The tardis toilet

There’s a toilet in the park nearby which thankfully, I’ve never had to use. I call it the tardis as it looks a bit space-age. I find it a bit weird and rarely see anyone using it. It’s often out of order and takes a 20p piece, which most people don’t carry with them – especially now. I wonder how long coin-operated machines will continue post-Covid. I suspect we’ll see many more contactless machines in the near future.

The ‘tardis’ locks and unlocks automatically and I sometimes wonder if anyone’s ever been trapped inside. I don’t think I could summon up the courage to go in it. Over the years I’ve had various friends knock on my door to use our loo to avoid going in.

I heard an amusing story the other day about a lady who took her grandson on a day trip and used one similar to this. The grandson decided to make a run for it out of the door leaving her on the toilet in full view of a crowded area. To add insult to injury (or vice versa) the toilet’s automated cleaning system then kicked in. These things self-clean (this one apparently with internal sprinklers). Luckily she thought it was funny!

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
