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...

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 →

W2.7: Dirt Magnet

My son is a dirt magnet. Perhaps he has dyspraxia because he can't eat without covering himself in food or pour a drink without spilling it, or walk without finding a puddle of mud to splash onto his trousers and shoes, or run without slipping and falling into mud. When he brushes his teeth he... Continue Reading →

W2.3: A Wicked Sense of Humour

My son has a wicked sense of humour. By wicked I mean he enjoys the discomfort of others and he loves watching people get angry or surprised, so long as they are not angry at him. For a boy who doesn't like surprises or loud noises himself, he's quite happy to make me squeal when... Continue Reading →

W2.2: The Next Big Thing

Tom has discovered prank videos on YouTube. This is making me nervous. I have visions of clingfilm over the toilet bowl, apple-pie beds and buckets of water balanced precariously over door frames. Luckily for me things have progressed since the practical joke books of my childhood. Pranks on YouTube have evolved and become more elaborate... Continue Reading →

W2.1: “So You Should Be”

Today my son has been to school, crossed over the road on his own on his way there and back, sauntered home in his PE kit, chucked his coat and bags on the kitchen table, kicked off his trainers (sneakers) and left them lying on the kitchen floor and set about playing the Sega Megadrive...
