Raising Money

So I’ve been trying to raise some money for the youth club I volunteer at. As I’m sire you have all heard me say how important it is for the young people. So I’ve made a  few digital posters that are available to download for just £1 with profits going to the youth club. I’m also starting to design some handmade Christmas cards which I’m hoping to get up soon. So please go and check it out 🙂

Onesie Time and Changing Clocks

It’s getting to that time of year when it gets cold nights. So it’s time to put on my onesie. I love wearing my onesie it’s so warm and fluffy. But there is one slight problem I’m short so as you can imagine my feet end up in the leg holes. But I can’t help wearing it especially with weather like this and the news saying it’s going to get colder. So I think I’m just going to have to be extra careful walking about until I can get a onesie without the feet attached.

Also last night the clocks went back, this means at 2 o clock the clocks go back to 1. An extra hour in bed! While the rest of my family love it I’m not the same way. It puts my body clock off and I get confused and my sleeping pattern gets disturbed. Who could think that one hour could bother me so much, but it does.  I just hope that I can get back to my normal patterns as soon as possible without disrupting my my schedule to much.

It’s like a sonar

My favourite film in the world is Titanic, so as you can imagine one of my favourite songs is My Heart Will Go On. So I was upstairs in my room doing homework and my door was shut so I couldn’t hear the TV. But then whilst I was sat there I thought I could hear the tune to My Heart Will Go On. I thought it might have been my IPod so I went to the desk downstairs where I had left it. When i got there I saw no music was playing on it but I could definitely hear the song playing. So I went into the living room where my family was watching TV and lone behold My Heart Will Go On was playing. It was so weird. My family thought it was hysterical and they have now made a joke saying I have a sonar thing. I guess that’s one of the perks of having Asperger’s Syndrome.

Long Time No Post

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted something on her. There are many reasons why I haven’t been blogging much. First I went to a wedding so the entire weekend I was busy due to travelling (it was such a long journey) and then the wedding. But also I have had a lot of stuff going on and I have been focused on making sure my college work is the highest it can be. But I’m back and I’m going to start updating regularly.

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, ‘Peace be Thine’.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

I posted this poem that I read an found beautiful in memory of a my auntie Jan today she would be 47 but she will always be 28!

The People Who Go Above & Beyond

Tonight I’m sitting down to watch the Pride of Britain Awards Show. I never watch awards shows but this one. For those who don’t know what it is, it’s an award show in autumn where all the A List celebrities and royals gather to this award show. The winners of the Pride of Britain awards are the ordinary people who do extraordinary things. The winners range from children to pensioners but every winner is amazing. For those of you who have not watched it you should on catch up, but I’m not sure if you can view it outside the UK. Tonight I’m getting my box of tissues ready to watch the people who are the Pride of Britain.

I Recommend: Freaks, Geeks and Aspergers Syndrome (book)

When I was first diagnosed with Aspergers, the doctor who diagnosed me knew I was in shock and I had no idea what I had been diagnosed with. He suggested to get this book: Freaks, Geeks and Aspergers Syndrome. The book is written by Luke Jackson a thirteen year old boy with Aspergers with illustrations done by his sisters. The book is amazing I found loads of useful advice in it and I felt like I was no longer alone. In the book Luke also talks about his younger brothers with autism. This made me see how autism can show signs in everyone differently, and also how my sister saw me and the troubles she faced with me. But my favourite thing about it is its written by a teenager for teenagers. For me this is the ideal book for households with a teen with Aspergers in it.
