Well we made it back! My cat has now disappeared and the neighbours have battened down their hatches!
Thankfully no one committed suicide, but a few signals died so I missed all my connections. The ‘nice’ taxi driver drops me off at the sea front, I cant go all that way and not see the sea. Then a mad dash up to the school.
And there he was, im sure another inch taller (now over 6 foot!). He smiled at me, only a flicker, but it was a smile! Wow, that was a first! And then he started head banging the nearest wall, time we departed! Some autistic people find it difficult to transfer things, so I shouldn’t be at the school! Its too confusing for him.
The journey back wasn’t too bad? I had to contain myself, I just wanted to hug him chat to him, tell him things, ask him questions. Not that he can answer. But he finds human voices and touch to hard to tolerate, so we sit in silence, me with my nose in a book, every now and again stealing a glance at him with a big grin on my face! He- licking the window, watching the world race by with his fingers in his ears.
Over the next 4 hours we get many stares, one old lady laughs at him hysterically, haven’t seen that reaction before, and some teenagers remarked rather loudly that they were going to another carriage. But this is nothing, and I do have to remember people don’t often see the likes of C. But I wish they weren’t so blatant about it.
Anyway, got home, really big smiles and ear piercing screams.! Which melt my heart! I put on a DVD and he strips off.
My heart has stopped melting as I can smell poo….got to go! (For those of you with young kids that smear, just you wait till they get to 6 foot! You need a step ladder!)
