Our Day Out

Well Elin has had a fab day out today with her little buddy Megan! We have been to Park Hall Farm before but today was particularly noteworthy due to the length of time we spent there without Elin getting too upset or stressed with the buggy situation. We have been creating 'buggy situations' daily, even if we don't need to go anywhere and some of these have been successful outings, others have not (frustrating as ever). Now don't get me wrong, she didn't love the buggy today, but with various distractions she wasn't in and out anywhere near as much as she could have been. I love Park Hall because everything is close together and there are plenty of places to sit (pitt-stops where I can get Elin out of her chair if needs be) so we don't need to stress her out too much. Today, despite the warm weather, she excelled herself. In fact we were there from 10:30 until 4:30- unheard of! So proud of her! How wonderful to be able to be 'out' and enjoying ordinary school holiday family activities without Elin becoming too overwrought. Determined to continue daily 'buggy activities' so as not to undo all the hard work Elin, her teachers at school and her physio's have built up during term time. So far, so...not bad :-) :-)
