So here I find myself again, writing on a blog. Last time I started a blog was in 2006 after the birth of my son. We (my husband and I) were living in Kentish Town, London back then and I thought it would be a great way of keeping our families in both Sweden and Australia in the loop with stories and photos of our new little member of the family. That blog was called The Beach Family. Anyway, not sure what happened but I probably just got busy with life as a stay-home-mum and all the activities that comes with it ;) I was lucky to have met the best people in the world that year – a group of Swedish mums. We spent most of the time together doing all sorts of fun things like having lunch at pizza express at Oxford Circus surrouned by posh business people, meeting for play dates in super cramped old Victorian houses, or just hanging out in some of the gorgeous local parks of North London. I miss them heaps.
We moved to Perth, Australia in September 2007 and this is what we now call our home. It’s warm, sunny, chilled out and I love it! Yes, I miss my family back in Sweden more than anything and I would love to see them more often. I miss the Swedish nature and that the sun doesn’t set until late in the evening in Summer. I also miss Swedish pizza…… it is just the best, no questions asked! With bearnesas – yummy!
Anyway, here I am writing on my new blog. The reason for starting a blog this time is completely different… In February 2011 our daughter Cayla was diagnosed with Cerebral palsy (left hemiplegia). I feel a need to write about it and hopefully clear my head a bit whilst doing so and also to share our story with other in similar situations and finally provide information about Cerebral palsy and hopefully clear some of the misconceptions that comes with it.
