The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened In September

Back to school is never an easy transition. New classes, new teachers, remembering to go to a different classroom and that’s just the parents! This year saw Alana embark on year eight and Thomas embark on year four which also makes him a badger.

Disneyland Paris Trip Report – Day 2

You may have already read my previous two posts Disneyland Paris Trip Report Day 1 and my review of the Hotel Cheyenne. If you haven’t please click on the above links and check them out!

As previously mentioned during our visit in 2015, I made no plan! We winged it and in all honesty, it was fine we didn’t have the green pass at that point so it can be done. However, after checking out the Disneyland Paris for Brits group on facebook I was inspired to make at least a rough plan for our trip.

So I’m a Carer…What Happened to Being Just a Mum?

I am an unpaid carer who looks after my son who has additional needs, I am not alone in this as my husband is his main carer now. Being a carer full time, part time, occasionally puts great pressure on our lives as individuals, as a couple and as parents. I personally carry around a great deal of guilt, should I be at home more, should I be working more, should I be spending more time helping him with his needs, should I be attending every course, workshop and coffee morning just to feel like I’m not alone because the one thing I’ve learnt it’s lonely being a carer or a caring team.

Are Mum’s Being Forced into Minimum Wage Jobs?

You know how it is, you decide you want to be a stay at home mum, you want to work fewer hours, you want more flexibility within your working day but there is just nothing suitable or flexible enough or your employer already feels the strain.

Navigating Legoland Windsor with a Special Needs Child

Now, if you are from the UK. Most of us have at least heard of Legoland Windsor. It is a Merlin Attractions owned theme park in the Berkshire countryside, within an hours drive of London (traffic permitting). It is influenced by Lego and is ideal for children under the age of 13. Rides range from pre-school to primary school. If you like thrills and rollercoasters, you may be better visiting nearby Chessington World of Adventures or Thorpe Park.

My Weight Loss Battle Update 1

So it’s been three months! Three long months of counting calories, watching every little crumb and I’ve pretty much lost 5lbs. Okay, can’t complain an awful lot as lost but still!

My So Called Life – My Monthly Battle

It’s tough being a woman! It’s also tough being a man but at least they can choose if they want to shave every day and it is socially acceptable if they decide not to.
