Those Two Words – Sun 4th Dec 2016

By | December 4, 2016

It’s been a day of attempting to get organised with regard to an upcoming event, one that is causing me some concern. It’s not D’s Annual Review, although that is this week but: School Trip.  A residential week-long school trip for T, happening at the end of January and as part of his PE GCSE […]

Bye bye Buggy (on the school run anyway) #SSAmazingAchievements

By | July 30, 2014

I’m writing this post today about a #SSAmazingAchievement that has slowly but surely crept up on D and I. It concerns this: We’ve used a SN buggy for years now, it’s acted as D’s safety net. She’ll walk beside me and then her sensory issues will take over, it could be someone walking behind us […]

A soothing light idea

By | December 31, 2013

We’ve just had a light delivered that I ordered (and paid for) from Argos, I’m really pleased with it and wanted to share the details. It’s a Laser Sphere colouring changing lamp and produces the following lovely, calming effects: The lamp is operated by a push button at the front and comes complete with a […]

It doesn’t happen often… Sun 29th Dec 2013

By | December 29, 2013

As the title would suggest, we had a rare event today… Sensory issues mean that we all rarely eat the same meal and I will sometimes end up serving up 3 different ones, Christmas lunch was a roast-type thing for Hubbie and I and something else for T and D. Tonight however, we all ate […]

The Earrings #SSAmazingAchievements

By | November 16, 2013

A couple of years ago, in the summer holidays, D decided she’d like her ears pierced. It wasn’t something to be considered lightly as her stranger anxieties and sensory issues meant that we may not even get into the appointment. I also didn’t want her to be judged at all, but at the same time, […]

Our Onesie plans for Christmas

Below is my latest post for Kiddy Charts. Regular readers of my posts will recognise who will be wearing one of the onesie’s, maybe more. We’re aiming for a snuggly, sensory-loving Christmas and, after a long year, it will be welcomed. Thanks to Helen for the opportunity as ever x. Preparing for Christmas – the […]

The Big Moaner #funee

By | November 6, 2013

It seems a little bit mean to write this funee today, whilst poor old Mr Bluecrisps is suffering at home with "man flu" but …here goes. Whenever it’s hair clippers time at home, I dread it. It’s not the fact that T wriggles and squirms, I can cope with that. It’s the fact that DECADES […]

Our Garden, Our Sanctuary

By | October 28, 2013

When we moved into our house 10 years ago, the back garden was very sedate, very appropriate for the previous owners. It was half-paved (not ideal for toddlers) and had a low feature wall with a herb garden. We very quickly set about laying turf, replacing the fence that wouldn’t withstand anymore wind and the […]

A pot and a kettle #funee

By | October 22, 2013

One of the challenges of life with T and D are their very complex and varied sensory issues, this impacts every aspect of home life, the major one being food. Much as I would love for us to sit down for a stereo-typical Sunday roast (yes, maybe even using oxo cubes too), it hasn’t happened […]

A hairbrush!

By | October 13, 2013

I never ever thought I’d get a picture of D voluntarily brushing her hair, but there she is, brushing and looking at her reflection, like the little lady she is turning out to be. Hairbrushing and hair washing have always been a bit of a sensory nightmare for D, the brushes were always "too spiky" […]
