Thursdays are fun days when Pádraig’s friends come to the house to share with him what is going on in their lives, to have some fun, and packets of biscuits.

So maybe, it wasn’t such a bad idea after all, to service his ceiling hoist – a service that included the super-weight test: having a box full of really heavy weights, making up more than 140kg, being lifted up by the hoist.

Today, the kitchen was packed with his friends for almost four hours, a time full of laughter, jokes, and biscuit eating. You could see, hear and feel the delight of these hours.These were the dreamboaters, the future, the energy and the tomorrow. All in safe hands.
