Today it’s Charley’s third birthday (oh my god time flies). Today charley will wake up and unwrap a little toy I’ve got him.
People always think I’m crazy. Really you celebrate your dogs birthday. Well yeah I do my dog has helped me with my depression more than any medication or therapy ever has. He hasn’t cured it but both dogs help me every day. Whenever I’m sad they try to cheer me up, showering me in kisses to show that I’m loved. I would be a lot worse today if it wasn’t for Buddy and Charley. There not just two dogs there part of the family. So of course today we celebrate their birthday and on Wednesday we’ll celebrate Buddy’s.
Today I saw an advert in my college, ‘send us your best selfie for the chance to win a selfie stick.’
Selfie sticks really? What is the point? If me and my friends are out and we can’t get everyone in a selfie we as the next passerby and ask them if they can take the picture. We’ve only ever had one person say no and that was because they were running late. Also the pictures tend to be much better, they often take about two or three pics to make sure they get one right and sometimes even wait for us to see if the pic is ok. To me it looks like a complete waste of money and a chance to get money off teenagers who are happy to spend like that
So for my birthday my parents got me a model to make (I’ll post more about it when I’m done). Today I was at my uncles and he asked me about it. I said it’s going great, I’m enjoying it and I’m getting proud of all I’ve done. My one downside was a ran out of the reddy purply paint. Why do they make you spend money on the model say the include paints and then make you buy more?
That’s where my mum butted in. She claims I would have had enough paint if I hadn’t started painting while watching TV. (It was a big bit and didn’t need close attention to paint) Because while painting I got shocked causing me to knock my paint over and spill it all over my mums wooden floor and cream walls.
In my defence I normally don’t get spooked at NCIS and I did by more paint out of my own money. Oh yeah and I did clean my mums wall and floors, you cannot tell that any paint was ever there.
The past week I’ve been unwell. Unfortunately during the summer holidays I was involved in an accident which led to me getting damaged lungs, so when I caught a cold off my sister it quickly developed into more. During my illness my mum tried numerous medications (all advised by my GP) some of which made me tired and sometimes a bit I don’t really no how to describe what it made me like it was that bizarre. I only realised how bad I was when I went on Twitter this morning and saw that while I was on medication I was tweeting about unicorns. Yes unicorns. I found it so funny and only wish I had wrote more. So there where two upsides to the medication; firstly it made me better and second it provided me with humour.
Today I was in college. My bus stop is at the end of the road that my college is on (it’s only a short road). Today I was agitated when I got home. On my way into and college and backed I got stopped 12 times. On a small road I got stopped 12 times, I mean really why. I had headphones in to play music so that the bus is not to loud when I’m on it and people actually grabbed my arm to ask me if I want a free pizza. And when I said no they preceded to barter with me.
I know with Aspergers I don’t like physical contact with strangers but I’m pretty sure some with out Aspergers would have been fuming. It was literally that bad.
Yesterday I turned 19 and I got so many birthday wishes off friends and family, but there is one that stands out from all the rest. I was sat at home when my mobile started ringing with an unusual number. It was not a number my phone recognised and it had and it was an international number. I was nervous to answer it but when I did I heard a man asking if this was Abbie. I of course said yes and asked who it was. It was when the caller said it was my cousin John calling to say my birthday that a smile broke out on my face. If you read my previous post you might know my cousin John is in Afghanistan. I couldn’t believe that he went to the effort to call me up and wish me a happy birthday. It was truly the most special birthday message I’ve had.
Tomorrow my big cousin is making a huge sacrifice. He’ll be away for six months missing; his daughters 6th birthday, his anniversary and Christmas and New Year with his family. He will come back just 15 days before his second child is born, but there is a chance that he could miss that as well. All of this because tomorrow he flies out to Afghanistan.
My cousin, his wife and young daughter are making a huge sacrifice just so that many can have freedom. So people don’t have to live in persecution and fear.
To my Jonny Bravo,
Good luck. We are all so proud of you and will miss you so much. Your two babies are proud to say I’ve got a hero for a daddy. We are back here in England cheering you on. We promise to write and send you lots of sweets and chocolate, that’s the least you deserve. Just please try and come back safe. See you soon John.
All my love Abbie x
