Hi everyone. I’m on a high at the minute, my local council have approved my grant for my clos-a-mat (I think that’s how you spell it), it only took about two weeks for the decision and I’d expected months. And I’ve got a little job, voluntary, in a charity shop. It’s only 3 hours a week but that’s enough. I thoroughly enjoyed my first shift. I was totally knackered afterwards, legs, feet and hips were really painful but next time I won’t wait until I need to sit down, I’ll sit between customers. It was just nice feeling useful and interacting with the staff and public. I was very surprised and quite saddened by the number of older people who seem to come in as they’re lonely and just need a friendly face to chat to.
Things are falling into place, I’m getting a new routine and it’s a really good feeling. I hope you’re all well, it’s raining here but I’m not letting it get me down. Take care.
