  • Sunday 30th September - blog fest!!

    Apologies that this is the fourth post of the day, but before you run away screaming: one was a "Silent Sunday"; one a product review that should have gone up Friday but, due to Follow Fridays, timelines are completely taken up and the other I was pleased... Read more

  • Blogging tips

  • Saturday 29th September - a new arts and crafts experience

    After the emotion-fest that was yesterday (bless her) D needed a good day today and, on the whole, that's what we've had. We tried out an arts and crafts workshop organised by Mencap this morning. D loved it - as I thought she would. It's a book-in-advance... Read more

  • Friday 28th September - not the best day..

  • Wednesday 26th September - a return to routine but "cry me a river"

    I'm going to be honest...I didn't feel like doing this tonight and wasn't going to, until I decided that, realistically I've had worse days than today and it's guaranteed that I will do in the future. After days of playing telephone-tennis with our GP... Read more

  • Tuesday 25th September - Happy Birthday Mr Bluecrisps

    Yes, my Mr Bluecrisps' birthday today aka Hubbie. Nicknamed that as my twitter name used to be "Bluecrisps", see my "About" post or "Mr Bluecrisps" post for more info. D had a much better night but still awake a lot and Spilly Spoon was needed again 😳,... Read more
