Octopus soup !

Last night I was invited * to see octopus soup at New Theatre Cardiff. It was surprisingly busy for an opening night I did notice that the audience seemed of a more mature age. The actors were well known Nick Hancock ( They think it's all over) who plays Seymour ,...

Autism and emotions.

As much as the changes the last week has effected Z, these have been mentioned on Facebook and me making some sort of humour out of it it's kind of gone like this. Last week Z was quiet at home not quiet himself. Thursday I learned his teacher was off sick. That...

Fights and struggles.

When I hear or read other stories about families either at start of their autism journey or even many years in one thing always sticks out. Fights and struggles. Fighting for your child's rights, wants and needs. Struggling for people to accept autism, or if they...

Friendships

Friends they are funny little things right! Autism and friends are even funnier. I've said many times I have a great group of friends. Some enter quickly some leave just as fast! Those are just mine! The ones that stay around are the good ones. Even now at 35 I'm...

It's that time again, my A-Z of autism for autism awareness week. Each year I've done this I never look back to see what's the same or not until after I've written them. 2016 2017 2018 And now 2019 A - Admire. I admire the sheer determination of Z on a daily basis. B...

Z's words are getting there, I couldn't say how many words he knows because that's loads. I couldn't say how many words he'll use to communicate because these vary with different people. He'll do things for me that he won't do for anyone else, yet There's things he'll...

15 years gone by.

15 years ago I remember like it was yesterday, eating doughnuts and drinking coffee in Clavier waiting on our children to come back from ski school.  The one day I left my phones behind, the one day there was no post to take back to the hotel to collect my phone even...

No awareness of danger.

Tonight I learnt that Z at six still has no awareness of danger. None at all.  Leaving McDonald’s he has an meltdown of epic proportions. He was out of his seat, he was on the parcel shelf, he was attempting to get into the front of the car.  I stopped when it was...

Four years ago

Four years ago when I first started my blog, I can look back and see how far we've come. One of my first posts was about what school we were putting Z in. That was was a headache in itself. Of course we choose sen school and know we made the right decision, I've never...

Day at Porthcawl in half term.

It's not often in February half term you have beach weather, but to be fair we've been on the beach in the cold before. With our trusted sidekicks J and E we meet up with T and gang and head to Trecco bay for the day. First stop the beach, wellies and a jacket, when Z...
