30Aug07

Our holiday is coming to an end. 1 week is never enough to completely relax and unwind. I didn't post yesterday because we had a great night last night. We all let our hair down and had a late night taliking by the pool. We went to the beach inthe afternoon and I took Josh snorkelling for over an hour. We saw loads of different fish and even saw a Cormorant diving to catch a fish right in front of us. It was the best afternoon of the holiday. I took Lucy in the sea afterwards and she loved it. She stayed in happily for at least an hour and never complained once. It was great to spend so much time with both of them in the same day. I am trying to ignore the starers after Dawn told me that I am giving them too much attention. The idea about making business cards is a really good one and I will get to work on that as soon as I get home.

Today I got up early to sort Lucy out and It was nice to spend some time alone with her before everybody sufaced. We drove to a different beach this afternoon which was beautiful but a little rough after the winds last night. Lucy has been really placid all week and has not craved attention although she has had more attention than usual from the other children. Samantha (Lucy's cousin) has been brilliant. Lucy sat with Samantha this morning for over an hour on her knee never complaining , just happy to be involved with the other children. It is so nice to see that and it reinforces our belief that Lucy is a normal 3 year old who thrives on the attention of other children. At theis time of the holiday it is time to think about coming home again. We will have another great day tomorrow but it never lasts long enough. Next year hopefully we can make it 2 weeks.

We should have said " Super Star" which Lucy May is, and being a "Super Star" she's bound to get the "Starers"

We're all home again - after a wonderful week in the sun. I'd rather walk next time than fly Monarch again - they're so rubbish !
It was a great holiday and so nice to spend more time with Lucy - other than the brief and occasional weekend visits. Samantha and James both loved playing with her and holding her - and James, when he thought no-one was looking, would often go up to Lucy and give her a little kiss and a cuddle. We can see as well how relaxed and contented she is when she's surrounded by other children.
We're already looking forward to the next holiday.....

Let us know how she gets on at school this week.
