How do i get things sorted
Caz - sorry to hear your news about your Aunt.
TP - glad you had a fab holiday. Now get on with that washing *Paddington Hard Stare*
Lovely weekend had here. Went to see a friend Friday night and we went for an Italian. Saturday I did 18 miles. Went well and now I'm on proper taper. I made a baked cheesecake in the evening for the family meal on Sunday, which was in Swindon. I didn't go mad on chocolate, but I did have some cake. Yum. And yesterday I went for a little run with one of sisters and brother. I have run with my brother before but never my sister and it was lovely to trot out with them both. As I wasn't going down to Bristol for coffee with RS *waves* I hung around chatting with my sis and got home last night. Horrid rainy drive back, and a surprising amount of idiots weaving in and out despite really poor visibility. Not surprisingly, I passed a few accidents along the way.
Today I was in London with the test, visiting Madbid.com who support us, so we were there to collect a big cheque. Which was nice.
Work isn't that important. This will be the last workshop I ever do before I lose my exam marking job, so I don't really care too much about it.
Bear did mention something about it. I'll check with him if he ever raises his head. I'm supposed to be seeing him tomorrow but we never agreed a time, place or activity and I can't currently get hold of him. I need to get to bed soon as I am lifeguarding at 6am tomorrow so I need some sleep.
TP - I may need to pick your brains for questions then
I've seen the trailers for that but wasn't sure if it was a point and laugh thing (bad) or a real look at how difficult relationships are for some.
I didn't think it was point and laugh at all. They all came across really well IMHO so I don't think the editing was done to create a 'freak show'. It also made me think which disabilities or disfigurements are more likely to be off-putting than others.
The guy with the severe facial disfigurement was bound to have more problems in people "looking past the disability" than the very attractive youngish blonde girl in the wheelchair...
And how learning disabilities can impact on relationships... in particular with that pretty much non-communicative girl the LD chap dated a couple of times who never said a word and just stared into space... yet he thought he'd met the woman of his dreams, depite the fact that there was no reciprocity or encouragement of any sort... so reading cues about when it's going well or not etc.
Sorry to hear your sad news ((SC)).
TP its great to have you back from your holidays - sounds like you had a good time.
Hope everyone else is okay...its a lovely sunny day here - very 'Springy', though i'm sure its cool outside. I will try and get out to the Park later for a little run.
Going shopping later - i'd like some flat summery type shoes/pumps. I will resist the temptation to buy any more flip-flops.
I can't really do flip flops SP as every pair I have had cheap or 'spensive have shredded between my toes. I keep one pair of very old Next ones which I can tolerate for a couple of hours if there's not much moving about. I keep them as they're gawjuss and look like they're made of two lines of huge gemstones.
Strangely it seemed to be the LD people who had more difficulty rather than those with PD or disfigurements as the concept of ongoing attraction or not was harder for them to grasp and communicate. I would never have thought of that. I thought the bloke with the facial deformity was a lovely bloke but I was a bit worried about the woman he met. Bit of a mad cat woman thing going on there - dressing up your unhairy cats in clothes ....
I am struggling to get down to anything today. I think it's a double dip post holiday flump.
