20 Things I Have Learnt in the 20 Years Since Leaving School!

I had the realisation last week that I am officially an oldie. I made a comment about ‘those days’ and was mocked because it was, in fact, the good old 90’s! You know before social media, before the internet and when you could get your older looking ‘mate’ to buy alcohol because he/she looked 18!

Perran Sands Review 2019

We are a family of four and this was our seventh year staying at Perran Sands, but the first time visiting in May Half-Term and the first time trying an adapted caravan.

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.

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! Unfortunately, I like to see results! Getting on those scales, I want to see a loss than I can feel celebrates the week I had rejecting cake!

Juggling Work with a Special Needs Child

I came across an article recently where a parent/Mum spoke about her constant juggle with her home and work life balance. It got me thinking about my own work/life juggle. If you would like to check out the article written by Tania Tirraoro please check it out here at Special Needs Jungle.
