Hello and today I shall be linking up with @brummymummyof2 for her #wickedwendnesdays linky 

“Each week I would like you to link up the most realistic or funny or just daft photo you took of everyday family life. Could be your child weeping over a dropped ice cream.

Or a hilarious family selfie where not one single one of you is looking at the camera or the huge pile of washing you are never going to get finished. Anything. In fact? The funnier the better! Something to make us all smile and we can be joined in the sometimes doomed magic’ moments of being parents.”


My entry is monkey having a #tantrum

#Autiemumschatter – 1

Here is the opening series of ‘Autie mum chatter’ two friends with two children living on the Autistic Spectrum. Talking about things, getting it off our chest at the end of a tough day, crying and then have a laugh and the end.

Granted, yes it is hard work being an autistic child’s mum
It is not A walk in the park, and it can often seem trying,especially with judgemental people who are quick to give out their opinion on how to be A parent.

I bet they never had a child that acted up in public. and the thought of a child screaming,crying and making a scene would mortify them.
They would More often say, loud enough ‘if that was my child, it would have been given a slap’.

The eyes and shameful stares  Do you not think I know your watching and muttering your disapproval in my child that is unable to cope with her surroundings? the noise, smells and the crowds?
Have you ever felt claustrophobic? Anxiety attack? The feeling that you’re losing control?
Can you imagine as an adult how you could cope? Expressing your feelings in how scared you feel you’re going dizzy and ringing in your ears. The only way a child cope is to try and run away.

So next time you see a child and parent in distress don’t be so quick with your tongue,

offer a sympathetic smile, for a parent that smile could be the boost they need or ask if they need any help.

A little story for you,

I was out shopping and I could hear a child, of about 4 years old crying and screaming. the mother was doing so well in trying to stay calm. But I could see her feel powerless in the battle with her distressed child.

I approached with care, and made eye contact with the mum, and then she was crying,unable to contain her emotions.

I offered my hand to them both and asked if she could have a sweetie. I said how mummy loved her and how shopping to get bits for dinner needed to doing. The mum hugged me when the little girl skipped off holding her hand.

do you have a child with Autism or ASD, ADHD ? please know you are not alone.


UB40 Labour of Love

I cannot wait until Friday, I booked tickets at the 02 Arena to go and see UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue.
This is a band my mum loves and I grew up listening to.

I had  never realised until now, that the playlist they will be singing is the labour of love album 1&2

Never  dreamed I would get to see them play these songs live so it should be a great night !

We had a fantastic night, my second ever concert, and to see UB40 with mum was amazing !!
