socs nov 18th so a little late-Oi!

Oi, sup people! Its me with another installment of my crazy life. i’m very very tired! but unable to sleep. i decided that maybe if i shouwered sleep might come you know warm water, relaxation time, etc? but no! not a hope! where am i going wrong! its either no sleep or sound sleep but no inbetween! at least i have the prazazin to try now though, along with a sleep med, zimovane! for four nights dr. barry has prescribed zimovane, so i hope that will help too. i just took my night meds a couple minutes ago. think i will go watch a little tv before i go to bed. not sure what i should watch though. maybe fuller house, or just full house the old show, thats light, and nice and tame. and i need tame! no triggers before bed! tomorrow i am making my xmas cake. i am excited. i wont ice it tomorrow but the main cake will be made. i’ll be sure and post a picture! so watch out for it tomorrow at some point. its been a pretty productive week so far this week on the ILS course. we did team work, personal effectiveness, career preparation, and tomorrow we’ll have health and nutrition, they are cooking soup again though, i’m like i dont want to cook soup again! so many of them on the course wont eat anything they are plain eaters, so a lot of recipes are out but i’m lucky, i get to cook my own stuff so thats good i get to make what i want and i plan on making a lot of different foods. i plan on making chili, and spaghetti bolognes, and lasagna, and red pepper and butternut squash soup, and shepherds pie, and pasta bake, and casserole too! as well as a few cakes and other delicious gooddies thrown in for good measure! do you like to cook or bake? do you have any favourite shows on tv right now or from the past? are you a night owl or a morning person?
catch yall soon guys! ❤ xxx

A new work experience opportunity

i am very excited. an opportunity has come up for me to do a work experience placement as part of one of the modules here at the ILS course. one of the modules is career preparation. and i got asked where i’d like to go on work experience, the tutor couldnt promise me i’d get to go where i wanted, but she said she’d like an idea from me of where that might be. so i’ve always wanted to work at child vision, which is a preschool here where i live for children with visual impairments and other disabilities. and so i told her i’d love to go there. she rang them and they said they’d love to have me work there one day a week. its pretty far away from here, like if i was getting a taxi it would cost me 30 euro or best part of it. but the tutor said the bus that brings people in and out to the day centre here might be able to take me one way. she said let her talk to the guys who drive and get back to me. so she did, and today she told me that if we could organise it for mondays, after my therapy appointment, and i’d get the taxi to drop me to the preschool instead of to abode, and then the bus could pick me up at the end of the day. or course all this has to be run by the big boss first, and i am hopeful she’ll agree to it, otherwise i’m not going to be able to do it. she hopefully will say yes. the thing is if the bus is going to drop me back to abode in the evening, they’ll need to put a third driver on the road, just to get me, because there is no room on the bigger bus, but they do have a smaller van that one person can travel in. so please guys, keep everything crossed for me that this works out!

Tomorrows plans

plans for tomorrow have changed a little bit. I was supposed to bake my xmas cake but now I wont be baking it until Thursday. that is because cora, the staff member whose assisting me cant come in, something personal going on for her not sure what it is, but she wont be able to do it, so i’ll have to do it on Thursday and then ice it next week with mom. the icing is only roll out icing so mom can help me with that. and its best to leave the cake for about a week before icing it. the class are going on a field trip tomorrow, to a place called national learning network, they are going to look at options for further training there should they wish to pursue it since two of the class are leaving soon as their time on the course is up. i’m not going with them because I know about the national learning network already and I have been there to study so I decided I wouldn’t go. so I will just stay behind and do college work, its not like I don’t have a lot of that to catch up on. I said I was having a nearly night tonight but it looks like i’m not. I took meds and tried to lay down but I couldn’t sleep so got up again. its very warm in my room. the heating is turned up full blast and I don’t think I can turn it off. I was going to go have a shower but i’m not sure I should or whether to wait until morning. its just if I don’t sleep good then i’ll be super tired tomorrow morning and wont feel like jumping in the shower. at least I passed my risk assessment though so I can now make tea and coffee in my room. I will post the results of my assessment in another post. kim, the girl doing it had good things to say about my abilities to use equipment and navigate my surroundings confidentally. she also made recommendations for things that could be done to make it easier for me to do things and get around and be safe when making hot food etc. nitro is curled up by my feet, he’s a happy boy tonight. i’m mostly happy too 🙂

Well its morning good morning all :-)

Good morning everyone 🙂

I’m about to have breakfast. I feel much better after going back to bed and going back to sleep for another hour. That did me the power of good. It was just what I needed. Thank you to those of you who commented on my last post. I appreciate the support and friendship. Today is going to be a good day. We are cooking. We are making vegetable soup and chicken Caesar wraps. I will post pictures later of the recipes to.

So, happy Tuesday everyone, hope you have a great day

#weekend coffee share

If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that we did not get much sleep last night. If we got 2 hours it was a lot. Despite all that, we woke up at 6:30 AM, decided to get up and start our day. My thing is there’s no point to laying there thinking, especially when your thoughts are a jumbled mess and swirling around like crazy. So I got up, fed Nitro, let him out, and then had a shower. I would tell you that I ate a very healthy breakfast of some fruit, and now as I type this I am drinking a nice hot cup of coffee.
I would tell you that my plan for today is to go to my parents for dinner, and spend the night. Mom is packing my bag, nice of her to pack for me isnt it? So yeah she’s packing my bag for tomorrow, and as usual tomorrow we’ll go to therapy in the morning and then go on to our independent living skills course.
I would tell you that my sister was away for the weekend with her partner and kids, and she’s back today, they went to Killarney, wish I was with them too!
I hope your all having a fantastic weekend!
