The Ultimate Joy Ride

It’s been one of those days when you wonder if you’ll ever get to sit down for a cuppa.

But this morning we took part in something rather wonderful. Through the local children’s disability service and parent support forum, an invitation was extended to all families of children with special needs to spend two hours at the fair completely free of charge.

They had a go on everything. Dodgems, twisty rides, waltzy ones, bouncy this and slidey that… EVERYTHING.

They were even handed free candy floss on tap (and yes: the sugar highs and lows that followed were phenomenal. *sigh*)

To say they had a blast would be an understatement.

And watching their delighted, adrenaline-pumped smiles was one of the loveliest things I’ve done all summer.

As was the lie-down with a cuppa when we got home.

Genuinely.
