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 →
Oh dear. I owe you all an apology: Webruary 2.0 didn't happen. I knew the target of posting daily was an ambitious one but I was psyched to try and I did achieve it in 2017 so I thought I stood a good chance of accomplishing it again. Unfortunately I didn't. A combination of personal issues... Continue Reading →
No post yesterday, sorry peeps. I took a rest day and then spent the afternoon getting chores out the way so I could relax for the Super Bowl. I became a fan of (American) Football a few years ago through some American friends I used to play an online game with. I streamed a game... Continue Reading →
As today is the first of February it's an excellent opportunity to bring back Webruary. Inspiration has been hard to come by so far this year as life has settled into a routine. Tom is growing a little more mature every day and we are well into his first year in secondary school. There doesn't... Continue Reading →
Just a little plug for my other blog, The Loser's Guide to Happiness, in which I concentrate on personal development topics. I published a new post today in honour of the forthcoming New Year. You might like to check it out.
I made a new blog documenting my attempts to get happier. It's a departure from the style of this blog. Me without the mother side, I suppose you could say. I'm going to have some fun with it. I hope you like it too. The Loser's Guide To Happiness

However, life with autism does come with a generous dose of laughter and we all know that laughter is good for us. Therefore I am setting myself a... Continue Reading →
Warning: sweary words within. Possibly NSFW. Today I had another one of my small and regular epiphanies. I haven't written anything for over a month because I have been absorbed with a number of personal, "life" issues. Nothing terrible, nothing earth-shattering, but nevertheless matters that required thought and attention and occupied my mind. Issues such... Continue Reading →
Parenting an autistic child when you have no previous experience of autism can be confusing, stressful, tiring and lonely as there are few chances to talk to people who understand what this life is like. It drove me to create this blog, so I could share what I have learned and help others who may... Continue Reading →
My favourite blogger and author is back after a five month break with a new post. If you haven't visited the site, I'd recommend setting aside an hour and settling down with a cup of tea (and possibly some biscuits). Very funny, tender, affirming and occasionally heart breaking, it's quite a read: My Son's Not Rainman.
