radio interview

so this afternoon i took part in a radio interview with clodagh the head tutor on the ILS course.
the interview was about abode, doorway to life, which is the name of the organisation that runs the ILS course, and that also provides my respite service to me.
we were discussing the overall organisation structure and all of the services that they offer.
the interview took place on phoenix fm, which is a dublin radio station and the show was called access all areas, which is a weekly show for the disabled, if you want to check the interview out just google phoenix fm access all areas and you should be able to find the podcast link, its march 15th’s show your looking for.
The interview lasted about 20 minutes. It was really good.
I enjoyed taking part in it.

Volunteering

i didnt go to the basement club yesterday. i was supposed to volunteer, tuesday is my day for volunteering. but i didnt. it was because i was seeing eileen at the time i usually volunteer. i rang them and let them know i wouldnt be in. i’ll probably go in on thursday afternoon. just for a chat to some of the other members. a catch up. i dont think there is a lot going on right now in the basement club. but i might go to catch up to see what is happening. maybe there will be groups coming up. i have supervision on the 24th with emily. i get supervision every month. i love supervision. i know i’m weird because most people dont like supervision. but i do. i feel it is a great way to air things and talk about how i’m doing and what is working and what isnt working. emily has good ideas to enhance the admin role and she takes our ideas on board too. i’m thinking i’ll start up the newsletter again. i used to do a monthly newsletter for the members about things that were happening in the basement club. i stopped for a couple months but now i think i’m ready to take that back up again. i need to run it by emily in supervision but i’m sure she’ll agree to it. thats a lot of work but i love researching tings and putting all the info together. so yeah. feeling positive and good about my role as a volunteer.
