Almost a week of this stupid bug, kids with anxiety so high that even just trying to get to breakfast is an exhausting battle, and having to get through the trauma of the nights (nightmares really high again for one child, crying/defending self in sleep, the other just flat out refusing sleep or help). … Continue reading I don’t want to mum today.

30 Days Wild – Day 23
Well, it was a bit hard to take in nature and wildlife yesterday, as we spent a large majority of our day on motorways and major A roads. Caitlin has jumped from being just under 17kg to 18.7kg in amongst this house move drama. This means that she's too heavy for her car seat harness, … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 23
30 Days Wild – Day 22
Yesterday was one of those awful days where nothing seems to go right, a chain of one after the other incidents leaves you feeling at a loss... and it was only 9:45 by this point - culminating in me swallowing a lip bar, which really was the tip of the iceberg. We had had wet … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 22
30 Days Wild – Day 21
"Our birds". It's kind of strange, having only owned our new house for only 2 months, actually 2 nights away means we really appreciated the sound of being woken by "our birds". I don't mean, we have birds as pets... we don't. I mean the birds that visit our back garden (we really should make … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 21
Please stop using your children as weapons.
I have been biting my tongue on this subject for freaking ages. But you know what, in the last month alone 4 people close to me have been in the middle of these type of scenarios and frankly it's frustrating the absolute hell out of me. Whether you decide to have a child with someone, … Continue reading Please stop using your children as weapons.
30 Days Wild – Day 20
A long journey home through country lanes today, so much wild beauty to be seen. But the best part of the day was the rain... it had been dry enough for there to be some distinct petrichor in the air. One of my favorite smells of all time, second not even to freshly cut grass … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 20
30 Days Wild – Day 19
Woken by a cockerel - what more is there to say? A beautiful day in the countryside, surrounded by bugs and birds, farm animals and plant life. Lots of wild to take in
30 Days Wild – Day 18
First day of arrival at camp. First impressions for everyone was how breathtaking it was to be completely immersed in greenery. Nothing but valley grassed field-land and trees. Beautiful. Not to mention the reminder of the power of mother nature - listening to the wind whip up the side of the tent. Fierce, furious and … Continue reading 30 Days Wild – Day 18
30 Days Wild – Day 17
So retrospectively as camp hindered ability to post. Sunday was spent prepping for camp, and in the interim... rescuing various bugs back to the freedom of the garden.
Well, we have had the most amazing time at camp. Exhausting but amazing. We had gone because the children needed to have SAI (Sensory Attachment Intervention) assessments done. These are assessments which will go beyond a standard Occupational Therapist assessment and tap into specialist attachment knowledge to try and identify which areas flagged are likely … Continue reading Therapy Camp
