Just as they were starting to get the hang of the routine a surprise hit - my health started to deteriorate. Having PCOS, I began to wonder if things had gone awry, again. To start the process of ruling things out, I took a pregnancy test. This pretty routine for me to do; when you … Continue reading An unexpected shock.
So, the pandemic had taken the wind out of my sails in terms of education provision for Caitlin. And thrown a spanner into the works in finding appropriate provision for Logan... But I had stepped up, I was more than capable for the task just a little ragged. Just as schools were readying to reopen … Continue reading The Gap: Part 4 – Summer – return to school 2020
So after the burnout of the education and lack of support crisis, which lead to home education and lack respite, the fight for an appropriate school provision (which had only just been won for Caitlin, but Logan's journey was still outstanding), and a safeguarding enquiry... We roll straight into a global pandemic! Wow! What can … Continue reading The Gap: Part 3 – PANDEMIC – no one panic!
So I'm back... A couple of posts over the coming days will explain my absence, some changes will be made to our blog and much news and updating necessary! Here we begin... With all the issues surrounding the children's needs (lack of sleep, high maintenance behaviour issues, needing constant 24 hour supervision, the fact there's … Continue reading The Gap… Part 1: Summer-Autumn 19

A Christmas decision Logan and Caitlin were very insistent that we have Christmas at home, which in some ways is great - it's so expensive to go away and not be able to join in with anything for Christmas, due to the sheer volume of other people being about. However, being at home for Christmas … Continue reading Christmas and New Year 2018
I am doing things in the background, I really am - there are several posts (well perhaps several hundred would be a more apt description). I don't hide that the last few months of the year are always a strain in this household, but this year has brought its own unique challenges. We are coming … Continue reading In the background
So, many reviews have been going up - I have been concentrating on getting those up to date - so it's clear we are up and about, though still not back at full energy capacity. However, whilst the summer holidays are in full swing, we are making use of friends and family being out and … Continue reading A new page… and our summer so far
As Granadad and Nanny were in Burnham-on-Sea having a holiday, we decided, it's really not all that far and we haven't seen them in a while so we should go visit them. The plan was for a beach day, but we chose to go down on a day when the weather was drab. Though for … Continue reading Review: Seaquarium Weston-Super-Mare
