😱Fear and stress😰

I admit that I say that lots of things are a problem when you have Aspergers but fear and stress are definitely some of the main problems.They sort of work together; fear creeps up on you,then you’re quite vulnerable to stress, and stress starts to engulf you.  

Stress and fear can be bad for people without Aspergers,but they are normally worse for people with Aspergers. I once ran away at school because stress had taken over me and it was too much for me. I hid in the cloakroom until the teachers found me.(not a good plan!)My mum said that I used to hold on to the fence of my preschool, because I was too scared to go in. Fear had got me.

Fear and stress is hard to Control most of the time, but try these ways and they might help.

* Counting to ten.Lots of people recommend this way.If you find that this way helps, but you’re still a bit stressed or scared, you could try to count to 100. 

* Think of happy things, people who you enjoy being around with, things you like, things you might want to do, anything that will distract you from what’s going on.

* Think of something really funny that has happened, or something that’s going to happen.

* Distract yourself by talking to friends, family or maybe even your pet. I talk to my guinea pig all the time! It may sound weird, but it does help. After all, people do say that a problem shared is a problem halved.

* Lastly,you could make up your own world.I have this sort of dream world, full of all the things I like, all the places I like,and somewhere where no fear or stress is allowed. It’s a paradise, and ideal for when you want to relax.

MOKURU!

Have you ever had a fidget-spinner? Even if you haven’t, you probably know what one is. Well, some people say that a MOKURU is even better than a fidget-spinner. 
To be honest, I can’t find any faults about the MOKURU apart from the fact that it won’t work on all surfaces, whereas with a fidget-spinner you don’t need a table, because you just spin it in your fingers. 
There are loads of tricks to do with a MOKURU, including some flips in the air and landing it on the table!

So, go and get a MOKURU, and see what tricks you come up with!!!

National fudge week!😀

A delicious week! I never knew there was one until now, but I’m glad that there is such thing now that I do. I love fudge, and this week is all about it.

The history of fudge..

This mouth-wateringly tasty treat has been around for a long time, but nobody knows exactly when it was first introduced. However, in 1886, it is known that fudge was sold in a grocery store in Baltimore for 40 cents per pound. 

Fudge is also thought to be an American invention and was actually some caramel that went wrong!
Flavours.

Too many to write! Fudge must be popular if there are all these flavours of it. Here are some popular flavours of fudge:

* Peppermint swirl,

* Butterscotch and peanut,

* Marshmallow,

* Pecan toffee,

* Cranberry,

* Mango,(my favourite!)

* Peanut butter,

* Nutella,

* White chocolate,

* Cookies n’ cream,

* Orange,

And many, many, many, (and a lot more many’s,) more.

FACT: Chocolate flavoured fudge is probably the most popular flavour around.
So, keep calm and eat fudge!

Autistic Pride day.

About Autistic Pride day.
This day was first celebrated in 2005, by Aspies for freedom, and now on the 18th of June each year, people celebrate Autistic pride day all over the world.
Autism.

Around 700,000 people in the UK are somewhere on the autistic spectrum (1 in 100). You are born with it, (although sometimes you can’t tell until much later) and it can’t go away. Autism affects how people communicate and it’s often hard to make friends, or deal with things like change. 
I am proud to be autistic.

🦁Chester zoo🐻

Chester Zoo…where to start?! One of the biggest zoos in the country too!Such a brilliant place to spend the day!!!
The Animals.

Chester zoo provides large enclosures for the animals, as close to their natural habitats as possible. Some of these animals are quite rare, and lots are from Africa and other different countries and places, so here in England, we’ve never really seen them up close in real life, just on TV or pictures and drawings, and that isn’t at all the same thing.

 

Play zone.

The play zone is brilliant, something for everyone; rope climbing and a reasonably long, good slide for older children, story time, a sandpit, musical instruments, large snap cards and a wooden kitchen area for younger children, as well as a little water area with dams and objects to make water squirt out of them. I enjoyed it very much, and by the smile my little brother had on his face, I reckon he did too. He even burst into tears when we moved on from the musical instruments!!!
Cafes, restaurants and snack bars.

There were several of these food places dotted around the zoo, and I suppose it’s a good thing too, as it’s such a big place, you can always stop to sit down and have a drink and a bite to eat. There’s even a BBQ, located near the Madagascar cafe and opposite the play zone. In the Madagascar cafe there’s dairy and soya free cakes, which is very good, as my mum and brother are dairy and soya free, and they barely ever get to have any dessert when they’re out, as nowhere sells dairy and soya free food, they don’t seem to care,but there they do. 
Chester zoo is a good place to go I would definitely recommend it. The staff are always happy to help, there’s a good sized gift shop and well organised parking with different animal zones.Decent toilets and clean baby changing and signposts and maps all around.
Over all, it’s a brilliant day out for all of the family!!!

J.K Rowling.

Full name: Joanne Rowling.
Date of birth: 31st July, 1965.

Career: Author.

Parents:Peter Rowling & Anne Volant Rowling.

Children:Jessica Arantes, Mackenzie Murray & David Murray.
As a small child, Joanne read and wrote books and novels. She wanted to be an author from a very young age; at the age of six, she had written a story of a rabbit called Rabbit. At eleven, she wrote her first novel about seven cursed diamonds and their owners. 
Jo went to school at Wyedean comprehensive, where her mother worked as a science technician in the chemistry department. At eighteen, she left home to go to Exeter University, where she spent a year in Paris, and shared a apartment with a Russian, Italian and a Spaniard.
Jo came up with the idea of the Harry Potter series in 1990, whilst sitting on a delayed train from Manchester to London kings cross. During the next five years, she started to map out the seven books.
She then moved to northern Portugal and taught English at a Portuguese school. She married Jorge Arantes in October 1992, and they had a daughter, Jessica, in 1993. The marriage ended later that year, and Jo returned to the UK bringing with her not only Jessica, but also a suitcase containing the first three chapters of Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone.
Jo trained as a teacher in Edinburgh, and taught in the city schools, but continued to write novels every time she could. Once she had finished the whole book, Jo sent the first three chapters to several literary agents, one of which wrote back saying that they would be interested to read the whole novel. Jo described it as ‘the best letter I have ever received in my life’
The book was published in June 1997, under the name of J.K Rowling. The K stands for Kathleen, her grandmothers name, as Jo herself doesn’t have a middle name.
In 2001, Warner bros released a film of the first of J.K Rowling’s books, followed by another seven adapted films of all the books, the last film coming out in 2011. 
In aid of comic relief, J.K Rowling also wrote two smaller books, Fantastic Beasts  and Where  to Find Them, and Quidditch Through  the Ages were published in 2001. 
In 2012, pottermore was created, and she published her first novel for adults, Casual Vacancies.
J.K Rowling is now married to Dr Neil Murray, and has had two more children, David and Mackenzie.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. 

This is an amazing book,better than the first,with more mysteries to solve. Something dark and mysterious is happening at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry, and Dobby the house elf tries to prevent Harry Potter from going to Hogwarts. Harry, however,is determined to return to his school.
What Harry wasn’t expecting, is the fact that his second year in Hogwarts was not going to be perfectly safe. Though losing all his bones in his arm sounds odd, compared to other things,it sounds quite normal!
Fun facts.

1. Whilst filming, Dobby the house elf was just an orange ball on a stick, so they had to create him digitally later.

2. A trench had to be dug around the Quidditch pitch for the scene where Harry is chased by Dobby’s bludger.

3. When Ron threw up slugs, they were actually chocolate, peppermint,orange and lemon flavour.

4. The sword of Gryffindor was purchased in an auction.

5. Lots of the stone steps in Hogwarts were actually made of wood.
Fun filled, gripping and exiting as well as mysterious,this book is brilliant, as well as the film.
