O is for Open over at the ABC challenge blog
I cannot believe that it is June 1st already, where has the time gone?? This time last year our lives changed forever with the loss of my Dad who left us far too early at the age of only 62. We still miss him, obviously, but if there is one thing I learned it is that life is too short and you only get one chance at it! With that in mind I was determined to try my hardest to get onto one or more design teams. Here I am now, a year later, on 2 challenge blog design teams and on the DT for a super company called Splodge Away that makes some wonderful products that are great fun to work with.
Around the same time, we started on the long road of trying to get a diagnosis for our son who we think has Asbergers (still on that long road but getting closer to an answer there). Whilst we don’t have a diagnosis as yet, or even bothered what the “label” is, we are finding it a lot easier to deal with his “quirks” and his special way of doing things. The same son has taken up playing the tin whistle and is loving it. Our younger Son has started with a local theater group and has just performed his first play, outside of school, in which he was a natural.
All in all I think we have had a year that Dad and Grandad would have been pleased with, I do believe he has been watching and is very proud of what we have all achieved.
I used one of my Gelli plate printed Backgrounds and an image from the Paper shelter called Spring Swing II
