  • Too shy .. Thurs 28.02.2013

    Last day of February today, spring is on the way. Our school run journeys are now taken over by crocus and snowdrop spotting and daisy picking. In addition, there are stones of various shapes and sizes to be admired and little things that other people... Read more

  • Collin Brewer - unbelievable comments in the 21st Century

    I can't lie, parenting a special needs child or children is challenging and exhausting at times. This is especially so in the case of a child with a mental health disability, one that cannot be seen. I must add that I have total and unreserved admiration... Read more

  • Highs and lows Weds 27.02.2013

    I need to say a MEGA thank you for all the RTs of the #tescomumoftheyear Anna Kennedy post. She's a very deserving winner and the more publicity the better for this fab event being televised on Mothers Day. There is also an autism book giveaway on the... Read more

  • Chocolate always helps... Monday 25.02.2013

    No, not me. I haven't gone completely off the rails with the diet ... yet. It's always tempting though, especially with the somewhat stressful life that is autism parenting. Anyway, enough about me! Today has been a GOOD day from start to finish and there... Read more

  • Music Monday "500 Miles" by The Proclaimers

    Today's Music Monday is a "get up, get on with it" song. A bit of motivation too. It's also one that D sings in music at school. I can't imagine how cute that must look (and sound), 8 SN children stomping away to this song! Here is the official video... Read more

  • A squash and a squeeze Sun 24.02.2013

    Taking tonight's title from the above (great) book, that's how our day has felt. D has been very, very anxious about school today right from the moment she woke up. I'm normally greeted by an excited "Mumma!" and a huge squishy hug, today my girl was... Read more
