Aloof and lacking empathy?
The picture shows me wearing a happy expression, as well as a few hearts, a flower (I think it's a lilly like those in a vase on our table) and most endearingly of all, a flag from a railway signal box.
Duncan made it and handed it to me last night, entirely unprompted, after I'd been giving out to someone for something. I was at the time, being a bit of a grumpy mum. He told me he'd made a card.
You know those autistic children and their legendary "aloofness" and "lack of empathy". You know how often they're described as being "locked in their own little world".
Look at that picture and see the evidence, that those theories, are utter bollocks.
