>wow – what a day

in addition to normal work and the online tutoring course today was a mass of phone calls to sort out media stuff for the National Autistic Society ‘Make Schools Make sense Campaign’

Tomorrow is the big launch in Scotland. I was supposed to go to Holyrood (Scottish Parliament) but can’t cause Tim is still in Korea. The school press photos didn’t materialise yet but the BBC came round to our flat tonight to record somthing for tomorrows regional news (BBC Scotland).

It was very rushed, highly nerveracking and I’m sure I looked like an idiot. Laurie was really nervous and, of course, the big bright light didn’t help his autistic sensibilities. We had just got back from school pick-up so didn’t even have time to brush hair, check wobbly bits, etc…

he did brilliantly though and got to have a feel for the fancy gear…

tv star

not only that he has got a part in the christmas pantomime as the king in a sleeping beauty performance. he is so chuffed (poncy british word meaning very very happy).

All this star stuff may go to his head.

The TV bit will be on BBC Scotland tomorrow night – 31st at 6.30. It will also be on the web site for about a day or so.

poor old tim missed it all so we’ll have to tape it for him. he’s back late tomorrow night… hector the wonderdog will be beside himself as he’s been pining away…
