Radio documentary

So today my supervisor in friendly call got a call from the local radio broadcaster here in cork. They want to do a radio documentary about friendly call. They want to talk about how people are experiencing isolation and loneliness, and about the friendly call service. My supervisor asked myself and 2 other volunteers to take part in it.
So on Sunday afternoon, we are going to do it. We’ll all be interviewed, and a documentary will be made for the radio. When it airs I will share it here with you all.
I am so excited! This is a great opportunity!
Its also a great opportunity to get the work of friendly call out there, and show off our great service!

Heard on the radio

I’m listening to the radio. I’m listening to a talk show, from earlier in the week, I think its last friday. A mother is on talking about her 12 year old daughter and her friend, who were almost abducted on their way home from school a few days ago.
It is so scary! 5 foreign guys in their 20’s, and one guy in his 40’s approached them, the guys were in a car, and they beckoned the girls to get in. The girls knew not to, but they panicked, and luckily another man in a van came along and blocked the car and allowed the girls time to run off into a nearby store.
God knows what would have happened if he hadnt come along! The girls may have been seriously hurt, or even killed!
Whats the world coming to? Kids cant even walk a short distance home from school nowadays! Everywhere is so unsafe, nothing and no one is safe these days.
I really shouldnt be listening to such things before bed. Now I definitely wont sleep thinking about this.

batin down the hatches!

So the storm is almost here! The news said by midnight the winds would be really strong and there would be a massive amount of rainfall!
I am so glad to be at mom and dads house!
I think its gonna be a looong night!
I am safe though and thats what matters!
I hope there wont be too much damage from the storm. Today the sun was shining, it was 21 degrees C here! So the calm really did come before the storm!
Anyway, I’m sure the howling winds will keep me up, so I will prepare for a night of little to no sleep!
How are the storms in the USA now?
Spain had a massive one too and 8 people died in it!
I hope nobody dies in our storm!

A storm is approaching

A storm is coming! It will hit ireland tomorrow.

I hope the internet doesnt go out! I would hate that!

It is supposed to be worst in the west of ireland, I live in the south of the country. So maybe we’ll escape the worst of it.

We’re meant to get high winds and rain, lots of rain…

I wont be going out tomorrow thats for sure! Although I think its not meant to hit until thursday evening and then last all day on friday. I do need to go out on friday though.

So who knows I may actually have to walk in the heavy rain! I wonder if the wind is loud if I’ll be kept awake during the night on thursday night?

I hope not!
