Chocolate has never tasted so good!


We had a lovely Easter. It has been so lovely being at home together with William happy and healthy. We have spent most of the time at home as we can't go out to the park in the rain and can't go there on a really sunny day in the school holidays as it is too busy. We have enjoyed playing in the garden together and getting out as and when we can but the best thing has been just hanging out together. This afternoon saw me getting some work done whilst watching the girls play on The Sims on the Wii and William busying himself with his engines. It has been nice just doing our own things but doing it relaxing together at home.

Oh, and the best thing of all has been to see William licking chocolate and sweets and even a twiglet. More tiny baby steps towards eventually eating and getting off his gastrostomy feeds. He likes the taste of chocolate and has now stopped washing away his little tastes immediately with water. The girls and I managed to give up chocolate for the whole of Lent too. Chocolate has never tasted better as it does in this house right now!

It looks like you've had a very happy easter. I've got a mini-parcel for the children but have only just posted it so it is going to be a tad late!
Glad the tasting is going well :o)
Have a good weekend,
