No time for a comedown

29 Nov

There is always a bit of a fear that after such a big build up to such an amazing event, we would all crash down into a sadness pit. BUT so far, there has been no time for crashing! The weekend fun continued with a visit up to Gisborne to see Nanna and Pop and spend some time with Milli, Charlotte, Taylor and Michelle who had driven all the way over from Adelaide for the Special Day. It was great to hang out, Tilda loves seeing her cousin Charlotte who is just 3 months younger, she has a particular fondness for stroking her on the head!

Then on Sunday afternoon, we had been given a number of passes to the Christmas Spectacular at Moonee Valley Racecourse from those beautfiul people at Wonderland. Included in the day was a Dora show!! So my sister and I, Tilda, Charlie, Thomas and Malachy all headed off for an afternoon. Again, the sun shone down and Tilda was delighted to see the her favorite explorer.

Ok, I have no idea why that is sideways but you get the general gist. Happiness and Delight!


She also enjoyed sliding down the massive slide.

No roller coasters unfortuntely but it was a really nice way to cap off an amazingly fun weekend.

There doesn’t seem to be anytime for comedowns until sometime next year. We have birthday’s to attend, end of school concerts to be in, Christmas to get ready for and then both Tilda and I have the whole of January off which will completely fabulous. I plan to spend a lot of the time down at the beach so feel free to come and join me!

Will report back after all our various doctors appointments. Suffice to say that Tilda is in good cheer, eating enough to make me not panic about it and the topomax wean is going very well. Huzzah!

    Thank you Laura and Simon for posting the marvellous pictures of Tilda’s wish day on your blog and allowing us to view them from the UK. What a wonderful day for Matilda – love her multi-colour tights. We still remember Tilda as the bright little toddler we last saw in Darwin and we’re so pleased the day was a great success and that so many friends and family came to support you.

    It was also great to see photos of the family and we wish you all a peaceful Christmas and hope to see you in March when we visit Janet and Bob. lots of love Esther and John

    It was great to see Peter’s letter in today’s Age (30 November). I agree with every word and wish I’d had the grace and good manners to think of such a public acknowledgement myself.I am sure he spoke for all of us.

    Many thanks for a wonderful day – you couldn’t have asked for more and there was such an atmosphere of happiness and good fun. Surprisingly the most talked about item from Lexi (4) was Tilda’s stripped tights! Have a wonderful Christmas!
