Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone.  We have had a hectic few days celebrating Daisy's 9th (yes, can you believe it 9 years old!) birthday and preparing for Christmas.  Here's a beautiful picture of us all meeting Santa in Harrods on her birthday.

Life is pretty tough with lots of seizures, intravenous medications and an ever increasing workload but moments like this and the chance to celebrate another year with Daisy make it all worthwhile.

Wherever you are, thank you for reading my blog and sharing my journey  - have a peaceful and relaxing festive season.

Aspie Christmas Everyone!

I love Christmas.  I love the preparation, the carols & cheesy songs, the parties, the socialising, the decorations - in fact I guess I'm a bit like Buddy from the film Elf when it comes to Christmas.

Product Review: Firefly GoTo Seat by Leckey

Yes , you read right, I'm doing a product review.  Guess what, it's for a product that at the moment Daisy can't even use but I think it's so fab I wanted to review it and tell you all about it.

Over the years, as the world has become more savvy about providing for the needs of disabled children products have been developed that are aimed at making their, and their parents lives a bit easier.  When I saw the GoTo seat I just wished it had been around a few years ago when Daisy was a bit smaller - because it would really have been a godsend.  How often did we find ourselves leaving Daisy confined to her special needs buggy in restaurants because the high chairs were not safe for her to sit in with her poor tone, or travelling to visit friends, we would have to lug her large, special needs chair which did not fold down and took up even more space in our full to the brim car.

Thank you for giving me another chance!

Thank you all so much, I am so delighted to be able to post that I have been selected as one of four official bloggers for the 2014 London Marathon.  I am so grateful for each and every vote, thank you so much for taking the time to vote, share my link and asking your friends and family to vote.  You have given me a great early Christmas present - the chance to combine two things that have become very important in my life in recent years - blogging and running (but not at the same time, that could be logistically a bit difficult!)
