Naivety

I always thought I knew enough about disabilities. I have always been around disabilities somehow, the invisible to the eye disabilities all the way through to disabilities which are extremely visible. I may not have known all the names for all the disabilities but I thought I was quite knowledgable about the fact there are…

Dribble Bubbs Review

For the last couple of months I have been trialling the Dribble Bubbs bed sheets and onesies. All I can say is wow. MO still sometimes struggles with setting himself during the day and night. This from researching and talking to other parents of Autistic children, is quite a common thing. I’ve been searching for…

Christmas Time!

Last Christmas was BBGs first Christmas time. We were so excited to celebrate as a family of 6, I’d brought a different outfit and pj set for each day of the week of Christmas back in early November. I had excitedly brought Christmas presents all the way back in September/October. Then our world changed. We…

My answer to a vile person

I get quite a few messages to say all sorts of encouragement and people sharing their stories. All are just comments that let you know there are still decent human beings in the world. This week my email pinged and I had another message come through, yet this one showed me how negative some people…

Next Steps for our SWAN

As readers of my social media pages may have seen we were called up to GOSH Thursday and we weren’t really sure why. We knew it wouldn’t be for a diagnosis as all the tests had come back negative and there’s no way the 100k Genome project would have an answer within 2 weeks of…

Not a Match Made in Heaven

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I absolutely love Christmas; the food, the presents and the decorations. The general joy that most people have. The giving and general generosity. To MO it is one of the worst times of year. Our house doesn’t have any sparkles, our tree is decorated with wool and…

I haven’t blogged for a while…

I haven’t really blogged for a while… my mind just hasn’t been in the right place for it. Other than physically being busy, with moving house, appointments, run up to Christmas and many other things. Mentally and emotionally I’ve had nothing in me. It’s really stopped me wanting to write as I didn’t know what…

Diary Zapp Review

I used to love scrap booking when I was younger and it brings back so many happy memories. I tried to get the children involved however although tickets and maps are usually accessible, we are unfortunately living in the modern digital age, where all my photos are on the cloud and I rarely print any…
