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

Sunday 22nd April

If you haven’t seen it yet, please have a read of my “Here comes the Sun” post. It will definitely make you smile .

D has been a little bit up and down today. We had to wait in for a Sky TV man, no specific time given – know what they’re like – and he arrived just as tea was ready. Routines, routines…
Strange man arrives (sort of) unexpectedly, cue a meltdown and D very agitated. Fortunately he wasn’t here long.

I’ve been chatting to T today and we’re going to incorporate him & me time into our weekends. He gets plenty of male-bonding time with Hubbie at football etc but no time with me. I can’t take him out and leave D with Hubbie – with the best will in the world that wouldn’t work – so we’ll try putting D’s favourite film on and using that time to chat.

I have asked him about SN siblings clubs but he’s not keen ATM. I don’t ever want him to resent his sister, he’s very protective of her.

Tomorrow I start again with the phonecalls and GP liaison to try and get D on that waiting list so I’m glad I’ve had a chance to recharge!

Tonight’s picture is

Bunny! That faithful companion. Normally to be found in D’s hand or armpit if she’s drawing and occasionally thrown about during meltdowns.

Thanks for reading, comments/RTs as ever welcomed Jx 
