    Phew! What a day!

    Extremely busy, but not with what I wanted to do.

    And people getting in the way by not doing what they're ****** well supposed to! Grrr.

    Am shattered now.


    And I just realised that the small homemade fairy cake I ate at a meeting yesterday evening, my first cake in weeks and weeks, must have had some butter in it.

    I just didn't think.

    This dairy-free thing is harder than I thought.

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful
    and glorious day!




    Belfast Children's Festival is an annual international festival for
    children aged 0 - 17 years and their accompanying adults. Events
    take place both in and out of school time for schools, groups and
    families to attend.

    20th Belfast Children's Festival 9th - 14th March 2018



    The 2018 Belfast Children's Festival is a 6 day birthday party as
    the festival turns 20! Our festival theme is ‘FAMILY’, so dive into
    the packed programme of theatre, visual art, music, dance,
    literature, workshops and talks, guaranteed to inspire joy,
    creativity and curiosity. Many festival events sell out so book early
    to avoid disappointment >>>

    Who We Are

    Welcome to Young at Art.

    Young at Art is one of Northern Ireland's leading children's arts
    not-for-profit companies and home of the Belfast Children's
    Festival and Young at Art Events. From its base in Belfast's city
    centre, Young at Art coordinates not only an international festival
    and an events agency, but also a wide variety of projects that
    encourage children and young people under 18 to enjoy the arts.

    Young at Art believes passionately that every child should have the
    right to access exciting and original creative experiences,
    regardless of who they are or where they come from. As such
    most of its programme is universally accessible. Behind the scenes
    work such as the Creative Child engagement programme try to
    overcome barriers to access - economic, educational, social and
    physical.

    The company believes that arts provision should be FOR children
    and young people as well as BY children and young people. In
    this, it promotes child-inspired work by professional artists with an
    emphasis on performance and exhibition content over participatory
    activities.

    About Disabled Access Day

    In 2015 Disabled Access Day began as a day to celebrate good
    access and created opportunities for people to try something new.
    The day was about highlighting the fantastic access that already
    exists in places, such as touch tours, relaxed performances,
    sensory experiences, level access and of course a warm welcome!

    When is the next Disabled Access Day?

    The next Disabled Access Day takes place in 2019. If you are
    interested in getting involved, sign up today to receive all the news
    from the Disabled Access Day team.

    Who is behind Disabled Access Day?

    Disabled Access Day is powered by Euan’s Guide: a listing and
    review site that helps disabled people, their friends and families
    know which venues that are accessible.

    Kiki MacDonald, Co-Founder of Euan's Guide, explains: "We were
    inspired by the idea of Disabled Access Day and the potential for it
    to increase the numbers of conversations between venues and
    disabled people, as well as to raise the profile of disabled access.
    We were delighted by the backing from many venues,
    organisations and businesses that got involved, in particular their
    appetite to improve their own accessibility and to get more
    feedback from disabled people."

    Find out more about Euan's Guide on their website
    www.euansguide.com.

    https://www.disabledaccessday.com/




    Welcome to Euan's Guide

    Euan's Guide features disabled access reviews from disabled
    people and their friends and families.

    "The aim of Euan's Guide is to empower disabled people by
    providing information that will give confidence and choices for
    getting out and about."

    Save the Date - Disabled Access Day 2018

    St Paul's will be hosting Disabled Access Day on 10 March 2018
    with special tours and events especially designed to put disabled
    people right at the heart of Cathedral life. There will be free entry
    all day for disabled people and their friend, helper or carer.

    Designed especially for disabled adults and children, visitors can
    enjoy a full programme of tours, talks and workshops. Multimedia
    guides that have British Sign Language, subtitles, audio described
    and family tours will also be available, as they always are. The
    North Transept ramped entrance will be open all day.

    Described TouchTours are also available by our Cathedral Guides
    and these should be booked in advance (more details below). BSL
    interpreted tours are also available upon request.


    A visitor takes a Touch Tour of the Cathedral

    For the second year, the Cathedral will feature a special 8.30am
    early opening for people who would appreciate a quieter time.

    From 10.30am to 3pm the Schools and Family Learning and
    Collections teams will have pop-up stalls with artefacts to discover
    and opportunities to dress-up for all visitors.

    All visitors are also invited to take part in the Cathedral’s daily
    cycle of worship, with a BSL signed Eucharist service at 12.30pm
    and Choral Evensong sung by the full Cathedral Choir at 5pm.



    Whilst the next national Disabled Access Day is not until 2019, St
    Paul's wanted to build on the momentum generated in the last few
    years and the enthusiasm of staff and volunteers to continue this
    as an annual Cathedral event.

    This is my 40th day alcohol free. I'm happy that I don't miss it - Maybe I'm not completely lost! Crisp reduction has been major, but not complete, and sugar free is also on 40 days ... target for both is Easter which will be 60 days.

    Walking yesterday, trousers felt looser (unless belly has dropped more) , but no more weight lost ....

    Hope that the rest of the Markdown March Marauders are all ok ....

    A quick fly-by as off to another practice.

    Yes, still dry, though this week has been a challenge with people not doing their practice!
    And then asking for help in a panic! Just sort yourselves out, people!
    69 days sans alcohol!

    Minimal sugar......just the very occasional treat like that fairy cake.

    And dairy-free, barring unintentional minor mistakes! Being dairy-free sort of keeps you off the big sugary things too...... cakes, pannacottas, pancakes, etc.

    Haven't had any crisps since 1st Feb but don't miss them at all.

    Will get very little chance to eat tomorrow so will use that as a fast day.

    Bye for now.........will probably pop in later this afternoon.

    Pearls before Poppies



    Pearls for Life



    One hundred years ago in February 1918, Lady Northcliffe, wife of
    the newspaper baron, appealed to the women of Britain and the
    Empire to donate a pearl to the British Red Cross in memory of a
    life lost or changed forever by the war.

    The appeal gained extraordinary momentum and nearly 4,000
    pearls flooded in from across the world.

    The pearls were made into 30 necklaces, which were auctioned at
    Christie's - the appeal raised nearly £100,000.

    The story of the Red Cross Pearls has been told in a new book by
    Rachel Trethewey, Pearls before Poppies.

    The British Red Cross saw one of the largest humanitarian
    responses in its history last year and is once again calling on
    people across the UK to show their support by donating an item of
    jewellery.

    Christie’s will select items of donated jewellery for an Auction and
    Gala Dinner at the Savoy on 2 July 2018, to celebrate 100 years
    since the launch of the first British Red Cross Pearl Appeal.

    About World Glaucoma Week



    Welcome to World Glaucoma Week 2018

    #glaucomaweek2018

    As a major collaboration between the World Glaucoma Association
    and the World Glaucoma Patient Association, this series of
    activities globally alerts people to have regular eye (and optic
    nerve) checks to detect glaucoma earlier, thus contributing to sight
    preservation.



    A wide range of publicity-attracting activities around the world
    involve ophthalmologists, optometrists and other eye care workers
    in hospitals, universities, clinics, private practices include many
    private individuals, especially those with glaucoma or with family
    members with glaucoma. Glaucoma societies and glaucoma patient
    associations all participate.

    Each year we adopt a common theme that is then adapted to local
    conditions; this unites our efforts. Recently we have concentrated
    on First Degree Relatives (FDRs) as they have a ten-fold increase
    in life-long glaucoma risk. If FDRs were to act on this information
    with regular glaucoma optic nerve tests, it would be likely to save
    a great deal of sight.



    The glaucomas cause progressive damage to the vision; they do so
    without warning till later in the disease process and while
    treatment is effective in arresting the disease, it cannot reverse
    damage already present. The earlier the diagnosis, the less
    damage done and the more vision there is to save >>>

    https://www.wgweek.net/about-world-glaucoma-week/




    Campaigns

    Growth in glaucoma prevalence 2018

    World Glaucoma Week 2018 (11-17 March 2018) will focus on the
    prevalence of glaucoma in the UK and globally with an emphasis
    on the importance of regular eye health checks to detect glaucoma
    in the early stages. We will work with a range of partners to
    encourage eye health checks throughout life.

    Glaucoma and dry eye syndrome 2018

    Dry eye affects 50 to 60 per cent of people with glaucoma. If you
    suffer from dry eye syndrome, you will know how debilitating dry
    eye can be and the impact that it can have on quality of life. It
    affects one in three people over the age of 65. Surprisingly many
    people do not know that they have the condition. We want to
    correct that with our campaign to run through The IGA National
    Glaucoma Awareness Week 2018 (4-10 June 2018).

    Yorkshire Beard Days 2018



    Message from TBBC Hon President



    A Beard Is A Most Personal Possession, and every person with
    facial hair should try growing a beard at least once in adult life.

    Letting a beard grow out is the most natural and ecological
    expression of confidence and character. Far from being a mask to
    hide behind, the growing of a beard changes one’s appearance
    completely, and managing this change against peer pressure can
    strengthen and enhance one’s persona.

    Unlike other body-modification such as muscle building, tattooing,
    and piercing, growing a beard is painless and takes almost no
    effort. Many Members of The British Beard Club have done all this
    at least once, and are here to advise, admire and encourage you.

    Welcome to Yorkshire Beard Day 2018 and have a wonderful day
    of follicular fun!

    Special thanks to Anthony Springall, Kearon and the rest of the
    team for arranging and conducting the event so splendidly.

    David Dade
    Hon President

    March 11 is World Plumbing Day. It is a date that has been fixed
    on the calendars of the World Plumbing community since its
    establishment by the WPC in 2010 and is now a fixture on the
    calendars of political and social institutions across the globe.

    The international plumbing community, as represented by the
    Council, has a vital role in promoting the link between good quality
    plumbing, health, environmental sustainability and, increasingly,
    economic prosperity. A key way the Council promotes that link is
    through World Plumbing Day.

    March 11 is marked by celebrations, competitions, seminars, and
    activities all around the world. People from within and outside the
    plumbing fraternity come together to learn, share knowledge, build
    connections and find opportunities to collaborate to improve the
    quality of, and access to, fresh water and safe sanitation.

    There are now hundreds of annual World Plumbing Day events,
    promoting the link between good plumbing sanitation and human
    and environmental health. To get involved please contact
    secretariat@worldplumbing.org >>>
