Just to let you know I’ll be back to writing regularly soon, I hope! London was fabulous, so good to see family and friends, enjoy some wonderful lunches and dinners, take in some culture and see the Christmas lights, sparkling and beautiful. All over too quickly!
Back to Toronto where we stayed with the family of one of Simon’s classmates, who were lovely and it was great to meet them. Simon and I went to the One of A Kind show – hundreds of stands featuring artisan crafts, clothes and food. It was great and we really enjoyed it. Back to Peterborough with a very unwell Simon, fever, sore throat and vomiting but, given that I am heading to Sydney tomorrow, I am glad that it seems to have been a 24 hour bug. He is not quite his normal self but so much better than yesterday. Well enough to suggest going to the Electric City Bread Company for brunch, where we joined Lynette and Stuart together with Zac who was celebrating his 10th birthday! Happy Birthday Zac! It was great to see Frances whose son was at Arrowsmith last year and to hear about how he has fitted back into mainstream school. It is so heartening to hear good news stories of progress and life being better after Arrowsmith! It gives me great hope for Simon’s future, and for all the students, for that matter!
