Family festivities and a day in Cambridge

To start with getting a small item out of the way: I now have an official James and Sons email address: thomas.sutcliffe@jamesandsonsnorfolk.com. This is my work email, and only queries relating specifically to Jamers and Sons should be sent there – non work-related emails should still go to my regular email address.

Over the weekend we had various relations around – my Australian aunt was still in the country, and my other maternal aunt had a birthday on Sunday.

Yesterday I took part in some research relating to Autistic Spectrum Conditions in Cambridge, at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge. Most of this went exceedingly well, until it came to the last activity, which entailed being in an MRI scanner, and I could not cope with the level of confinement, so ducked out.

I have some splendid photos from Cambridge to share with you – all the plants are in the garden of the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit.

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
