I also enjoy spending time in my sensory garden, on my trampoline and some of my other interests include listen to my favourite music, watching films on television and listening to interesting stories about fishing and animals. My appearance is especially important to me and so is my puppy Luna who is also part of my care team, she is a lot of energy and is full of fun.
