Cucumbers, Intervention and Swimming Lessons

Ah yes it is that time of the year when everything starts to return to normal. What I mean by normal "for us" is routine! Intervention for Leo is up and running again, this year we have a lovely lady called Lynne and she will visit every Monday at 9.30. Our first session was a little different Leo spent the first half hour covering his eyes so he could not see Lynne, he seems to do this when he is confronted by someone he does not know! After some coaxing he slowly came round to her! Then in the afternoon it was off to swimming lessons. I was very surprised at how well Leo went, he was able to follow most of the instructions and really enjoyed the water.

Today (Tuesday) we had the lovely Michelle for Speech therapy, we always have a great time with Michelle. So that is our week so far!
Oh and I have been making a christening cake! Wow I had forgotten how time consuming making cakes is as well as seeing to two boisterous boys and trying to fit in therapy time with Leo.......I feel physically and mentally exhausted!

Since Christmas I have lost my veggies to the bugs.......they have won the war and I wave my white flag in resignation, except for the beans and cucumbers! Wow who would have thought it was so easy to grow cucumbers, I have given many away as there is only so many you can eat! So if you come by my house you are sure to leave with at least four, five maybe even six cucumbers. Another idea is to pickle them, although I know everybody hates the pickles in their burgers at McDonald's, maybe I should just stick to giving them away.......

Happy New Year!

Happy 2010 to everyone!
A new Year and a new decade, if only I had a crystal ball to see what lies ahead for us. For Leo & Jack it will be a year of adventure, Jack will go to daycare and Leo a new kindergarten, fingers crossed they will embrace the change, especially Leo. For me, who knows what is in store, a little bit more time for myself maybe......

Mid 2009 we decided to buy a dog (not a puppy) and hence we have our beautiful Mariah. When we were going through the process of choosing a dog we met one of Mariah's cousins Mi Mi, she was also available, but Mariah was the one for us. This week my sister decided they would like a Labrador, but like us did not want a puppy so I mentioned where we got Mariah and as things would have it beautiful Mi Mi was still there, I couldn't believe it and now she has a new home with Charlotte, Thomas and baby Neve. I am so happy she has gone to a wonderful home where she will be loved. Ahhh happy endings and happy 2010 to everyone!
