The Best of Intentions

Ah, life it can get so complicated sometimes can't it. 

Especially if you have a child with special needs.  We decided to intensify our little man's therapies both at sessions and at home, and exhausting as it has been for me with his "homework" and taking him to and from his therapists, the fatigue has been worth it as we have seen a remarkable leap in his development.  He is a real little star and we love him to bits.

We are about to start phase two by bringing a therapist into our home for 10 hours every week.  The idea is that by the time he starts school in 18 months that he will no longer need the "shadow" he currently has at preschool and that he will have caught up with his peers.

As it turned out despite all the best intentions of keeping up my daily posts, if only to provide a bit of "me" time with pretty pictures, it became impossible to keep abreast of other blogs let alone keep mine up to date.

But I do miss you all both my readers and also the blogs I like to read and I am determined to  return to the blogosphere. So, I'm back but it won't be daily and it may not even be weekly or monthly but rather intermittently, I hope you don't mind.

In the meantime, here are few pretty things that I'm loving a lot:

To carry my bits and bobs

By day

And by night

It was really wet a few weeks ago

Wishing it was summer

We're off to Fiji in a fortnight, this would be lovely for evenings

Sexy Scandi style

The most stylish height chart ever

And just to end the post with some family stuff:

The boys on their first day of school earlier this year

Comparing their Easter egg finds

On a day trip to the Zig-Zag Railway in the Blue Mountains

Have a happy day and see you soon.


  1. So nice to see your post Engracia. I was thinking about you the other day as I sent off your Townmouse order. Have a lovely time in Fiji.

  2. Nice to see you back here Engracia. Sounds like you're making lots of progress with your son and are very dedicated to providing the best you can for him which is all that any parent can do. Take care x

  3. Lovely to see you back. I had wondered where you'd been! Good luck with your son's therapies, I admire your love and dedication. I'll look forward to your intermittent posts!!!!

  4. Welcome back Engracia! Your little man sounds like he's doing great :-) Looking forward to catching up when things calm down a bit for both of us :-)

  5. How wonderful to see you back! I think of you often and wonder how you're getting along. Yes life does get busy and disruptive at times. How is your little man's therapy coming along? Life with kids is challenging, and more so when they need extra help. I hope life is treating you well, and that winter in your neck of the woods hasn't been too cold. Best, Annie x
