Getting back into it – #WellbeingWednesday

By | February 6, 2019

I haven’t written one of these for a while, have I? Truth be known, events of last year took their toll on me emotionally (if you don’t know, sepsis in November and the prospect of another foot op this year) and my confidence has nose-dived, I’m not an over-sharer anyway, I’d rather stay silent, feeling […]

I’m an introvert and so is our autistic daughter, that’s okay by me!

By | January 26, 2019

There are many types of people in this world, some have “labels”, others don’t but what we all have in common is that we have our own ways of coping/dealing with situations. I’ve said it before, I’m not a “coooooeeee, look at me!” person, to be honest, I’d find it exhausting! The pressure of always […]

What I’ve learnt from 2018

By | December 31, 2018

Blimey, where did the year go? It’s absolutely flown by and there’s been much to learn from as we head into 2019. I’ve been decidedly quieter on all things social-media this year – more of that later – but, in a way, that’s a positive, because I can look back now and share. This year […]

Sepsis and beyond

By | December 7, 2018

When I published this picture a couple of weeks ago, I was in hospital, thinking I’d gone in with a hefty bout of Cellulitis, I didn’t realise amidst my drowsiness that it was sepsis. The doctor who made a house call arrived within about 20 minutes after we called and he phoned an ambulance, which […]

Being Quiet Is Okay, Isn’t It? 

By | October 23, 2018

I know I haven’t blogged much about school life for D and T recently but something said at D’s parents evening at her SN school last week has stuck with me. Our girl is doing okay, more than okay at the moment, she’s started a GCSE course (we are so proud) in a subject which […]

Yesterday 

By | October 13, 2018

This post would have been different yesterday, 12th October.  It wouldn’t have been positive, in fact I doubt I’d have completed it. Yesterday marks two years since my first both feet operation and it’s fair to say that I’ve lost my way since then, finding that the tools which used to be so handy for […]

By | September 5, 2018

It’s been a day of smiles today.    Smiles for D as she headed back to school into a class with her teachers from last year and knowing who her classmates will be  – which is so important when it comes to preparing her for the new school year. Smiles as she and T headed […]

Meet the Bunnies! 

By | August 16, 2018

For as long as we can remember, bunnies have been very important to D. Her faithful and much-loved companion is Bunny, Bunny spent much of D’s life either held by her ears or tucked under D’s armpit which she ate/drew or needed to concentrate.  Bunny went on school trips, nestled inside a pocket on outings […]

As is the norm with our children, they both much prefer being in the house or garden, individually they rely so much on the school routine that, the changes greatly affect […]
