This week our word of the week is adventures. It has been a busy week this week but it has been filled with some fun adventures.
On Wednesday it was my birthday and we celebrated with a child-free day to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour to visit The Making of Harry Potter. We had debated if it could be something that Ethan would be able to visit but now that we experienced it we know we made the right decision to make it an adult-only visit. If Ethan starts to watch the Harry Potter series when he gets older we would perhaps think about taking him but we would have to see if they could make the entrance a bit more autism-friendly.
We did have a very good day but we were shocked at how busy it was. There were so many schools visiting. This, therefore, meant that we decided not to ride the broomsticks as the queue was huge.
Yesterday we were very brave and decided to make the most of Ethan’s last day of term time and take him into London. I haven’t been in London for well over a year now and it has been something that has been causing me anxiety issues. The thought of taking Ethan on a train, with all those people, I thought was going to be a nightmare. Also, Little E can make you well aware that she doesn’t like being in the buggy all day.
I’m pleased to say the day went very well. There were a few autism meltdowns, but we managed and I think Ethan really enjoyed the day. We showed him the dinosaurs in The Natural History Museum and spent most of the day in The Science Museum. We even visited Harrods to have dinner in The Disney Cafe, which Little E loved!
Ethan really enjoyed the train journey and even liked ‘reading’ his Evening Standard on the way home. It was a few long and busy days but we all enjoyed it.
