Wow was yesterday exhausting and it has not been helped by Beauty deciding that whether or not it is a Saturday, she is still going to get up early and she is going to play with Dora The Explorer.
Hola Dora! Beauty is now learning to count in Spanish, she can already count in English and Welsh.
Beauty's conversational skills maybe limited but she seems to be picking up words rapidly, words which she can use with understanding.
The other night we were watching Katie and Peter on their reality TV show, I love that show.Those two are so well suited and they are so good with their son Harvey, Peter is such a good Dad to Harvey. Harvey reminds me in so many ways of Beauty as far as behaviour is concerned , obviously Harvey has his sight and growth problems as well but they do such a great job with their son. Peter took Harvey and Junior out for a walk to a Farm Shop and Harvey got upset for apparently no reason the way Beauty used to (thankfully Beauty hasn't had an episode in at least a year) and Peter took Harvey home and nothing seemed to pacify Harvey........except for a nappy change! With Beauty it was a sleep. When Beauty was really small she was assessed at home by a psychologist and when the psychologist left Beauty cried constantly for over 2 hours and nothing would pacify her.It is so sad to see Beauty like that as you just feel so helpless when she just will not stop crying. The night terrors are similar but in the night terrors Beauty is very afraid of something but in the crying episodes she is just very, very sad.
I will be back later with pictures of the back garden.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
