Guess who’s back?

It’s me.

Hello. So it’s been around three years since I last posted. I have totally lost the knack of writing – that’s if I ever had a knack at all. Basically I wanted to write again because recently I have felt the need to reach out to others more. Try and be more open and not hide myself away.

As you can probably tell a lot has happened in the last 3 years.

So what have I been up to? That’s always a difficult question for me to answer, as I always just say “Not much. You know the same old, same old.” This is because I’m terrible at small talk. It always seem to be at the end of the conversation that I then suddenly remember that I do have something to say. So what are those things,

I now have two children, with the eldest now starting school, and the youngest turning 2 in October. I love my boys so much. I didn’t think I would be able to cope with being a father but even though it can be a struggle at times I wouldn’t change things for the world. The two of them are special. I know everyone says that about their own children, but these two are awesome. Firstly they were born a day before our birthdays. The eldest being born a day before my wife’s birthday and the youngest being born the day before mine. I am always impressed how easily they can understand things, and how they can brighten my mood with a smile.

I have been coming to terms with being on the autistic spectrum, and embracing my differences more. I have been more open to talk about the condition, I even set up a Autism Awareness training day at work.

I have returned to social media and have joined a few Facebook groups for autistic people, and have set up a group chat so I can talk to others. I have yet to embrace Twitter again. I’m not sure that I will. With Twitter the magic of the early days are gone. I also don’t think I have the energy to post short random updates anymore. Saying that I don’t know how often I will post on this blog either. I do want to post ’42 things about being forty two’ while I’m still 42. I have to get a few Douglas Adams references in there somewhere.

So that’s really it for now.

P.S I’m now on level 39 of Pokemon Go.

#Boring2011

I thought I would write about what happened last Saturday. I won’t bore you with the details:

    • I went to a Boring Conference.
    • I was the 823310th person out of 400.
    • I listened to these people talk.
    • I read out the bar code for a packet of *Hula Hoops. It ended with 7.
      *Those with a keen eye will notice that the best before date is 3 months after my 35th birthday.
    • I listened to the sound of vending machines.
    • I bought this book. It was the 87th book of 250.
    • In the pub afterwards I spoke to the author of the book, & other people.
    • I then went home.
    • On Monday I appeared in a *crowd photo which featured in The Sun.
      *For those trying to find me, I am sat near the rabbit.

This is my 27th published post. It has *144 words.

*not including the words talking about the post. If it did it would be 151 words.
