Bonding over Bands 

By | June 23, 2017

One of the things that screeched at me when D (and then T) was going through the autism diagnosis process was that they’d have no empathy.   That scared me.  The thought that – and this was my perception at the time – that, as adults, they’d not acknowledge that someone might need their help […]

The many Mr Men of you #WOTW

By | June 23, 2017

My one word to sum up this week could have been “warm” because …well, it has been just a “tad” warm hasn’t it? It’s not though, I’ve decided – as it was Fathers Day last weekend – to devote my little piece of the blogging world to my Hubbie and the many ways in which […]

Splash! 

By | June 20, 2017

It’s been another mega warm day today, hasn’t it.  A day when you wonder if it’s worth putting on make-up as it slides off your face (I did and yes, it did)! A day in which I was thrown by letters that arrived from our local hospital, telling me that my foot operation had been […]

By | June 20, 2017

When I first signed up for Twitter and then started blogging, my name was “bluecrisps”, does anyone remember that?   About 5 years ago now. Any reference to Bluecrisps still makes me smile, it always will as that was what D called cheese and onion crisps, on account of their blue packaging. She still had […]

Tones 

By | June 17, 2017

I was reminded today of the differing tones I use when speaking to people, a bit like the tonal changes in colours. We are all individual after all and able to adjust tone up or down dependent on our audience. For my children, my tones differ. T lives and breathes football, he always has done. […]

Upping our magnesium levels with MAG365

By | June 16, 2017

As regular readers of my blogs may be aware, life is never boring parenting two autistic children, it can feel draining and I have to admit, combine the stresses of everyday life with my post-operation complications and the fact I have two more scheduled for this year, it can all lead to quite a frazzled […]

Torn – My #WOTW 

By | June 15, 2017

Torn, as soon as I wrote that word, the tune by Natalie Imbruglia popped into my head.  I LOVE that song, it brings back both good and bad memories of a time when my little family unit had been rocked to its core and we got through it. It’s felt like that kind of week, […]

Bidvine – doing the research for you 

By | June 14, 2017

I’m the sort of person who likes to plan, as much as I can, this is not only necessary for my two autistic children but it makes it easier for me if I make lists of “to do’s”,  not only for myself as a blogger but, as I come up to the first of two […]
