Highlights – October 2012

I’ve abandoned my Highlights section for the past couple of months. But this month I wanted to highlight the past couple of weeks with one picture which says it all:

October was a month full of child-related stories. A Gozitan neighbour of my mother’s is enduring each and every mother’s worst nightmare. Help was requested, help was granted and now we all wait for good news for little Leah. In England, news has come up of a famous, beloved and now deceased TV presenter who got on with disgusting acts behind the scenes. Acts involving underage and vulnerable children.

Hearing and reading these stories make me hug C that bit tighter. And pray that for the rest of her life she will always be safe, healthy and surrounded by people who love her as much as we do x

Highlights – January 2012

Think back this past month. What is the one image, that one phrase or one moment which sticks out? What put a smile on your face, what made you think? We all have that one highlight, that one instance which we remember more vividly than others.

It’s just a question of finding it.

January's highlight for me was our trip to Bruges. It was our first real holiday in a year, and although short, it was perfect. We over-indulged in chocolate, we experienced manoevering around the city in a push-chair (particularly hard considering Bruges' streets are all cobblestones) and we remembered how much fun travelling is!

Tell me yours 😉
