We have programmes
When everything went digital, Smiley's telly went blank. She could still watch her favourite videos, but I wanted her to have a bit more variety than that, especially as I suspected that we would be spending a lot of the summer indoors, to keep my son happy. So I got another Freesat box and this week the two of us were happily sitting together and looking at the news like an old married couple!
My son is now tolerating Smiley sitting at the table with us, so we can have proper family meals again. I couldn't do it before because he's afraid of catching germs from her. He still is, but I think he is beginning to grow out of this fear.
Shopping and music
On Saturday my son's usual arrangement fell through, but he still agreed to go into town to keep Smiley happy! Plans had to be changed but some shopping was done - for him of course - but cake was also involved, so my special girl was happy enough.
I made up for it on Sunday by bringing her into town for the Street Performance World Championships - a day late - and with all the music and excitement, she just loved it all.

Summer on the radio
We've been spending more time in the car going places and there's nothing like switching on the radio and hearing one of your favourite songs. Like this one. And Smiley's doing her little head dance in the back, and I'm doing mine in the front, and you turn the music up and the windows down and it's hot and it's cool at the same time, and it feels like summer :)
Young people DO get jobs
I just heard the stunning news this morning that my nephew has landed his dream job as an officer in the Royal Navy :)
And finally a huge thank you to all my friends who rallied round this week when I needed help. You know who you are xx
