miss_s_b: (Mood: Bravo George)
This morning, despite it being prior to 9am, she did an ibble, in this case sensible.

(her school bus hadn't turned up at 8.30am and rather than panicking or running back home she texted me to let me know and so I could phone the school. As it happened the bus turned up while I was dialling, but I'm really proud that she had the executive function to let me know at 8.30, when there would still be time to arrange alternative transport. This might seem like a small thing to those of you not on the spectrum, but trust me, it's not a small thing. Well done Hol ♡♡ )

I think after the last few days there are a few of us who need hugs, but also a few of us who are feeling like we've had our space invaded once too often, so I thought I'd draw up terms of reference for the AO I jokingly coined on twitter this evening:

1, lib dem friends of cuddles exists to further the idea of comforting contact between sentient beings. Cuddles, hugs and cwtching are all within our remit.
2, a cuddle without consent is not a cuddle, it is assault. Asking for consent does not need to be verbal but it needs to happen. Opening your arms and inclining your head so the other person can lap into your arms is fine. Grabbing them is not*.
3, lib dem friends of cuddles are absolutely encouraged to proselytise the cause of cuddles within and without the party, but must never pressure or guilt trip anyone for not wanting cuddles.
4, We are happy to work with sister AOs in the cause of furthering happiness within the party, especially Lib Dem Friends of Gin, and also LDFO Cake, pie, biscuits & tarts.



*actually one of my favourite moments of lib dem conference was when I was having a weepy moment and someone said "is it OK if I pat your knee". This does not "ruin the moment" or take away spontenaity, you guys. It was really sweet and thoughtful and nice.
