Just in case anyone is interested I wrote a new blog post this morning about my, very, personal response to this.
Here's the link

    A very thoughtful - and thought-provoking piece, Slosh. I enjoyed reading it, and I certainly 'get' the point you make.

    just read your blog Slosh and it was very interesting, and felt as if I was reading about me and my own feelings on my own situation in many places. :)

    Slosh, I thought you explained things extremely clearly. This would be most thought-provoking to show people who have no idea how much of a challenge living with any restrictions can be!

    And your jewellery looks beautiful by the way! You should be extremely proud that you can produce such wonderful bespoke items.

    Thank you GraceB, something just "clicked" (not physically ), on Saturday , and it was something I just had to write down.

    Thanks as well for the compliments on my jewellery.

    Slosh that is so lovely, you are seeing what is important in life and its not always being able to do what we used to...I am a great believer in writing the positives down and reading them when needed..and I adore the jewellery...x

    Lovely blog Slosh.

    I enjoyed watching the last leg and many of the sports. I particularly loved the tennis. I didn't see any gymnastics yet am aware of several high performing gymnasts with downs syndrome or amputations. They are amazing to watch.

    My Daughter has just moved to E17 and I saw the market listed when checking out her flat.

    ps; love the fuschia's
