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 […]

Got the Virus #WOTW #R2BC 

By | February 9, 2017

It’s funny isn’t it, the little things we find that just keep us going, in times of stress, things that enhance our wellbeing. Mine used to be chocolate, still is tbh, but it has been replaced by something a bit better for me and that produces a nice end result (you can’t always say that […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC – Fri 1st July 2016

By | July 1, 2016

This year has whizzed by and it’s hard to believe that T and D have just two weeks left of summer term, I’m mega relieved that their schools both finish on the same day as some in the Borough are not finishing until the following Wednesday, now that would have caused problems!  One of the […]

Funky Bananas and other #R2BC – Thurs 9th June 2016

By | June 9, 2016

Bit of honesty here, I didn’t think I’d have any Reasons To Be Cheerful this week, we certainly didn’t last week. I’ve cried probably every day this week, sometimes silent tears and sometimes frustrated tears about our electric situation.  An anticipated phone call brought no results today and that might be for another post. I […]

Mr Worry – #WOTW and #R2BC 

By | May 26, 2016

It’s far to say that we have more than our share of anxieties in this house, my children can worry as if it were an Olympic sport …. and then some.  It seems to (at times) part and parcel of autism parenting but we persevere and hope that a new day brings a new perspective. […]

Anticipation – My #WOTW and #R2BC 

By | May 19, 2016

After the last two extremely busy and emotion-filled weeks, it’s been nice to have a reasonable one this week, one in which D has been grinning away in anticipation everyday because tomorrow is her birthday. It’s been lovely, she’s woken up happy and squeak-filled every day and enjoyed the countdown.  It’s only really the last […]

This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC – Fri 13th May 2016

By | May 13, 2016

It’s been a lovely, sunny end to the week here, I wish I could say the emotions and general ambience of our week has been similar, unfortunately it hasn’t. It’s been down to this: Mud. Good old slippery, gloopy mud.  A short word for the week, but one that sums it up nicely. It was […]
