Smile – Weds 5th September 2018

By | September 5, 2018

It’s been a day of smiles today.

Smiles for D as she headed back to school into a class with her teachers from last year and knowing who her classmates will be  – which is so important when it comes to preparing her for the new school year.

Smiles as she and T headed back to the routine of school after a summer where it’s always so evident that they need and crave that routine.

Smiles also because today was the first time since April 2017 that I’ve done the school walk, due to those pesky foot operations, we picked blackberries for the bunnies on the way home (they didn’t like them!) and I’ve really missed that pointing-out-cats/plants/birds time that our walk brings and smiles that, for the first time in two years, we are not building up to operations and all the upheaval that brings.

Smiles from me too as I did the walk after dropping D off and the walk to collect her, with my earworms in, listening to my “walking tunes” playlist.  I really, really miss listening to music during the school holidays and my wellbeing always crashes, music is an immense relaxation tool for me.

And smiles that I’m blogging after a sporadic absence, hopefully more frequently now.

But if I stop and think about it, that smile fades as I realise with T coming up to 16 in a couple of months and with D 18 months behind, that the transition to adult social care will be looming and I don’t think it will be straightforward or without its angst.
