Hever Castle has for quite some time been on my wish list of places I’d like us to visit. Last week it finally came true, and it turned out to be a truly magical experience! I’m sure the castle and gardens are amazing at any time of the year, but now during the Christmas period … More Days Out In The South East: Christmas Time At Hever Castle!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t been posting very much here during November. I posted about this on our social media about a week ago, but it’s just as relevant for here on the blog, so I feel I should write about it here as well. Plus this also gives me an … More Getting The Balance Right…?
Yesterday was World Mental Health Day, and late in the evening, as I was fretting over wanting to write two different posts linked to mental health and one about something else, with very little time left of the day, I decided to allow myself to fail. I completed a post on our instagram, and then … More “Please Don’t Change”
Welcome to part two of our mini-series on sensory processing differences, where as promised in part I, I’ll explain a little bit about the three lesser known senses: the vestibular system, proprioception and interoception. (If you missed part one, you can find it here.) Firstly, just a few short words on terminology. I’m using the … More Our Life With Sensory Processing Disorder – Part II

TURN, TURN, TURN… “To everything (turn, turn, turn) There is a season (turn, … More “Turn, Turn, Turn…” – Noticing Time & Change
Every Saturday evening, I make pizza together with our son Penguin (that’s his nickname by the way, in case you’re new to our blog). On every other evening of the week there are two different meals served at our house, as Penguin will only really eat a couple of different meals other than pizza, and … More Saturday Night Is (Always) Pizza Night!
Today is the First of October, and my online world is full of reminders that today is indeed a New Month. There are shiny new ‘challenges’ to join in with on instagram, and as we look ahead, October seems to be glowing with promises of cosy autumnal moments. We’ll be surrounded by the golden hues … More October… New Month, New Beginnings?
In case you’re new to our blog: Our posts about baking are not only about the recipes, but also very much about the process of baking together with our son who’s autistic, non-verbal, and has develomental differences. I feel that baking is a great activity for us to enjoy together, and I hope that sharing … More Baking Together: Blueberry Muffins with a Touch of Citrus
(The post below started it’s life as an instagram post, but social media has such a short shelf life in general, and I feel that these thoughts deserve a somewhat more permanent place. So here it is, ever so slightly edited, as a blog post.) I would have loved to be asleep right now, but … More What If I Fail My Disabled Child…?
