W28: Webruary Reviewed

Well here we are at the end of Webruary, my friends. One month of daily posts, to see if I could stay disciplined enough to write every day, to discover if I had enough material to produce a post every day, to determine if anyone was interested in reading what I published and, of course, to...

W27: Bikeability/The Room of Heroism

Thomas received his cycling certificate today. Another certificate for the Wall of Fame in the Room of Heroism. Yes, he really calls his bedroom the Room of Heroism. This is a new thing; he invented the name last week after he went to the Dental Hospital. That evening he brought his toys downstairs to award... Continue Reading →

W26: His Lordship Pays a Visit

Tom went to his grandparents' today. He goes pretty much every Sunday and I get a blissful six hours or so to myself. Today I used the time productively, tidying and cleaning the house and catching up on laundry. The cold that was threatening to take hold has not yet done so, I had a... Continue Reading →

W25: Obiter Dicta

Today's post will be a non-post. Catching a cold, head all fuzzy, body shivery. Nothing report worthy happened and now it's late and my brain went to bed already, so nothing of worth shall be created today. I can report we had another Milkshake Morning this morning, (Milkshake Mornings) complete with Tom's farts and cold feet... Continue Reading →

It was another entry of the list of things he wasn't yet ready to do and, with him being our first and only child  (never... Continue Reading →

W23: Wheely Wonderful

Guess who learned to ride his bike? Yes, that's right. His Lordship himself! He learned not only to pedal forwards but to ride without stabilisers. They put him on a two-wheeled bike from the start and within a few minutes he'd mastered the art of pedalling forwards and balancing and he was away. For a... Continue Reading →

W22: Cycling Proficiency Training

Thomas has cycling proficiency training tomorrow and Friday. Which would be awesome apart from the fact that he can't ride a bike. He never mastered the art of pedalling forwards, he could only pedal backwards. I got back ache so many times manually moving his feet to help him feel what pedalling forward was like...

W21: People Didn’t Change, The World Did

I have a theory that autism is being diagnosed in such large numbers these days because society has changed and made being slightly different less acceptable. I believe autism has always been with us but once there was a place for people who were "loners" or "rigid thinkers" and nowadays we ask everyone to confirm to a... Continue Reading →

W20: The Dental Hospital 

Son went to the dental hospital today. He had never been before and he was very anxious that he would be put in an MRI scanner with loud clicks and noises, or have his teeth removed. He doesn't like having to lie in the chair as it is raised and lowered until he is lying... Continue Reading →
