Lego is more than just lovely bright colourful bricks to us, Lego has been a massive part of our family life for the last four and a half years. Little Bird discovered Lego just before he turned 4 years old and I was soon to discover that it was going to be a lifeline for my son. When Little Bird turned 4 years old he was building Lego sets designed for children up to the age of 8 years old all on his own.
It didn’t take me long to release there was something special about my boy and their was something truly amazing between him and Lego bricks. After a long fight with hospitals and doctors we finally got a diagnosis two months ago that Little Bird has Aspergers Syndrome and high functioning autism. Every appointment we have had with the specialists and doctors we were quizzed about what he loves doing the most, every time we were asked that question and we would always reply with Lego!
Both of my children have been big fans of the Angry Birds game for a very long time, we love it at Christmas when they bring out the Angry Birds Seasons and we look forward to our daily countdown game. A few months ago the children were excited to see a trailer for the new Angry Birds Movie that is out at the cinema now and Little Bird was even more excited when he heard that the Angry Bird range had arrived at Lego.
You know Summer is on its way when the grass in your garden is up to your knees and you have to blow the cobwebs off your lawnmower and put it into action. I was late cutting my grass last year and decided this year I was going to be on top of it early. The weather this year has been strange to say the least. We had daffodiles popping up in January and everything seemed to peek early. Our grass has got a mind of its own and decided in February to have a spurt on and start growing. You know what its like once you have made that first cut, it just doesn’t stop after that.
