How well do you cope with a change in routine? I’ve got into the routine of going supermarket shopping on a Sunday morning. However next Friday my stepdaughter and granddaughters are going on a week’s holiday.
That means I either have to do an online shop, or my stepdaughter will take me shopping on Thursday.
This is throwing me a little as I am so used to shopping based on Sunday to Sunday. I’m wary of doing an online shop as I don’t know whether they know how to get to the flat, and I struggle to give directions.
Im the opposite - i cant possibly create routines. Every time i do something i have to think it through anew. It never gets into my system. Im way too flexible in such things. It is one of those things that is the complete opposite to autistic behaviour in me and makes me doubt the earlier autism diagnosis and wonder wth it is then that makes the world so intense and information processing so hard (ADD?
