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 […]

Be Brave, Be You #BeMoreWitWitWoo

By | July 21, 2018

I entered the blogging world a few years back, primarily to reach out to other parents of autistic children, after reading their experiences and empathising with them. But then two things happened:  1.  I found I enjoyed blogging, it helped me to “blog it out” when I felt overcome by fear/anxiety/helplessness at situations where my […]

Boxes and other bits #WOTW

By | June 16, 2018

I can’t remember the last time I summed up our week in a word, probably because our weeks since last August have been changeable and, if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you’ll know that routine and planning is key when living with autism. This week though, a word has shone out! It […]

A two-way Motivation #TheMMLinky 

By | April 30, 2018

I’m putting my hand up and apologising because I haven’t felt motivated to join in with this linky for a little while, my lovely co-hosts have kept it going whilst I’ve stepped back, worried a lot and frantically ticked things off a long list. But, two weeks ago today, that all changed and this happened: […]

The wonky feet saga 

By | March 7, 2018

Its a strange feeling, knowing that this time in six weeks I’ll (hopefully) be at home, recovering from what should be my last operation on my feet, affectionately known as #scarfeet on the blog. Trying to imagine how things will look under the bandages and hoping that I’ll have “a matching pair” of feet, to […]

Countdown to number 3

By | February 28, 2018

One of the reasons I’ve backed away from blogging recently (which I shouldn’t really as it’s like free therapy for me!) is that foot operation number 3 is looming. No, I don’t have three feet (for any new readers), I had a both-feet operation in October 2016 which didn’t work, a remedial and successful operation […]

D sums up 2017

By | January 1, 2018

Our D, although she didn’t realise it, summed up 2017 for me in one picture on Christmas Day: These are my feet, as drawn by D, in my Christmas card. The cheeky “see the difference?” is a reference to the fact she finds it very funny that my feet are two different shapes and, 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.

Thankful – My #WOTW and Weeks 2-3 Post-Op

By | September 8, 2017

I’m updating my weeks 2 and 3 #scarfeet post-op and including my Word Of The Week because they would all say the same: I’m Thankful (my Word Of The Week) very much so. Both D and T returned to school this week, both facing new challenges. For D, it was the prospect of her moving […]

Short Term Pain – Week One 

By | August 29, 2017

It’s now a week since I had my operation on my right foot and I thought I’d jot down how I’m feeling and how T and D are coping. As I’ll be also having the left foot remedied – hopefully – January 2018, it will also prompt me that initial painful days and nights will pass. The […]
