It’s a while since I’ve done a diary update and we’re back in lockdown in Rhondda Cynon Taff. I think it’s a bit easier this time and I am still able to see my fiancé as he’s in the same county as me. However I can’t sleep over at his place at the moment because of the Covid restrictions. I love sleeping out and it’s disappointing not to be able to do it at the moment. I live in supported housing and it’s nice to go somewhere else for a change.
His grandmother has got Covid in hospital though and we’re trying to stay positive at the moment. I don’t know what will happen with lockdown and whether the government is going to bring in a stricter one again. The rules are quite confusing. My partner and I are hoping to rent a house together once the pandemic is over.
I run a group for Taff Ely People First where we get together online and talk about what’s happening and how Covid is affecting us. I am a paid member of staff – working two hours per month. I really enjoy talking to other members.
I’m doing Hate Crime training this week too and next Thursday there is a Zoom meeting about Covid with All Wales People First.
I’m a member of Gig Buddies and they’re doing an afternoon tea party this afternoon – I might go along to that. I have some support hours on Wednesdays too.
