Many of you will know my son is autistic. He goes to a computer course on a Wednesday and is usually home by 3.30pm. I've just texted him to make sure he's ok.
Reply was "Yeah sorry, we're in the pub"
Such a simple thing but as he never gets out and has no friends, I'm so pleased for him.

nina So pleased for you! Am hoping for a similar outcome in the future for DGS1, a drink and a chat wih friends, such a simple thing, and yet not.🌞

And I am pleased as well let's hope it's the first of many visits with his friends. Good Times.

That is lovely news nina. These are the simple things that we all take for granted, but they're just so special for people like your son. smile

Brilliant news Nina, chuffed for you, and son of course! smile

That is so good. So wonderful that he is out there doing normal things. It might seem a small thing, but I can understand what this must mean to you. smile

A lovely warm feeling, so pleased for him sunshine (and you) smile

That's a huge step Nina smile

Bless his heart. I hope he has a super time. My DGD is only 9 and has all that to come yet.

How lovely for him to be doing such a completely normal thing, something most of us take for granted.

Hope it's just the first of many pub outings for him. smile

He must feel quite relaxed in their company...Fantastic news! smile

annsixty Wed 04-May-16 20:37:07

Yes we do take for granted what we expect. So happy for you both Nina baby steps but such an important one.

Regalo Wed 04-May-16 21:15:28

Brilliant..and also that he can recognise your slight anxiety by starting his text with 'sorry'. To my mind , a huge step.
