Change always comes bearing gifts.
Hello out there! As it has been two months since my last blog post, I thought it was an opportune time to launch back into it for 2010. I'm feeling a bit like one of my friends who frequently hangs onto already overdue library books in the hope that there will be an amnesty on late returns. No amnesty for bloggers so here I am, back in the saddle, albeit slightly shamefaced!
I love the notion of change as a gift. It's a great way to approach life and a brilliant attitude to pass onto children. It helps make them more resilient people. We've taken to playing a game at the dinner table which I picked up here. Each night we share a high and a low from the day. It's a low key way to talk through some of the challenges that we're encountering as we deal with things like; the start of a new year of schooling, Mr Button's long awaited return to work, the end of the BEST HOLIDAY EVER. The game is not a hit with everyone, bear in mind one of the smallest buttons won't speak and the other small button tells us that seeing the neighbour is his high - everyday! She is a pretty great neighbour so I do understand where he is coming from. More about the changes at Button Central over some future blog posts and lots of lovely pictures, too.
There, it's done! It's like I was never gone. Promise I won't leave it so long between visits next time.
