Chris and I dropped over to meet Cal last week for lunch at the cafe he is volunteering at. Cafe 16 in Coleford if anyone local is interested. It’s a lovely place and the food and coffee is fab.

Over lunch, Cal gave us a blow by blow account of his journey there. Far more detail than usual. He goes with a member of staff from his house. Or so he said.

It turns out that wasn’t quite true. Cal is now taking himself on the bus to work. Independently. We’re now in a state of great pride and wishing we didn’t know so we can’t worry.

Who’d have thought it! So this opens up more things for him 😀😀. What a boy.

Glad it’s not distracted him from Halloween though.

    We share your fears. Joe now travelling independently and we’re torn between concern and pleasure. Well done, Cal! (Surely a perfect job for Cal too, volunteering in a cafe?) x
