WAITING FOR A RAINBOW: CATCHING DREAMS – SUNDAY 10TH MAY 2015

“I’m ready to come out of my shell and face the world; how am I going to do it, I just don’t know”.

Sunday 10th May

Well, here goes the end of another weekend; time to bring on another working week. Argh! This weekend has been very productive.

Yesterday, I went shopping and I had Pret a Manger lunch with my Mum. Today, I went to Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk with Ann. And oh my goodness, the hall is beautiful.

Oxburgh is full of English countryside with lambs, and kids, trees, dens, rivers, dams and wooden cravings. The hall is beautiful too; it has very fine Medieval, Tudor and Victorian architecture. The hall even has a priest hole where visitors can go into, but it’s a very tight corner. I went inside and I took a long time to get out as I took so many pictures of the hole. After I go out, Ann was tempted to go in, but she didn’t; that was when I discovered Ann’s fear of tight corners. I don’t blame her to be honest. If you feel claustrophobic, you shouldn’t feel or be pressured to do things you don’t want to.

In between our day out, Ann and I played games after we had a picnic lunch. There was a games cupboard where visitors can play within the grounds. The games we played were noughts and crosses, jenga and ring toss. Also, we sang along to songs (mostly Motown) when we travelled to the hall and back home. Gosh, it’s so much fun having a cousin; we generally have a blast.

Song #1: Dancing in the Street by Martha and the Vandellas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWS1j7ezqTg

This favourite, upbeat song of mine is one of the songs Ann and I played on our playlist. Originally  this was the likely song I was going to use to conclude ‘Waiting For A Rainbow’, but I’ve put it there as it shows that this song is opening it’s new doors to me. Every time I listen, I love to imagine myself, walking alone in a street into the setting sun, underneath a lamp post. I don’t know why, but that’s my imagination. He-he. 🙂

In between work, Ann and home, I’ve been planning on possible future holidays; Ann and I are thinking of going away on a weekend holiday to Liverpool in the summer holidays. We’ve been talking about it for a year and I cannot wait to go (if we can the plans in full swing). Also, I’m still trying to find holiday groups and NAS support workers who I could travel with for holidays too. I’m not sure how it’ll go, but I hope I’ll soon be coming out of my shell no time soon.

Song #2: I’m Coming Out by Diana Ross: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbYcte4ZEgQ

This song explains me, bringing out my confidence and bringing more positive experiences into my life. 🙂

This song explains about me, slowly coming out of my shell in my study and social lives. And truly, I want the world to know and I’m going to let it show! 😉
