  • The Earrings #SSAmazingAchievements

    A couple of years ago, in the summer holidays, D decided she'd like her ears pierced. It wasn't something to be considered lightly as her stranger anxieties and sensory issues meant that we may not even get into the appointment. I also didn't want her... Read more

    D has had (in her words) "the best day", it's involved some crafting, nature and the settings on her iPad. Me, I seem to have a headcold, one of those horrible sound-gets-amplified-type-ones. So, the discovery of the various sounds in settings has been..interesting.... Read more
