E-Book for You!

Yes, that’s right. I have a free EBook ready and waiting for you! In October I delivered my first public speech on happiness, mind management and personal development. Since then I have been working hard behind the scenes to create the book of the talk for those of you who can’t get to see me speak live.... Continue Reading →

To HCP or not to HCP…

I met with Tom's high school SENCO (special needs co-ordinator) yesterday to discuss his gradual transition into the "HCP" special needs unit at the school. The more I see of it and the more I talk to the staff there, the more I believe this is the best future for Thomas academically. As much as... Continue Reading →

Science, Scouts and Selfies

Hello again my lovelies. This has been quite a month and I have left you all hanging for far too long. I am so sorry! It's the same old story - so much life, so many exciting projects and somehow a month went by. If you're part of my Facebook Group then you'll see that there's been regular...

#Autism_Is

Happy Sunday. I hope this weekend finds you well. Once again it's a grey, rainy, cool day where I am. Spring just can't seem to get started! To brighten up your day, and to reflect the blog's new name, I thought I'd introduce a new series: #autism_is, discussing different aspects of autism. I'm going to... Continue Reading →

New Name and Facebook Group!

The blog has a new name! As I seek to grow the blog into more of a resource and information centre, it feels like the right time to introduce a new name that reflects the direction that the blog is taking. Don't worry, there will still be plenty of the humorous, everyday content for us... Continue Reading →

Change Is the Only Constant

According to Heraclitus of Ephesus (c500 BE), life is flux, everything changes and "no man ever steps in the same river twice" (Wikipedia page). I can attest it is certainly true for this family. During the annual review of Tom's educational needs provision I was offered a slight possibility that he could move into the... Continue Reading →

Revenge is a Sneeze Muffin

Tuesday last week Tom made chocolate muffins at school. In my usual grand style of leaving everything until the last minute and not paying attention to details I managed to not notice that we didn't have self-raising flour until the morning he was due to make the muffins. School had given us two weeks' notice... Continue Reading →

Happy Mother’s Day

It's Mother's Day here in the UK. Now that Thomas has moved up from primary school he didn't make a card this year. I rather missed the glittery, tissue papery, coloured-outside-the-lines, half-illegible offering. Another sign of the passing away of his younger years. Ah, nostalgia. As he has not yet progressed to going out on... Continue Reading →
