  • Saturday 30th June

    Our day didn't begin well. It was a little bit out of routine and D didn't handle it well, very over-sensitive for parts of the morning, very non-negotiable until...she saw the butterflies! Yep, we have butterflies, finally (if you didn't see yesterday's... Read more

  • Friday 29th June

    We've had a really good day today, I think D is very relaxed now that all the sports day preparation and practice is over and normal routine is back at school. We stopped off at the playground after dropping T off at his school, D definitely has Hubbie's... Read more

    D has had another brilliant day, buoyed on (I think) by yesterday. Of course if she hadn't got her medal(s) it may have been a different story, but it wasn't so...*big grin*. She walked about half-way to school and was delighted to be accosted by a cat... Read more

    The day of D's sports day and how wonderful it has been 😃👍 It didn't start off that way - naturally, thanks autism - as she was very anxious about sports day and it took her TA, plus her teacher to get her into school. I had a "cunning plan" to have Bunny... Read more

  • Tuesday 26th June

    Another huff-worthy day in parts, I'm afraid. The school run this morning was Horrible, with a definite capital H. D started off well with her walking but got scared by these two children who always cycle too close to her, so back to the sanctuary of... Read more

    Huff, huff, huff. Yes that's me tonight. The day started off really well. D walked to T's school, then had a spell in the buggy, then walked into her school. She knew I had to then walk back to T's school for his sports day so went in very well, bless... Read more

    Thanks for all your RTs of my "it's a matter of taste..." blog. I wasn't going to name names but I think the majority of you who RTd know who these "comedians" are, taking cheap digs at those who can't answer back. On with our day: Haircuts time for T... Read more

  • It's a matter of taste.....

    There has been a spate of comedians mocking disabled children in the last few months. Easy targets or is it something more? The red-top tabloids seem determined to name and shame benefit cheats, headlines screaming "lotto winners still claiming £xx benefits"... Read more

    Thanks very much for the RTs of my "Mr Pick" post, T loved seeing himself on screen and smiled away reading it, phew! No school runs (walks) today....nice, D has been happy doing her reading and playing with the craft box: As she has been into the "Manah... Read more

  • Mr Pick

    This is our nickname for T, our 9.5 year old "Pickle Jar", which was his nickname from about 6 months, then shortened to "Mr Pick". T is a bundle of football-loving & football team playing, book reading, hard-working pickle-ish-ness. He can also be incredibly... Read more
