The Spotty Headband #MusicMonday #WhatsTheStory

By | May 26, 2014

D is rather partial to headbands, tiaras, ribbons, clips in her hair, anything girlie. For me they’re a useful “get that fringe out of the way too”. They all very used at school to seeing D bounce in in the mornings looking a bit like a circa-1980’s Madonna with her leggings, tutu skirts, bracelets and […]

The Concert #MagicMoments #WhatsTheStory

By | May 18, 2014

When I was growing up “in the olden days” as D refers to them (ha! bless her) there wasn’t the music channels or access to music artists that there is now. There was one music show a week – Top Of The Pops – and a few magazines. I always used to buy Smash Hits, […]

Handwriting – Thurs 1st May 2014

By | May 1, 2014

I am incredibly proud of D this evening and I wanted to share why. Regular readers of my posts will know that, although she is an absolute whizz with crafting, also anything that involves hand-to-eye co-ordination and her ipad, she finds handwriting extremely challenging. I have always felt that D may have dyspraxia, she displays […]

The Pink Dress #MagicMoments #WhatsTheStory

By | April 27, 2014

When we booked D’s birthday party, she had a couple of stipulations: she preferred a “Glow In The Dark” room for the food (exciting!!) and she wanted to “look like a princess or mermaid”. D will be 10 in less than a month (10? The time has just whizzed by) and the pink/princess/girlie phase that […]

Reflecting and looking ahead plus A Poem For Matthew Jnr #ThisIsAutism

By | April 6, 2014

I realised today that we’ll have been in our home 10 years tomorrow. A lot has happened in the last 10 years. I mentioned here what a race it was to move in before D arrived, my ever-growing belly was waiting for no-one! D was born in our bedroom six weeks after we moved, T […]

By | February 3, 2014

Today (post scheduled on Sunday) we were looking at the calendar and working out how long it is to the February half term. The answer is not long. As I explained to D, it’s two Mondays, two Tuesdays etc etc….. I asked D what she’d like to do at half term, her instant answer was […]

Two bookends and a T #WhatsTheStory #MagicMoments

By | January 27, 2014

Life has a great deal of uncertainties in it, but also some certainty too. There is a beginning and an end. It’s what we do in the middle bit that counts. The picture above was taken just over a week ago, three generations of men I care about very deeply. A son, his father and […]

Bounce! #MagicMoments #WhatsTheStory

By | January 20, 2014

As I’ve mentioned in my Word Of The Week post, I’ve had a bit of a busy week last week, but a fruitful one. It’s been mostly spent in the garden, getting extremely muddy.. ..and decluttering in preparation for Spring and hopefully some better weather. One of my goals was to take down our 13ft […]

A Stick-y Cuddle!

By | January 13, 2014

I published a post a while ago about The Tale Of Two Kitties, our cat sisters who are firmly ensconced in our family. They are both individual personalities: Bitsey, the larger cat has aspirations to be a guard dog and will protect her territory whilst I’m out on a school run. Her fur will rise […]
