Finding calm in the chaos

One small step for man…..

How did I live without Pinterest? I spent 10 mins (or was it hours) yesterday looking at “organising paperwork/receipts” and I found some great ideas. I have to say though that I was amazed at the level some people go to – definite A types. However, one of my big...

True Chaos in Kent …. update

I have achieved what I thought un-achievable earlier today. I have created a work space for me. The Yorkshire Tea large caddies are now storage for paperwork, my printer is to hand, I have space for paper and pens And more importantly, just to the left is the coffee machine....

True Chaos in Kent

Oh I wish my life could be organised as beautifully as my Pinterest boards. I have such an unbelievable envy of those who are organised and have a tidy home. My house is full of piles of paperwork, boxes of toys, over flowing drawers and tables masquerading as “in trays”....

101 Games and Activities for Children with Autism, Aspergers and Sensory Processing Disorders

This book was a Christmas gift from my in-laws (along with Downton Abbey boxset and Clarins skin products – spoiled I know). As I’m sure you all know, there are so many books out there and some of them very very expensive. You’re never sure if it is worth buying...
