Back on the bus! 

By | April 25, 2017

The Easter school holidays flew by and D just could not wait to get back to school, bless her. It wasn’t just the routine – that she craves and needs – although that played a big part – it was the fact that she’d be going back onto home-school transport from now until the end […]

The Eye Test

By | April 19, 2017

If I were to sum up our Easter holidays in one word, it would have to be “cough”.  Poor old D has had a vicious cough for the past few weeks and it’s been quite demoralising for her. Regular readers may remember how much D detests the taste and smell of calpol, it proves just […]

Calendar – My #WOTW 

By | March 31, 2017

I’ve been wishing March away, waiting for an appointment with my consultant on 30/3, which is silly really because yesterday came and went with me feeling just as unsure. He was very empathetic, very much “we don’t want to put you through any more than necessary” but has referred me onto a colleague because my […]

I love London #WOTW

By | March 23, 2017

When I was a teenager, our Capital City had such an air of mystique around it.

Our Trooper – Tues 21st March 2017

By | March 21, 2017

You may have seen from my Facebook feed that yesterday took a rather unexpected turn, after a phone call from D’s SN school. The moment when your heart has an extra beat as you see the school’s number flash up on your phone is never good for nerves is it?  Poor D had collided heads […]

Waiting – Thurs 16th March 2017

By | March 16, 2017

I haven’t blogged for a while because I’d be in danger of repeating myself, over and over. Life is ticking by for T and D, we have days where it feels like we’re on that emotional rollercoaster; days where I wonder what the future holds for our very individual children and days mostly when I […]
