Fashion Boy has returned home after hi trip to Perth for the State Youth Parliament full of stories and full of beans, caffeine beans that is! Coffee and coke and endorphins seem to have fuelled his experience! He said it was Fantastic. When I asked him how many friends he'd made he reeled off the names of about 20 kids, including Scarlet from Bridgetown, which is handy seeing as his grandparents live in Bridgetown and we go there often.
I haven't heard many of the details yet but from the sound of it he had a great time, which is exactly what I was hoping for, having been on some similar things when I was a kid. I met one of my best friends, Sally, on a Creative Writing and Drama Camp when we were both in year 12 and 28 years later we are still really close.
I've got some sort of cold, itchy throat, cough, runny nose, mild headaches so I slept all morning and played computer Scrabble all afternoon, in preparation for my return to the Scrabble Club tonight for the first time in a couple of months. I lost my first game after Marg made Circlets on a triple word score to rack up 100 points with her first move, leaving me playing catch-up for the rest of the game. I won the other two games, despite not realising that Gail had made a 7 letter word with her first move that was spelt "MEATING"!!
In between the computer and human word battles I had an appointment with my therapist.
I seem to be getting somewhere, albeit slowly!!
