Last week I mentioned an exhibition opening I was to attend. That whole day did go to plan thankfully, including an hour kip and getting back to the city with 10 minutes to spare to see Dylan Moran at Hamer Hall. Hilarious!
These were my two favourite portraits in the exhibition. I didn’t even take one of mine.
The Opening Doors project will launch its website early December. I’ll share the link then.
Well, needing a calm lunch as my regular girl Wednesday has taken leave to go to Disneyland. With a different carer than usual. I suggested a postcard for her favourite client and I was told she would be too busy. I was serious the first time I suggested it but after that I was just teasing her.
Yesterday, after going to the AGM (Annual General Meeting) I had my nice monthly migraine for the rest of the day! You may wonder if going to the advocacy group I attend e dry on this worth the pain? It’s necessary connected. To network and connected to ‘my’ even if all the time I’m reminded I don’t fit in with ‘normal’ people that I am always desperate to connect with in some long-lasting way. I am often left feeling even more alone. Or in some way unworthy. Yeah, it’s super!
Today’s offering is a bolognaise arancini with side salad and medicine.
Again, another Wednesday where lunch may not even happen. I have a long day planned. Fingers crossed it goes to plan. Which means maybe the best way to explain, is to share?
Today, a carer to help me get it together and get out for the day. So far, so good. Make a call or two over breakfast. My second carer arrives and we depart, deliver a container to my local cafe and pay for tomorrow’s late lunch for my masseuse Caroline and I to share. Off to my chiropractor. Then the pet shop. Bosley has found a home! Yay! My girl-Wednesday and I visit Nelly’s Arc every week. It’s where I found my Mika.
Nelly’s Arc is supplied by the Neko Lounge.
Next, I’m off to the city to go to an exhibition opening. I participated in a project about what a home means to people with disabilities. A group of us were interviewed, filmed for a website, photographed in our homes then an exhibition was created with photos also. It’s great to be part of something useful to a broader community, that gives people an insight into the lives of people with disabilities.
Then, off home for a kip! I actually have scheduled a kip for special reasons. Alarm! (I hate setting an alarm! But up, early dinner. Keep cup of medicine then a tram to the city. Meeting Caroline at Hamer Hall to see a comedian. Dylan Moran! I’ve seen him twice already so I already know he is very funny. If you are not familiar with his work you should check him out. He was also in the very hilarious series called Black Books. I am overdue to re-watch this show. I shall let you know next Wednesday.
I did get to sort of have lunch on the train into the city. I think I survive by preparing things in advance for busy days. I had a croissant with ham & cheese. That I baked, froze, defrosted then completely flattened in my panini press!
