Boxes and other bits #WOTW

By | June 16, 2018

I can’t remember the last time I summed up our week in a word, probably because our weeks since last August have been changeable and, if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you’ll know that routine and planning is key when living with autism. This week though, a word has shone out! It […]

Listening – My #WOTW

By | January 12, 2018

We’ve experienced the pluses and minuses of Doctors listening this week, the first has made me hopeful, the second a bit despairing. Yesterday saw D’s annual check-up at the paediatric department where she was formally diagnosed with autism and related issues at age 4.5. She’s now 13 so very used to the environment of a […]

Music – My #WOTW

By | December 14, 2017

I know, I haven’t summed up our week in a while, I’ll blame it on “stuff” that I haven’t wanted to blog about yet, but… This week’s word just has to be Music! On Monday we attended D’s SN school Carol Concert, it’s always a really fantastic event, with a local brass band accompanying our […]

One Year On 

By | October 12, 2017

I didn’t realise it was a year today since my first both-feet operation, hasn’t it flown by? And, of course, when I did remember, I wondered how I should feel about it, bearing in mind it wasn’t a successful procedure and I’m currently 7 weeks post-op from the first remedial one in my right foot. […]

Thankful – My #WOTW and Weeks 2-3 Post-Op

By | September 8, 2017

I’m updating my weeks 2 and 3 #scarfeet post-op and including my Word Of The Week because they would all say the same: I’m Thankful (my Word Of The Week) very much so. Both D and T returned to school this week, both facing new challenges. For D, it was the prospect of her moving […]

Laughter – This Week’s #WOTW

By | September 1, 2017

I most definitely agree with that image this week, in fact it’s the word that sums up our week. Laughter has kept me going through trying to find the right pain relief for my post-op foot.  I’ve found that any tablets taken in the afternoon/evening keep me awake at night with an incredibly wired brain, so I’m […]

Rugby – Our #WOTW 

By | August 18, 2017

It’s an unexpected word to sum up our week today, not a word I’d thought I’d use, being a pre-dominantly footie (well 50% anyway) family. You might have thought my word would be hospital as I had a quite lengthy pre-op on Tuesday and because the first of my rectifying feet operations is on Monday, or Music as D […]

Annoyed – My #WOTW 

By | July 20, 2017

If you regularly read my blogs, you’ll know I’m a “glass half full” J even when my #scarfeet are at their peak of achiness and I’m just worn down by “stuff” but not this week, I’m Annoyed. Extremely annoyed and disappointed in T’s school, which isn’t an ideal way to be during the last week […]

Tired – My #WOTW and 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 14, 2017

Oh my one word to sum up our week is easy this week: The children are blooming exhausted as the end of term approaches. D has found it particularly tricky, we’ve had a few tears this week.  Last week was a mega busy one with Proms Week and this week has seen her go off-site with school […]

Music – My #WOTW – and 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 7, 2017

It’s been super-easy to choose my one word to sum up our week this week: How could it be anything else? This week has been Proms Week in D’s SN week and it is an all-day, all week event with class performances, music club performances and invitations to local schools to participate. It’s something that […]
