Hello friends out in bloggyland.
I am sitting here writing and watching the snowflakes falling outside.
I am saying to myself, “I wonder how long we will be out in the playground today?”
Yesterday I was frozen by the time they rang the bell.
I went into the classroom of the class I was supervising and perched myself on the radiator.
They are very old radiators and they are big enough to sit on, which was lovely because I was able to warm my bottom before having to leave and go back into the cold to go home.
I was really quite amazed this morning to read a blog post of my friend Fi, who lives in Australia.
I had never really thought about how different Christmas is in other countries.
I think that’s partly to do with my Asperger’s
AND… partly because I just haven’t really thought about it before….giggle
Yes that’s right I live in a box, or a bubble, which ever you prefer….hehehe
It’s So good that I can laugh at myself isn’t it?!
In England we have so many Traditions
Christmas Dinner, the Queen’s speech.
Eating that much on Christmas day you feel fit to explode.
Sitting down in the afternoon to watch a feel happy Christmas movie.
Oh yeah….let’s not forget the Turkey Curry that we live off for the rest of the week.
So…for me this morning reading Fi’s blog, was a real eye opener.
I am so used to my own understanding I don’t always see that people do things differently to me.
This is quite a revelation for me.
It applies to everything, I don’t seem to understand that people react differently to different things.
I guess this Autistic trait has got a name, but I ain’t got a clue what.
Somebody who knows just stick it in my comments please.
I really can’t read up on this stuff with my dyslexia, my brain just switches off.
Anyway about the snow
My kids love it….*AJ is singing constantly, “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!” with his guitar.
*CAL came home from school yesterday and went straight in the garden and played quite happily till I called her back in.
As for me…
I’m hoping that it snows really heavy because then they close the school and we take our sledge up the hills and have some really good fun.
I love sledging and the hills by us go forever, I don’t half get up some speed. Sorry about the slang there, but I ain’t changing it…lol
But I shouldn’t say that I want heavy snow really because the snow causes so much trouble and upset to people.
But this is my blog isn’t it…..hehehe
“A place where I can be me”…..so I’m just gonna say it.
