Did you even realise I had gone? Typepad was the victim of some kind of cyber attack recently, and blogs were not visible for several days. Happily, I can now see mine, and several other Typepad blogs that I read, so it seems they have got it sorted now. Not that you missed very much from me, of course!! We continued to have a very lazy Easter break, and are now trying to get back in the swing of things. J always finds the transition a bit difficult after any kind of break, and I think we are also in the full swing of puberty kicking in, so there have been a few grumpy mornings! I think he's at quite a tricky stage, to be honest, looking like he's getting so grown up, but still feeling very much like a child. It's often said that AS kids are a couple of years emotionally behind their peers, and that seems very true in J's case. At 11, he still wants all his old toys, whereas at the same age, W was getting rid of all his. Apart from anything else, it causes a hell of a lot of clutter! I am trying to gently tidy up, reorganise and declutter, and have been sifting out little bits here and there that I can safely dispose of without WW3 breaking out! And I even managed to tidy up all my sewing paraphernalia in our dining room and can actually see the sideboard now!
