Well almost, as you'll see.
It was all about Smiley. She's had a good weekend. There was bowling on Saturday and a Funfair on Sunday, though that was cut short due to a message from my son that he wasn't feeling well. So that put a big question mark over our planned trip to the Dublin Parade today. I was anxious about it anyway. When she was little, the wheelchairs were allowed on the pavement edge with no barriers, so she could see and feel a part of it all. But last time we went, we were squashed into this pen and she saw almost nothing. I'd heard that things had improved, so I applied for tickets again this year. Just for the two of us: both my son and eldest daughter would now rather chill out at home. I got her ready and we headed into town, late as usual.
