Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

It’s been a while since I did my original post (“An idea for World Autism Day”), so here’s a quick update.

I never heard back from the manager of the Shopping Centre – not even an acknowledgement email. I phoned twice and emailed twice more and nothing…..extremely rude I thought. Wasn’t going to pursue it further, they obviously weren’t interested.

I have dropped leaflets into local shops near me, naturally my local Costa is one of them! All happy to display leaflets, they are know me and D by sight/name anyway. It’s a friendly precinct.

Now the biggie:
There is an article coming out in our local paper tomorrow, featuring D and I. I will try and post a link. No idea what it’s going to say, we did it all by phone and I sent the journalist some blog posts which I’d done. Part of me is incredibly nervous and thinking my daughter hasn’t asked for this etc but the fact that they’ve agreed to do this, and reference World Autism Day can only be good.

There was meant to be someone else publishing something too but I’m not sure when that is.

I spent a lot of time weekend before last emailing parenting magazines and referencing my blog. One came back straight away and said “we don’t accept unsolicited work” – how on earth do you get in there then? and another were interested and gave me another address so we shall see….

So..that’s what I’ve been up to….roll on Monday!

Happy for comments/RTs etc and have a nice day Jx 😘
