I was curious to see what was going on here after such a long time.
The app has changed significantly and curiously my site is picking up a half dozen views every day which is just bonkers.
Here in the UK we are winding down from the last few years of madness. It’s not over and it’s no consolation to know that it’s settled at a level a bit worse than flu.
The family are excelling as I look at retirement.
The eldest is affianced and (drumroll) is “expecting” in September. Fab news for them. L has really become part of the family and Ashley loves him.
Honourable no.2 has settled into her new job and is even being touted for manager positions. She’s still at home but is saving to leave as she approaches 21.
Ashley is now at Special College and is having a blast. His speech is clearer and his boundless love of life and loud laughter fill our days.
The baby C is now 14 and doing so well in school. She has a mob of friends and has actually taught me a lot about their transitions. Her intellect and acceptance of difference are inspiring.
I’m still working for a large chain supermarket and looking at retirement with eager eyes.
The biggest event in my life recently has been the death of my Mum last year. Alzheimer’s finally took her one Saturday morning in May as I sat holding her hand. It was apt as my brothers had done nothing in the last few years to support her. I got to arrange the funeral which was just as she would have liked it. I’ll write a separate piece later.
Again I’m sorry it’s been so long but I do intend to get going on this thing again. My typing hasn’t slowed me down which is a surprise (muscle memory?)
I’ll jump on your blogs and drop some comments soon.
