Good AFTERNOON and Happy Melbourne Cup Day!
What a full on day already and its only 1.11pm (wow, angels got me today)!
James was out the door early to Sensory therapy.
Then Coles, Coffee and Kmart, for our Christmas art supplies. All James' therapists and teachers are getting a beautiful painting from James. We are going to start the process now, I like him to layer the painting so they take quite a few days to do.
We got home today to a front door FULL of parcels!!!
James had 2 parcels, his Therapy Store delivery for some sensory needs that I purchased and a special parcel addressed to 'Prince James' from a beautiful sponsor from PJ's for Fighters.
If you ever want to give back then please check out PJ's for Fighters its a brilliant way to put a smile on sick, disadvantaged and special needs children. We have sponsored two children and its so lovely seeing the smile on their faces with the special gift you pick out for them. James got a huge parcel today full of all the things he loves. So thankful!!!!
I also got a parcel today!!! A very special gift just for ME!
Thank you to Monthly Message Candles.... I was having a hard day the other day and this beautiful woman sent me a special message candle. You should check them out, it smells devine and looks so beautiful. It also comes with a special message.... I feel super loved today!!!
James has been very lucky today.... today he also got headphones for therapeutic listening. His OT has been playing it the last few weeks, so know we will put it into his daily routine.
Man, the things we do for these children. Buy this, buy that..... it's insane. But wouldn't have it any other way!
So today is Melbourne Cup day. There was a time (feels like forever ago) that I used to pick my dress out months in advance, make a facinator, start drinking champagne from 10am and not be able to walk by the actual race.
Oh my how things have changed! PS I was never that bad... but Melbourne Cup was always a big day of drinking, betting and laughter!
The closest I get to the races is watching it on the TV, dodging the heads of two little people while I fight to keep the race on the TV and not Peppa Pig!
Daddio asked me what horses I wanted to bet on this morning and I picked 1 and 7. I know nothing about the horses and I probably picked bad choices BUT hey no one really ever knows who is going to win the race that stops a NATION.
Horse number 1: Big Orange -I just like the name
Horse number 7; Who shot Thebarman- because I ain't drinking champagne today
Daddio picked number 13 and 18 because they are the kiddies birth dates.
So we just need 1,7,13 or 18 to come in..... BAHAHA GOODLUCK
Happy Tuesday EVERYONE,
