6th January: I ended up in hospital twice just before Christmas, for tests. I’m feeling much better now thank goodness.
Christmas was ok, I went to my parents for Christmas Day and then was at home for the New Year. I didn’t feel too isolated because there was lots going on with Gig Buddies events and Pembrokeshire People First did a new year party on Zoom which went on until very late! My neighbours have stayed home too so I didn’t feel alone.
I was re-elected as co Chair for AWPF’s Board. I wasn’t able to attend the memorial service they organised for my friend Linton Gower on Zoom as I was at the hospital, but I did manage to go to Linton’s funeral – albeit virtually. It was live streamed from the funeral home.
Work has finished again because of the new lockdown. I think they will open up soon for takeaways only, but I don’t think I’ll be called in to work.
I saw my boyfriend just before Christmas for a socially distanced walk on the beach.
I have been to A&E again this week with stomach pains – I wish they could find out what is wrong with me. It’s not nice having to go to A&E. I’m diabetic, and they wonder if the pains are linked to that.
I haven’t heard from work and there’s very little to report. I’m keeping as busy as I can, doing my regular Bingo sessions and attending various meetings.
I am attending the Dream Team meeting this afternoon (the People First groups in West Wales meet up regularly to discuss the West Wales Charter for people with learning disabilities). There’s a Stay Up Late meeting this afternoon too.
I haven’t seen my boyfriend recently but we’re still chatting every day. I slipped on the ice earlier this week – that was painful!
