Woohoo its Friday

Friday--signals, a weekend of my partner having ME say to her "I WANT TO GO THERE HERE AND EVERYWHERE" , in my "wheelie"


I want to go all places and to see how they are, really accessible, and if not up to scatch tell the people in charge............

Today I went to the Social Centre (School, as we call it) my CLAIT exam (spreadsheets has got one "minor" correcction (which can be done next week)
I wasnt too bothered about doing it today as it was nearly the end of the lesson.
I have just lost out on a couple of active manual wheelchairs (on ebay) I have a main (LOMAX 2active, in Silver) but want one to act as a second chair I can use abroad and for general outdoors "hard work) the LOMAX is too "nice" for that sort of thing. Alan

Confused ????

Today, in the post, I recieved an application form from Leonard Cheshire for Workability.
It says I need a referance from "Employment/Job Search Agency" I have never been to one of these !! Since becoming ill (and giving up my job) I have never given work another thought (and any advice given to me has been that I CANNOT undertake employment because of my illness and its deteriation).
Been out in the garden doing "greenfingered" things
I have been out on my tricycle for an hour today, as the sun has got its hat on.
This might be of interest to you,
Cardiff UWIC are having a Wheelchiar Sports (where people can try out this activity) 14th &15th July 2006 more information contact

I know, I know, the links dont work (or any photos).

Dont think I will get time to go out on my tricyle, today.

I will be in the Local paper (Carmarthen Journal) following on from my complaint to Mcdonalds about wheelchair access at that site.

Once a week I attend Coleshill Social Centre, Llanelli. For disabled people . I am studying CLAIT PLUS for the computer (just done the exam for module 2 (spreadsheets)

Lets try again,

I try and get out to the cinema as often as I can , been here quite a few times, went on Saturday to see "Over the Hedge"
