The Sunday Blog
15th June 2014
Firstly, happy father’s day to my dad! I bought him Quadrophenia Live in London on DVD. Basically it’s the DVD of the Who concert that we went to see last summer, except we saw them in Liverpool the week before. I’m sure I will eventually get myself a copy so I can relive one of the greatest nights of my life.
Overall I’ve had a pretty relaxed week. Tyrone and I just wanted to rest after our holiday, but we managed to venture into town a couple of times to buy food and Star Wars mugs.
My Kasabian CD finally arrived on Wednesday. I pre-order their new album, 48:13, and the first 1000 to order from MyPlay Direct would receive copies signed by the band. Yep, I was one of those lucky people.
I had an appointment with the disability support team at uni on Thursday. I finally contacted them because I’m worried about the field trips on my course in the third year. I’ve already decided not to go on the residential trip to Greece (cries!) but there will still be lots of day trips which will probably involve lots of walking.
I have to be assessed so that the disability team can understand what is “wrong” with me (I hate using that term) and then they can provide me with the support that I need. My assessor was really understanding and suggested some great ideas for improving my studies. She mainly focused on my pain, and how being in pain affects my ability to learn. She’s ordered me some software that may help to speed up the rate at which I work at, as I regularly find myself taking breaks when I’m in pain.
After my meeting, I caught the train back home to spend the week with my parents. I wanted to be home for father’s day as well as my mum’s birthday (on Tuesday). I’m going back to Liverpool on Thursday as I have a hospital appointment, but my parents are taking me back and are coming with me to the hospital. It’s always good to have some support.
Today we have celebrated father’s day by taking a trip to Ironbridge; the home of the world famous Iron Bridge. I haven’t been there for years which is surprising considering how close I live to there. We had a nice look around the shops and enjoyed afternoon tea at a cafe along the river. I took some pictures on my phone. Sorry for the quality. I really need to start taking my camera out more.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
