This Time Last Year…

‘This time last year…’ is a phrase people often use. ‘This time last year we were on holidays’. ‘This time last year we bought a new car’. ‘This time last year was that hurricane that moved trampolines’. Well, for us this time last year was a weekend we will never forget. It is the one where our lives changed forever…

Aluminium Foil? | Cleaning Hack

I have made no secret of the fact that I kind of love cleaning (yes I’m weird.) Having two boys who are part wildebeest means that I come up against all sorts of messes. 9 times out of 10 it’s nothing an all-purpose cleaner and a cloth can’t tackle. However, the other day I decided to let Aidan paint –…

Weekly Schedule – Special Needs Parents

I remember when Aidan was younger thinking ‘is this it?’ like I would hear parents talking about constantly being in the car and running from one place to another transporting their kids.

Now that Aidan…

The Web this Week #1

As is beyond evident I have lost my blogging mojo as of late. It seems like just as I find my rhythm life throws me a curve ball. At the moment I seem to have found a routine which includes time awake without a small human pulling at me – success! Aidan has started in his playgroup two afternoons a week which gives…

What to watch on TV (and Netflix)

Lately, I have found myself spending more time away from my laptop and watching TV. I think my mind is so drained by the end of the day that I need to just vegetate and watch TV rather than try to do any blog work. With the recent end of winter programmes/ start of summer programme period I have found…

Makeitwithwords – Perfect ‘Instagram’ Gifts | Review

I am one of those people who loves to buy someone ‘the perfect gift’. At times like Christmas, I prefer giving presents than receiving them (I still love getting presents too – don’t get me wrong!) and can spend lots of time and money on each one. Last week the lovely people from Make It With Words emailed me to…

Life Update | Moving, Autism, Vegan

Life Update – surely every post a blogger writes is a life update of sorts? Anyway, considering I have been pretty absent on here especially in relation to our life and what has been going on I thought the best way to get back would be to catch you up to where we have been and what’s been happening. So…
