Child’s Favourite Book – #SEND30DayChallenge

By | August 22, 2017

Today’s prompt is “Child’s Favourite Book”, oh I loved thinking about this one!  I am so grateful that both T and D really enjoy reading, it opens up new worlds for them, both in terms of the author’s imagination and the language used.  I remember many happy school holidays at my grandparents ploughing through their […]

10 things you don’t know about X #SEND30DayChallenge 

By | August 21, 2017

The second day’s blog prompt is above.  I was originally going to write this post about T and D (and did draft something which I wasn’t happy with, reading it back earlier) but I’ve chosen to re-blog a post from ABC news, around the various myths surrounding autism. I don’t normally cut and paste and all […]

Finally Post Op! 

By | August 21, 2017

Well, the first one of two anyway. At home, in bed and doing a very good impression of a cotton bud! Do you like the arrow? D finds it very funny and I’ve no doubt that it will be added to with some faces and flowers felt-tipped on in the next couple of days. It […]

By | August 20, 2017

Yes, I’m doing another challenge and one that is even closer to my heart than music. A challenge for special needs bloggers, there are a lot of us about. Each sharing our experiences and wanting to raise a little bit more awareness and acceptance within – at times, a not very open – Society. It’s […]

Day 30! #30DayMusicChallenge 

By | August 20, 2017

I know I’ve taken over 30 consecutive days to complete this but it has been a lot of fun, in between raiding my memory bank for things I’d buried. The last song(s) are ones I can really identify with: “Read All About It” just speaks to me as a blogger.  I’m not a “look at […]

Day 29 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 19, 2017

Today’s prompt is “A Song That You Remember From Your Childhood”. I have to admit that I’ve thought and thought and thought a bit more about this and couldn’t remember any, which is sad really because we always have a music channel on here when there’s not a great deal on TV but hey ho. […]

Day 28 of 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 18, 2017

Today’s prompt is “A Song By An Artist Who’s Voice That You Love”. Regular readers of my blog will know that I’m a fan of 80’s music and regularly feature these both on this challenge and in my posts. I’ve decided to feature a song by two artists, Shakespeare’s Sister, Stay: Yep, in true J-style, […]

Rugby – Our #WOTW 

By | August 18, 2017

It’s an unexpected word to sum up our week today, not a word I’d thought I’d use, being a pre-dominantly footie (well 50% anyway) family. You might have thought my word would be hospital as I had a quite lengthy pre-op on Tuesday and because the first of my rectifying feet operations is on Monday, or Music as D […]

Day 27 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 17, 2017

I have to admit, I ground to a bit of a halt over the prompt for Day 27. “A Song That Breaks Your Heart” It took me to places that I didn’t particularly want to visit, those of being 17 and thinking I’d found “The One”, of suddenly becoming a single parent with a three […]
