekend saw our regional mnda conference which wasn’t so regional as it was in Kendal. The most exciting part for me is the research part, gives an insight into new possibilities. I... Read the full article
Well is this the start of some nice weather? If so it will go blog crazy as the Liversidge’s will be out everywhere in search of fun.
Health update – still here lol, lung capacity is static and so is my weight despite lack of appetite and the odd feed in my gastronomy tub. The bed saga continues due to the simple fact people can’t deliver what you ordered. A visit to Sheffield mnd care centre saw me fall asleep during a survey complete with snoring, think I was a bit... Read the full article
