The Box #TheMMLinky 

By | October 16, 2017

There is a box in my living room, sometimes it overflows but the contents change week by week: It’s my eBay box, items that make it into the box are destined for eBay, to go on to people that will make use of them. It’s not a huge box and I wouldn’t want it to […]

One Year On 

By | October 12, 2017

I didn’t realise it was a year today since my first both-feet operation, hasn’t it flown by? And, of course, when I did remember, I wondered how I should feel about it, bearing in mind it wasn’t a successful procedure and I’m currently 7 weeks post-op from the first remedial one in my right foot.

Goal – My Monday Motivation and #BlogTober Day 7

By | October 9, 2017

When I usually write about Goals, as a “bit” of a football family, it’s normally this: As not only has T been kicking a ball with his left foot since he could walk but Hubbie has been a Chelsea fan since he was 9….a long time. My “goal” is of a different kind, it’s to […]

By | October 9, 2017

We’re a society who just loves our phones, aren’t we? It can seem quite anti-social, seeing people transfixed by whatever is playing on their screens but, if you’re “sandwiched” between elderly parents and children, there is a way to get reassurance from your phone, for both generations. Famil.care have launched both a free app and a […]

Flowers – Day 6 #BlogTober 

By | October 6, 2017

Today’s prompt is “Flowers”. Flowers play a massive part in cheering our D up when she’s chock-a-block full of hormones. Flowers like Hyacinth, Rose, Violet and Daisy. She absolutely loves “Keeping Up Appearances” and, even though she knows virtually every scene – and will tell me what’s about to happen before it does – it […]

#BlogTober Day 5 – Education

By | October 6, 2017

Yesterday’s prompt was Education. If you’re familiar with my blog, you’ll be aware that I have a daughter in special needs school and a son in mainstream secondary. Both have autism but, due to their varying intellectual and emotional levels, are most definitely in the right environments for them.   D couldn’t cope in a […]
