I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

A day trip to London

(viewed 785 times)
Bookmark and Share
Earlier in the month I went down to London with my friend Nicky.
She was working in the morning so we went down about 2pm and I made a lunch for the journey:) We wandered around and had coffee before going to the Adfam 30th birthday celebration and exhibition. Her picture and a brief summary of her story was part of a display to promote awareness of drug and alcohol addiction problems for the families involved, presenting cases as studies rather than numbers. Her story was told more fully in a booklet.
When we got to her picture Eddie Mair was looking at it. Nicky knew he would be there, as he is the patron of Adfam. She recognised his voice and he was thrilled and she got a big hug.
He's a lovely man. Nicky was thrilled too.
It was a very moving event with everyone chatting and sharing experiences.
NB The Hors d'oeuvre were amazing:)

Lovely healthy lunch (I do like your plates) Agree with Twiglet you are looking good and rocking the purple (my students say it is OK for me to use the phrase 'rocking'). The Jenny Joseph poem is one of my favourites and I shall be rocking the purple in the near future (just a year til my 60th)

Good to hear you had a lovely positive time at the exhibition (is Eddie Mair a giant or is Nicky a 5 footer like me?)

Just Tesco plastic :) I try to eat well - control my diabetes as far as possible by diet and a little insulin. And yes Nicky is a little over 5' but not a lot :) It was a very brave thing for them all to do - some quite special people doing amazing things. The thing you realise though is what you see is just the tip of the iceberg! The main point was how addiction affects the family.
