My Week – 12/09/2016

I have not done a my week post for a while now, due for various reasons, but am going to restart doing them, as I know a lot of people liked them and I have had people message me regarding them, also sorry this is a little late. Last week, was full of mainly positives for a change.  Will start with my Daughter C, I had a little panic on Monday, as we had not heard anything regarding her tutoring sessions, and school starting back on Wednesday, so the emails…

Make Your Home Accessible this Summer

Make Your Home Accessible this Summer

Summer is a great time for a get-together, whether it’s a big family meal, a kids’ party or a few friends having drinks al fresco. It should be a time for everyone to enjoy each other’s company and feel included, but for some children it can be quite a challenge. Those who have accessibility needs often require extra preparations to be made before they can move easily around a building, and this can make attending parties with friends and family much less simple than it should be.   It can…

My Week – Sorry A Bit Late

My Week – Sorry A Bit Late

I know I am very late with my weekly post, where has this week gone and how can it be Wednesday already. Last week, was very mixed, it was one of my busiest and nicest weeks, together with one of my worst weeks ever.  I am not going to dwell on why it was one of my worst weeks, but lets just say, I really learnt a lot about people who I thought cared and realised who my friends are/were. It was a busy week because I had 3 coffee…

My Week – 06/06/16

I am a bit late in doing my post this week, as we were away for the weekend, so am doing my little update for you today. As I mentioned last week, we had both the boys here for the weekend staying, which was great having all 3 together under one roof for the first time in ages, it really affected my Daughter.  Although she was in bed most of the time they were here. Luckily it was half term last week, but unfortunately, while everyone was out and about…

My Week – 09/04/2016

So another week has past us and it is time for my weekly post on the exciting life in the StressedMum household. I will start off with an update of my Daughter as I know a lot of you are following her story.  Monday, I arranged to meet up with my friend, her Daughter is also a friend of my Daughters and they are at the same school.  We decided to meet up at our local garden centre for a catch up. As parking is difficult there, I rang to…

My Week – 26/03/16

Another week has passed and time again for my weekly update.  This week has been full of firsts for me. I will start with an update on my Daughter for all those following how she is doing, she is no better, I have spent the week trying to speak to her Consultant with no joy.  Our GP decided to refer her to CAHMS and I spoke to them on Monday, but she said they probably couldn’t help after I described about her illness and what we wanted, but do have…

My Week 20/02/2016

It has been half term here, which has been nice not to have any alarms going off and worrying about my Daughter going to school. Unfortunately, she is still no better and has spent most of the week in bed, we have had yet another Dr appointment and a few more hospital letters with appointments, but still no nearer to finding out what is wrong with her. I asked if she would like one of her friends to come round for a few hours, and she said she would like…

ActSma Butterfly Ball

ActSma Butterfly Ball

I have written before about the amazing charity ActSma, you can read about it here Each year, they host a Butterfly Ball, and we got home last night from this years Ball. The night was amazing, Emma works so hard to raise awareness and funds to help other families, she is an amazing woman and I am very honoured to call her my friend. The ball started at 6pm, with welcome drinks and your photograph taken (we were the official photographers this year), before being seated at your table at…
