Christmas Day in an autism house

I kept telling Z it's Tuesday tomorrow meaning he thought it was school, 8.30 he's getting up! He didn't open a present he wouldn't open anything and took a book upstairs. I set up his marble run he loved his one last year, I stupidly thought a wooden one would be...

End of term one

Wow it only felt like yesterday I was writing this and we've already done 16 weeks in this class. So far this term I've seen a real improvement in Z's speech, he's really trying hard. Let's hope he'll get some speech therapy when he's assessed in January! As with any...

2018 a year of less plastic.

So in January a full 11 months ago I decided to go on my own less plastic journey. I swapped simple stuff first, Remembering to take my own bags and not buying a 5p one. Bought myself a keep cup so I didn't have to buy a coffee, as it is I've not used it in a shop for...

Beauty and the Beast Christmas Pantomime

We were invited * to the press release of Beauty and the Beast at Cardiff's New Theatre. This was my first panto, I must have gone to see one when I was younger but honestly I can't remember it. I took along my husband just incase Z needed to leave. I was a little...

Words and Using in context.

I finally heard my 6 year old say ' I love you'. Z's speech has started creeping in and he's doing well, it's mostly requesting. So he'll say 'toilet, or toilet time' when obviously he needs the toilet. There's things I know he can say like the days of the week and...

2018 – A look back through the year.

Wow, you sure went fast. We had laughs, we had tears most importantly we made memories good and bad. We we fortunate to not loose anybody, other that our two little embryos, we made it through the year with all our family. I learnt a lot about myself, I learnt a lot...

Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland

We have been to Cardiff's Winter wonderland for the last three years, this year I was so excited to be invited* on opening night. This year there's no big wheel, thankfully as Z tries to get me in every year! But we were greeted to the Drop Tower, standing at 90m I...

No more pull ups!

So in April we started to toilet train Z, at one point I wanted to cry and quit, but we continued. When we finally mastered the art of peeing into the toilet we had to get the poo too. Disaster. In June I was buying a new mattress for my bed, as Z used poo as paint...

Bedroom art with Edu prints plus posters

When I got offered to review * some posters from Edu prints plus I jumped at the chance after looking at their website. There's so many lovely posters to choose from it was really difficult to choose just three! I know Z can read, maybe he won't always say things out...

Rock Of Ages

I was invited * to see the opening night of Rock Of Ages last night in New Theatre Cardiff. Off I went again not knowing what to expect. All I knew that it was a love story. Sitting in the audience waiting, I was taken back to drunken nights in my hours playing rock...

Term one complete

I can't believe we've finished the first term back already. Next term will be the Christmas concert!! We don't have parents evening until we go back after half term, but I'm hoping that Z is doing ok in his new class. He's always happy to go in maybe not so happy...

Stickman Review

Today we were given * tickets to go and review stickman at New Theatre Cardiff. I'd checked with the school to see if I could collect him and drop him back off and it was fine. So off we went for a little birthday treat! He knew where we were going as he was so...
