Welcome to Mothers Day part 2

For those of you that are following my blogs daily, ha ha, yesterday's excuse will hopefully be published tomorrow. This is the second part of a something that had an explanation blog first.

Welcome to Mothers Day part 1

Why am I subjecting you to a repeat of this story? This is the first story I wrote as an adult. I found I could write while making notes for a story about Mothers Day while living it (it was intended just to help me ignore the kids). This whimsical little story then became the … Continue reading Welcome to Mothers Day part 1

Hi

Hello, I'm not saying where I've been.   It's depressing, boring and a barrier to me re-starting. Suffice it to say no where, I have been at home. All the pets are fine, except one psychotic fish who hates me,   who is actually quite healthy so that description is inaccurate. I'll try again. All … Continue reading Hi

KSP Exercise – POV

I may have been ignoring my blog but I've still been facilitating at KSP Writers' Centre.  Admittedly mostly Tabby and Alex but I believe technically there are considered people.  And they do pay, actually I pay.  That's right I pay to boss about my own kids.  Actually thinking about it, they listen to me; money … Continue reading KSP Exercise – POV

And … Continue reading Get Off the Rainbow, Autism Is Not All Positive

No Post This Morning!

And the mental vacuum that inhabits this human suit! Bah, humbug, kill them!  I hear you say! And you are … Continue reading No Post This Morning!

Teenagers and Trust

I have 4 daughters, if you only include humans.  Given my topic today is how far to trust children out of your sight I think it's safe to only include the humans because I don't let the pets leave the place without supervision. I love pets!  I believe all animals have rights but I do … Continue reading Teenagers and Trust

My Little Genius

Tabitha is in year 11 and thanks to the years of delays in obtaining therapy her coping strategies are completely inadequate to the new level of tension.   The cracks started to show at the end of last year; studying the Holocaust upset her so much it effected all her subjects.  I wanted her to … Continue reading My Little Genius

Weather Forecast

Our eldest is going to Super Nova or some such thing tomorrow and is a bit nervous.  Not because of the possible gravitation issues, its a collecting, sci/fi thingamajig not a astrological whatsit.  I think my linguistic skills are compromised by a lack of sleep. Anyway she is nervous because she is basically a recluse … Continue reading Weather Forecast
