Once again May was a ridiculously busy and sunny month, and I spent far too much time cooped up in a hot car driving to twelve big appointments for the two young adults I care for, formerly known as my two younger children. All these appointments took place during the hours when B is supposed to be attending her adult day programme, or my ‘time off’ as some people mistakenly describe it! I’ve also been distracted by other issues, but today I’m back with a positivity post 😀.
1. Funding for B’s day programme that she loves has been confirmed for another year. It’s not been made permanent yet, but I will keep hoping.
2. A few firsts – B voted with assistance in the recent referendum, she attended an inclusive Zumba class, and she thoroughly enjoyed being pushed around the inaugural AsIAm 5 kilometre Run for Autism. As you can see.
3. I baked for the first time in ages, a healthy carrot and banana bread recipe that I clipped from a newspaper. It was delicious.
4. As a lone female householder, I regularly get ripped off by the people I pay to do the endless maintenance jobs that are needed to patch up this old house. This week I got fed up with waiting and fixed a badly done job myself. It seems all I needed was a screwdriver and a paintbrush – to be used separately though! It’s good to feel competent occasionally 😍.
And that’s it for another week, hope you have a good one xx
