So I'm back after a little fortnight away from the computer. It was a well needed rest from writing, especially with all that was going on with our boy. As I've mentioned numerous times before my son was born very premature and so has several health issues, but as well as that we are currently … Continue reading Prematurity & Autism – A Health Update
As I write this in my exhausted state, I ponder over the events of the last week. There are ongoing issues within our family that have been a constant worry and to be frank, a hell of a lot of stress for months now and so that's always in the back of your head.

It did in fact end up a lot more dramatic than that. We met with Dr Lynas, a lovely older lady who has been working in this … Continue reading The Autism Diagnosis Process – Meeting with our Community Paediatrician
This weeks theme is inspired by mine and my family's circumstances just now... It's HOPE!
So it's Friday and this has been the most hellish week ever. We had a flood about 2 months ago and we only just had our new flooring fitted yesterday. Our house has been a pigsty for weeks and it's only now getting back to looking semi-presentable. It got me thinking about why we obsess … Continue reading Thoughts Of The Day
Initially I thought I would share my Top 5 accounts with you all, but when I tried to narrow it down to just 5 I failed... Miserably. My Instagram feed is a lot like my taste in music... Very eclectic... Or crazily varied if you prefer. I have so many different interests and Instagram is … Continue reading My Favourite Instagram Accounts
Ok so I know it's only October, but having kids means you have to step up your organisation skills, and despite previously being a last-minute-shopper, I thought I would get a head start this year, saving myself the annual festive stress. This is where it gets tricky. My boy has a bedroom, full of lovely, … Continue reading Christmas Gift Ideas for a Sensory Challenged Child
Do you ever drift off in a daydream and wonder how different your life might be if, say you had taken that job all those years ago... not met your partner... studied a different subject at uni... or even won the lottery???
