I thought I’d share with you the lovely Thank you card from Ella’s and Lucia’s Mum after receiving her bunting. It’s always such a nice surprise these days to get thank you cards, but more so lovely to see how much my bunting efforts were received!
Although, it’s hardly the middle of the month, it does seem to have gone really slow for me… its still cold and gloomy but the promise of spring still teases me with the odd peek-a- boo display from my tulips.
But come the end of the day, it’s a wonderful sight to watch the skies burn out into night..
This is the site I see in the evenings before I draw the blinds.. gorgeous eh!
And this will equally take your breath away too. Alex and I tried to brave the elements in attempting to picnic yesterday… but our poor little bottoms could not tolerate sitting on metal benches and we soon found ourselves back indoors with our bottoms against the heater in hope of a fast recovery! It was nice to get out though and eat a cheese sarnie amongst the fungus riddled trees!
Also I thought I’d reveal how Richard and I are campaigning to get some help from the local authorities with the aim of getting Alex into a day time occupational centre. Its been a long struggle to get Alex to settle into a routine where he’s less likely to display challenging behaviour. It appears that the older he gets the more stimulus he needs with defined areas in his day..
Alas I don’t feel that this can be achieved without more help from the professionals. The National Autistic Society have been fantastic but funding from the local council in the aim to help Alex has not been so forthcoming, consequently Richard and I have been attending several appointments with local councillors, MP’s and AM’s to see what we can get to find a better way to help Alex feel more comfortable within his home surroundings… so now you know why I have been a little quiet on the blogging front …
It’s almost a full-time time job handling all the calls and correspondence, not to mention how emotionally draining it can all become.
However, the psychedelic colours from my GroovyGhann continue to thrive and challenge me on a different level. I’ve taught myself so many new things on this little project and I love it. All my pieces are now sewn together and all that needs to be added is the border… so go get your sun glasses and have a look at these fab photos of what has to be called “ summer sun shroud”
I shall not mention how long the ends took to weave in but I did need an extra-large night-cap last night!
And this one 🙂
Here’s wishing you a happy and sun filled beautiful weekend…. helen xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
