Friday 16/08/91 – Birthday Party


Diary Notes – 23 years ago today I wrote in my hearing impaired son’s diary. I was writing up Hughan’s ‘Diary’ so Vanessa, at The Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town (South Africa), knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone in Botswana, so she could track Hughan’s progress. 

Hughan’s party started at 10.00 – 12.00. I got the jumping castle for the day which Hughan loves jumping on.


Because it was the school holidays I ended up having 22 children and about 8 Mum’s for tea.

A good time was had by all!

Hughan said ‘hello’ to everyone, ‘thank you’ for his present and bye-bye’ when everyone left. He is much happier today and enjoyed opening all his presents.


Well I have decided to go ahead with the Zimbabwe trip on the 19th.

(Helping parents with hearing impaired children through our experience…we are following our profoundly deaf son’s diary, from 1990, so you can see what we did to help him with his speech and hearing. Hughan is 25 years old now and he can hold a conversation on a phone. It is the little thing we did every day, over a long period of time, that has helped him. Please visit our page…’like’ and follow us to help others…Thank you :) )
