Ah, um, well, it's like this....

I have been absent, a bad blogger, for a while now because of several cumulative factors - primary of which is the lack of internet connection but I must confess that life has a peculiar way of interrupting. We've had weddings, school holidays, sickness, seizures - all toppped off with WAY to much to do. So, you see, I haven't exactly had much time to write and now I'm only stopping by to say I don't have time. I'm off to do farming things while the kids are back to school and Hot Hubby does the property developing thing - we just bought two houses to rent out seeing as the bank rate is in free fall. Oh no, wait, it hit ROCK BOTTOM, any lower and we'll be paying them for the pleasure.

Hope to give you chapter and verse in the not too distant!

I got to your blog via Michelle O'Neil -- so funny that you are living in the Highlands, because in my book, I made up a town in Connecticut called Highlands, which is where my main character lives. Best of luck with everything! Looking forward to reading about your adventures!

Welcome Courtney! You may not have too much longer to wait - although your book sounds way more exciting!

I read your question to Lydia on Autism Speaks. My son was a late talker. He didn't start talking until 25 months. Then at 27 months he said a seven word sentence. "Josh pushed and I bumped my head." When he received his diagnosis a year later, the doctor said, "He probably could've talked but chose not to. Another 18 months after that, I took him to a speech language pathologist. She explained that language is like a river which ebbs and flows. Some people naturally know how to get into it without being swept off their feet while others can't. Her comment really opened my eyes to why my son either says nothing or talks everyone's ear off. He either can't get into the conversation or when he does he doesn't want to give it up.

I don't know if this applies, but I thought I'd share it.
