This is not a whine and I personally don't feel I ' need to get a life ' tho, you may do. I have my home, my family, my garden, an active mind, I'm sourounded by nature. What more could I need?
The thought of travelling to and across London would never have appealed to me and the letters A G M in combination would send me running.
We are, as we keep saying, all different, and I can see that meeting up would be fun. We are all at different stages of PMR/GCA, but how will you manage it when most of us agree that making a bed is enough to make us want to get in it.
In my case it would involve taxi to station. Then hoping there's a seat free on the platform while I wait for the train. Two hours on train means getting moving at the other end may take a while. Then walking the length of Victoria Station in crowds of people. Even with a stick I will feel insecure. Will I make the distance without sitting down? Will there be a seat when I need one? Better take the wheelchair! I will need someone to push, Hubby can't travel so Son will need to take a day off work- expensive! Two train tickets needed.
I have now been active for at least 3 hours time for a rest. Book into hotel. The only way I can see this happening is to travel up the day before- 2 days off work for Son, 2 people in hotel.
Next day cross London to venue, underground out, must be taxi.
Sit for hours in a hard chair ( will there be beds? ) and at last meet some what I already know to be lovely people.
Return to hotel to recover. Next day repeat journey in reverse. Another night in hotel for 2 people.
This is me just coming from the south coast not the north of England or the wilds of Western Super Mare!
I'm exhausted just thinking about it. I read about You Lot going on days out, holidays even and I wonder how you manage.
I hope everyone going has a marvelous time and has enough spoons in hand to get through, please tell the rest of us all about it. I for one am in awe!
