29 Jul

I’ve been so busy these past few weeks. So very very busy, that I’ve barely had time to sit down, let along write the odd blog post.

The biggest news has been Cal’s graduation and sudden media stardom. He’s left Foxes with several English and Maths skills developments, a full NVQ in Housekeeping, an Outstanding Learner of the Year Award for his communications skills development and at least one possible housemate for September. He doesn’t have a house yet, but that’s being worked on. We are so very very proud of him.

He’s also been in the paper receiving his award, and the TV documentary he’s in in the autumn is cranking up their publicity too. Channel 5, A Very Special Hotel. Cal has done so well thanks to the very many people who have seen something in him and persevered to bring out those skills, ever since he was a rolling ball of screeching fury as a toddler. THANK YOU!

so now, we’re waiting to hear how searches for housing and support are getting on, somewhere near to us. And once he’s settled there, then it’s some kind of supported job search. Exciting!

He’s crashing around the house now, even though he doesn’t need to get up yet, as he’s about to do one of his favourite things – go on a plane. This is one of my least favourite things, which is why I’m crashing around the house too. Still, at the end of it, we will be in Dubai, en route for Sri Lanka. Which is a bit different from camping in France, and which I can’t quite believe we are doing.

Wifi willing, I will get some more blogging time at last. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

here’s photos of our star, looking very dignified.

    I’m not sure I can top Mike’s comment because I agree 100%. Safe and enjoyable travels, we want plenty of pictures and don’t fall off any elephants!

    We, Calums extended part of the family, are all so very proud of him but Without a doubt Calum’s big sister would be and is the proudest of them all. Rosie was like a lioness with her cub when she talked about Cal, fiercely protective and very proud. Have a fabulous holiday, we look forward to tails of the adventure you have had.
