Hello Hello! Today was a beautiful fresh Autumn morning here... The older two Miss G and Master S are at school and Master J and I collected pine-cones in the local 'forest' to put in our garden beds.
The apple crates lining my front strip of what was once lawn are awaiting to be filled with compost and manure and straw. We have one planted out with spinach and capsicum... Master J is eagerly awaiting harvest time.
My stock pile of beautiful children's attire made from gorgeous vintage fabrics is slowly growing. I wonder how we fit in working amongst being a mother, wife, gardener, personal carer etc. I would love some of your hints to this epic question!
My dreams last night were quite disturbing. I do hope and pray our local community of parents with children on the Autism Spectrum have had blessed day at home with their babes. How can we raise awareness of our Universities and Schools to acknowledge the importance in training our teachers to be knowledgeable and aware of children with disabilities and the diverse needs they have? Surely burying their head in the staff-room is not the answer?
Well we are off to Speech now for Master S and then the afternoon whirlwind of swimming lessons and an after-school play with Miss G's new knitting friend.
