The many Mr Men of you #WOTW

By | June 23, 2017

My one word to sum up this week could have been “warm” because …well, it has been just a “tad” warm hasn’t it? It’s not though, I’ve decided – as it was Fathers Day last weekend – to devote my little piece of the blogging world to my Hubbie and the many ways in which […]

Torn – My #WOTW 

By | June 15, 2017

Torn, as soon as I wrote that word, the tune by Natalie Imbruglia popped into my head.  I LOVE that song, it brings back both good and bad memories of a time when my little family unit had been rocked to its core and we got through it. It’s felt like that kind of week, […]

Singing – My #WOTW

By | June 3, 2017

This week’s one word to sum up our week could be illustrated by a picture, our D: Singing and loving it. This picture was taken at a superstars concert at school, there’s also a video which we’ve played a few times and wanted to burst with pride watching her singing and smiling at the applause […]

The P word(s)

By | May 19, 2017

We’re at the tail end of quite an intense week, this last week.  A week in which I’ve realised just how fast D is growing up but also just how proud (my Word of the Week) I am of her. She’s 13 tomorrow, a teenager, where on earth have the last few years gone?  Regular […]

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. I’d spend Saturdays taking the coach from Berkshire suburbia with my friend to London and, as it went through Chiswick, the Hammersmith flyover and into Kensington, be convinced that I’d one day be living in Chiswick, in one of […]

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 […]

Got the Virus #WOTW #R2BC 

By | February 9, 2017

It’s funny isn’t it, the little things we find that just keep us going, in times of stress, things that enhance our wellbeing. Mine used to be chocolate, still is tbh, but it has been replaced by something a bit better for me and that produces a nice end result (you can’t always say that […]

75 per cent – Fri 27 Jan 2017

By | January 27, 2017

That’s what capacity our household has been running at for the last week as our T was on a school trip.  A residential one for seven days. Daunting if your child is NT but … lets throw high functioning autism into that, sensory issues around food and some traits that T would mask during the […]

Progress – My #WOTW – Fri 2nd Dec 2016

By | December 2, 2016

Wheee! Another Friday gone, the weeks are whizzing by, aren’t they?  But it’s all good and this week we’ve made some definite progress, my word for the week. Monday saw me take my first trip into town since my operation, it was a sort of experiment for me, to see how I’d cope.  I knew […]
