It seems a long time since I attended any sort of committee meeting, but this afternoon Jane and I joined the group that plans the meetings of the Oxfordshire MND Association, thinking about next year.... I should have known better, Jane says, and kept my mouth shut. However, a leopard's spots and all that. Anyway I've landed up with some pretty tall orders. For some reason the rest of the group - all women - didn't leap at my suggestion of trying to get a meeting at Williams F1 HQ round the corner from here, with its collection of racing cars and rather plush conference suite. Shame!
Instead, I've got to see if there's a possibility of a disabled-friendly boat trip down the Thames or, even worse, finding "someone to make us laugh". I admit it's not so difficult to make those of us with MND and emotional incontinence laugh (or cry), but for carers and families - not so easy. So any suggestions welcome - only you really need to know them in order to give some sort of link. All Jane's been asked to do is arrange a trip to our favourite Aston pottery... Keep your mouth shut next time, Michael!
