Summer house discussion

 I'd rather go for something multi-functional - something you can sit out in, like a summerhouse, and hang some tools on the back wall and store the garden furniture in over the winter like a shed, and with a big window or two to let lots of light in so that you can put some plants in there over winter, do some potting on and pricking out in, and maybe ripen some tomatoes and chillies in there too ........ there are all sorts of buildings available ..... keep looking

If you have an interest in autism

Posted: 29/12/2015 at 17:01

Hope this doesn't sound odd/patronising, but I find autism a fascinating condition - I have met so many people who live their lives on various parts of that spectrum and whose abilities and life experiences are incredibly varied.

After I'd been with Children's Services for a while, I worked mainly with children and young people at the most severe end of the spectrum, usually non-verbal, with severe LD and possibly at least one other condition. I also volunteered at a youth club for youngsters with severe learning and physical disabilities which was run by this organisation

Absolutely inspirational as well as being great fun!
