Gosh hasn’t time flown! Its been a busy time I suspect for most of you too, either with kids being off school or just the long bank holiday weekend.
I’ve been busy again with tending to Alex, organising some “care at home strategies”which can be put into place for his return. But, there is also another issue on the horizon which until the full “go ed date” happens I’ll keep up my sleeve for you guys to keep looking out for!
Above are the gifts which I’ll be giving to the other patients on the day that Alex gets discharged. I was told that the blanket couldn’t be donated as it was against health and safety regulations but there was nothing in place to say that I couldn’t give gifts to individuals … so the blanket is going to get auctioned off for the national Autistic Society instead.
I rattled my brains for a while and eventually took into account how some of the patients were moving to “supported housing”. The roses would make nice gifts for the girls and the bobble ornaments for the lads. Its sooooo hard hard making gifts for guys… besides having to take into account learning difficulties but I think it might be a winner.
You’ll be pleased to know that we had a lovely time over the holidays, Alex is getting better by the day and with each visit he appears to be back to his old self.
If you’d like to make one of these yourself then please follow the link .. they are ever so easy!
The pattern for the roses was given to me by Mo, who made broaches with them for her drumming group (sounds very exotic eh)
As for the bobbles, tassels and bit&bobs that I added to them can be found on

Sending you a wonder rest of the week … Helen xxxxxxxxx
