And this is why I live here, although it was actually the first beach trip this year
There are few things that bring me more joy than being able to spend some time (or even eat!) 'al fresco'. Today, I'm dog-sitting too, so that's an added treat, and although I'm in bed again exhausted after a couple of hours, my canine companion is continuing to enjoy the ambience on my behalf!
This year so far has really been shaped by events that give cause to think about autonomy and communication. 2018 began with a sharp increase in the number of weird, seizure-like episodes, which have been happening on and off since the summer of 2015.
