I know I'm a grumpy sod, but it's the pressure I feel under to make things happen, that can make certain folk LOVE/HATE Xmas! It kind of makes me grumpy. But now its January, and I really am excited.
Disability Sheffield are going to host the Record of Involvement, and so yesterday I zoomed and I really mean it! It's not often I go faster than my wheels can turn? (I hope you understand?? them that cycle might?) But I jumped on a train from Dore, to Sheffield. And then a tram, to the Circle. The journey took me 40minutes :) and cost me didly. Once there Emily and I were joined by Krill whose a software manager/developer/lecturer, Mark from SCBIRT, and Chris from the Council. My heart melted at the gorgeous things that folk told Krill about 'little ol me' :D And it was fantastic that although the ------- (I don't think I should say whose funding it) Everyone wants me to 'own' it, when the digital version is finished which is really nice :) THANK YOU. I think this has been Coproduction at it's best, everyone has brought different skills and ideas/ venues/equipment/contacts/volunteers/money/encouragement.
My journey home was not quite as successful, like an a* I stood at the wrong platform ! Cold and wet, from the drenching I'd got waiting for a tram. But with only, 7mins to Dore. And remember the new street lights I was cursing??? Absolutely marvellous they are!!What with my pedal assist, as well. I was home in a jiffy. But my brain kept switching to the poor guy who died this week, when his mobility scooter fell into a river, as I pedalled blindly behind Totlet Rise, on the designated cycle path I might add, that has absolutely no lighting.
