When I wrote to Oldfield Park Junior School to thank them for naming a class after me, I never expected to see my three bullet points up on the class board alongside so many huskies. Each child had written what makes them unique. I received a large number of thank you letters and hand drawn husky pictures too. It was all rather exciting.
It was an incredible few weeks, as I also had a newspaper article on the topic, and recorded my first radio interview about my autism and having a class named after me. Since then, I’ve written back to the school, and I also look forward to hearing my interview when it is broadcast.
Bringing myself back to earth was hard, but book 3 beckons, and I must crack on… wish me luck!
