Swings & Roundabouts

We went to the local school fete today. It’s a big event. My boy doesn’t go there, he goes to the special school, but this is where my niece & nephews went, where friends kids go – it’s a familiar, friendly place.
And it was humming! So many people! It was a bit overwhelming for my big 6yo. He hit the bitumen a few times, needing some warm cuddles and gentle encouragement to push through his anxieties enough to acclimatise to the high levels of sensory input. But he made it.
We stayed long enough to see the baby animals, walk around the various rides, buy a cupcake for N, then have a drink & a sausage with some friends on a perfect autumn day.
