Life has changed!
In my youth; many, many years ago, a day took sooooo looooong!
A week took sooooooo looooong!
The months were sooooooo looooong!
The years were slowly sooooo looooong!
Your life was sooooooo faaaaaaaaar away in the distance!
Does life change when you become 50yrs old?
Does your inners go backwards!
Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock, the mouse knocks on the door, Tock, Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock, Tick.
For me there's ways of knowing and one is the way you talk about your youth and what you had done.
Is my inners going backwards!
Or does the brain relive all of it's life all over again in pristine details after a brain trauma!
I'm living my life all over again; 2 for 1 memories......... A Bargain! Thank god I'm Scottish; I love a bargain!
I went to my Qigong & Thai Chi, very therapeutic for me.
One of the Art Classes was finishing for The Christmas and we all had a party. Everyone took in a little something for their party.
We Ooohed and Aaahed and said Colourful as we had cake in our mouths; or was that just ME <---
It was cakes galore that night in Art.
|Later I put 2 canvas's on FB for words from Julie H. Winter the painter. Much appreciated.|
|Santa & The Snowman were getting me happy.|
I delivered some cards at the Surgery and stopped for a coffee in the surgery at CommuniKate.
This tree was the center design for each table; it gives you in that Christmassy feelings.
I had lunch with Chris and met up with James and Matt.
Chris left to go back to Class and I carried on chatting and talking about homes and disabilities. Basically, I spoke about ME<---
James and Matt Norton work for ASPIRE care group.
Matt is the Creative Director at St Josephs Care, they are Specialist care for people with learning disabilities.
I was taken into their new premises; it was fabulous to see, smell and feel all that was hanging up on the walls, see the soft room, look at their sensory garden. One of the large walls in the garden may be painted.
It was lovely to see it all coming together.

An extra wee prayer won't hurt.
Happy New Year for 2014 Claudia, you are a great inspiration.
All My Love XXX
We counted last night, well this morning really, Claudia stayed awake ALL night and so she counted, very clearly to ten and then continued even higher. Her speech, it is such a slow process but oh so very rewarding. If we have to do this for the rest of our lives, then I count us as being extremely lucky. To nurture, love and protect a child as special as Claudia (as all of them) is an absolute honour. I love you all, my precious babies and thank you for everything you do, everything you are, to make my life complete
