What's In A Week?


We seem to be getting into a routine with Bebe & have seen quite a transformation over the last week...


Amazing what a hair cut & some new clothes can do!

She is settling well & although there are periods when reassurance is needed, she has been able to move away from focusing on things which cause her distress. We have spent many hours talking & helping her to understand why she thinks the way she does. Some of the more mundane topics, Sime has now written about in a laminated letter - which we hand to Bebe when she starts to repeat herself & gradually the answers to these questions are seeping through! 

She is loving her time at daycare, which is a great bonus & she is amazingly sleeping well - if we can persuade her to keep off the coffee at night!


Bebe's had a go on her old typewriter, though found it a struggle to concentrate... 
We'll get it out again at the weekend & keep encouraging her. We've also tried playing Scrabble, but she was unable to unscramble the letters to form any words - we shall persevere!

Listening to her favourite music definitely makes a huge difference to Bebe's mood, she is at her happiest when singing, dancing or with both of us chatting. 


This is what happened after a bowl of soup today...

We're also managing to get her out walking & after not venturing out of her home for 3 years - she is doing fantastically!!!


A breezy Mevagissey Harbour this morning...


As Bebe says several times a day... 
"D'you know something? I think this move is going to work out."

We think so too!

Kay & Sime
