Food for thought
I want to be more independent. This includes feeding myself. But I have difficulty using a knife and fork. There is special cutlery I can use. But it can still take me a long time to feed myself. It can be easier to ask someone to help. But what if I want to live alone? What about when I am on a date? I need to practice. I need to strengthen my arms. I also need to be resourceful. And I should not be ashamed to ask for help when I need it.

Queens on a budget
My friend Gerda and I love going out. But we do not spend a lot of money. We have found ways of having fun at cheap prices. Free public transport helps. We also use discount vouchers. We recently went to Warrnambool on the train. We had a half price lunch using a shopping docket discount coupon. We had a great day. There are many different ways of getting discount coupons. They can help people save a lot of money. Using vouchers enables us to enjoy things that would otherwise be out of reach.

Dining with a disability
I have vision loss. It can make dining at a restaurant difficult. I need lighting that is not too dark or light. There is also a lot to consider when ordering food. I need a menu with large print. I also need to order something easy to eat. Cutting up food can be difficult. It can be embarrassing when a big piece of food is on my fork. I also cannot see when people are bringing things to the table. My friend usually warns me. Once I knocked a waiter and my plate of food went everywhere.
