A million dreams.

I remember, almost 11 years ago, as I woke up to find a perfect baby girl placed beside me on the hospital bed, the instant need to make this world a happy place for her. As soon as I found out that I was pregnant I had a million dreams for the little person growing […]

She is simply incredible.

Ten years ago our beautiful little princess Megan burst into our lives. She arrived quickly, (after a few false starts) and surrounded by drama. She has been our little princess ever since! Megan had the ability from day one to be able to keep us on our toes. Initially she struggled with reflux but after […]

Two little Ducks went swimming one day…

Do you remember that nursery rhyme? My kids both loved it. Neither have mentioned it for a few years but last week it popped back into my head. When we decided to go to Disney again, we decided to make it a longer trip. Our last trip with the kids had been hard for Elijah. […]

The Greatest Showman

We went to see The Greatest Showman in the cinema yesterday as a family and I have to say what an amazing way to start 2018. I would confidently say that this will be the best film we see this year. There wasn’t a moment that I could take my eyes off the screen, I […]


noun: thunder a loud rumbling or crashing noise heard after a lightning flash due to the expansion of rapidly heated air. “there was a crash of thunder” You know those moments in life? The ones where you are trundling along nicely, all the pieces of your puzzle feel like they’re slotting into place and then […]

‘To live would be an awfully big adventure’

I had so many plans for blogs this month. Autism is a massive part of the reason I started to blog. Therefore when would I want to blog more than Autism awareness month? The crashing reality is that almost as soon as this month started I feel immediately overwhelmed. I have no idea why this […]

Mummy in a mess.

Ever have one of those weeks you just couldn’t make up? We’ve had one of those! Partly of my own doing by cramming so much in and partly just random life getting in the way. I started the week by taking Megan to go and see Wonderland at the Grand Opera House in Belfast. We […]

A tale as old as time.

This weekend I got to go and see the new live action¬†Beauty and the Beast. I have to say I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t live up to my very high expectations as this film, although not my favourite Disney movie was one that was special to me and I remember clearly going […]

I’ll be your clown.

A few weeks ago I wrote about how Megan was about to take part in her first school play. Of course it went amazingly and she was a wee superstar, in fact all the kids where outstanding really. It was lovely to see so many personailities be given the chance to shine in such different […]

Finding a balance.

This week Ben and I where very blessed to get two nights away to Galgorm Resort and Spa. This is by far Bens favourite type of holiday or break and all other chances of booking holidays in the year are a total no go unless there is space and budget for at least one trip […]
