Days fly by

On Sunday Ian and I went to church in the morning and came home afterwards. We had a salmon for lunch and during the afternoon Chris tidied his bedroom. We were all back at church in the evening and Chris was expecting to go to tea and toast at Stoff's but it was cancelled so he came home and ate toast here instead, four pieces of lovely warm butterytoast. Chris then played on the Wii for ages, Ian and I played too but our performances were not so impressive!

On Monday I had a lovely lunch with my friend Ann at Zugers, followed by coffee plus at Alison's. in the evening I was at Open Door. Meanwhile Chris had school as usual. In the morning he had his GCSE Chemistry module, he seems to think it all went well. In the evening he went to cell where they had a social to say farewell to one of the older girls who is going off to Uganda for a few months.

On Tuesday I went to bag-a-bargain in the morning and went over to West Kirby and walked along the coast to Hoylake. Chris had a pretty uneventful day at school though he pleased his PE teacher by telling him that he is going to start attending PE lessons again!

Wednesday was a busy day for me with the day spent at Little Fishes and then a visit to catch up with my friend Kathryn afterwards. The highlight of my day was watching one little boy at fishes, He and his twin brother were born very prematurely, and initailly were not expected to live. Doctors told his mother that he would never walk. Today nearly three years later he has just learnt to walk independently and was standing there joining in with all the actions of a song! both amazing and wonderful to see! Chris had his physics GCSE module today, he says this one was harder than the other two but feels he has done alright. We had steak for tea and then we were both out in the evening at two separate events, both of which were taking plaCe at the Church Hall!

Lovely pics of your coastal walk! And an inspiring story about the little boy.

Sounds as if all is well in your world at the moment. Now that the snow has gone I am emerging from what has felt like hibernation but might be off to Portugal again soon. Looks as if meeting up might have to wait a while.

I love stories where we defy the doctors' predictions. It shows we can still not fully understand the power of the human spirit and its ability to overcome hurdles of seemingly massive proportions. Thanks for sharing this one.

The photos are beautiful. Makes me want to get out a sketchbook!! I love the muted colours and the isolation.
