Sun, sea & sugar...

Posted on: 23/12/2015

We are having a wonderful time in the Maldives, where the sun continues to shine despite a poor forecast and where Christmas is becoming ever more apparent. Angelina is flying around the island on her bike and fearlessly trying a variety of water sports including scuba diving and paragliding. Ava is thoroughly enjoying kids club, especially the arts and crafts and baking. She is also keeping up with her daily exercise by swimming and practicing her walking in the pool. She is very unsteady on her feet, even with constant support, but we are lucky to have so many caring people here to help her get around. Mobility is not actually proving to be the trickiest thing here, rather that is Ava's intake of sugar. So many people want to spoil her with candy, cakes and cookies, not to mention dessert being offered at every meal, including breakfast. Aside from the obvious concerns, sugar is very detrimental to nerve damage (the reason Ava's balance is so poor), so we are having to try our best to ration the treats. Though I must admit that even I am tempted by the spectacular gingerbread houses which have appeared around the main restaurant. Can't wait to see what other fun things are lined up for the festive period, hopefully they are not all edible...
