Service Resummed. EXHAUSTED
DP builders, http://www.dpbuildingsupplies.co.uk/Llanboidy, to REDO the Disabled Facilities Grant, (that some other “cowboy” builder had complete, with a VERY sub standard, and “UNDERHAND” way ?).
The work will take some time an involve some major unheaval, including us having to MOVE out, due to the complete refurbishment, of the wetroom – including replacing the special floor covering- as well as replacing the (inside and outside) drainage system, with a new septic tank !!.
We went to Kwik-Fit, to change two tyres on our VW Touran, Motability car.
Also booked a train ticket for my travel to Exeter, for the Ataxia UK regional conference. Investigating, Exeter, I have found that there is 3 train stations, in Exeter, and the hotel Thistle http://www.thistle.com/hotels/exeter/ which is on one station, which means a 4 minute journey, from the station on the line from the North, In my view this extra 4 minutes is not worth the extra hassle of rushing for a connection, with luggage !! so a taxi trip will be the order of the day. Sunday- lazying and mowed lawn, the Ataxian WAY !!!
All week has been fine weather, so been doing a bit of gardening, getting a bad back, shoulder and neck, even with this I managed to make things worse, by going out in the KAYAK and climbing Rosebush Mountain.
Monday 1-6-09 attended the Green Dragon Bus http://www.prta.co.uk/prta%20English/home.htm AGM, at Cafi Becca, Efailwen.
It was this day t was confirmed , to me that alot of emails, were not being received by me ?? I have found that since setting up a wireless network, at home, BT internet “kindly” set up a SPAM Filter, which was very sensitive, to alot of email addresses, I have now, turned this service off, and hopefully get back to normal, if I haven’t replied to any of your emails, thats the reason WHY, so resend the email.
During the week, I have had to do alot of relaxing, due to muscle strain and headaches, as well as making many appointments and travel plans, confirming my attendance at many meetings over the next few weeks
First off attending http://www.pembrokeshiretransport.co.uk/content.asp with http://www.prta.co.uk/prta%20English/home.htm, a PACTO meeting
In Letterston Memorial Hall.
Tuesday a meeting of http://carmarthenshiredisabilitycoalition.org.uk/index.html , which is in Swansea, I can get there and back to Llanelli (may catch a train to Carmarthen) so a LATE night might be in order. (pulled at last minute, due to politics ?)
Also making arrangements for m) so a LATE night might be in order.
Also making arrangements for my BBC invite to attend http://www.aberystwythartscentre.co.uk/DS4/
Yesterday and last night we had some heavy rain !! it seems the weather is going from one extreme (HOT) to another (WET, COLD).
One person to encounter this, is Hillary Lister http://www.hilarylister.com/A96C9/Home.aspx
Who I went to see on Wednesday 10th June, in Fishgaurd, but it was VERY HEAVY (and I mean VERY HEAVY) so everybody was out of sight.
