I missed last nights but they came up the road to me last yr and did the big build, whole house, for a local fella and his 4 kids. My girls went and got Billy to ring me up haha cos He's my fave! We had a very nice chat about his grand daughter and mine... Daughters ex and some local lads we know worked on the house with them and the guys are all really lovely and treated the helpers to slap up meals everyday and then took them all out on the raz on the last night too.
I loved Thomas! I have a tear in my eye. I work 1 minute away from that and my team volunteer at the local ASD respite centre doing work in their garden and playground area. I have a sneaking suspicion that I have met Thomas
It was so lovely. Its unusual to see a little piece of life on tv from someone who has a child with Autism. I thought Nick Knowles was excellent, he was saying the right sort of things. I can see why her home ended up like that, mine is being trashed. I dont know how anyone keeps their house nice living with ASD DC.
Loved the boys reaction at the end, made me cry too.
This is one of the reasons I love DIY SOS, Not only do they do a 'proper' job and not some copydex and staples crap but they tend to do houses for those who really deserve some help. They do loads for disabled kids and it's always a delight to see their little faces light up and the faces of their parent/carers, some of the burden and strain eased. And they're such a great bunch of blokes (and women!)
