I have been living in my new home for nearly a year now and I have settled in well. Though at first I was a little shy, I have now fully come out of my shell and take part in a range of different activities.
I have recently made another significant achievement. Going on holiday to the seaside is quite a normal thing for most people, but for me it was a brilliant outcome.
In the past, because of some of my behaviours and needs I sometimes needed a great deal of extra support from ubu. This meant that I if I went on any trips at all, they were usually only very short – but not this time!
I went to Blackpool, visited the Sea-life centre and Madame Tussaud’s (although I wasn’t really sure if the people were real or not!). I walked on the prom and enjoyed the sea breeze along with all the other holiday makers.
The best part though; I got to stay in a hotel for the first time! An overnight stay at the seaside is something I have wanted for ages and I really enjoyed it. I felt like I’d had a proper break away, this made me very happy!
