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.

What’s Next? A belated #WOTW 

By | September 24, 2017

I’ve been a tad absent this past week, it’s been a bit full-on. As I’m typing this, I’m sneezing and coughing, very “oh woe is me”!  T was off school for three days last week with vomiting and a heavy cold and it’s now reached me, not ideal what with my general feeling of being […]

I popped this photo onto Instagram earlier, of a truly happy D: She might look uncomfortable scrunched up but she’s not, she’s very relaxed. And the reason? Cash Trapped, a game show that has replaced The Chase on ITV1 for a few weeks, normally this change would cause D angst but she gets oh so excited and […]

Annoyed – My #WOTW 

By | July 20, 2017

If you regularly read my blogs, you’ll know I’m a “glass half full” J even when my #scarfeet are at their peak of achiness and I’m just worn down by “stuff” but not this week, I’m Annoyed. Extremely annoyed and disappointed in T’s school, which isn’t an ideal way to be during the last week […]

“It was the t-shirt” and Day 11 #30DayMusicChallenge 

By | July 12, 2017

What did the t-shirt do?  Well, a t-shirt was the cause of a bit of a meltdown for our D this morning.   After a busy Proms Week last week, this week is showing signs of being just as much change for her with her participating in a cricket (all day) “thing” yesterday and today saw […]

Minty! (inc 30 Day Music Challenge – Day 9)

By | July 10, 2017

Sometimes we have an unexpected – and really quite wonderful – “yay” moment here, one such one occurred last night. D has always used an unflavoured toothpaste as she doesn’t like orange or strawberry flavours, which means the traditional “children’s” flavours weren’t for us. I’ve lost count of the various toothpastes I’d bring home, D […]

Proms Week Day One 

By | July 3, 2017

It’s the first day of Proms Week at D’s school, something I look forward to every year. I always find it makes me extremely proud of every child who gets up onto that stage and either sings or plays an instrument, gets up in front of a packed hall, filled with pupils, teachers and parents. […]

Thank you Mrs Bucket 

By | July 1, 2017

Regular readers of my blogs will remember that I touched on how puberty was affecting D so far, what I haven’t mentioned is that “things” have gone somewhat downhill since then and she is NOT coping with puberty and all it’s side-effects at all, I had to keep her off school yesterday as she was so […]

Challenges – Our #WOTW 

By | June 29, 2017

I can’t quite believe it’s Friday tomorrow, this week has rocketed by and we’re one week closer to the end of term too, eeek! It’s been a “will it happen, won’t it happen?” time for D’s Sports Day as it was re-arranged from last week as it was too hot and then the forecast for […]

Rain didn’t stop Sports Day 

By | June 28, 2017

Ooh yesterday, was fun! Sports Days always are at D’s SN school. There are events that make you laugh – like the parents v teachers tug of war (the parents won, yay!) – and events that make you humbled – the “slow walking” race for those pupils who are out of their wheelchairs and aided […]
