  • The A-Z of me

    I enjoy meme's both from a reading-other-people's answers and a what-would-I-say view point. Recently one popped into my email inbox from Donna at MummyCentral and it looked like it might be fun to join in with. No obligation for anyone else to join in,... Read more

  • A Rant for Friday - Hacked!

    My email got hacked overnight and since 4am this morning I've been receiving messages of non-delivery - the first indication I'd been hacked. I never click on dodgy-looking links in DMs or emails, a regular amount of email goes to "Junk" and "Junk" it... Read more

  • Coping strategies...not "growing out of Autism"

    Sometimes an article is published that you read and think "did anyone actually research this properly?" and "oh dear, this really isn't going to help". Yesterday was such a time. An article published by BBC Health Children may "outgrow" Autism. (Click... Read more

  • It's Good To Talk...

    Or tweet, text, blog, connect on Facebook ... The death of Jacintha Saldanha was a shocking end to a "prank", even more so was the way some elements of social media reacted to the news. "It's only a mistake at work" said one tweet. Not many people can... Read more

  • Twitter and how it's helped me - one year on

    I can't remember the exact date I joined Twitter but it was sometime after Children In Need last year (2011). My sister-in-law (bless her) was my first follower and up until then, I had only pottered around on it. Had a look to see what my favourite writer... Read more

  • Spam, ham and rotten eggs

    I try to clear out my "spam" folder at least once a week, it's usually quite an experience. Comments which have nothing to do with what I've written about, links to all manner of "dodgy" sites - I never click on them, just wonder occasionally how they've... Read more

  • Realising something from my doodles

    For as long as I can remember I've doodled the same sorts of things. Treble clefs have always been a favourite. I could fill a whole page with them. Large ones, small ones, some with very elaborate swirls, others quite small and simple. We have a blackboard... Read more

  • Looking beyond the outer shell...

    I had a little jaunt into town today, forgetting it was....*drumroll please* new iPhone release day so there were hundreds of people queuing outside the Apple store. They're probably still there now. At least there is a Starbucks kiosk nearby for refreshments,... Read more

  • You're a lucky little girl....

    I was always told this from an early age...literally had it drummed into me. I was born six weeks premature, which would be a worry these days, let alone then. A child born on the same day as me, with a similar prematurity, was found to be brain-damaged.... Read more

  • Squabbles & a kind moment

    Grrr, this book causes squabbles amongst T and D: It shouldn't do, but it does. T likes to take it with him when we go out, D will see it, want to read it and that's when the squabbling starts. At home, she'll ask if she can start reading it, he'll begrudging... Read more
