We’re changing some things with my support and living setup. Here is an outline of what we’re changing and why.
One of the things i find most challenging is long periods home alone. The pressure too keep safe isn’t high, but it is constant and consumes lots of energy.
To try and make my home a little less complex, we have been trying three different experiments. We have been simplfying my home, compartmentalising risks, and adding passive support.
Exploring weight management using routine friendly methods.
How I have changed the way I think about my energy in order to improve my life.
In late November we went to Centre Parcs for a small holiday. It was really fun. As normal the bit i enjoyed most was the cycling. I always get a Trike and take great pleasure in playing postman!
When i got home i was thinking about cycling a lot. I enjoy cycling and own two bikes, but it has been rare for me to ride. I cover at most a few hundred miles per year. Its more than nothing, but not anywhere near enough to make any impact on my health.

2018 was a really big year for me. For the last few years I have been recovering from a burnout and operation in 2015. However its a really been the last year where things have started to really come together.
With that in mind, here are some highlights from the last year. Things which have changed or happened which I am grateful for.

I’ve been making a podcast. Here’s a post all about what we made and why we made it.,
Since moving to my new flat about 3 month ago i have been experimenting with how i use my living space.
Most days i spend 20-22 hours in my flat. It’s where i do most of my work and day to day living. This places huge demands on the space to be comfortable, safe and sustainabe
My take on the NAS event I’ll be speaking at in a few months time.
A little exploring of when I charge for presentations and what I charge.
It feels kind of amazing, but its already been about 6 weeks since i moved into my new home. It’s been a pretty long, but positive transition. In this post i’m going to reflect on what is working well and what will need some future tweaking.
I’ve not written much in 2018. I have been super busy with other autism projects… but more on that in the near future.
Today, i’d like to share some wonderful new. This afternoon i exchanged contracts on a new flat. I should get the keys sometime tomorrow.
I have a new home!
