I met Robert Powell at the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead. He opened their Christmas fair on 7 December 2013. He was mobbed but I got to the front and asked him for a photo. He was waiting for someone to get their mobile out and was pretty surprised when I said I can take it myself.
The next photos were taken at the Association of Labour Councillors Conference on 1 March 2014. When I was invited by the MND Association I didn't expect that anyone would bother with me.I couldn't have been more mistaken. Every MP and Councillor loved my computer and were extremely kind and patient. They all happily signed the MND Charter and discussed MND with us. I've always voted Labour and will certainly continue to do so.
I didn't think I'd meet Ed because we were told that he had to go to another engagement. I spotted him leaving the conference room and told my carer, Andrea. She grabbed my wheelchair and asked him to speak to me. Her speed still makes me laugh! I managed to type 'I'm a big fan'. He said thanks and 'what an amazing computer'. Then agreed to have the photo. He was so patient even though he was in a hurry and I was impressed. Seems to be a very genuine and sincere person. He'll make an excellent PM.
Iain is just super cool and we got on right away. Maybe because we're both secretaries ;)
Great person, always difficult to work out which way to move your head on the I-12!
Vernon is really down to earth. He actually chose this photo and deleted the other one that I took himself! Lucky that I have a touch screen.
How cute is that smile? I can't remember much more because I was tired, but Hilary was very friendly and interested.
