Life in lockdown: Ann and Neil, October 2020

We’re just waiting for Neil’s support worker to return with our shopping.  We did the first ‘chit chat’ session online for West Glamorgan People First this morning. It’s like a virtual coffee morning.  Six people turned up – it was great.  We’re doing another one on Wednesday.

We got the form from the council about a house transfer and I’ve phoned the council about the problem in the upstairs flat. We haven’t heard anything yet.

Anne got a mobility scooter the other day – it was her mum’s.  She hasn’t been out on it yet because the weather hasn’t been very good and we don’t know how to get a permit to take it on the bus.

We enjoyed All Wales People First’s birthday event but it was hard at times to get a word in edgeways as so many people were talking!  Anne has had to write a little piece about her experience of being a rep.

We don’t have a date for Anne’s operation yet – but she’ll have to have a Covid test beforehand and we don’t know how we’ll get to the testing centre as it’s up a steep hill.

We’ve got a busy week –  a meeting with the Ambulance service tomorrow, second coffee morning on Wednesday and then on Thursday Neil will be part of the Co-production meeting and he’s got the Citizens’ Panel on Friday
