I think the last time anyone saw this type of weather it was Noah himself! Instead of getting the motivation to keep unpacking and getting my new home into order, I’ve been sitting indoors watching DVD’s with Alex huddled together on what was supposed to be our picnic blanket.. with the central heating on at times too. Ironic!!!
However, we did have a little adventure the other night. The storms must have effected the power lines and we had a couple of hours without power.. so imagine the scene of me running around like fool looking inside a thousand boxes packed ceiling high inside a dark garage looking for candles, torches and lighters.
Occasionally it’s not such a bad thing that Alex doesn’t speak as I’d fear as to what vulgarities would escape from his lips after hearing me during these type of incidents!
When I did finally did extract the torch from the bowels of the car boot I took Alex out to have some fun stroking the solar-powered fibre optic lights in the garden. Alex loves the feeling of them and I love the fact that my garden looks like an 80’s disco dance floor.
And the kitchen looked so romantic… the candles gave it a gold-plated effect.
And check out this spooky photo of a three-headed Alex just before he decided to blow out all the candles out in the lounge..
So although many of you have written to ask if I’m Ok regarding the floods here in Wales, the answer is yes. Where we live now quite high up in the north of the city…
Regardless of the power cuts, the rain and the cold, its been a lovely week with Alex. Apart from the odd upset, which I could perhaps blame insecurity and confusion for, he’s been a joy to have home again.
It’s a funny thing to say but he appears to have grown up during the time he was in treatment and we are now beginning to see the humorous quirky Alex we knew before his melt down.
Wishing you all a dry and happy sun filled week… much love … Helen xxxxxxxxxxx
