Over to T for details of today’s DOUBLE Olympig events:
The piggies had a rest day yesterday so we had two events today. “Going through the tunnel” and “speed fruit eating”. Bungle was a clear winner in this and had a victory chomp of the side of the tunnel. Zippy was a winner in the “speed fruit eating” so the table looks like this now:
George 14 points
Zippy 13 points
Bungle 13 points.
Bungle just winning the tunnel race:
Zippy’s rear end!
What a brilliant day for Team GB! I am looking forward to seeing all the pictures in Dad’s paper tomorrow. I have been playing “Mario & Sonic at London 2012″ on the wii, I was “metal sonic” and beat Usain Bolt’s time in a 100m sprint.
A much better day today for D, she doesn’t often have anxieties that last all day (thank goodness) but it’s a case of feeling powerless and just having to let it ride it’s course.
She’s been happily colouring (always a sign that she’s relaxed) and doing some cutting and sticking. This is a “green alien lady”:
And I got a badge for “being the best girl” – that definitely makes up for yesterday!
So….a much better day for us. I hope everyone’s had a good day too. Please have a read of my earlier post “The Double D’s” if you haven’t. Despite the cheeky title, it’s all about D and her best friend, who is also a D!

Excuse the potentially cheeky title!
After the meltdown-fest that was yesterday, I wanted to focus on something positive today. This is a post that I’ve been meaning to do for a while but it’s been finding the time.
D (my lovely 8 year old daughter) has a best friend at school. They’ve only known each other for about a year-and-a-half but he calls himself her “protector” in the playground, when the other children are chasing and scaring her.
He is a “D” too and also has autism.
The teachers all call it “the great romance” and the D’s don’t do anything in that way apart from say each others’ names in a cute way and put their arms around each other. My D did come home one day and say another pupil had told them to kiss, but she said “I didn’t, because kissing is NOT allowed in school” – well done D!
They used to sit together as (as one TA put it) “only D could control him”. By that I think she meant that D (boy) would only listen to my D.
It was so nice to see them together at sports day.
Whilst we were at sports day, another TA told me that D (boy) had got really upset the day before because he’d brushed past my D and thought he’d hurt her arm. He had been so worried that he’d cried a lot and my D was worried because he was upset too.
Throughout everything that happens at school, D is her constant. I don’t know if they’ll be in the same class, I doubt they will as they’ll spend their time coo-ing at each other. I hope they’ll always be friends.
I think they’ll both be together at a birthday party we’re going to on Sunday, how cute and exciting!!
