Sometimes its the little things!

Written by
Today I went for a long walk with my guide dog Frankie.   Frankie works hard but gets plenty of free time to balance this. Today we walked up to the woods passed the dams, I was very aware of the fact of avoiding chit chat, it is not always easy with a blonde Labrador but we went early when not too many people were about . The amazing thing was I could take my time and enjoy listening to the sleepy environment around me.  Often the sound of silence is magical after years and years of experiencing whistling and feedback…

Typical Sunday!

Written by
Catching up with family and repacking for a trip up to the north of Scotland to visit family. Anybody who has hearing aids knows it crucial to make sure you always , always, always carry a spare set of aids if possible, just in case!  As I was packing I came across my old NHS pair of hearing aids, at the time (2019) I was assured they were the best on offer!  They had served me ok in the past, they had to!  I decided to check them out and change over new batteries. I decided to put them in to…

Colin Update February

Written by
So here we are a few months down the line and feeling quite the expert in hearing aids and aftercare!  My new ReSound smart hearing aids have done so much for me and have without a doubt given me a far better quality of life that’s for sure which along with it brings a new found confidence.  For anybody who is deaf blind you’ll know where I’m coming from when I say that winter can make you a prisoner in your own home, the long dark days are so challenging from when the clocks go back until they spring forward. …

Sound Sound So Good

Written by
I have now been wearing my smart hearing aids for over 2 months.  I’ve had a few issues, more relating to myself than the hearing aids.  Firstly it would seem I have very waxy ears, as a result I did need to visit the audiologist to discuss this as it did affect the microphone.  A good clean and some adaptations helped. I am very into enabling gadgets and very creative in getting things to work for me so understanding what will and what won’t work with my hearing aids has been of interest to me alongside appreciating the new sounds…

Colin: November 1st, 2019 was without a doubt one of the biggest days of my life as Lyn and I finally got married.  The one big thing I was always concerned about was that this was going to be a big and social event, min and Lyn’s big event,…

Sometimes ignorance is bliss!

Written by
I’m on the train home after a long day 3 trains and a 3 hour journey . I was just about first on so I placed my rucksack on the seat with my harness over it and put Frankie on the floor under the seat . I then thought I heard a gent mutter something under his breath so I tuned my aids in on the outdoor setting and sure enough he was. If he had only had the decency to ask I would have gladly given up my seat for him or his wife. There was no need to…

A little time to reflect

Written by
Today I’m feeling a bit washed out it’s been an exciting emotional but most of all a life changing week.  I decided to chill out and take the dogs up the big hill.  It’s about 4 miles through the woods and dams with stunning views. Today I found myself taking a lot longer than normal as it suddenly hit me that I could hear pitch perfect silence at the bottom of the hill, there was no muffled white noise or whistling, something that had become the norm with my standard NHS hearing aids, not even the constant irritation of wind…
