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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
