    Gadgets to help with gripping a pen etc

    'Gripping Gadgets' (part 2)
    On second thoughts ... perhaps there's room for one more item in my shopping basket?!:-

    Especially for holding onto my hairdryer -Gripeeze Gloves:-

    Oooh!

    Possibly just what I need.

    I could not see how these work exactly - do they kind of strap the fingers together to make the grip?

    And would they allow me to hold a pen?

      Kayleigh, I have a handsfree stand that my hair dryer clips onto. I don’t use it anymore as I can’t lift my arms high enough to hold my brush and style my hair. Hubby has taken over and is doing a pretty good job, he has hidden talents!
      Got it on Amazon. You’re welcome to it, if you fancy s trip to Nottingham xx

        Hi Andy,
        This 'small item gripping aid' might be more suitable than the Gripeeze Gloves for holding a pen:-

          These seem to be out of stock?

          Did you manage to buy these?

          Best,

            Hi Andy,
            I didn't notice that they are out of stock (when I looked yesterday) - thanks for letting me know.
            They are also on this website:-

              Hi Helen,

              I'm a bit of a shopaholic and I love browsing in shops, as well as making lots of purchases from them. When Andy mentioned in his post that he is looking for something suitable for gripping pliers with, I couldn't resist doing some online searches.... and once I'm in an online shop, I can't help having a browse at what's available - in all the departments! LOL

              Thanks for your helpful tip about the hair dryer stand. Although I have enjoyed many happy hours browsing in 'Amazon' , I haven't noticed them before, and so thanks for your recommendation! I don't live near Nottingham, but many thanks for thinking of me, in case I did .... you are very kind and you have a heart of gold! I will keep your recommendation in mind about ordering a stand from Amazon - and/or hopefully my hubby will be as talented as yours is!

              Love and best wishes to you and your family,
              Kayleigh x

                Hi Kayleigh,

                I am doing a lot of online browsing at the moment looking for my mother of the bride outfit. I will be in my power chair all day so I need something comfortable but glamorous too!

                Love from another shopaholic X

                  Hi Helen,

                  I find that my 'fit and flare' style dresses are especially comfortable to wear in my wheelchair. If you are thinking of buying a dress to wear at the wedding, Wallis have got quite a good range at the moment. I have posted a link to their webpage for fit and flare dresses - there are also other dress styles, clothes and accessories on their website, that might also be worth a browse

                  Happy shopping!

                    Hi Helen,

                    .... and now I am browsing in John Lewis. I have arrived at the 'Women's Wedding Fashion' department. I thought of you when I saw the glamorous outfits in the 'Mother of the Bride' section. You might also be interested in their wedding accessories - it includes quite a sumptuous selection of rather fancy fascinators and highly-glamorous hats!

                    Happy browsing!

                    P.S on my way out of John Lewis I popped into their kitchenware section... and because we are on a 'gadgets' thread - just thought I would post a link to this rather stylish looking hot water dispenser (it might be suitable for some people who need a safer/easier alternative to pouring from a kettle).

                      hi
                      we have a one cup boiler kettle. The kettle was getting too heavy for Mick. It's really useful but I dont think it boils quite as hot as a kettle, maybe just me!

                        Thanks for the Wallis tip Kayleigh. As they don’t have standalone shops i tend to forget about Wallis.

                        The Fit and flare dresses are just up my street. I’m looking for something quite summery for the wedding so will keep an eye on Wallis as they get their new stock in.
                        Hope you have a good day X

                          Shrew,
                          Have a look at the Uccello tipping kettle.
                          It’s brilliant for anyone who struggles to lift the kettle.

                            I’ve just read your John Lewis post Kayleigh. Bit slow this morning!
                            You can be my online personal shopper! X
