Blogging is fun! And time consuming.....

OK, hands up, I'll admit it, I've been fiddling with the layout all day. Really wanted to pick this background though as it involves water, and it makes me smile when I think of how much both my girls love swimming. Sasha has been a water baby from the word go, and Tamsin is now having lessons and improving rapidly. Can't imagine anyone ever trying to give Sasha a lesson! Where do you find a swim teacher who is trained in autism anyhow?! Fortunately she's a natural - with the armbands. Not sure what will happen when she gets too big for them!

I've been inspired to freshen up my page by all the other mummy bloggers whose posts I've read lately. It's amazing how many different life stories there are out there, and I do sometimes feel guilty as I know my life is not as difficult as many others'. Ah, guilt, there we go again, the mainstay of being a mum :) Still, at the same time as developing a thick skin, I've had to also learn not to worry about everyone else - there just aren't enough hours in the day! But I still do sometimes...

Anyhow hope any new readers do carry on and read some of the earlier posts which explain how we've got to where we are now. Comments and feedback always greatly appreciated!


  1. blogging is so much fun and so time consuming. I don't know what it looked like before but looks nice now.
    found you via BMB.

  2. Hey Love your blog!!! Its just great! Welcome to the blogging world! Keep up the good work. You write beautifully! x

  3. I think blogging is brill!!! I only blog a few times every month as jsut don't have the time for anymore!! I would say if you could change the type at the top of the blog as it;s a bit faint on the blue??

  4. Hiya, visiting from BMB and have followed. Blogging can really suck you in but it is great fun and a super resource/ support.

    Have you been to visit Jen at the King and Eye blog? She is another mummy with an autistic child and if you check her blog roll out you will find tons of parents of children with Autism blogs. Some super inspiring reads out there.

  5. Totally agree about the guilt thing...and the worrying what others think thing...and the swimming fact I can relate to pretty much every word of this post! Lovely to find you x (via the BMB website by the way).


Comments are always very much appreciated and can really help the conversation go further...
