Happy thanksgiving! How is your day going? What are your plans for it?
Do you like thanksgiving and all the celebrations? Are you cooking or going to a family get together?
I hope you all enjoy thanksgiving, and that the day is special for everyone!
When I go to colorado next May, Sarah and I are going to do a thanksgiving dinner, so that I can have all the yummy foods associated with it.
I cant wait for that!
I love turkey and stuffing, but I’ve never tasted green bean casserole! So I need to taste that!
Anyway have a super day everyone! Dont eat too much lol!
So I told my work colleagues yesterday that I was off to Colorado next summer!
they were really excited for me! And so jealous too!
My colleague trish was telling everyone about it! She made me laugh because her excitement was palpable, you’d sware it was her who was going!
When I told them I’d be traveling alone, they couldnt believe it!
Another volunteer said I am an inspiration! I told her no, I am not! I just like to be independent and not allow my disability to hold me back!
Trish said I should make a blog about my travels! I didnt tell them I already have a blog! They dont know about my struggles with MH issues.
It was lovely though to go in and be able to share my good news! And the more I shared with them the more excited I got! It was so cool and I just love the feeling of excitement that I get when I think of going next year!
I’m saving up money now for my spending money. I’ll be saving hard for the next few months! I want to have a lot so I can do things, enjoy myself, and not have to worry about how much I have or can spend!
I just got off the phone with the travel agent, I have booked my flights to colorado!
I am going next May! For two weeks!
I leave on May 20th and I come home on June 3rd!
I am flying cork to london heathro, then on to denver, in total its 13 hours of traveling each way!
I have a stop over in London for about 2 and a half hours, before I fly on to denver
I will be getting assistance in all of the airports, the travel agent has already spoken to the airlines for me about that.
I’m flying to London with Aer lingas, and then united airlines for my flight on to denver!
I am super super excited! This is going to be fab!
I cant wait to meet Sarah and I know we’re going to have an amazing time together!
Her mom has already said she’s going to take me to some touristy places in colorado!
So I’ll take lots of pictures and post them!
It is so good to have a trip to look forward to for next summer! And I’m not going too late in summer either, so the weather wont be overly hot but it will just be nice.
This is a great way to start my Saturday!
I’ve some amazing news to share! I am so excited!
Next May I am going to america! To denver in collorado! I am going to visit my friend Sarah! I’ve known sarah since 2012, we became friends when we both joined a list for blind people with mental illness. Our friendship blossomed and from there we became best friends!
She has did and ptsd, and she is blind like i am!
I’m going to go visit her and celebrate her birthday with her!
I’ll be staying at least 2 weeks, but it could be longer we arent sure yet as we still have to firm up dates.
But later this week I am going in to book my flights!
I am on air! I’ve always wanted to meet her and now, finally its happening!
We’re going to have so so much fun together!
Our insiders will have a blast! I know Liz is looking forward to meeting her good friend Brandy in sarahs system. They will probably go mental and have lots of alcohol!
Also the kids are excited to meet their friends in sarahs system too!
Its going to be an epic trip!
I’d been thinking about it for a while, and last night I finally got to ask Sarah how she felt about me coming, since we face timed last night.
She was all for me coming! And her mom offered to pick me up at the airport and drop me there to go home again! And we’ll even go stay with her mom in the mountains for a few days too!
I told her I’ll go to the mountains as long as bears dont eat me! Lol!
Since I am 40 next year, my birthdays in april, and sarahs is in may, the trip will be in between both of our birthdays, and I thought this would be a nice birthday present to give myself when I turn the big 40!
So whose excited for me?
I think I’m going to burst with excitement!
Happy labour day to all of my american readers! I hope you enjoy the holiday, whatever your doing for it!
If your canadian and its labour day there too, well then, I hope you also enjoy it.
I never really did understand what labour day means. We dont celebrate that holiday in ireland.
Has anyone got any plans? What do you even do on that particular day?
Well I do hope you all have an enjoyable day and have a whole lot of fun!
Happy fourth of July to anyone who lives in the US! I hope you have a lovely day whatever your doing. We dont celebrate the fourth of July in ireland, so I am going to live vocariously through you all today.
I hope you all have a fantastic day! 😀
Do let me know what your plans are!
And enjoy the day!
traump came to ireland last week. i was so sick of hearing about him on our news. everything was trump this and trump that. like he’s some sorta god or something. he’s a fucking idiot. i cant stand him. he’s a baffoon. A clown. I hate his arogant ways. He’s so arogant. So damn full of himself. All you hear on our news is how the US wants to trade with ireland, at least that is what he was saying. He met our taoiseach, thats our leader of the country, his name is leo varadka or however you spell it. He also met our president. they all had a big dinner in trumps resort in county clare. He has a resort there. and they made a huge deal out of his sons going to the bar and buying a round of drinks for everyone in there. stupid fucking idiots the lot of them. he was only here two nights but you’d think it was a lot longer there was so much hullabaloo about it on our news. He played a round of golf at his resort. He should just stay away. We didnt want him here. there were lots of protests, lots of people hate him and didnt want him visiting our country at all.
