Feeling weird that nothing went wrong
so today we travelled to Spain , set the alarm for 5 am and woke up at 635! That was a bit of a rush but we made it , we made lots of noise Oscar woke happy took his medication watched tv ,the car was packed so it was an up and out job last minute few bits in the last case and hit the road jack .
im always really anxious before any holiday as for us especially for my other two children I really want them to have memorable family times , not just autism lead times away from the house, as let’s be honest it can be very much just that, and in the early days it was a bit like that , we just went someplace else to not cope that well for a while!!!!!
The airport is around 1 hr 30 minutes away, we arrive in record time no traffic , this has never been done before! Last holiday we made last call running ! But today we park valet ,lift to departure lounge, we did get stopped in security, I had to get inside a tunnel thing raise my hands, Oscar was being checked at the same time holding his hand out calling muma! But he was ok not upset treated the security officers with a smile, so funny how a child who’s so set in his ways loves to travel , we get to the gate in good time and board first that also went great , no fuss on take off at all, throughout the flight a few squeals of excitement but he sat watching films and reading books, we land I quickly change him on the plane and we’re good to go , in the back of my mind I’m thinking this can not be for real 🎉🎉🎉🎉I have to carry him to the bus as ,no buggy yet but no fighting me to get down and run, he’s very heavy(23kg) but I managed it with a heavy bag,absolutely can’t believe it , hire car found and loaded up car seat half decent for a change and that’s it we are in Spain no fuss driving to the resort .
we all really needed this break lots of very anxious children Orla started college, lorcan year 7 and Oscar year R very early starts and overtired children, so a nice break in the sun will hopefully recharge is all for winter , it’s so true life takes over it really does ,you can become stuck in the monotonous routines of daily life
orla and lorcan are relaxed there’s banter in the car , for once oscar isn’t Center of attention we’re pretty even, let’s hope today is a good sign for the rest of the week💙💙💙
for the rest of this week I shall be posting one happy thing from the day that we don’t usually do , holiday memories 💙
