I’ve been busy today, getting ready for the TV shows on Sunday.
It’s been a pleasant day, actually.
But today I want to talk about my friend, Brenda.
Many of you know her.
She and I write to each other often, and enjoy a very special friendship. She lives in Scotland and I live darn sarf, so writing is our way to stay in touch and support each other.
She sent me the most beautiful handmade little donkey for my birthday!
He is soooooo adorable!
How kind and thoughtful is that?! I also received so many beautiful handmade cards from other friends too, and I would like to show them off to you next week, when I finally take them all down off the window ledges and mantelpiece.
Did you know that it’s World Autism Awareness Week this week?
Brenda asked me if I would mention it here, to do just that:
create some awareness.
She is autistic; she has Asperger’s syndrome,
which is a form of autism. So do a lot a lot a lot of people.
But until we reach out and try to understand HOW these individuals tick, HOW they process things, we cannot be of much use to them at all. Thank goodness Brenda and I have a mutual trust and respect for each other, so that we can share.
What is Autism?
Do we really know?
I recently watched a documentary with Chris Packham the TV Presenter, who suffers with Asperger’s too.
That was a real eye opener. Below I have found a short explanation of what these good people like Brenda and Chris have to endure.
Talk about misunderstood!
I have also included a link to a Donation Page here.

on the note, I shall go indoors and have some supper.
