Mondays by Mums - Organisation

Organisation is pretty important when you've got kids. I'm not a very well organised person, my boss and colleagues, parents, friends, children and partner will concur. My brain has a 50% functional memory at the best of times (completely unrelated to sherry or Stella consumption).

Living with Autism

Hello everyone,
You know, living with autism is hard, it's hard for the person with it, it's hard for their families and anyone else around them. It causes arguments, disputes sometimes even fights.

Mondays by Mums - Bit of a serious one!

At the weekend we attended a charity coffee morning at our local coffee house. It was to raise funds for New Greenhall school (where William attends), and an autism charity.

Being Social

Hello everyone,

So yesterday I went out and it was pretty good. I don't often spend time with people who are my own age.

The Dentist

Hello everyone,
For those that know me in person probably know that my single biggest fear is the dentist. It's not uncommon for even neurotypical people not on the spectrum to be scared of the dentist.

Mondays by Mums - Talking is Taken For Granted

William is a fascinating little thing. Whilst his speech is very poor for a 4yr old and is 99% Echolalia (he repeats phrases he's learned rather than talking), he loves babbling and making noise, its just a shame that we can't understand it.

Hello everyone,
So today was the first time I've been out socially in a couple of weeks and it was good. Even though socialising is hard for me it doesn't stop me.

Anything is Possible

Hello everyone,

So today I was reading through my statement that I got when I was 11. Then I found my evaluation done when I started high school and I was amazed.

Hello everyone,
I wasn't planning on writing a blog post today, in order to keep myself from burning out I'm only planning on writing three posts a week. But here we are, now something that is all too familiar with just happened.

Mondays by Mums

We've had a difficult few weeks with Williams temper. When your child can't tell you when he's hurt, unwell, tired, sad or miffed, its hard to help. It's wearing, emotionally and physically for all, and some days you just end up screeching at eachother because you really don't know what to do. Its like having that helpless newborn back, but this time 3 stone heavier and who likes to kick, throw punches and objects at you.

Realisation and some Information

Hello everyone,
Today I have had a realisation, I have spoke with a couple of readers, and read other blogs. Up to note I've been writing my posts in an overly complicated six step process that it designed only give the information I think you want to hear. Now this does produce well written posts but it also means I'm spending so much of my time on writing posts they there's no enjoyment in it for me. I have discovered that isn't the way I should be doing things, I think you all would prefer I enjoyed writing even if it was of a slightly lower quality. Also I have open up comments to all openID users so you can use any of a number of accounts to now comment.

Thanks for reading and as always, a little patience can go a long way,

Returning to Medication

Okay, so let's get blogging.
As I said on Facebook and my last post I want to talk about my medication. I never realised just how helpful the medication was until I've got back onto it.

Just an Update

Hello everyone,
So after what can only be called a very long break I'm back. Now i don't know how often I will post because I have commitments with the job centre and going forward with a college application. All this means I have a busy schedule.
