Shift Report:

Fela arrived looking happy, and soon after he began signing for the usual “egg, butter, cooking, lick the bowl”. I kept saying and signing to him that he would have it on Sunday. He did this repeatedly throughout the afternoon until he had a nap just before dinner.

I did the board with him in the lounge, and he was happy with the activities. To begin, he opened a late Christmas present from his Grandad Johnny – a new pair of brown and orange Sketcher’s trainers. He tried them on with the orthotics insoles inserted, and they seemed to fit.

He became aroused in the loo but settled after about 15 minutes. I asked him if he wanted a story and he said yes. I gave him a choice between ‘The Bear who wouldn’t share’ (this week’s recommendation) and Bible stories. He chose the former, and seemed to really enjoy it as I was reading with a lot of expression and drama and I knocked on the door at the right time and said “no” with emphasis. I said to Fela that it’s good to share, and that he could share his custard and cake with me later after dinner.

Fela requested a manicure as well as the pedicure which was already on the board. He was indulged with a manicure, pedicure and a facial trim which prompted him to request a nap on the red settee. He slept for about 35 minutes, and seemed a lot calmer once he woke.

Fela enjoyed his dinner, and afterwards he joined in the Mr. Motivator video reluctantly but I was able to prompt him to carry on until the end because I said he could watch T. D Jakes afterwards which is what he requested. He was not happy with the first choice of sermon so chose another one and continued watching it during his snack and until it was time to go back home to meet Emma.

We arrived just after 20:30 and left just before 21:00. Fela was quite tired. When we left, he had just entered the bath.

*Fela’s new trainers are to be left for Claire to give the green light before they are ready for Fela to use. She may need to make some adjustments first.
