A New Beginning… Life with Hyperlexia

Hello, it’s me – that girl that blogged about 2 years ago before the spawn of Satan entered my life. Just kidding!

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.

The GFCF Diet – ”The Autism Diet”

Previously, I mentioned that we had changed Aidan’s diet in the past few months. I came across the GFCF diet purely by accident and decided to give it a go. It is a struggle to find too many resources on the GFCF lifestyle other than a handful of websites. So, I decided to talk a little bit about it on…

Playroom Pinspiration

I think everyone turns to Pinterest when looking for decor ideas (or new hairstyles/baking/makeup/crafts/everything else). Many lost hours have been spent in the never-ending hole of house goals. I do put a lot of effort into one room though – the boy’s playroom. I tend to lean towards the fun and colourful designs. Here are some of the photos in my Playroom…
