Good times

I had a really good day at School yesterday. Really good. The teacher even sent a letter home to tell Mum and Dad how good I had been. How cool's that. So as a little reward Mum and Dad let me bake some cookies that we had for desert. I got really mucky making them and then splatted them down onto the tray. They kind of ended up sticking together but they tasted really good and Mum and Dad even let me have theirs.

More good news from school is that we have another residential this year. In July we are going to Oakhampton again which is really cool. We went there last year and I had so much fun. So I'm really looking forward to that.

Apparently I've got an appointment to see a special doctor next week with Mum and Dad. They have said it's a yearly checkup on my Aspergers. I don't know if theres much point because I've clearly still got it! They want to ask him a few questions about my arguing and something else that is too embarrassing for me to say on here.

I hope you are still all enjoying my blog. I am struggling to write things some days because I don't want people being bored and some of the things that I have trouble with I don't realise are things that other people wouldn't have trouble with.

Speak soon

The trouble with Aspergers

Today I didn't know what to say. I've been getting into lots of trouble at home for doing things wrong but I don't like talking about it. Dad sat down with me and said that this is exactly the kind of thing that lots of other children might like to know. Which is really good, because, thats what I wanted this blog to be for. So I thought it would be a good idea to talk about just that. Why I have trouble talking about things.

Sometimes when I get in trouble I get so angry that I end up throwing things around and really shouting loads. I sometimes say things that I really don't mean. One of the things I get in trouble for is always wanting to get involved in conversations when they are not really anything to do with me and I don't even understand it. I just like to know everything that is going on and don't want to miss out on anything. I think the problem then comes when I'm asked to either keep out of it or be quiet. I then sometimes can't control myself. I sometimes can't keep quiet and keep talking until I'm really told off or I just get angry and start shouting. This is probably my biggest problem at the moment. I have trouble knowing when to stop and then when I get angry I have trouble calming down until I'm just left alone in my room. I can't be left in my room when I'm out though.

But I still like to think that there is good things that are because of the way I am. I love all animals so much. And because of that when ever there is anything going on with animals anywhere mum and dad take me. I went to the garden centre on Sunday because they had a cool animal display there with hamsters, special rats, bee's and a really cute little baby guinea pig that was blind. His name was Jasper and he was really cuddly. There was also a load of cool birds there. Big owls and eagles that I got to stroke as well. All though I think that Dad was more impressed with the birds than I was!

Speak to you all soon.

Food frustration

One thing I keep getting in trouble about at home is eating. Dad calls it an obsession that I have. I always want to eat junk or even just eat. After I've had breakfast in the mornings I'll start talking about wanting elevenses or what I am going to have for it. If I miss having anything I moan about not having it. If I'm told not to complain about it I can sometimes get really angry. That is the way that it quite often goes after each meal. I hate to miss a meal and I always want to know what it is that we are having and when.
When I'm offered fruit I will get grumpy and say I want sweets. I know lots of children are like that though. It's just I think I probably get more frustrated with it than other people do. The thing that makes me most frustrated is that Dad gets stuff for Mum and I don't get them. People buy me sweets but I don't get to eat them when I want, and sometimes I'm told I'm not allowed them at all.

I got sent out of class today at School during French for speaking when I wasn't asked to. I didn't realise that I had spoken out of turn so I didn't know what the teacher meant when she said one more time Lewis and I'll send you out.

No problems with bullies this week at school though, which is good. Billy the bully was off school for one day which was really cool.

Hope you all have a nice weekend.

Granddad gets conned

Granddad Mondo has been trying to get me a really cool play fort for the garden for a birthday gift. He ordered it ages ago and it should have been here three weeks ago. It has not arrived yet. So Granddad keeps trying to call them but they never reply so we are worried that he has been conned. I recommended calling the police. Uncle Martin is going down to see Granddad to help him out, because he's the clever one and you know what old people are like now a days!

I was really sad and he said he wanted to send me something for my birthday but I said no because he wasted all that money on the play fort and we haven't even got it. I feel quite disappointed that I could not get the fort, but I do not want to tell Granddad because I don't want him to get upset. He told me that he would be upset if I did not get anything from him, so he said he would send me some money down as I didn't know what I wanted, as I'm not really into much at the moment. I need to go and visit my Nan in Milton Keynes so that I can go to Toys R Us again, then I could find something.

Bottle stealers

Yesterday I took loads of bottles into school for DT that I had saved up for ages to make a sculpture. I put them in the other room but then they all got used by other children and now I don't have any for my work. It really upset me because all the teacher said was oh well they were used by other children. It really annoyed me as it took me ages to get them all and wash them out so that they were safe to use. If I'd known I couldnt use them straight away I would have saved them for next week to take in.

Dad said that he'll make sure I have more for next week but its not the point, and they'll probably just get nicked as well. It make me not want to go back to school today. So when I got up this morning I tried to say that I didnt feel well but mum and dad were too clever for me and realised so I had to go. It wasnt too bad and I enjoyed my lunch anyway.

Hope your week is going well, I've got football club tomorrow so something to look forward to :)

sorry I was ill

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I was ill for a few days and couldn't think properly about my blog until I felt a bit better.

I have had a stressful day today and came home from school feeling pretty grumpy. I had a bit of an argument with Mum. I got in from school and I just wanted to chillax and relax and the first thing that Mum said was that Dad had said I needed to tidy my room and practice my drums. So I moaned at her and then stormed off.

Eventually I calmed down and thought I might as well just get it over and done with. So by the time Dad got home from work I had practised my drums and my room was nearly tidy. I have decided though that I am not going to play with my toys anymore. Then I don't need to tidy them up again. I'll just play with my ds, computer and watch TV.

I am now only £110 away from reaching my £500 target. I'm sorry I haven't blogged but please, please keep donating.

late night again

Last night I had a late night again because Dad broke down in his company car when we went to get some petrol. I was so scared I couldn't stop shaking.

Dad had to go to Bristol for work today so he had a company car to go in. So last night he asked me if I wanted to come out with him to get some petrol in it ready for the morning. I thought that it sounded pretty boring but I didn't want him to go on his own and be lonely so I went with him. I wish I hadn't. Just as we got to the town the engine started to stop. Dad pulled onto a road that went down hill to try and jump start it. No idea what that means but thats what he said anyway. That meant that we ended up in a bit of town that had no one in it and it was really dark. Then the engine completely stopped and we couldn't get it started again.

I was really worried that Dad would get told off for breaking the car and then I realised that we were stuck miles away from home in the dark and got even more worried. I was sat in the back of the car shaking so much that Dad thought I was jumping around in the car because it was shaking.

Eventually dad calmed me down by telling me about the RAC. They are like the AA and come and fix cars. He told me that if they couldn't fix it they would take us home anyway. So dad rang them and then we just had to wait 45 minutes for them to get to us. The man was really nice and found out that it was a thing on the car that stops people from stealing it that had got stuck on but managed to switch it off with his special computer that he plugged into the car.

I was so happy to get home, but it was really late so I didnt get the chance to blog. So I wrote this down today and asked dad to type it for me as a punishment for making me have a late night :)

Speak to you all tomorrow.

Bully gets caught

Today after school, Billy the Bully 1 finally got caught being mean to me by a teacher. We had to go out tonight so I haven't had time to write this myself, so while I'm out I'm writing it down and Dad will put it up for me tonight.

Back to the main story. After school today Billy 1 was running down the hill bashing into me over and over again, only this time one of the teachers at my school saw him and shouted at him. But he tried to ignore it and got into his granddads car. So the teacher chased after it and stopped him from driving off and still told Billy off for being mean. It was well cool, all of the other children saw her stop the car. Hopefully now he's been told off for doing it it might stop for a while.

In other news. My poor jimmy cat is a bit ill. He's got something wrong on his ears. It looks like they've been burnt and now the fur has come off of one of them. The vets have given him some medicine and we've got some cream to put on it so hopefully it will get better really soon. It looks yukky at the moment though, the poor little man.

Thats it for now. Thanks to the new donators, only £110 to go till I reach my target now!

I love my Granddad

I got to see my crazy Granddad again last night and then he took me to school this morning. I miss him already. He is always so funny and cool. I wish I could see him more than I can, I always worry about him because of his poorly brain. He's hoping to come back down again in a few weeks. I hope he does, maybe he could come down during half term and we can spend even more time together. That would be so cool.

Granddad, if you are reading this, I love you and miss you, see you again really soon I hope.

After school today we had film club. We watched Carries War. It was about a girl and boy that got moved during the war. It was quite good. There was one person in it that I felt really sorry for. He couldn't talk properly and then a boy learns how to understand what he says. He reminded me of autistic children that can't talk. I don't know if Mr Johnny in the film was autistic though. It made me wish though that there was a National Autistic Society during the war to help people like this like they can now.

I'm hoping the weather is good tomorrow so I can go out and play a bit. Lets hope so.

Please keep donating, I want to get to that £500.

Quick visit with Granddad

Sorry I can't really talk tonight. My Granddad is going back to Liverpool tomorrow and he's taking me out for the night and then taking me to School in the morning.

I'll speak to you tomorrow.

Bully wins again :(

Well today the bully won. I didn't get hurt but Billy the Bully 1 came very close. I was pinned against a wall being threatened which wasn't very nice.

It all started at lunch time when I heard another boy swearing and I told the teacher, but she didn't believe me. Then when I went into the toilet that boy was in there with his cousin, which is Billy the Bully. I didn't realise that he was his cousin but it turns out that he is. Well then Billy grabbed hold of me and pinned me against the wall so that I couldn't move. The he said if you tell on him again I'm going to get you. I told him to get off of me and he said it again that he would get me again. He then let me go and I tried to get away, but as I did I tripped over his leg and fell against the wall, but when I did that I accidental knocked into the other boy. They then ran out and told the teacher that I had punched him. I didn't, I promise I didn't. I tried to tell the teacher what had happened but she believed the Billy and the other boy so I got told off and then had to miss break and made to sit away from the class.

So I think I got told off for being bullied. Dad is going to go in and speak to the teacher in the morning to sort it out. I wish I hadn't said anything to the teacher about the other boy swearing now.

I'll let you know what happens tomorrow.

Close call with the bullies

Today was the first time that Billy the Bully 1 has said anything nasty to me since we started back at school. Thats pretty good going really but it did scare me a little bit.
In the afternoon at school today he came over to me and said, "I'm going to kill you after school" I just ignored him and then he came back a few minutes later whilst the teacher was stood next to us and said "I'm really going to kill you after school". I don't think the teacher heard him, even though she was stood right next to us. So when school finished I was a bit nervous because mum and dad don't normally pick me up from School on a Tuesday. But then I saw that Billy's mum or dad had come to pick him up so there wasn't a problem at all.

So I just walked home quite happily, practised my drums again and then went off to my Drum lesson. Which was really cool by the way. On the way there dad asked if anything had happened at school today, like he always does, it gets a bit boring eventually! So I told him and mum what Billy 1 had done today. They asked me if I had told my teacher, and I told them that I hadn't. They wern't very happy with me. They keep telling me that if anyone does or says anything that I need to tell the teacher. But I don't want to be a tell tail. They said though that if I don't tell the teacher then my teach can't stop it from happening, and then when mum and dad talks to the teacher about it the teacher won't know whats going on. So I suppose I should tell her. I sort of just get used to some people being mean though really.

Hopefully nothing will happen tomorrow. I've also got some cool news about a play that I'm going to be in to tell you about but it's late now and I need to go to sleep apparently!

Check ya laters

What a weekend!

Firstly, sorry for not blogging for a while, I've been really busy as it was my Birthday yesterday. I'm now 10 years old. Sick or what!

I got loads of money and presents so I'm pretty much sorted now.

What was even better than the presents though was that my Uncle Martin has brought my crazy Granddad Mondo down to see me and I spent the whole weekend with him. It was really cool. We went to the beach, the fair and then funderzone, and I stayed with them in their holiday cottage. It was just the best ever. I love my granddad so much, I'm so happy my uncle brought him down for me.

In other news, I'm feeling a little bit disappointed that I've not had any new donations for over a week now. I hope people aren't getting bored of me.

One bit of good news though is that The National Autistic Society are going to right about me in their next newsletter because of what I'm doing on here. Which is really pretty cool, I might get famous!

Normal blogging will start again tomorrow so please come back and please donate, The National Autistic Society need all the help they can get.

Football time, sort of...

Things are still going quite well at school at the moment, no bullying at the moment. Makes a change.

Today we had the Arsenal Soccer School come to school after school for football club. When they came in to see us last week, they said it wouldn't be just football, it would be lots of different sports. This week was handball, next week is football then it's hockey.

We had three different teams, two teams played and the third team sat out. In the first game we won. Then the other teams played. Then we played the third team and we won that as well, which meant we won overall. We had goalies and other players. We were only allowed to take 2 steps and then only 2 seconds to pass it to another player or shoot. No one really passed to me, but I passed to other people. I got the ball when they dropped it instead. Whenever people took a shot and it was saved I managed to grab it and scored loads, but still didn't get passed to. I had people in my team that I do not really get on with very well, but I still really enjoyed it. I don't know why they didn't pass to me. I kept asking at half time, why they didn't pass to me and they just kept saying, I tried to, but I don't think they did.

I'm really looking forward to actually playing football next week. I'm hoping that I'll be with other people in my team.

I have a busy weekend coming up, so might not be able to blog on Saturday. My crazy granddad mondo is coming to see me for my birthday and I can't wait.

See you soon

Big school meeting

Today, mum and dad had a big meeting with my headmaster and teacher about how I've been and to talk about the extra help that they want to get me.
I don't know everything that was said but dad says the meeting went well and my teachers are really happy with the way this term is going, which means mum and dad are happy as well. They still want to get me extra help but there are things that I can do in class that does help me. Being at the back of the class now means that I'm not being distracted by things going on behind me. Also if I think that I'm struggling to concentrate or the teacher thinks I'm being disruptive I can just go out of the class and sit in the office for a little while and either keep doing the work or just relax for a few moments. This really helps me. Dad says that the school is also going to get some help from some other people that understand Aspergers as well and get some ideas about what do to help me. It's all kind of boring to me but dad says its important so worth telling you about.

The one think that I did think was cool was that although I didn't get onto the School council, I was second so I nearly made it, which means that some people in my class must think I'm pretty cool.

Drum lesson tomorrow so off to bed to get ready.

Deal or no deal

Today I got back from school, which was boring as always, and went out to play with one of my friends. Only in the street though as I'm still not allowed over to the park. Well anyway, I played out for a little while and came back in to go to the toilet and asked if I could stay out later. I was told I could go out until 6. So I went out again. I came back and complained to mum and dad that I should be allowed out later. I think I should be allowed to stay out later because everybody else gets to stay out until they have to go to bed, and I would only be in my street where mum and dad could see me from the window. They still said no, I had to be home at 6 :( I was not happy, but went out for my last 20 minutes and came back just before 6.

When I got back, mum gave me this amazing deal. Mum said that if I behave, and come back when they say and go to bed when they say all week until my birthday on Sunday when I'm 10 then they'll think about letting me out later. I was quite pleased with the deal, and decided to accept it.

Thank you for listening.

Today I got my collection bucket from The National Autistic Society so that I can collect money at school and things. I'm thinking of taking it to Tesco's for the day to get loads of money, what do you think?

I thought today that it was about time that I introduced you all to 3 of my best friends. Rosie, Jim and Titch. I thought of this because we've just got back from having to take poor little Rosie girl to the vets because she's got a nasty sore bit on her leg that she needed medicine for. She had to have 2 injections and then the vet put a collar on her, but she managed to get it off before we even got home.
This is Rosie
Rosie is a Bengal cat that likes to have her personal space, she gets really scared very very easily, and is really mouthy. She was our first cat.

Jim or Jimmy is a ginger tom cat and he's really a big wus, if Rosie and Titch are jumping all over him, he'll just sit there and let them attack him. He's the fluffiest of the lot. Here is Jim giving Rosie a cuddle.

Every time Jimmy goes out, he always comes back with an animal or sorts, that he has hunted, and killed.
Our last cat is the youngest. The one and only, the Titchster aka Titch. Titch is probably the fastest of the lot, and the hungriest, and tries to be the most adventurous. He is Rosie's kitten. His brother was called Romeo but he went to another home. Titch is about 4 months old now, here he is.

I love all of my cats, they are all really cool. 

Anyway, just one more day to go until the end of this week's give away, and no one has entered yet, which is really disappointing. Please enter if you can, even a pound will make a difference. Just go to to donate, leave a comment on the blog and please remember not to claim gift aid if you want the socks. It's really easy, please do it.

Off to see my Great Nanny tomorrow.
See you soon

Yay the weekend

The weekend is here at last. I love Friday's because I get to stay up a bit later and we sometimes have chinese for tea! And tonight we did :)

I hurt my head today. I was trying to scare someone at school and pulled the door open to say boo and really hit my head hard on it, and left a pretty big bump. Dad said I should have told the teacher but what's the point, it's not going to kill me!

I am also a bit angry at the moment though. It's a bit sad because I'm still not allowed to go out to the park. I think I've learnt enough to know that I have to look properly when I cross the road. I think it's really unfair. I think mum and dad won't let me because they hate me. They really said that they are really afraid that I'll get hurt, because I get distracted by things and might run across the road. But I think I know that even if someone calls me and says hey Lewis, quick come here, we are playing a really cool game, that I'd still make sure I look.

I think that when they know I'm going to try that they might let me. All I get told is that, no you can't because you'll get yourself killed, but I'm flippin not!

I know that what I need to do is prove that I can be trusted, but it's not easy when I get annoyed or upset because I go out and then come home early because everyone else has left my street and gone over the the park.

Hopefully soon I'll get it right!

Wish me luck

School still cool

Firstly no one has entered my give away for Sock Shop socks. All you need to do is donate and leave a comment. Come on please help me out here!

So far this term I'm still being pretty good at school and not getting sent out of class. I've only been sent out once since school started. I'm trying really hard because it's a new year and a new start. Thats what I was told at the end of the year and thats what I'm doing. A couple of times I've been given warnings but managed to calm down and then don't get told off.

In literacy we've been writing stories and I think I'm the best in my year at the moment. My worst lesson is French and thats tomorrow. I'm supposed to be winning a prize for remembering French words for each letter of the alphabet.

I hope your week is going as well as mine so far, I havent even been told off at home yet! How cool is that?

Speak to you tomorrow after French yuk!

Sad story

There was something that I read the other day about a girl that had just found out that summer that she had aspergers. She kept asking her mum to kill her! Tragic! She thought she had no friends and that everybody didn't like her and she was bullied. She told her mum that her only friend was Jesus and that the only way she could see him was if her mum killed her. It really made me feel sad to hear about that. I have tried to hurt myself in the past, I don't know why, dad says I would just get really frustrated and then bang my head. I'm better with that sort of thing now. Now I just throw things around rather than hurt myself.

I really hope that she soon realises that having aspergers can have certain benefits, like the person person that invented Windows is supposed to have asperger's and a man call Einstein who was supposed to be really clever. It makes me have a really good memory and I think it makes me really like animals and want to help them.

The National Autistic society can help little girls like this, by getting them to talk to special doctors. That is why I'm trying to do this. To help people like that.

Please keep donating and I'll speak to you soon.

I had a really good day at school today. We met a really good artist called Claire Barker, this is her website - she's really nice and I really enjoyed having our art lesson with her.
I drew a zombie wizard, and the a cool double faced go compare fat man head. When you look at it one way he is an evil person and then when you turn it over he's a sad person. It was great fun.

Tuesday's are always my favourite day at school, because it's always art or DT in the afternoon and the teacher with have is really nice. I was thinking that I don't remember ever being sent out of her class every since starting at this school. Dad says I've been going there for a year now. I couldn't believe it had been that long. A year has gone really fast I think.

I can still remember my last school that I went to. I didn't really like it there. I had a lot of friends but there was also a lot of bullies there. I even had one boy jump up and down on my head on a space hopper once. There are still some bullies where I live now and at my school now, but it is much much better.

I also asked at school if we could do a non-uniform day at school for The National Autistic Society soon as well. Hopefully they'll say yes and then I can raise more money.

Don't forget my give away, please just donate and you could win.

See ya tomorrow,

Thats the good news for today. But unfortunately I had a good day today go horribly wrong, when I got angry at Dad for not letting me go back out and ended up hitting him in the face. Luckily for me Dad knows what I'm like at times and can cope with it. I have said sorry. I don't really want to talk about it though because I still feel really sad about it now. I am grounded again now though :( Suppose I deserve it though, and I've got to tidy my room again because I threw loads of stuff around.

Back to school tomorrow so hopefully will have a good day.

Friday at last!

Well I've made it to the end of the week without any bullies getting me. So a good week really.

Today at school we had a big write. Which is where you write a big story. It happens every Friday. I done three sides of writing and had still not finished! Everyone made up their own story and I made up that I was climbing Mount Everest. I didn't even have to speak to the teachers. In fact I was trying to concentrate on it so much that the teacher had to tell me to stop for break time and all the other children were walking past me.
I have a table on my own at the moment at the back of the room so that I don't distract the other children or get distracted by them. It does not always work because I can see everything in front of me, but at least I'm not turning around to look at stuff. I think I should be allowed to sit with other people though. At the moment a teaching assistant sits with me when the teacher is talking but she does not help me, she is just there to make me behave I think.

Then we had maths, writing down sums, it was all on white boards today and it was really easy. The lesson was called 3 more for the price of 2. So my teacher had to give us a sum and then using those numbers I had to make 3 other sums. I was easy.

After lunch we had French. I got a really bad report for French, because I don't listen. Today I got on quite well though. Then we had music, and I'm good at that. We made songs on the computer by singing into it and playing different instruments. It was really cool.

I remembered earlier that I got sent out of my classroom yesterday during RE for saying silly jokes, but that's the only time this week that I was sent out. That's really good for me!

I've only got £160 to go to get to my target now, so please keep donating and you could win some cool socks as well.
Hope you all have a good weekend.

2nd School day

Today at School I had another good day. In the morning we had spelling and after that we did maths. It was a little harder than yesterday but it was still easy enough today. My teacher said that my hand writing is getting better too. She said I might be a level 5 soon, but that's probably when I get to the end of year six!

At morning break it was supposed to be infants turn for football but the juniors still managed to get to play as well. I think if mum and dad have another baby it should be called Lewis Junior :)

Bully update! No news to report today at school, but Billy the bully 1 did turn up in my street after school when I was out playing, so I just went home straight away.

Year 5 finally

I got back to school today. At last I am a year 5. It was really fun for the first day back, because we got to do easy maths in the morning that I understood. The in the afternoon we did simple (to me anyway) history and football! What a day! In history we learnt about centuries and decades. I thought that a century was 10 years and a decade was 100 but apparently it's the other way around! Who knew!
In maths we counted in thousands and I put my hand up for every single question, even when I was not supposed to.

I also took a letter into school for my teacher today from Mum and Dad because they want to have a meeting about getting me the extra help I wish I had. Apparently Mum and Dad aint happy with what's going on.

Billy the Bully 1 was there today left me alone. He joined in with football at break time but didn't do anything nasty then either.

So really today was cool.

Please please take part in my give away. At the moment I'm going to have to keep them all. Even a £1 donation will give you a chance to win. So come on people, donate, donate, donate!


Tuesday, 4 September 2012


We received a letter today from the people who sort out the special needs at school. I was sad because it said that I cannot get any help at school. They have said that it is because my teachers have not done things that they were supposed to do. So now I can't get any help for at least 6 months and year 5 will almost be over! I don't know why people don't want to help me, it makes me think I am bad and doing things wrong. All I want to do is get a little bit of help so that I can understand what I'm supposed to do and to try and keep me calm.

Tomorrow I will be a year 5 and going back to school. I'm excited to be going back, but also worried about how hard the work will be. I am also worried about Billy the Bully 1 as he'll still be at school and as he is in year 6 now he might be even worse. If he does do anything mean, I hope my teacher believes me if I tell her.

It is a fresh new start tomorrow so I'm going to try really hard to get a better school report than I got in year 4.  I am excited about being one of the big boys because they are always going to the back on school trips.

Other than that I just need to say, please keep donating to be in with a chance of winning the socks! Remember every donation, big or small, will get an entry to get well over £10's worth of socks from the awesome Sock Shop.

Anyway, Mum says I have to have an early night tonight so see ya tomorrow peeps.

The great sock give away

Hi All,

Well I'm back from my little break with grandma and granddad and it was fab. I was going to tell you about it but I've got other things to say!

Remember I said I don't like seems in my socks or anything yukky like that. Well the cool people that work at The Sock Shop found my blog and sent me some more! How cool is that! I think you should all go and by some because they are really comfy! Dad said I should put this bit in though that Katrina at The Sock Shop said about their seemless socks:

I just wanted to let you know that on the site we refer to our seamless toe socks as ‘hand linked toe socks’. What this means is that the seam has been created by linking the stitches of the two sides together with one thread, which creates a comfortable, flat seam.

We call it this so it doesn’t cause confusion for our customers - so they know that while there is still a seam there, it is flat and much more comfortable, and essentially the sock feels like its seamless.

I can tell you they are really comfy. So go buy some. Or you could win a selection of socks from here! Yes you heard it, you could win some this week from here. Along with my socks they also were really nice and sent a mixture of other boys and girls socks. So I'm going to give them away to 2 lucky winners.

This week and next week. If you donate I'll put your name in the hat to win them. Dad says we are going to use a thing called Random Picker to draw who wins! This week I'm giving away boy socks.

So just donate all this week and then put a comment on here and then on Sunday after 1pm I'll announce the lucky winner.

Dad says I've also got to say that you need to make sure that you do not claim gift aid if you are entering the competition as that's what the just giving rules are. And you need to be in the UK because I haven't got enough pocket money to send anywhere else.

So just to say again. If you donate this week to my Just Giving page up until Sunday at 1pm I will add you in to win some boys socks from The Sock Shop.

Here's just one of the pairs!

So good luck everyone and get donating!!!

mmmm Pizza

Today mum and dad took me to pizza hut! Was it good I hear you cry.... Yes! It was goooood.
I got a bit excited whilst I was there and couldnt stop laughing! I was then pretty hyper and could not calm down, but didn't get in trouble, thanks mum and dad. Mum and Dad blamed it on the 2 glasses of Tango that I drank. I blame it on Dad having the biggest bowl of ice cream from the ice cream factory that I have ever seen! Mum was also a bit shocked at the size of the bowl.

Dad had a great email today from The Sock Shop. I'll tell you more about it very soon hopefully.

I will be going on a little holiday for the weekend with Grandma and Granddad tomorrow morning so I won't be able to post anything for a couple of days. But will hopefully have lots to say when I get back. I'm hoping to be back in time to blog again on Sunday.

Speak to you all soon, please please keep donating and I hope you have a great weekend.

Donkey Day

Today I went to see my great nan, and she really is great. We decided to go to the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth. When we got to the Donkey Sanctuary, we went straight to have lunch. I had a tuna mayo and sweetcorn sandwich and mum, dad and nan all had a pannini. Then we all had a slice of cake.
After that we headed outside but it was raining still, but it was getting brighter so we had a look around and stroked some lovely old donkeys. The funniest part of the day was when one of the Donkeys was pulling on another donkey's coller and pulled it off. We then headed over to the gift shop where we had a look around. I found some donkey mittens, but decided it was not the time to get those yet. But I did find a cool little pencil with a donkey on the top of it, nanny got it for me and got mum a donkey letter rack. She also got a doormat and a pink bag.
What was typical was that it had been a bit wet and windy all the time we were there and then just as we left it started to get really warm and sunny!

I am hoping to go back to the donkey sanctuary soon as there is a special centre there called The Elisabeth Svendson Trust for Children and Donkeys. They do special sessions called riding therapy for children with special needs. I think it would be really cool to go there and ride some donkeys and groom them as well.

When we left there we went back to nanny's house to see my great aunty and their cute little dog Kez. Kez is a little white bichon frise.

Thanks again for reading my blog, you are awsome. See you late dudes.

Uh oh

I was in trouble again today. Dad had to speak to me again about arguing and back chat. I still don't know what the problem is really. If I don't agree with something I just say so. The bad thing is that I keep arguing even when I don't really want to. Hopefully I'll stop soon because I keep getting in trouble for it.
Mum says I might be over tired and is going to make me go to bed earlier, and that I might be bored. Well she's got that right. I was bored today, until my drum lesson. Apparently I'm going to be sent to bed at 7 unless it's drum night from now on. We'll see

Thats it for today. I'm off to see my great nanny tomorrow, and I had better behave.

Back to school soon

Not much going on today, but I've been thinking about going back to school in just over a week! I'm quite excited really as I'll be becoming a year 5. I'll be able to be in the school football team if I'm good enough, I might even be able to do basketball and volleyball.
The other cool thing is that even though it might rain loads I'll still get to see my friends everyday and have loads of fun at lunch times and break times.

I really like DT, building stuff, because I get to use a saw and other tools to make things and see a finished product. PE and games is always better than being in the classroom. I love music because I'm good at it. Science can be hard but I really like the experiments.

The bad bits though are all lessons apart from PE, art, music and science I absolutely hate. Because I find them boring, and also a bit hard. Even with science I like to just get straight to it, and not do the planning of it. When I find things boring at school, I usually give up easily and daydream. The problem with that is then though that I get punished, and sent out of the class, or have to stay in at break time. If I could get a little bit more help at the beginning of the lesson to explain what the teacher is saying and then I wouldn't get bored. I would really like to have a helper work with me during the lessons. I have always done really well when a teacher has spent more time with me, and I even surprise them with the amount of work that I can do without being sent out of the class. I find it really annoying and sad when I don't get what the teacher has said and then I get sent out of the class and have to stay behind. I really think I should get more help, so that I can do more work better.

I don't think that my teachers will really like my blog. I like being treated the same as all the other children, but sometimes I think I should get that little bit of extra help, and maybe get an extra warning than the other children get because of my problems.
I've heard mum and dad say that that they want me to do as well as I can do, not just enough to make the teachers think I'm doing OK.

I actually think that I'm not going to be very good at interviews when I get older. Because I think I'm doing so rubbish now. But I'm not going to give up because I want to get a good job to help lots of animals. Or maybe be a famous drummer!

Thank you for reading and hopefully I'll speak to you tomorrow after drums!

A dogs trust dog

Yesterday I went out with my Daddy, and we went to Dogs Trust Ilfracombe. I took a dog out for a walk who's name was Suzie.
We took Suzie into Braunton for a nice walk. We got Suzie out of the car and it started to rain. We had to hide under a shelter for a little while to wait for the rain to stop a bit. It was actually quite good because it meant I got to give Suzie lots of extra strokes and pats.
Then we started to walk on a bit more but I was cold because I had forgotten my jumper. Luckily as we walked past a charity shop I saw a nice hooded top that was only £1 so I got it. It was nice and warm.
On the walk we went to see my great great aunty, and I had lunch there with Suzie and Daddy. I left my aunts house and we carried on the walk. The rain had stopped then so it was really nice. Here's a picture of me walking Suzie.

When I get stressed, the thing that will always calm me down is a dog or any sort of animal that you can pet. I really like animals because a lot of them are nice and cuddly. I also like big beasts that a lot of people think are scary like snakes and lizards. My Grandad's friend in Liverpool has a corn snake, and I like it loads. I've even got ones of its shredded skins!
When I get older I want got to a special college that you can go to that teaches you ordinary lessons and also how to help animals, like how to look after horses and animal care as well. It's called Bicton College, and looks really cool. Then when I am finished at school I really want to work with animals, maybe at a zoo or something like that. But also I want to be in a band of course, playing my drums.

I really enjoy helping the dogs at dogs trust by taking them out for walks, when I'm old enough I am hoping I can go there and help out a bit more in the kennels. If you would like to adopt Suzie or any other dog please visit the Dogs Trust website here:

After we took Suzie back to Dogs Trust we went to the Fair ground! It was so much fun! I went on a little play house, but it was not as good as I hoped, I thought it was more for 5 or 6 year old's not nearly 10. I also went on the dodgems, where I was only against 1 other person but we beat them fair and square. We hit them loads and they only got us a couple of times. I rocked! Then I went on a ride called the Laser Dome mwa ha ha ha ha. Dad says its called a waltzer. It made really dizzy, because it went really fast round, I was struggling to keep my legs inside!

Please remember to keep donating and I'll speak to you soon.

What a busy day

Hi everyone, I've had a great day out today with Dad and only just got in so I'll let you know all about it tomorrow as its a bit late now.

Her name is Suzie, I'll let you know about her tomorrow.

Speak soon

I'm trying to think of extra ideas to raise money for #autism and The National Autistic Society. I am going to do a sponsored walk with Dad. We are going to walk from Barnstaple to Bideford, which is about 10 miles, and carry a bucket for people to put money in.

I am also going to try and do a give away on here. I've been trying to find companies to donate prizes to me, but so far no-one wants to. If you know anyone that does please can you get them to email me Here is my email address

So if you can help then please get in touch.

I'm going out for the day tomorrow with Dad, we haven't spent the day together for ages so it should be cool. We are hoping to go to Dogs Trust and take a dog for a walk. We used to do it a lot before we moved. This is the dog I want to take out, his name is Ted.

Maybe you live in Devon and you would like to adopt Ted. If you do please contact Dogs Trust. They are great.

See you tomorrow Ted, and speak to you lot tomorrow as well.

trouble again

I've had a bad day today, I'm struggling with things apparently. Mum got upset with me because I keep arguing with her and telling lies. When Dad got home he took me out for a chat.
He asked my why I've been lying and why I've been arguing so much. I don't like talking like that but I didn't have a choice and at least I wasn't being told off.

Dad said I should put this in my blog so I wrote it all down and asked him to put it onto my blog for me.

I said that some of it is because I've been bored, and then getting grumpy, so thats why I've been arguing. Then the reason that I've been lying is to not get in trouble for things.

The problem is that Mum and Dad have said that I've ended up telling so many fibs that they don't believe me when I am telling the truth. And yes, before you say it, I do know about the boy who cried wolf. But when I am telling the truth I get really angry when they don't believe me!

The chat did help, and I'm going to try and calm down. Just watch this space!

But I love my Mum and Dad loads, so I am going to try hard.


Wednesday, 22 August 2012


Hello again, so nice to see you. Sorry I could not talk to you yesterday, the temptation of the drums took over and I stayed on them all day, except for lunch time, until it was time to go to my Grandma's house. So we went there and had yummy fish and chips. After that I went and had my drum lesson and learnt a really wicked drum fill for the Queens of the Stoneage song that I am learning.

Today though, I've been really bored because I haven't been allowed out all day. I got grounded for a day again yesterday lunch time because I walked out into the middle of the road to speak to Mum and Dad who were in the car and didn't look at all. A car came along and I nearly go hit. Luckily Mum and Dad were screaming at me to stop. It is a problem that I have sometimes that I don't really think about what is going on around me, I just like to concentrate on what I'm doing and ignore everything else. Mum and Dad were really angry with me but I didn't see the big deal really, it's not like I got killed or anything!

So today has been boring, there wasn't even any good TV shows on today, so I'm a bit grumpy.

One more thing. Please donate. I'm over half way to my target and getting lots of people looking at my blog now. Dad said that if everyone that visited donated just £1 I would have nearly £3000. So please just use the mobile phone number and text £1 to us, it will make all the difference apparently. And please tell everyone you know about me to get them to look.

Speak to you tomorrow!

What a day!

I went to the beach today, to see Mums friend and her 2 sons, that I'll call Friend A and Friend B. We went to Woolacombe beach. When we arrived there Friend A and B were all ready in the sea. So I just ran down into the sea to meet them whilst Mum carried all of the bags down.

We tried to go body boarding but the life guards said we would have to move a long way down the beach because of currents in the sea. That was a bit of a shame but it was still really fun. After a little while we had some crisps and then paddled around a bit more. Mum went in for a little while until the waves started getting her dress wet.

We then went and had some lunch. It was really nice. Me, friend A and B all had chicken nuggets, Mum and scampi and her Friend had a huge salad. Then we got to have an ice cream. Yay.

Then we went back to the beach to play, and build sand castles. We tried to have a sand castle competition but none of us done too well.

Then Mum said we had to go, becuase we had to pick Dad up from work. I didn't want to leave and got a bit sad. But it was a really good day, and I did feel like I needed a shower to get the sand off.

Here is a picture of the fantastic Woolacombe beach!

What a day.


oh no!

Our car won't start today. Hopefully the mechanic can fix it in time to get to Woolacombe today!!!

A good day!

Today has been pretty good. Today was a good day because I managed to go out and there were no bullies around. This meant I could go out much longer and had loads of fun with my friends.

My lunch was lovely and then I had tea. That was great as well, but then Dad burnt the apple pie! But it didn't taste too bad!!

The worst part of the day was Dad cutting my toe nails. I hate having it done and had to hold mums hand and look away whilst it was being done. But we got through it and it wasn't too bad. It never is, but I still always hate it!

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, because Mum is taking me out with her friend and her children to Woolacombe beach. I hope the weather is better, it's been warm today but still cloudy with a bit of rain this morning.

Speak to you all tomoz!

Bullies strike again

I was really looking forward to today. I was hoping to be able to go to a fete nearby us, then watch Chittlehamapton Football team play football for the first time this season, and then go to Grandma and Granddads house for a Chinese tea.

I was really upset when I woke up this morning because it was raining, yet again. That meant that the first thing I was looking forward to doing today was cancelled.

Luckily it stopped raining in time for me to go and watch the football. It was really cool. I got to play football at the same time as watching them. The only problem with that was that playing football with sandals on is not easy, and I got really really muddy feet. Half time came so it was time to go and check in with Mum and Dad to see if I could go back. They commented on how dirty I was but still let me go back. Which was really good, because Chittlehampton were winning 2-0.

So I went back and carried on playing and watching. Then along came Billy 1 and Billy 2 the bullies. I tried to ignore them but the seemed to just head straight for me. Billy 1 grabbed me and Billy 2 helped him to throw me over his shoulder. It really hurt, and no one stopped them. I really hate them because they ruined my fun again. I went home hurt and upset.

It did get better though because I still had my Chinese and Saw Grandma and Granddad.

Check you laters.

Granddad Mondo is Mad!

This is my Granddad. As you can see, he is very very mad. He likes climbing trees! He lives in Liverpool, which is also my favourite football team. I don't get to see my Granddad very often, because he lives so far away, and I miss him lots.

He was going to come and visit me over the summer holidays but he has had to go to hospital so he wasn't well enough to come down. So he is going to come and visit me over my birthday in September instead. I'm going to stay with him and my Uncle for one night at their holiday cottage they are going to be staying at. It will be the night before my Birthday so I'll get to spend time with him, Uncle Martin and Aunty Vicky.

Granddad was in hospital because he is very poorly, because he has cancer in his brain. One day whilst he was in hospital the doctors told him that because he had been poorly he needed to try to walk again. But Granddad didn't just think to go with someone he just went off on his own for ages, and the hospital ended up getting the police to look for him!

I really love my Granddad. He is really brave, he has kept going along with brain cancer for as long as I've been alive and he keeps going and going. He's said that he keeps not giving up because of me, because I'm an inspiration to him. But really he is the one that is an inspiration.

I get really worried about him, and how well he is and even if he'll make it to the end of the year, but my Granddad is one tough puppy, and I know he'll never give up on us.

He has to make a really hard decision about if he should have an operation to try and help him live a few years, but possibly make him worse, or just to let things go and see what happens normally, but he doesn't know how long he would live without the operation. If it was me, I'd really want to know how long I would live without doing it before I could decide. But I know Granddad will make the right decision.

All I know is that I am really really looking forward to seeing him in September.

This is Lewis Alexander Jones Robinson, over and out!

Bad days and good days

Bad days and good days. The slightest thing that is good, that I get excited about can make me really happy. Like if I get a new little toy or going to visit family, will make me really happy and can turn a day into a good day.
But, the slightest thing that is bad can make me get really upset. Things like if we are expecting to go somewhere like my Grandma's and something happens that means that we can't go. These things can ruin a whole day for me, even if they don't seem that huge when I think about it another day.
When its a good day I feel excited because I know I can look forward to things. I am always better behaved when I'm having a good day and try to help out with things and do nice things for Mum and Dad.
When I'm having a bad day, I get really angry and and argue with everyone. I sometimes throw things around my room and slam doors. I've slammed my bedroom door so much that I've even broken the door handle. I also do not take things seriously when I start to get told off for things and just laugh at Mum and Dad, which makes things worse.
I think that I have more bad days than good days, but Mum and Dad says that I do not, it's just that I always think about the bad things more than the good days.

Today I think I've had a bad day, it's been boring and miserable. I've argued with Mum and Dad this evening, but they've said that it couldn't have been a too bad day because I've had one of my best tea's which is Chinese, and been out playing for a while.

I guess it's just how I feel about things.

Booo to all bullies

I get bullied quite a lot. At school and after school. There is a boy, that I will call Billy the Bully 1. He threatens to hurt me after school and then after school he sometimes throws me against a really spiky wall, and it hurts a lot. I tried to stick near other children's parents, but they don't seem to care, they just walk right past.
There is also another bully that I will call Billy the Bully 2. He doesn't go to my school but is always out in the village. So quite often I can't go out to play because he is mean when I do. He also threatens to do stuff to me. When I have not done anything to Billy 2, and I look down the park to see if he is there. If he is there and see's me he sneaks around to the other side of the village hall and catches me and tries to hurt me. I think he is a total jerk. He is not only mean to me, he is also nasty to other children, but he seems to chase me more than others.
The is another bully called Billy the Bully 3 that does not even live here but comes to visit. He is quite a bit older than me but still gets nasty. He is quite similar to Billy 2, because he still sometimes hurts me.

I feel sad and angry when these bullies hurt me. It makes me want to run away and go home, but often I can't because they are faster and stronger than me and catch me or stop me from getting away. It makes me feel frustrated as well because even though they are the nasty ones it is me that has to stay in doors and not have fun, when they get to go out when ever they like.

I think that the parents of these bullies should tell them that if they do things more than 5 times to a child they should get sent away to a naughty boy school or at least get grounded. It is just not fair that I have to suffer because they get away with being mean. I don't understand my children can be nasty to other children. I always try to be nice to other children, especially if they are younger than me. All of my bullies are older than me so should know better.

I hope that one day people like me can go out and play without anyone being nasty to them and making them sad. It just takes nicer people to make the bullies realise how crewel they are.

Here come the drums!

I nearly forgot to blog today because I've been really busy today. Luckily Dad said he'd type it into the blog for me if I wrote it. So I did.
I've been busy today getting ready for my drum lesson tomorrow. I love playing the drums for a couple of reasons. One, because I'm really good at it, and two because it calms me down when I play them. I like to really hit them all really hard before I start to play properly. Mum and Dad don't like it but it gets me ready to concentrate on my practice.
I've been having lessons for nearly 2 years now and my teacher says that I'm the best person in my age group that he teaches.
Dad always thinks its funny that I am sometimes clumsy when I go out and trip over things, but when I sit in front of my drum kit, I can move my hands and feet all in time as if it's really easy.
I would really recomend that other children like me learn an instrument, and the drums is the best. That's what I think anyway!

Sorry it's a bit short today.

Oops I had a minor meltdown!

Today I have to blog about something I really don't want to talk about. I had a bit of an argument with dad this morning and I got angry. Here's what happened.
Dad called me into his bedroom to talk to me, he told me that I needed to tidy my room if I wanted to go out to see some BMX racing. I didn't want to tidy my room and started to get angry instead. I started to moan and dad tickled me and told me to just go and sort my room out. That actually made me even more angrier so I grabbed dads face and tried to squeeze it to hurt him. Dad shouted at me and told me to go to my room to calm down. As I got up I grabbed mums and dressing gown and swung it around, hit hit a can of coke that was on the side and knocked it flying and it went all over the floor.
That meant that I didn't get to go to the BMX race, and see someone who used to be the world champion BMX rider, because Dad was really mean and wouldn't let me go.
I didn't want to hurt Dad, because I love him and I don't want to do things like that. I was just really angry and don't always like it when Dad tickles me.
I did not want to write about this because I don't like writing about bad things, I like writing about the fun things. Dad said that this sort of thing is a really good thing to write about on my blog, because I can't just write down all the fun things. I think he is probably right, which is why I did it even though I didn't want to.
To calm down, I have found a new place to go. I put my head between to really heavy cushions on the sofa. I like it because it makes my head feel all secure and peaceful. It's like a dark ball around my head, but tighter. I'm hoping to get a special blanket that is really heavy soon, I think it will be really nice and secure on me. Like this one Heavy blanket

Good thing goes bad!

In the morning today I went out on my bike for an hour. When I got back we went out for lunch to the pub. While we were there we met one of Mum's friends. She brought her husband, along and we sat at the table and had a pint! Her husband was really funny and brought us a coke.
After lunch we saw a man dressed up as a woman!
We went home to get ready to go to the fete at the village hall. We had a go on some games but then I went on a horse ride. I really liked the horse because it was the biggest one there and black and cute. The horses name was Melvin.
It was really lucky that I went on that ride because I saw my bike that I must have left at the park in the morning. So all the way back down on the horse I was worried that Dad would be really angry! My bike helmet was not there though but we managed to find it. It was not the place where I had left it and neither was my bike, so someone must of rode on it without my permission. My helmet was in the thorny bushes and my bike was miles away from where I had left it. So at the end of the day it was all OK. I have been grounded for 2 days though for leaving my bike, but I did not mean to.

I think that my Asperger's might have played a part in it because it made me forget that I had taken my bike, even though I do have a good memory for facts and things. I think the reason that I forgot it was because I get easily distracted by things. I was playing with the coconut shy whilst it was being set up for the fete. I'm really surprised that I didn't remember my bike because I was looking straight at it whilst playing. I then realised what the time was and knew that I had to get home. I hate being late for anything so just ran home, completely forgetting my bike.

I felt really sad for being grounded and missing the dog show part of the fete. So the day had started really well, I had a lovely time and then it all went wrong because of one little mistake. But at least I've still got my bike and still ha d a ride on Melvin.

My Trip

Well the place Mum took me was Ilfracombe. We went into the arcades, and then we went for lunch. Mum had sausage and chips and my Aunty Bet had scampi and chips. I had the best, because I had fish and chips.
Then we went to the beach for a little while and I played around on the rocks and jumped over a little stream. Mum wouldn't let me go in the water though.

After that we went to get the best bit of the day. An ice cream from the Hockings Ice cream van. Also in the queue was a lady and her step dad who we were not meant to see until next week! The lady had 2 children with her that I played with, we tried to break the world record of the triple jump but did not succeed, not even close! The lady was a friend of Mum's that she knows from facebook who does crafting, like Mum does. We are hoping to go and see them for the day next week.

Also today a great letter arrived from The National Autistic Society to help me with my fund raising. It's given me loads of ideas on what I can do. I'm now planning a sponsered run, and sponsored bike ride, a sponsered silence and loads more. The even sent me a T-Shirt. I'll get a photo to put on here of me wearing it over the weekend.

The book also tells you how some of the money I raise can help people. This is what it says:
£5 could pay for the worried parents of two newly diagnosed children to recieve an information pack with the advice they need at this crucial time.
£50 helps pay for a befriender to meet regularly with someone with autism and stop the cycle of isolation.
So far I've raised £55 so thanks to all of you that have donated we have already done both of the things in the book!

Thank you to the people that work with Dad for the sponsors today.


Excited and nervous

Mum is taking me out today. Which is great. I am hoping we can go somewhere where I can get hockings ice cream, because it is the best.

The problem is, that she hasn't told me yet where or when we are going and that makes me nervous. I always like to know what we are doing and the times that we are doing it so that I can make sure we stick to it and don't be late. Mum says it's one of my things. I just think that if we are going to do something we should stick to it. Thats why sometimes if we have gone out and then we end up doing something that I don't know about I get worried and then sometimes get really angry. Mum and Dad usually tell me whats happening for the day, but sometimes they try to test me by not telling me or doing something different, just so that I can learn to try and cope with it. It has worked because I'm much better than I used to be at not getting angry but I do still get nervous.

I actually normally find it quite difficult to talk about things like this. What some people think is unusual is just normal to me. So it takes me ages to write about it. I really hope people who read it understand what I'm talking about.

Hopefully later on I can let you know what happened, the weather looks nice again so could be a lovely day.

I like Asperger's

I get asked a lot about my Asperger's by people that know me and know I have it. I remember being asked if I would change myself if I could. My answer has now become that I like my Asperger's, because if I did not have Asperger's I would not be me.

It took a long time for the Mum and Dad to find out that I had Asperger's. Mum says it took nearly 5 years all together. Which is quite a long time. I remember when Mum and Dad were trying to find out what made me behave the way I do that I used to ask her when the doctors were going to take the bad me away. I was even in the North Devon Journal on the front page because of how long it was taking.

That was nearly three years ago now and now that I am nearly 10 I think I understand myself more. It doesn't stop me from getting in trouble though. That's why I think that all people with autism should get special help at school and at home.

I think that at school children should get independent help. I remember a boy at my old school who had a person to sit with him and explain what the teacher was talking about. A couple of times I had that person help me and I got lots and lots of really good work done.

At home I think that someone should come and talk to the children and their families to help them to understand them better.

If I had help at school I would be able to concentrate better and no one would be able to bully me and the teachers might understand me better and not blame me when things happen that are not my fault. When I go back to school I am going to write about what happens at school each day.

It's been really sunny and hot today and I forgot to drink lots so I have a headache tonight, but I had lots of fun out with my friends though.

Thanks for reading and please donate :)

I hate socks!

One of the things that my Asperger's is really bad for me is the way socks feel on my feet.

If I get them even the slightest bit wet, just a couple of drips, I just cannot wear them. I just feel like I so cannot wear them, that I have to change them.

If there is a thread on them and it catches on my toe nails I HAVE to get another pair. In fact even the seam in the end of the socks really bugs me. My Mum and Dad have even bought me some special socks without seams to try and help. This is the place that they got them. Hopefully if other people feel the same way as I do they might be able to get some too. The Sock Shop

I am actually enjoying the summer holidays at the moment as it means I can wear my crocs or sandals and not have to wear those horrible socks at all at the moment.

One day me, Dad and Mum went on a walk to a forest. It was a nature walk so it was not abandoned. On the walk we saw lots of wildlife and while we were walking through the wood-chip parts I kept getting loads of wood-chips in my crocs. So I told Dad that I had to get some socks from home but he said, get over it, as there were lots of people walking around with shoes like mine and it was not bothering them. I could not get over it and kept stopping to empty my crocs every few steps. Eventually Dad let me use his socks! Which was really nice of him, but they were a bit big! So Dad folded them over to fit me.
If you look closely at my feet you can see those big smelly socks!

So I suppose socks do have a purpose. I just cannot stand having anything slightly uncomfortable against my toes or feet.

If you feel the same way as I do, please let me know. Email your stories to me at

Hope you are having a great summer. See you tomorrow.

Your stories

Good morning all you tens of people that might be reading this blog already :)

I had an idea that it would be nice if I could also help other children tell their story. So if you are under 18 and have Asperger's or any other ASD then please email me your experiences, then I can put them on here with mine.

Email your stories to

See ya

Welcome to my Blog :)

The idea of this blog is to show everyone what life is like being me.

Last weekend I was speaking to my Dad, saying that I wanted to try and raise some money for The Autistic Society, to help other people like me. We spoke about different things I could do and decided on trying to make people realise how having this problem effects me. 

So Dad set up this blog for me and I am going to write about my experiences on a day to day basis. The things I finds hard, the things I finds easy, the bullying and the friends I have.

Hopefully it will help people to understand that us people with Asperger's are not bad or naughty people, and might like to help us by donating to The Autistic Society, so that they can keep helping loads of children like me.

So please use the links on the side to give as much or as little as you can.

Thank you.

Lewis :)
