  1. Was talking to my drummer Buddy, and my best friend today. Always good for a chat

  2. Finally got my plants in the ground. It looks like mild nights for the next week, so it will give time to toughen up

  3. Chocolate milk in the fridge… Need I say more

what did you plant? i planted sugar snap peas, carrots and a bunch of herbs, i have my potatoes growing and my nasturtium has sprouted.

I’m embarrassed to say, it was just four pot plants. Welcome to Canada, eh

I used to love gardening, I had a whole Zen Garden in the backyard complete with goldfish in a pond and an outdoor fireplace… Then beside the house, I had a garden where I grew tomatoes, carrots, basil, cucumbers… oh, and jalapeno peppers… Love them!!

But, my back is too screwed up now. Unfortunately I don’t do much gardening these days

What is nasturtium?

That’s very interesting. Is this as part of your job, or personal interests?

It is part of my volunteer work on my radio shows i am involved with and also a personal interest,

My clubhouse did a Q&A about a film he made about a number of residents leaving an asylum after many years filmed in Croatia in 2013 and it was very good,

Tomislav was busy on the day of the Q&A but we still had a good chat about the film in his absence, i then asked if the organisers if they could send him some questions I’d wrote and he answered them which i added to the monthly clubhouse magazine article i was working on.

I then mentioned about the radio show and he said he would love to do it and it was a really good interview, 45mins which i will use for two shows i am part of :slight_smile:

it is my highest profile guest on the show so far, the WHO have recently released legislation on the rights based approach and we chat about that, it was very interesting :slight_smile:

The articles in the monthly newsletter are only available for members i’m afraid, (its a confidentiality thing) we have members sharing stories with us about good things in their lives like pets, photography, stuff from different groups,

There is a lot of variety, the format has changed recently to make it look a lot more professional and it looks more like a magazine now. its all edited on canva.

I can share his video he made on frontline stories here

Here is also the link to the latest legislation from the WHO on a rights based approach.

Today was not so good,

  • I played Viking chess but i was not in the mood so i just watched the others play
  • i went to my clubhouse and covered reception but i was feeling really low,
  • Night time was a bit better and i edited my radio show and sent it off
  • Did clothes shopping and spent £350 (the trousers were more expensive but very good quality so should last a very long time)
  • Went to the park and attended a planning meeting for doors open day (i suggested we make it look like the 10oclock news bulletin) ‘thinking big’ :slight_smile:
  • I read some of the book i got called ‘book of hope’ then read more when i went to my local coffee shop sitting outside.
  • I weeded my patio and brushed it & made spag & meatballs

It seems like a lot but it isn’t really, the haardest part was weeding the patio and i’m pretty tired now.
