I often use the analogy of a puzzle when trying to explain the purpose of Life Story work. Imagine a large jigsaw puzzle which once complete will form an image of yourself.
Note to self (as I send yet another belated birthday card)….. ‘be more organised next year as winging it and the lastminute.com approach doesn’t seem to be cutting it these days’.
As I stood wanting the playground to swallow me and my son up; she looked me square in the eye as if my child were a mass murderer and finally added ‘and I caught him jumping on snails!’.
This is what it must what it must be like for families in witness protection every day and as for covert police operations we'd make lousy undercover bobbies!
