Post From Alan Thomas

To my amazement, My computer tutor (from Coleshill) and the House Manager (from Towy Boat Club) are very good friends and were hosting the WEA, Stand !!!!Promoting the services, of the WEA.Eleanor on the ITAnd Josie dealing with Face painting and card making.I had WEA (painted on one cheek) with CAG (WEA in Welsh) on the other!!!(Que ODD looks from the Public!!!)Their stall was under cover, a good thing, as it rained quite heavily during the day.We then went up to TESCO, before, returning home, to load the car ready for Dawn and Jason to go to a “car boot” sale in Carew, on Sunday.Today, Sunday, I am hoping to go sailing (this afternoon) it may well be my last chance, before we go to Gambia.(so far it looks fairly “breezey”) so it should be good fun.I need to “revise” my DATABASE, computer knowledge, as I have an exam on Friday !!!!!Tomorrow evening, attend an award ceremony, in Llanelli.Coleshill, Computer class, has won an award from the WEA !!!

BUSY, BUSY BUSY must look harder for a candle with two ends
Went to the Towy Boat Club, on SaturdayPressure Washed the path and concrete apron (ready for some paint “marking out”.Dawn had a “pitch” at a car boot sale, at Carmarthen showground, on Sunday, She took me to the boat club at 9 am, so I could go sailing.Good job I took my paddle out with me, As there was NO wind, the estuary, was like a MIRROR.A session, at the gym, followed, the next day.Hospital check up, on my wrist, on Tuesday. All OK.Had new tyres fitted, on the car, before our journey to Gatwick.On the way back called atLlety Gynin. A newly opened leisure facility in Llangynin.A very nice place, with swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, Gym and coffee lounge. (further buildings will add to this).I went for a swim and will soon return for a swim sauna and try the Jacuzzi.That night was a Committee meeting of Lllanboidy Sports and Social Club to attend.Wednesday another session at the gym. And in the evening mowed the lawn (thanks to the “self propelled” mower) a job I can do!! (but it is hard to KEEP, up with the mower and the lawn is a bit uneven !!!!Today, it is raining, so I can catch up with emailsThis Saturday I am in Haverfordwest (Riverside Market) as part of Adult Learner`s http://www.niace.org.uk/alw/2008/ Week with the WEA http://www.swales.wea.org.uk/index1.html

Excitment--MASSIVE PAIN--reactions
Bank Holiday Monday- I picked up Jason, on the way to Carmarthen Boat Show http://www.welshboatshow.co.uk/show/english/home.aspx ,A very pleasant, afternoon, met some friends, and members of Towy Boat Club, Josie and Paul from White water consultancy http://www.wwc.co.uk/index.php Plus, I, arranged a “Test Demo” of a Windrider trimaran, with http://www.windrider.co.uk/ this is to happen at Dale Sailing http://www.dale-sailing.co.uk/ In the evening, I, went to Towy Boat Club, and went out on “WISP” sailing, During my sail, I managed to damage the TENDONS, in my left wrist, massive “CRACKING” sound accompanied, by, a MASSIVE “Electric” shock, and pain !!!! (using the lowering ropes of the tiller)Later on my wrist was swollen and bruised. Tuesday, it was even more swollen, and my, fingers had gone a GREY colour !!! A trip to the doctors was due !!! then a trip to A&E, to have it X-rayed, As it might have been broken.Result = massive TENDON damage, left with a support bandage and told to rest it. (ME—NO).I went to Coleshill, on Wednesday (yes WEDNESDAY) went to a meeting of Carmarthen Disability Coalition, in Llanelli.Thursday, day of computery stuff.Friday, went to Coleshill Social Centre, Llanelli, as usual, no computer class, but was helping out with, other clients computer problems.The Coleshill web designer has made the website “live” today http://www.coleshillsocialcentre.org.uk/While I was there, a “press” photographer, came to take a few photos, of me and the staff, as the local press are making an article up, after they discovered my Digital Story.Poor man (photographer) he was told I was in a “wheelchair”. He asked for Alan Thomas, I heard him ask, so I said “it was me”, he was looking for- His face was a picture!! As I don’t need to use a wheelchair, in Coleshill, as its all one level and very flat, so just need the use of a walking stick. The staff, had to confirm, that it was ME, he was looking for!!!.Don’t worry, as this happens A LOT, (and I mean A LOT) Plus it is a HILLARIOUS, moment !!! (for me)He took some photos of me with staff and clients, my Digital Story certificate, and me by the Coleshill sign (in a wheelchair)
