LB went to the farm yesterday for the first time in weeks. He’s timetabled to go every Monday and Friday but has consistently refused. Even though he always enjoys it when he’s there and works hard.
Apparently he’s been interested in the decorators, carpet fitters and electricians who’ve been working at the unit for the last few weeks. Yesterday it was turn of the gardeners.
“You hear that sound LB?”, asked his support worker.
“Yes,” said LB.
“What is it?”
“No, it’s the sound of men at work.”
And that was it. Bowl of porridge (or two) and off to work. Beautifully done.
