Be Brave, Be You #BeMoreWitWitWoo

By | July 21, 2018

I entered the blogging world a few years back, primarily to reach out to other parents of autistic children, after reading their experiences and empathising with them. But then two things happened:  1.  I found I enjoyed blogging, it helped me to “blog it out” when I felt overcome by fear/anxiety/helplessness at situations where my […]

Boxes and other bits #WOTW

By | June 16, 2018

I can’t remember the last time I summed up our week in a word, probably because our weeks since last August have been changeable and, if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you’ll know that routine and planning is key when living with autism. This week though, a word has shone out! It […]

The wonky feet saga 

By | March 7, 2018

Its a strange feeling, knowing that this time in six weeks I’ll (hopefully) be at home, recovering from what should be my last operation on my feet, affectionately known as #scarfeet on the blog. Trying to imagine how things will look under the bandages and hoping that I’ll have “a matching pair” of feet, to […]

Countdown to number 3

By | February 28, 2018

One of the reasons I’ve backed away from blogging recently (which I shouldn’t really as it’s like free therapy for me!) is that foot operation number 3 is looming. No, I don’t have three feet (for any new readers), I had a both-feet operation in October 2016 which didn’t work, a remedial and successful operation […]

D sums up 2017

By | January 1, 2018

Our D, although she didn’t realise it, summed up 2017 for me in one picture on Christmas Day: These are my feet, as drawn by D, in my Christmas card. The cheeky “see the difference?” is a reference to the fact she finds it very funny that my feet are two different shapes and, in […]

Out! #TheMMLinky #SmallStepsAA #scarfeet 

By | October 30, 2017

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I realised today that I hadn’t updated anything on #scarfeet since I tweeted this picture: In which I was waiting to have an X-ray on my right foot to see how the bones were looking after my remedial operation ten weeks ago. It was a revelation in […]

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.

Thankful – My #WOTW and Weeks 2-3 Post-Op

By | September 8, 2017

I’m updating my weeks 2 and 3 #scarfeet post-op and including my Word Of The Week because they would all say the same: I’m Thankful (my Word Of The Week) very much so. Both D and T returned to school this week, both facing new challenges. For D, it was the prospect of her moving […]

Short Term Pain – Week One 

By | August 29, 2017

It’s now a week since I had my operation on my right foot and I thought I’d jot down how I’m feeling and how T and D are coping. As I’ll be also having the left foot remedied – hopefully – January 2018, it will also prompt me that initial painful days and nights will pass. The […]

Positive – My #WOTW 

By | August 25, 2017

Finally we’re at the tail-end of this week, a week I’ve been both dreading and looking forward to, at the same time. This time last week I was in a right old state, nerves about my operation  on Monday and lack of sleep were playing a part.  I must have averaged about two hours a […]
