    Well it's my birthday on Saturday and my city is throwing a party to celebrate! I keep telling myself that but really it's our Pride parade so I'll be attending that. Out for a meal on Sunday. Weird to think LFCC isn't happening again for another year.

    Undecided about DST it depends on funds over the next few months. Would love to meet George Takei so it's a real possibility. At least I have another convention in a few weeks (not showmasters) to get rid of the con blues.

    And I'm back at work wishing I was still in London. Sad times.

    Day Three

    I saw @wjbleming and his brother at least 6 times. Funny despite living not that far from each other I never run into him here. He has ran into my sister randomly before though! You guys were just everywhere this weekend @Ravogd I saw you 3 times I think? So you were the other one I saw the most!

    Bernard Cribbins appreciation

    Eccleston was moved because there was a leak in the ceiling at Lana Parrilla's desk. I was in the queue at Lana's waiting for her to come back from lunch and everyone was getting rained. They came over and told us they were moving Chris to a booth so Lana could be up against the wall and away from the leak.

    Day Three

    I'm up for a photo of all of us next year!

    Photos! Let’s see them!!

    I think we read the same things and there were some horribly inappropriate sexist behaviour towards Jenna. No girl should have to put up with that and if I was her I would have been tempted to give up and go home. She stayed I give her props for doing so. I need to get my photos on here I have a few on my phone but I'll get the rest up later.

    I think I may have cut through a few lines but I always said excuse me and thanks when I did. Sorry if I offended anyone!

    Great day at LFCC but...

    I do get PIP but I'm lucky it is disgustingly impossible to get. DLA was already difficult and then they changed the requirements for PIP to make it be that you had to be even more disabled to qualify. I was terrified when it came to switching because I would lose my car but I got lucky. My mother got turned down from PIP when she was dying of cancer. The assessor turned up to our house and left after 10 minutes. She scored zero and died less than 6 months later. People (and certain newspapers who I won't name) who go on about people cheating the system are really unaware of how restrictive the system is.

    I thought the gifts this year were great! Some were better quality than others but they were well thought out. I really liked the hip flasks for Tom Felton and Tom Ellis, the Bartlet for President 2020 notebook for Martin Sheen and the headphones for Zachary Quinto.

    Great day at LFCC but...

    I usually hand my crutch off to the crew member standing at the side. They got to know me by the end of the weekend so they were reaching for it . But yeah it's only a few steps and a lot of the time the guest is happy to help me back to the crutch even though I don't really have a problem then since the shoot is only a few seconds. I'm sure it does raise a few eyebrows from the queue but no one has ever actually mentioned anything. I just don't want my ugly crutch in the photo with me.

    Day Three

    I tried to find you when we were all hanging out around areas A-D but I couldn't spot you. Maybe next year!

    Great day at LFCC but...

    There is definitely a lack of awareness about what constitutes a disability. People think if they can't see your disability then you must not be disabled. I had mobility problems for years that I could have been receiving benefits like a blue badge for but because they weren't visible I never did. It was only when I got stuck using my crutch I finally caved. Even now when I park in a disabled spot and get out of the car I see the looks from some people until I get my crutch from the back seat. It's ridiculous. People who have received the extra help wristband have already had to provide proof which isn't easy to get if you don't legitimately have a problem. Showmasters is strict about it, as they should be to prevent people from abusing the system, and won't just hand over a band to someone who rocks up with a crutch or a wheelchair to get a head start on the queues.
