Dear old man in Tesco

Dear old man in Tesco, I didn't want to go shopping today, I had to. We'd just returned from our holidays yesterday and needed a few essentials, things in our house that we can't be without but many families probably don't even need. My daughter was singing from the...

Emotional school run

Today I almost had a lip wobbling moment on the school run. Every night when I pick Billy up from school, I walk through the gates, I make my way to one of the benches and I sit and wait for him. The playground is usually pretty quiet as parents pick up their other...

I love Costa even more now!

Guess who just got an email from her very favourite place in the world! Me! I emailed the CEO at Costa yesterday to tell him I love Costa more than life. I told him Costa keeps me sane on this journey and that it is my second home. I did not tell him that I worship...

Scarlet’s little orphans and boobie bears

Scarlet's little orphans and boobie bears I want to tell you about an amazing lady, my friend Helen. Helen is actually my grandparents' goddaughter and I've known her my whole life (30 cough cough something years). Not only is Helen a very talented photographer who...

ICE seatbelt covers (in case of emergency)

When you have a child with any disability you think about things that other people don’t have to worry about, things that actually panic you and make your heart physically ache. One of these things for me was what would happen if I had an accident with the kids in the...

Conditioning Spray

Osmo Deep Moisture Dual Action Miracle Repair Spray I've seen so many people struggling with their child's hair recently. We all know that children on the spectrum can have huge issues around their hair and I regularly write about Islas hair struggles....

Review time! So the other day because I think a lot of you guys, I dragged my snotty, coughing, sorry backside out of the house and over to Costa coffee to continue with my market research. I know I'm kind like that. I mused over the Christmas flavours for a while and...

Costa Honeycomb latte!

This is a public service broadcast. Today the hubs took me to Costa and we all know I love a bit of Costa action. I was just about to order a Black Forest hot chocolate when I did a u-turn and decided to order something else! Why? Because I've decided it's in the best...

Colchester Zoo

Went to Colchester zoo last week on what was an extremely hot day. Before our visit, I did what I always do and I looked at the zoo website. If you scroll right down to the disabled ticket prices it tells you disabled people and carers get in for half price because of...
