When we were in Wellington hospital and soon afterwards we were not monitoring Lily's money and were shocked to discover that in one weekend she had taken out $240 on Friday, Saturday and Monday and could only account for about $200 of the $720. She may have left money in the machine, given it to a beggar or her friends or dropped it but she just has no idea. Anyway since then we have been tightly monitoring her money so I was involved in getting a birthday present for her friend - a guy with DS turning 23. I asked her what she thought he'd like - when it became apparent that she had no idea of his favourite foods or music (even though she spends each Monday afternoon with him) In the end I asked her what she thought he liked doing as we could get him something related to that. After some thought she said we could maybe buy him a magazine of naked ladies as he keeps one in his bedroom and loves to look at it!
I did consider this but got a T-shirt instead!
