BUDDY Well Done! 

By | December 8, 2017

I’m a tad proud of our girl this week, here’s her school photo, she looks so absolutely wonderfully happy! It’s a long way from those early school photos where she’d either not be looking at the camera or seem as if she wanted to run off and get away from the unfamiliar set-up. She’s happy […]

Managing the expectations of Christmas 

By | November 30, 2017

Well, it’s December 1st tomorrow and the Christmas songs will be playing on the music channels, the shops will be busier and there is the expectation of the “perfect” Christmas isn’t there? Those adverts with a large family table brimming with food, the laughter as the crackers are pulled, jokes are told and the proud […]

The cuppa 

By | November 26, 2017

We had a first here today, D made her dad a cup of tea! She chose the mug too. Life skills is something that her SN school focus on, we get diary notes occasionally saying that her class had made a hot drink and it’s something that, even though she only drinks water, is a […]

EHCP beckons 

By | November 12, 2017

D received her Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) at age 5.5, it was very much welcomed as she wasn’t coping in mainstream education at all and we knew that for her to go down the SN school route, she needed a Statement. Her SEN Statement was refused at the first attempt and I remember […]

Our T at 15yrs 

By | November 5, 2017

Wow, how on earth can time pass so quickly?  It doesn’t seem 15 years yesterday since we welcomed our son into the world.  In typical T-fashion, he wasn’t early or late, but bang on his due date.   These past few years have seen challenges for T; from the realisation that his primary school wasn’t […]

Yay! 

By | October 30, 2017

Ooh that’s a bit strange for a Monday, you might be thinking.. I’ve been doing a few “Yay’s” this afternoon as we’ve had confirmation that D has home-school transport until the end of the summer term 2018. A massive relief as my next remedial foot operation isn’t likely to be until next Spring, the extended school transport […]

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 […]

D’s best friend 

By | October 25, 2017

Every school morning, D heads off down our garden path to the pavement, it’s a short walk but one in which she’s always accompanied, by our cat, Bitsey. Bitsey will trot after her, tail up in the air, meowing.  Then, when D stops to wait for her school bus, Bitsey will wait too, more meowing […]
