Traveling Chocolate Adventures
Busy, looking for that CANDLE!!!
Ataxia South Wales, had a meeting , in Llansamlet, Swansea. A lot of people attended, with a fair few new members.
Fundraising ways and social meetings were topics (a day out Bowling and a meal, seemed popular).
On Friday 20-2-09, Dawn took me to Coleshill http://www.coleshillsocialcentre.org.uk/index.html as I forgot to ring the bus driver, to ask him to pick me up !.
Didn’t stay to long, and we went to the Beefeater in Pemberton, Llanelli, for lunch.
I managed to go out on my tricycle, as the weather has been quite good.
Wednesday 25-2-09 I attended a morning meeting of the Green Dragon Bus http://www.prta.co.uk/prta%20English/home.htm (to discuss the Connect service), this was held in Caffi Becca, Efailwen.
I then went to Carmarthen to book train tickets, to Sheffield. Going uo to meet some Ataxian friends.
While, in Carmarthen, I went to Kwik-Fit, to check out a tyre on the car, it had a large thorn embedded in the tread, result a NEW tyre.
A good thing I had it changed, before our journey, this weekend.
Thursday night, was spent at Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan. Attending the show by “Karen Darke” http://www.karendarke.com/ plus I managed to get my photo taken with her . My first wheelchair (Loamie) was bought from Karen http://www.flickr.com/photos/alanroygbiv/3324758905/
Coleshill, on Friday,
Speech Therapist came to see me and arrange some meetings, over the next few weeks.
Saturday 28-2-09, travel to NEC, Birmingham for an Event http://www.destinationsshow.com/birmingham-welcome.html
We (Dawn, Jason and I) made some good investigations, into travel to many countries and made a few friends http://www.flickr.com/photos/alanroygbiv/3324706953/ .
We spent the night in a Travelodge in Frankley, Birmingham, (review on http://www.tripadvisor.com/ as soon as I can) as we had booked tickets to Cadbury World http://www.cadburyworld.co.uk/CadburyWorld/Pages/CadburyWorld.aspx for Sunday 1-3-09.
Yes, it was a CHOCOLATE “overload” for all of us, with plenty of fun.
A FANTASTIC day out, with some FREEBIES and tasters.
The tour takes approx 3 hours, and the place is very busy but very interesting. Its worth booking tickets well in advance, of you visit
Wheelchairs have excellent access every where, with one cart, on Cadabra suited to wheelchairs
During the last few days, my Digital Story, made FOR THE E-Inclusion Event in Vienna, Austria has been sent to me, see it at http://www.vimeo.com/3281185
