    Wonderful. Have to say that Steven’s priorities make better reading and are much more fun 🙂

  3. Brilliant! I think Steven’s list and priorities are better and more important that yours lol.

    My husband just said his list would be ‘x box, telly, job done’ lol x

    I am about to move myself and my son’s only expectation is that he will pack everything in his room, leave the rest to me i.e. all the stuff on your list and was hopeful of getting paid to help with anything else on the day. I pointed out that no-one is paying me and I have to pay removal men too.

    Love the blog by the way.

    Kind regards,

  5. Just shows how much Steven needs you and how much you and your opinions etc. should be considered by authorities…..really great contrast – Steven sounds a lovely lad….

    Hi Mark – great lists! When my son moved he didn’t do a list – unusual in itself as he likes lists. He went about his daily routine with his support worker + us + the rest of his team moved all his stuff. He then checked we’d got everything important such as things similar to Steven’s list! Good luck with everything.
