We were excited to receive the final photos from our shoot with Anna Moffat, Edinburgh based photographer, last week. The images look amazing and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved. The children acted like pros, the adults were on their best behaviour and Little Lana kept everyone in check.

Just a quick post about where we’re at with the Ally Bally Bee Project at the moment – the project behind the world’s first children’s book about dementia that my husband Matthew has been working so hard on for over 2 years now. I’m excited to say that the book is finally here and has been sent out to everybody who ordered it through Kickstarter, woohoo!
People with dementia can often show symptoms and aggression not inherently a part of their personality. Bouts of anger, retracting into their own shell, and inability to recognise their own loved ones is not uncommon.

When growing up children often hear their parents telling them to “go outside and play” knowing it is a space where they can safely let off steam, and quite possibly get out from under their feet.
