I took mum to the park where I managed to coax her into using her right hand and arm for the first time in four years to dunk ginger bread man biscuits into her tea and then lift them into her mouth. She struggled at first as the right hand had trouble finding the position of the mouth in correlation to her cheek but then she got the hang of it and was dunking all by herself. Just wonderful to see the progress! And so here is an inocouous photo of her with tea in one hand and a ginger biccy in the other, watching children playing in the distance which appears like it’s  a normal everyday occurrence but was actually a momentous milestone for her.
