Calendar – My #WOTW 

By | March 31, 2017

I’ve been wishing March away, waiting for an appointment with my consultant on 30/3, which is silly really because yesterday came and went with me feeling just as unsure. He was very empathetic, very much “we don’t want to put you through any more than necessary” but has referred me onto a colleague because my […]

I love London #WOTW

By | March 23, 2017

When I was a teenager, our Capital City had such an air of mystique around it. I’d spend Saturdays taking the coach from Berkshire suburbia with my friend to London and, as it went through Chiswick, the Hammersmith flyover and into Kensington, be convinced that I’d one day be living in Chiswick, in one of […]

Waiting – Thurs 16th March 2017

By | March 16, 2017

I haven’t blogged for a while because I’d be in danger of repeating myself, over and over. Life is ticking by for T and D, we have days where it feels like we’re on that emotional rollercoaster; days where I wonder what the future holds for our very individual children and days mostly when I […]

75 per cent – Fri 27 Jan 2017

By | January 27, 2017

That’s what capacity our household has been running at for the last week as our T was on a school trip.  A residential one for seven days. Daunting if your child is NT but … lets throw high functioning autism into that, sensory issues around food and some traits that T would mask during the […]

Progress – My #WOTW – Fri 2nd Dec 2016

By | December 2, 2016

Wheee! Another Friday gone, the weeks are whizzing by, aren’t they?  But it’s all good and this week we’ve made some definite progress, my word for the week. Monday saw me take my first trip into town since my operation, it was a sort of experiment for me, to see how I’d cope.  I knew […]

Curious – Week 2 – Weds 26th Oct 2016

By | October 26, 2016

Well, it’s now two weeks since my operation and, as the title suggests I’m curious, wondering what’s going on underneath those bandages. The heavy bleeding in one foot of the first week has, thankfully, stopped, but there is a general feeling that there’s still an intermittent something going on, usually if I’ve been upright for […]

This week’s #WOTW and #Prose4T 

By | October 13, 2016

My word for this week is Recovery, and here’s why, with the #Prose4T aspect too: That procedure I fought for, appealed and won, it happened this week, And now I’m at home, recovering, the cells rejoining, regrouping, making me occasionally “squeak”. Not one foot, but two operated on, I’m an “all or nothing” girl. Never […]

Fuzzy – Thurs 22nd Sept 2016

By | September 22, 2016

That one word describes me not only tonight, but also this week, hence my #WOTW. That image, intentionally fuzzy, perfect. You see, I’ve had a day of rubbish customer service from a high street who managed to lose my personalised photo gifts I’d ordered for Hubbie’s birthday (he now knows they’re lost);  of (our local […]

Realistic – Thurs 28th July 2016 

By | July 28, 2016

I have kicked myself up the bottom this week, not literally but, it needed to be done. I’ve been on tenterhooks waiting for an appeal decision about my proposed operation for a few weeks now, it’s made me not want to plan too far in advance, the thought that I’d get a phone call, have […]

Report – Fri 15th July 2016

By | July 15, 2016

Its been a week of highs and lows, a week in which we’ve seen school reports for both T and D and a day in which the news reports have reminded us just how fragile life is and how senseless some individuals can be, in the name of religion. Report is therefore our word of […]
