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…

Worry Plaque Review

MO gets extremely anxious because of his autism. If things aren’t exactly right or if our routine changes at all, MO can’t handle it. His stims are on overdrive, he can’t calm down and he is just generally can’t control his anxiety.   So when I was offered the Irish Fairy Door Company’s Worry Plaque…

Anxiety is so high

This last couple of weeks I have felt the lest motivated ever!  I honestly think it’s all down to anxiety about Thursdays hospital appointment at Great Ormond Street.  Last time we went to see this particular consultant (we have a couple up there), we were given a list of numbers for therapists and councillors and…

It’s the end of October already!  Where has that month gone.  I thought I’d do a little catch up blog, just so everyone knows what’s roughly going on in our life.  BG is now year 4! She is just amazing and I can not credit her enough at what a massive help she is to…

An Unexpected Adventure to Hospital

This morning my alarm woke me up at 6.30. I stretched my arms and legs and dragged myself into BBGs nursery. She had slept through the night and for anyone who breast feeds you will understand the ache I was feeling, plus BBG never sleeps through the night.  Bleary eyed I bent down and scooped…

Move day is approaching

We are moving house! So as MO has autism you can understand why I’ve been slightly quiet on here for a while.  We hired a skip and have been clearing away a lot of things. I can’t believe how much stuff a house can hold without even realising! However this has really had an impact…

Educational Worksheets

I was recently approached by Education.com to review their educational worksheets. I chose to do the Autumn Subtraction Worksheet with MO. This was perfect and so simple to use that MO once we explained how to use the sheet, sat and worked through everything by himself. It gave him independence and completely boosted his self…
