I’m back – plus an update

Hey there!

How goes it? Can anyone actually believe we are in April now? I’m sure with each passing year as I get older the weeks and months just fly by faster. Anyone else feel like this?

I decided recently that I wanted to get back into blogging, so before I start with various topics I thought I would do a little life update.

So I think the last time I wrote we were having our kitchen done…

It’s safe to say that having our kitchen done has made a huge difference. We just have so much more room now; we have double the amount of worktop space and extra cupboards. Honestly, getting the slim-line cupboards on the opposite wall was the best thing we did. Mr Shep and I made a roast dinner and baked cookies AT THE SAME TIME! Honestly it felt like a revelation!

We’ve had some lovely celebrations, Valentine’s Day, William’s birthday and more recently my birthday. It’s been wonderful to actually celebrate things with people. I haven’t celebrated my birthday with people and out of lockdown since 2019!

We had a lovely trip to a farm.

Finally, I don’t know if I have mentioned this on my blog yet however….for the last for years Mr Shep and I have been going through the system of getting Alfie diagnosed with various SEND difficulties. I spoken about it more over on my Instagram however it is suspected that Alfie has ADHD, Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder. It hasn’t been an easy ride, getting people to believe us, gathering evidence, sending mass loads of lengthy forms and many many emails, meetings and rejected referrals.

Although I am pleased to say Alfie seems to be doing really well at the moment and school are extremely helpful. They have helped us put lots of things in place to help him manage better and he’s also attended a circus class for children with similar difficulties with him. They say parenting is hard and it is. However, parenting a child with multiple SEN issues is on a whole other level but I wouldn’t change Alfie for all the tea in China as they say.

So I hoped you liked my little update. I can’t wait to get back to blogging, even if no one reads it, it makes me happy to have a little space for me. If you have any subjects you want me to write about let me know.

Much Love

Mrs Shep
