Playing The Game – Sun 29th Nov 2015

By | November 29, 2015

   The above (M&S branded) was one of my finds at D’s school fair yesterday.  It always makes me chuckle that we donate to the fair after a de-clutter and then attend and buy a bit more! This looked good though, it hadn’t been used and I thought it would appeal to the competitive members […]

Our Tween – Tues 17th Feb 2015

By | February 17, 2015

Oh T has looked forward to and needed this half term. The early starts (leaving at 7.45am for the school bus), the homework and the fact he’s a “small fish in a big pond” as a year 7 in secondary school, they’ve all contributed to a weary T. The last few weeks have been quite […]

Cosy! #MagicMoments

By | February 16, 2015

Sometimes our little moments of magic can be seem extremely small to others, but magic nonetheless. This week’s is a bit “old lady with cats” but a very cosy one. I don’t drive and therefore my “plates of meat” (feet) are my transport. School runs, shopping etc, it’s off we go. Add in the facts […]

Operation Bunny – Sun 25th Jan 2015

By | January 25, 2015

There is something more important in D’s life than cuddles, me, fish and chips and even Minecraft. Bunny. Her faithful companion. It was all too evident just how important Bunny is to her when Bunny disappeared for eight (very long) days and nights a while back. Bunny is clutched tightly on the way to school […]

PlayMobil – Sat 13th Dec 2014

By | December 13, 2014

PlayMobil has always been a big part of D’s life, even if she hadn’t actually played with it. When she was in nursery, Reception and for much of Year 1, she’d carry a little bag around with her. Sometimes 2 or 3 bags, it depended on how much she needed them for security, to deal […]

Troopers – Mon 8th Dec 2014

By | December 8, 2014

One of the highlights of the run up to Christmas is seeing D performing with her class in front of parents. All children with disabilities, physical or otherwise. Children who are attending their SN school because mainstream would be too challenging. One of the lines they sang today was “you are all little stars” and […]

Family Film – Sun 30th Nov 2014

By | November 30, 2014

It’s very rare that T and D (D especially) will sit and watch a family film, especially if they haven’t seen it before. It’s that resistance to change, that fear of the unknown and unwillingness to just “test the water”. Any DVD we watch tend to be old favourites, the Ice Age/Rio/Madagascar series are all […]

Brunch munch! Sun 16th Nov 2014

By | November 16, 2014

Today meant a lot of changes for T and D, a lot. But, a bit of jostling aside, which I guess was a way of relieving the tensions that they were both feeling, it went very well. There was so much out-of-the-ordinary for D: Taking the car to Grandad’s and then walking 20 minutes into […]

The Castle – Sat 1st Nov 2014

By | November 1, 2014

It’s done, the homework that’s been a family effort, that we’ve been working on all week. The task was to build a castle and it was the last three words that T wrote in his planner that got me thinking…”can be edible”. Images of a castle with biscuit bricks presented themselves and I think at […]

Kurling – Mon 13th Oct 2014

By | October 13, 2014

It hasn’t been a usual Monday at school for D, this afternoon she took part in an inter-schools Kurling tournament. Normally sporting events take place earlier in the school day and parents aren’t allowed to go and watch, today we were! There were 5 teams from mainstream school and a team from D’s SN school, […]
