Posted Nov 19, 2014
Which sounds and sights from nature do you find most relaxing. I love listening to the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore and the most relaxing sight is walking through ancient woodland especially after it has snowed.

Aspergers in Females
Posted Nov 9, 2014
I am on the process of being assessed for Aspergers. I have been thinking about it for a while and only approached my GP this March for a diagnosis. If I did not have anyone with me, I would not have approached my GP. My GP is Spanish and he comes from a country where they have an excellent Autism/Aspergers diagnosis and support service.
Here are the list of some of the Aspergers traits in females:
Has a very rich and elaborate fantasy world
Do not understand the concept of small talk
Appears to be have good social skills but this is learned behaviour
by copying others
Poor social interaction and communication skills
Finds it very hard to make long term friendships
Is youthful for her age, in looks, dress, behaviour and tastes
Enjoys reading and films as a retreat, often sci-fi, fantasy
OCD and social anxiety
Winter weather predictions
Posted Nov 8, 2014
I am hoping for a better winter than last year which was literally a wash out. I have been looking at various reports from across Europe, especially the first snows of Siberia and the Scandinavian countries to see if and when we are likely to get snow. I think that the temperatures are not go down until late November/early December with the first taste of winter weather
