The arrival – wave good bye to the chcolates!
An early Christmas present
Looking at Mr Men T shirts
Mr Men pants!
then Goldhay arts at ten
to teach some Deafblind manual
The McDonald’s for lunch
and in the afternoon…
a quick burst of jimmy drumming but sadly the sound didn’t work!
And Belly Dancing!
we wake up to this!
Hopefully going to have a head shave this week!
we was in the regional pool by 8:15 for 40 lengths!
(thats Jimmy – not me!)
and then coffee with mugly – we got asked to leave starbucks as they dont allow dogs – even hairless ones
so we went elsewhere
in the evening we had a takeaway
(something jimmy dosent have)
and jimmy asked for curry chicken and fried egg rice!
In the evening we decided to take Jimmy out for a meal – something different
that he would not normally do, original it was going to be an Indian but sadly our favorite has been closed down!
so we had a discussion and we opted for Italian – this was jimmy’s first experience of a proper Italian restaurant
he made us laugh when he ate most of the olives and then when we said to him “do you like them” he said not sure!
Jimmy dipping his focaccia in oil like crusty bread in a cup-a-soup!
yes – he picked up his calzone!
after all it is a pizza
in the evening jimmy wanted to try and write with his bottom!
Looking at the Nerf Guns in sainsburys – see what you have started Wayne?
It always bothers me how much there is on offer and how much jimmy actually knows about – so today in sainsburys we had an empty isle so we went from one end to the other and he felt everything, and what he didnt know he asked!
it took around 50 minutes – and yes he sniffed everything
he then went back and found the item that he wanted to buy and try without any problems
I have been trying to get Jimmy to the museum as it has recently re-opened and there is a lot more for him to feel now – as before there was nothing!
He really loved it – and he enjoys Learning so much – it really is a pleasure taking him to places like this
Indian Elephant skull
Map of Peterborough with wooden 3 dimensional models
This was fun! you had to put all of the cogs together in the right size order to make it work
he gave up in the end – it drove him a bit crackers
Another puzzle – this time he was not going to be defeated!
it took about 20 minutes but he did it!
Smelling different herd used in roman cooking
Mystery feeley box’s – a bit of a bus-mans holiday if im honest lol
it was a walk in the park for jimmy
After the museum we went to Jimmy’s world grill
This is great as jimmy can try various food from around the world and all in the same restaraunt for a fixed price
he loves to try new things
so this was ideal
Spicy chicken meatballs (never had before) and honey fried chicken
Lamb rogun josh and poppadoms!
(never had before)
Stir fry noodles and beef
(never had before)
This was amusing as you choose the raw ingredients and they cook it for you on the spot
jimmy was quite concerned that his meal was raw – and laughed his head off when i handed it to him cooked
i suppose it would be a odd concept if you have not experienced it before
the fact that it was cooked right in front of him
(never had before)
and 2 deserts consisting of fresh fruit and ice cream
At last Claire was off so we decided on a grand day out
Jimmy loves trains and has never been on the Nene Valley Railway
We had a fantastic day – everything echoed memories
the old train , the smell, the feeling of the decor
And we even got to ride on Thomas
he remembers Thomas from his childhood and was very happy to hear about all of the children that was there and how happy and excited they was to see Thomas
We went to BBQ in the afternoon – in the rain
Jimmy met a lady named Sally who had recently had a baby
she let Jimmy feel the baby’s hand – and how tiny it was
Jimmy loved this
another beautiful moment
And then into a taxi and onto Jonathans 21st
Jimmy loves to learn about Jonathan
and Jonathan loves to learn about Jimmy
quite a remarkable pair
Jimmy meets Linda
quite a remarkable pair lol
Spending time with Molly cat
Having a deep and meaningful conversation with claire….
That went on a bit!
And then dinner and home made cheese cake – WOO HOO
We had a great week with Jimmy and to be honest we didnt want him to go home
normally we reach a stage when we have had enough – but not this week
he was brilliant and we are planning another week at ours during half term
