HD Brows and me

By | November 8, 2017

One advantage of being a blondie is that any (unwanted) hairs don’t show up as quickly as they may for people with darker hair, but a disadvantage is that some hairs might not show up at all! I’m talking about eyebrows, which can really frame your frame and make such a difference to wellbeing and […]

Nailing it! 

By | May 17, 2017

Let me take you back a few years…. Just over three.  It was a revoltingly wet and windy January day and Hubbie and I were putting up a trampoline in our garden. Quite why we didn’t wait until the weather was better, I can’t remember but anyway.. Trampolines are quite easy to assemble aren’t they, […]

By | May 27, 2015

It’s been another relaxed day here, so I’m going to go off track a bit and update on my wellbeing – something a bit overdue. Those who’ve read my posts for a while, will remember that towards the end of 2014 I was feeling very down and exhausted.  The last few years of school battles, […]

Raising my hand

By | November 25, 2014

I have no hesitation at speaking up when it comes to my children and what I feel is best for them. I have to, with both being on the autistic spectrum, it’s me (and Hubbie) fighting their corner or nobody. But when it comes to my own health and what’s best for me, I’m a […]

Inside Out #WellbeingWednesday

By | October 30, 2014

My wellbeing always takes a nosedive during the school holidays, we’ve had half term this week. It’s a time when obviously the children’s needs come first and throw autism into the mix and it can feel a case of needing eyes and ears everywhere to divert any potential upset. All along I’ve told myself that […]
