I must admit I got rather a lot of nice comments about how appropriate the tshirt I was wearing yesterday was for the "Choice Unlimited" Roadshow.
But I have to admit the best compliment I recieved was not on what I wore - it was about something I had written. Not only that but it was a post on this very blog. I found that out by sheer coincidence.
What happened was - I had been walking around the stalls at the roadshow, offering to give different organisations write ups, when I came to a stall run by DEAP (an organisation set up to empower disabled people when it comes to navigating their way through the world). The gentleman I spoke to obviously didn't realise we had communicated before through his work as a City Councillor.
Anyway - I told him that I have a blog, etc. When he had found a pen and paper I told him the address of this website. His next words stunned me - "Where do I know that web address from? I am sure I have seen it somewhere."
A search through his memorybank revealed that one of his colleagues at DEAP had printed my post about Physical Disability, Mental Health, and Cyberbullying off and waved it under his nose. I was stunned when he said it was a good article.
(On my way home yesterday evening I got myself a Chinese takeaway. I got two Fortune Cookies as part of it - in the order I opened them they said, "You will be honoured soon by somene you respect." and, "Determination with get you through this.".
