Hopes and dreams

In a few weeks you'll be six. This time six years ago I had dreams and expectations one big one was going to express and you were going to be breastfed. This time five years ago you were signed up to school. This time four years ago I was still expecting you to do...

Rainman

I was invited * last night to see Rainman at New Theatre Cardiff.  When Z was diagnosed a few people told me he’ll be like rainman, this didn’t make any sense because of course I’ve never seen the film! All I knew was a man found out he had a autistic brother. The...

I can read !

There's many videos over on my Facebook page showing Z reading. These have normally been one word at a time. During the holidays Z went with a friend, he broke her tortoise ornament in the garden alongside her dragon! When we got home I wrote an apology and he read...

Week one complete!

Week one of school complete! Ok yes I know we only done two days but week one is still over. Hopefully as it's a long term Z will settle, Wednesday evening he had heard us mention school I think and was up last night he was crying at 12, still in his bed, I saw 1,2...

First day at school

Today you head into what would be year one. I see pictures of excited children walking into school with their friends and for a brief second the 'you are different' moment hits. It's not for long, you go back to a place you love, you have your friends in your own...

Can it not be the end of the summer please!

Back in July I set a little challenge this summer holidays I wanted to achieve things, go places, have laughs and make memories. A few months back I didn’t know what I’d be able to do or not do, when I knew we could do anything I wanted I made my My six weeks...

A letter to Z’s teacher 2018

The last official day of the school holidays. Next week Z returns to school. He'll return to a new teacher. Its getting easier each year for me! I think Z just goes with the flow. Of course I always worry, new class new teacher and a child that can't tell me how his...

West Midlands Safari Park

We'd never been here before so decided to give it ago, I was a little gutted after I'd booked to find that I could have used my Tesco clubcard vouchers ! Off we set with not knowing what to expect after our 4am wake up.. I just just knew there were animals and rides....

Folly Farm with friends

As part of my challenges I set this summer a Zoo was on my list. We visited Folly farm, I know Z enjoys it so a few of us all went. It was a disaster from the start! Z had a full on meltdown going in because it's all new since we were there last. All he wanted to do...

Shiremoor Adventure Park

When we were visiting my sister she said take a look and see what you fancy, that's when I said about the boat ride. We were sitting there one day and she said oh I know of a place Z will love, it has random opening hours as it's a community run place, we had around...
