My 19th Birthday
I was lucky that the last Circle of Strength meeting was just after my birthday, so we got to have more birthday celebrations. We had yummy cheesecake and took some fun photos…I especially liked the one of Lydia photo bombing me and Amanda. Thanks for the pressies everyone.
Well this would have to be the biggest event on the schedule for the last couple of months. It was lots of fun to be with family and friends to help celebrate Kristina’s Hens Party. I saw lots of people I hadn’t seen for ages. All the bridesmaids were there at the Bacchus High Tea, we had scones and cakes and I had a coke. I felt pretty special there and I got to wear a black dress, high heels, and had a Bridesmaid sash so everyone knew I was one of the bridesmaids. It was great to see everyone. It really made me start to get excited for the wedding, not long to go now.
In July Mum and I went to Sydney with our dear friends Allison and Michaela. Although we had to go there for a Chromosome 18 Committee Meeting, the real reason was to go to see the Strictly Ballroom stage show. Strictly Ballroom was epic!!! The acting and dancing was amazing. It was so great to share this experience with Michaela. Mum and I stayed with Adam and Sarah and Doris the rabbit. Michaela and Alison stayed at a hotel.
My band The Outsiders have performed again. We played at the Kawana Pub and it was a half hour set. It was awesome and I love it. I sang one song called the Outsider Blues. We have written our own lyrics for this song. I play the marimbas for the other songs. We also performed at the end of semester at TAFE. When are we next performing you ask? on 11 October we will be performing at Fair Day Out in Eumundi and 31 October is when we will be performing with the SCCITR Project Production. More information will come soon. This is our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TheOutsiders909
Sunshine Troupe Happenings
On 2 August the Sunshine Troupe had a big 3 hour rehearsal for our first performance as part of the Sunshine Coast Community Inclusive Theatre Restaurant (SCCITR) which is happening on 31 October. We rehearsed some dances. It was fun and I am so looking forward to the first live performance. I
have no nerves at all cos I’m too cool for school.

Gramps’ Visits in June and August
Gramps stayed with us and helped mum and I out in June/July which was great. He couldn’t help himself but had to come back again in August. He got very ill while he was here the second time but he still managed to take care of me. He took me to the Ginger Factory and we had a visit to Michaela’s place.
In July we went to Florence’s performance of ‘She Walks Beside His Shoes’ which was in Brisbane. It was really good and I’m glad we were able to show our support for her.
My TAFE Routine
TAFE is going ok this term and I’m going 4 days a week. Monday is teaching art with Craig. Wednesday I’m learning music, Thursday it’s art, and Friday it’s drama. Tuesdays are when I go to Blackall Range Care and do a few activities, including lawn bowls, ten pin bowling and croquet.
Thanks everyone for your time and help
