Sand Play {Bonus Peppa Pig Giveaway}

March 17, 2014

I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but the Easter School Holidays are mere weeks away. In previous years, I’ve not really been affected. Milla was home all day, every day, 365 days of the year. However, this year is different. Milla has started Early Intervention, 3 year old kinder and we have our special needs play/support […]

Autism. Where I Stand.

Autism. Where I Stand.

March 3, 2014

I’m not one who courts controversy. I have strong opinions, and will often get fired up about things, just ask my husband, or online bestie Lisa. I often write a ranty blog post in my head whilst lying in bed at night, even going so far as to put notes in my phone, so I don’t […]

One Moment Of Time.

One Moment Of Time.

February 24, 2014

*Trigger warning: This post may raise issues for readers who have experience with depression and/or suicide.* I’m lying in bed writing this on my phone. I don’t know if I’ll publish it. I’ve always hated bloggers who appear to jump on a bandwagon. Turn a tragedy into blog fodder.   The thing is, I can’t […]

A is for Anxiety.

A is for Anxiety.

February 21, 2014

A is for Anxiety. For her and for me. It is a strange world our little family of three have been living in, these past few months. The anxiety that has always been underlying Milla’s behaviour, has taken over, to the point where she is in a constant state of ‘fight or flight’. Her fear […]

Dear Milla…

January 31, 2014

Dear Milla, Sometimes it feels that life goes by so fast. We jump one hurdle, only to be faced with the next one. There is no time to celebrate our victories, for worrying about our challenges. I tend to dwell on the negatives, let them weigh me down. I think throughout my life, I have […]

Wordless Wednesday ~ Santa!

Wordless Wednesday ~ Santa!

December 18, 2013

The thing I love most about Santa photos, is having a record of how much Milla has grown over the previous twelve months. Milla had her very first Santa photo at two months old, however seeing as she was born two months premature, she was still teeny tiny, (2.6kgs, to be exact) and slept through […]

Suspending Reality.

Suspending Reality.

December 11, 2013

You would think at 33 years old, and having lived the life I’ve lived, I would have more of a grasp on reality, and grown out of childish fantasies. You would think. Confession- I regularly ‘cyber stalk’ my ‘fathers’; both step and birth father. I wonder about them. I wonder what they are doing, where they are living, […]

I Jumped! ~ Wordless Wednesday

December 3, 2013

As you may remember, I have been raising money for the organisation Support for Mums, asking people to sponsor me to jump out of a plane, 14,000 feet in the air and hurtle back down to earth. Well, Saturday the 30th was the big day! Strangely I had been quite calm in the lead up to […]

Exhausted

Exhausted

November 22, 2013

I’m exhausted. That type of exhaustion that you feel in your bones. You wake up in the morning, and before you even get out of bed, you’re exhausted. I feel like all I’ve done for the last twelve months, since we got our diagnosis, is worry and wait. Wait and worry. Waiting for services, for therapists, […]
