Beaver 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

Beaver
Because DS1 got chosen to look after the cuddly beaver all week from Scouts. So, we have been to Coombe Abbey (a beautiful park near where I live) on an adventure at the weekend to take some photos for Scouts. It was lovely to have a walk in the woods in Autumn, so many beautiful trees!

Of course at the weekend it was bonfire night and we saw so many beautiful, big fireworks. I love the colours, not so much the bang as I have sensitive ears. We had hot dogs,  I am glad we stayed at home as it was so blooming cold,  brrrr. We live up on 16th floor so  lucky to see all the fireworks. I do miss an actual bonfire, I just think they are beautiful to watch burning away, maybe one day we can when we move to a house, fingers crossed.

hope you have had a good week!

Fun 

Hey Readers,

My word of the week is:
because we have done same fun things during this week. We went to the cinema to see Paw Patrol, which made my son super happy, as he has been begging for ages. We went to the Showcase with there fancy recliner seats,  makes the experience so much more comfy.
For Halloween we visited a pumpkin patch and picked a MASSIVE pumpkin. Then we carved and the boys love it when it get lit every night with tea lights in. I think they are going be sad when we have to throw it away. The boys helped decorate the home with spooky decorations and the eldest went to a Halloween fancy dress.

Hope you had a fun week!

Tired

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

TIRED

Because I am trying to adjust to my medication that makes me feel pretty lousy a,s it has a massive side effect of drowsiness. I am working on a system that works best for me and my body. It is still under working progress! I am just glad I have my husband as my registered carer or else I would be royally screwed.

One major additional pressure is that it is half term and there is constant noise, so many things to do and trying to juggle them all is an act in itself. Don’t get me wrong I do love having the boys around, it is just they have so much energy that it is exhausting to watch, haha!

Hope you have had a fab week!

Adapting 

Hey readers,
my word of the week is:


this is because I have changed my medication for anxiety and adjusting to that takes time. I need to accept that miracles don’t happen in a day and the side effects will go with time.

Let’s not forget that beautiful red sun on Monday, now feels like a distance away, haha!

Also, this week I went to my eldest parent evening, he seems absolutely fine with no concerns. He is the type of child to get on with learning and he especially enjoys findings out the way things work.

He did some yoga this term for three days a week before school started. I think he is a little sad that it has ended but happy knowing that after half term he will be starting Street dance.

Hope your week has been good.

Drained

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

DRAINED.png

Because I am drained, I am really tired and my eldest is really testing me. Even  my hubby who is rather chilled himself it is slowly getting to him too.

My eldest is getting more violent (hitting, scratching, biting) and having meltdowns episodically after school. I am trying to deal with my own issues relating to my autism, so trying to find that winning combination is bloody hard work.

I get ‘advice’ but it is exhausted to implement the long list of new things to incorporate. I just get fed up with these professionals dumping this advice on to you. You then got to remember all these new rules. Along with having to go for PIP assessment next week my anxiety is really pushed. I just want that time to not have to think about how I am meant to perform and just be brain dead for a bit.
