Meet the Bunnies! 

By | August 16, 2018

For as long as we can remember, bunnies have been very important to D. Her faithful and much-loved companion is Bunny, Bunny spent much of D’s life either held by her ears or tucked under D’s armpit which she ate/drew or needed to concentrate.  Bunny went on school trips, nestled inside a pocket on outings […]

The pros and cons of re-starting driving lessons 

By | July 26, 2018

I’m currently a non-driver, by (kind of) choice.  Nerves got the better of me during two driving tests and I was all set to put in for another test but “life” and the autism diagnosis process for our children took precedence, then the matter of schooling, then life events, then 3 feet operations since October […]

Recycling and how we can get better at it here 

By | July 26, 2018

I tended to think we were pretty good at recycling in our house. We have a de-clutter a couple of times a year with piles made, labelling them as: “keep” (but only if the items are actually going to be worn/used),  “sell” (for anything that could either be auctioned online or head off to a […]

Be Brave, Be You #BeMoreWitWitWoo

By | July 21, 2018

By | July 13, 2018

Hubby and I have been married for 16 years now, together for 18, we married on the second anniversary of our first date, which – thinking about it now – is quite handy because we only have the one date to remember! We do joke that we’d “have got less time for crime/must be due […]
