    Hello Quakeroat

    Everything Lady A has said is true and logical but , as someone who can feel claustrophobic, I do understand how you must have felt. A breath of fresh air could have worked wonders.

    Whatever the reason for the delay, making you wait two hours is too long.

    Please don`t let it put you off the Day Care Centre. You have had some good times there and this is the first challenge I think you have faced.

    Now is the time to talk to someone who is aware of the situation you found yourself in and how the staff responded.

    Hi
    As grannie g said,this is the first set back,not let it take over.
    Maybe next week,if the weather is suitable,ask/ tell someone in charge that you would like to go outside as soon as possible.
    It maybe there are more helpers before lunch,for example,so that would be a suitable time,or they may be able to allocate a helper to be around-especially if there are others who may like to be outside for a while.
    Think of this as a small niggle that you will get sorted-maybe not straight away,but with perseverance you will do it.

    Thanks u guys I appreciate the help u are trying to give me . I have another idea which has been suggested to me of Art Psychotherapy I can be considered for that, I may like it as much.
    My friends met me for coffee this morning and both said they had one word Admiration ! I asked them in what context they said it was for me they both had it, I felt very blessed.

    I have been taking to the person who operates all the art sessions she asked me which day was better for me.
    She will ring back when she has a date for me to start.
    Apparently it works to ease the stress and anxiety so we will see , I would stand in the corner for an hour on my head if she said that would work.

    QUakerOat - stick with your Day Care Centre and enjoy your art. In a previous life I worked for 16 years as and Art/Craft Tutor and I loved it and the people I worked with. It was a joy to meet people who said "I can't draw a straight line." and watch them go on to do delicate watercolour paintings, collages or join a group project like rag rug making.

    Some day centres can be a bit regimented but as far as I could make out it was usually for the safety of the "clients" (their choice of word not mine). We used to have a couple of people who wanted a smoke mid morning and obviously they had to go outside to do so but the staff weren't happy about this in case they fell or took ill while they were out there.

    Another idea might be to see whether you can find somebody locally who would like to come and paint with you at your home or even see whether your budget will pay for 1-1 tutiton with a tutor.

    Thing is with a day centre, you see more new faces, you will get a nice lunch and drinks and it's a change of venue.

    I am sure you will get a lot of enjoyment from your new hobby. Xx
