Today has been Good.

Work-wise I’ve harvested and cut back three of four pumpkin plants (the fourth, in the greenhouse frame, hasn’t started dying back at all yet and is clinging on to summer) and set the pumpkins out to cure in the porch, cut back some of the honeysuckle on the coldframe frame, cut down the finished sweetcorn stalk, dug up a load of ground elder roots from between the roses (and re-planted all the spring bulbs that came up with them) and set 6 cloves of garlic (of that garlic that I discovered growing back in June!) there, weeded the big vegetable bed ready for covering with cardboard to over-winter, and pulled some carrots for tea to go with the potatoes I dug up a few weeks ago and one of today’s pumpkins. 811 more words

The one thing in life that I was absolutely, positively sure about… Was me, the autistic. That autistic would never change in any of its parts, really. 578 more words


Stunned and amazed! Me! Autistic and CHANGING!??! What the fuck?

Seriously… Who Knew about this?  Why didn’t I ever get informed about it, all those years ago?

That it could get better…  That I wasn’t some “irrevocable, unchangeable thing”. 872 more words
