Normality (ish) – Tues 2nd Jan 2018

By | January 2, 2018

Our living room looks as it should now, the tree and decorations are down and ready for me to forget momentarily where they are next Christmas! It’s funny how they come down much speedier than they go up! T and D both go back to school on Thursday and I’ve started the chats around going […]

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 […]

Whites, Brights and Happy Skin #ProductReview

By | September 16, 2014

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 […]
