It’s impossible to have a nap in this place.

I had to go for a nap mid to late afternoon due to the fact that I was unable to sleep last night. I had a bath, put pjs on and went to bed for an hour or so. I felt like crap because my monthly decided it wanted to be awful today. I didn’t think it was a great idea to go for a walk. I was rudely awoken by the cats chasing each other into the window. I thought nothing of it until I got up to discover bird feathers across the kitchen floor. I don’t see any remains of a bird but that explains why they were fighting and running around after each other.

Mister

That is exactly the reason why they aren’t allowed in the room where the chicken eggs are being kept warm until they hatch. I don’t trust them not to start playing with the eggs or any chicks that may hatch from them. They have the nature to hunt anything that moves. The cats have no idea that it is wrong. They are just doing what is their natural instinct. Mister is playful with small things like mice but he doesn’t realise his own strength as he’s a rather large cat. Mimi will just kill anything she catches because she chases to hunt not play. She has no need to catch her own food because she is fed enough regardless what she makes out when following me around acting like she doesn’t get fed.

There was also a buzzing thing in the living room when I woke up. I’m not sure if that was down to the cats or the creature got in here by accidentally flying in. I must have a certain aura where all animals think that they can freely just drop in here. The animals know I’m totally safe otherwise they wouldn’t stroll into my space. Humans were wrong about me because they don’t understand me.

Mimi

Chicken mum to be.

I know I’m random but I have thought about trying this for a while. I have got 6 fertilised eggs from someone who has chickens and a rooster (both needed to make an egg viable). I don’t know if it will work. I’ve got them in my warmest room and later (they have to settle after being in the post for 12 hours) I’m going to put them in a box with padding around them. The cats won’t be allowed anywhere near them especially when they hatch. I will need to sell them to those with chickens who has a garden when they’re fully grown. I don’t think house chickens will go down well with my landlord. It’s okay when they’re babies but chickens can end up quite large depending on what breed they may be. There’s definitely more than one breed in the selection as there are two different egg types in the box.

Strangers making babies – Channel 4, 23rd March 2021 at 9.15pm.

I have read many negative comments regarding this new program that is scheduled to start on channel 4 tomorrow night at 9.15pm. I was reading the comments. There was one reoccurring comment which I would like to address because I see the view as rather old fashioned. Something along the lines of… think of the poor children created for a television program, growing up in an unstable situation because the parents were strangers. I am aware that many of the older generations grew up with a set view of how one must raise a family. I don’t want to upset those people that still believe in having children in a marriage unit. Then there are another set of commenters saying that this sort of program gives a negative image of single parents. I may be someone who thinks ‘outside of the box’ when it comes to what is seen as normal in life. I don’t believe that society should ‘stand still’ or settle for the ‘status quo’. The choices that I have made in my life have raised a few eyebrows. Conventional is just not who I am as an individual… life is for living in ways that you’re comfortable rather than putting on an act pretending to be something you’re not. Those that know me will already be aware that I had a child with an acquaintance that I got to know when I lived down south. He wasn’t keen on sticking around after he had done his part. He never actually wanted anything to do with my son. It didn’t work out for me due to losing him to adoption. I feel that it is fine for strangers to make babies together providing that they both have regular contact with the child while they’re growing up. I’m now in my thirties. If I do decide to have another child then I probably would chose to have one with a stranger because there are no strings attached. I don’t have the time to meet someone for the purposes of settling down, marriage, children etc. I know that many of you cannot see the attraction to the idea of this program.

‘Normal’ isn’t normal for everyone. Those of us that have a form of Autism find relationships hard to maintain. We still want to be able to have a life. The key to that is adjustments to make our disability less of a dis-advantage. We have a disability which affects our social capacity and the way that we interact with others. The ways around our weak areas may seem challenging but it’s not impossible. Life isn’t straight forward even for those that are neurotypical. Autism does complicate life but it’s not a negative life sentence if you stay chilled and roll with anything that happens. Fighting things just doesn’t ever work. I learned that when I was younger. Resistance attracts resistance etc.

I would recommend that those uncomfortable with the idea of this program to actually watch the first few episodes before making a definite judgment regarding the idea of ‘strangers making babies’.
