teenager who loves her bed, except on a weekend!! She adores
school and her friends there but it is a real battle to get her
out of her pit first thing in the morning. She is very strong for
her size and knows all the tricks to have a few more minutes sleep
each day. Shame it doesn’t work on a Sunday morning.
favourite pastime is shopping, like any other female. We have to
take ‘baby’ with us on each outing especially to Asda. Now this
can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when she drops her ‘baby’
and gives the people in the aisle heart attacks because it looks
like a real one! Many a time I have had dirty looks from mums who
think I shouldn’t carry the ‘baby’ slung under my armpit, head
dangling, or me dragging it by its arm. Most people at Asda know
Georgia well but she is lethal pushing the trolley – no-one is
safe, and if we have a trolley each she will definitely escape my
view with a quick dash around the aisles before I even know she
Her definitive loud giggle or so-called singing
will always lead me to her.
A bit about the family - I have
just re-married and Georgia adores Steve and he adores her. Her
Dad now lives in Oxfordshire, which is about an hour away from us,
but she sees him regularly. She has two sisters, Natalie who is 23
and Charlotte who is 21. She drives them to distraction and causes
mayhem with her behaviour but they do love her to bits. If Georgia
was a teenager, without special needs, then I dread to think what
she would be up to. My hair would certainly be much greyer and
alopecia would probably have set in, but I am sure she would be a
different girl. So, in many respects, I wouldn’t change her for
the world however sad it makes us feel.
Through Georgia we
have met so many wonderful people who are truly are an inspiration
and we feel quite humble in comparison. Yes, I can’t deny that
life is very hard at times but we have so many happy memories that
outweigh the not so good ones. We have discovered who our ‘true’
friends are but sadly have lost many throughout the years too.
We also have two cats, Nellie and Mimi who are still a little
wary but after 7 years have the most brilliant hiding places. We
are about to have an addition to the family, a fox red retriever
called Bruno. We were going to call him ‘Baxter’ but had to change
it as Georgia couldn’t say Baxter she kept saying B***er instead.
She can’t quite say Bruno either but it sounds a lot safer!! He is
just 8 weeks of age and Georgia is so excited. We hope that he
will become not only our best friend but hers too.
