April Is Autism Awareness Month 

April Is Autism Awareness Month, for those of you that don’t know what Autism is now is the chance to research, find out and raise your own awareness of the condition.

Here are some facts taken directly from www.autism.org.uk which you find helpful:

The term ‘autism‘ is used here to describe all diagnoses on the autism spectrum including classic autism, Asperger syndrome and high-functioning autism.

Autism is a serious, lifelong and disabling condition. Without the right support, it can have a profound – sometimes devastating – effect on individuals and families. Autism is much more common than many people think. There are around 700,000 people in the UK living with autism – that’s more than 1 in 1001.… View Post

I thought it was meant to be spring, but apparently the weather has other ideas.…

Losing Time & Springing Forward

Just a quick reminder for you all, the clocks ‘Spring forward’ an hour tonight (well technically tomorrow morning at 1am precisely but you know what I mean). This means two things … Firstly, lighter nights or in other words, having to convince your kids that it is time to go to bed despite it still being light outside. Secondly, we will get one less hour in bed as time magically skips forward an hour. Whilst I love the idea of summer nights, realistically it means that bedtime will seem like hell on earth for a week or so whilst our little lovelies adjust.…
