Earlier this year, we discovered Little Robot is colour blind. From then on, things made sense. How he’d struggled to learn colours when we tried to teach him. Why he’d always draw in black or dark blue. Why he’d tell me his favourite colour was black.
It came as no big surprise to me, after all my brother is colour blind, my granddad was colour blind, it runs in the family. Though hearing those words made me sad. Had he ever felt frustrated, confused, even stupid because he couldn’t see colours the same as us and we didn’t know. That thought and one other upset me greatly at the time.
Every year we love to visit the Christmas Tree Festival. It normally takes place in the first week of December and really gets us feeling festive and it raises money for the church and the hospital charity too.
This year, 63 trees were decorated by various local groups and organisations. It is beautiful inside the church especially with Christmas carols being played on the piano as we viewed the trees. Here’s some pictures from our visit.
My boys loved seeing the nativity scene. We have a wooden scene at home and they’ve been rehearsing their nativity plays at school, so they were very interested in the large scene at the church and loved that real straw was used.
