Home Sweet Home

I’m home but the difficult bit starts know, adjusting from being in hospital to everyday life. At the minute I need to focus on my projects, one is running, the other is writing a book, yes I’m in the middle of writing a book called LIFE – Living With Aspergers: Daniel Jones Story.
