Yes, surprisingly there is a link but not craft related and it links a bit to last week’s shopping post by Dave… So as you know if you’ve been on our training, one of our other interests is food – especially trying new stuff. So the other day I (Vicky) bought in some new Red Velvet Crunch Cream biscuits to nibble on at work. When I said to Dave what they were he queried what Red Velvet was. So I said, like the cake I guess. What cake?? It’s amazing how much we just gather visually, seeing Red Velvet cakes in the shops, at cake sales etc. giving us the opportunity to try new things or find out more about them …and here’s the link to Messy Church – we were providing some training at a church venue and I was clearing some of the previous craft items out of the way and said I expected that they were from the ‘Messy Church’ – again Dave queried what on earth I was talking about (not uncommon in itself) and having explained I then wondered how I knew myself as I’m not a church goer. But I’ve just seen all those big banners outside the churches as I drive past. Another example of just gleaning info in passing. And whilst neither are essential things to know for most of us, there’s still that element of missing out….

Our VIDA Insights...
Following our experiences from delivering our Vision Impairment Awareness training days over the past couple of years, we know that there’s loads more that we could talk about and examples we could have shared. Whilst these won’t be a substitute for our training, they will give you an insight (hence the name!) into our thoughts, observations and experiences from each of our perspectives - Dave’s living with sight loss and Vicky’s from being a sighted person and working alongside and supporting people who have sight loss.
