DS's first ever imaginitive play was inspired by the sock monkey I made as a cheap stocking filler for Xmas 2012. He was 7. It sparked a bit of a playground craze. I think it's the very simple huge smile and button eyes of the features that he liked.
Worth considering for others grappling with social imagination as it's so rare to get any SN aides that don't cost a fortune? (I get the socks from Primark as they do a range of nice stripey ones with heels and toes). I was over the moon as I'd given up hope in this area at that point.
I like sewing/fabric painting but will leave the knitting and crochet at the door, having had several goes over the years.
ouryve, oooh I'm on ravelry too, finally got round to it a few months back, which group if you're up for a new member? I seem to lose a lot of time on ravelry I wondered why I got taken off the diclofenac, I have vague dx of disc and hip issues thanks to my useless gp!
ellenjane, me too
bochead, fab idea there's some good stitch by stitch guides on youtube if you ever fancy getting the wool out again
Finished! So glad that's done... I've also survived a 4-year old's party this afternoon where there were a million children and one bouncy castle... DD coped really well until the last 10 minutes when she bounced head-first off the side of the bouncy castle onto a wooden floor, and also decided she couldn't cope with the number of children and the noise...
Bit miffed with DH though. Before we went to the party I told him he could take over with DD once we were home, so I got a chance to chill out. we got home at the time he expected us, and he was halfway through replacing the tap. So not only was I looking after her, I was also cooking her dinner... I don't think he understood why I was grumpy...
Absolutely knackered here, ds was up fo half the night, so I was up at about 3am this morning. I went back to bed for an hour this morning, but I think I am coming down with something, so feel rubbish.
Galena Now why should you be grumpy after all you were at a party, weren't you? . Dh does things like this 'oh ME look after them'.
Dh does usually do tea on Sat, nearly always pasta. This week he had bought a different kind. Ds: Why is this pasta a different colour? Dh: Because its a different kind. Ds: Why did you get a different kind? Dh: Just for a change. Ds: I don't do 'just for a change.'
