Today I have for you, dear readers a song; sung to the tune of Fiddler's Dram - "Day Trip to Bangor (Didn't We Have a Lovely Time)" Didn’t we have a loverly time the day we went to Greylands? A beautiful day Police dragged me away Thank God we hid the baby You … Continue reading Old Song Reworked
As I was sitting in my own lounge room; carefully selecting wrapping paper and gift tags (homemade of course) to suit each individual, using my best Sheaffer pens to write their names in calligraphy; my husband just started an argument out of the blue. He said I was crazy! I asked him, politely, what made … Continue reading How Many Cats?
In my opinion autistic people tend to be more honest than your average neurotypical. Lying hurts, its hard. Except lying for fun; inventing stuff that few would be deceived by or if they are they will realise by the end that it was a joke. I do this all the time as I've said Lying … Continue reading Truth vs Autism
This is in response to some posts I've read from some really lovely mothers of autistic children. I understand where they are coming from but I would like to present a friendly alternative argument.

It's the end, the beloved battlefield; Castle Cat, is finished. Admittedly it is 3 years old and has been well loved, but recently pieces have started to fall down. Probably not helped by repeated invasions by the rabbit brothers. With one big kick Whisper dislodged one of the perches so it was over. Fortunately we … Continue reading The Castle is Lost
Just when I think I am getting my life together, everything goes wrong. I feel like a capable adult, I think like a capable adult. I make complicated plans; based on a broad knowledge and intelligent reasoning, I have the skills to do many things extremely well. But I never get anywhere. I can't get … Continue reading I’m Out
Friday Night Attack of the Terribly Twisted Teens After a last minute panic; no one had informed the fish or Danger the axylotl of the impending invasion. Plus I owned glass markers and had only annoyed the kids a couple of times with them. So obviously I wrote on all 3 tanks (backwards so they … Continue reading Teens, Tantrums & Technical Difficulties.
