So Sunday is moving day. It seems like quite a long haul when I look back on the blog posts over the past few months, but in the grand scheme of things it’s been quite a speedy process. Or so I have been told by a nurse on my brothers ward. ‘These things normally take […]


We got it! A new direction for my autistic brother. Funding has been approved! We have waited years for him to get the help he so badly needed but he never scored highly enough on the social care questionnaire. Just one point off would mean he didn’t ‘qualify’ for a social worker. That one point […]

So the story of my brother continues. I am still seeing him once a week to keep his spirits up while we wait for the funding panel to say YES on Thursday…. Notice what I did there? Positive thoughts and writing will manifest the result! Today, I drove to town to meet him from his […]


Are you waxing or waning? I used to be very confused by this terminology, then one day it just made sense. A waxing moon in one that is ‘filling up’, as in becoming full. Depicted in your diary and calendar as a white circle. A full-up moon. Then, when it goes past that stage, it […]


It’s funny when I look back on my life how many people have asked, ‘Are you a witch?’ Jokingly I would say yes! There must have been a reason why they asked though. I’m certainly not part of a coven, I don’t dress up in a cloak (although I’ve always rather liked the idea) and […]


I was converted to muesli after a ski holiday to Austria earlier in the year. You could just add all the extra bits you liked and grind a  selection of seeds in a lovely wooden spice mill making it kind of special. After a few weeks of being back home the novelty had worn off […]


So, for those of you following the story of my autistic brother and the lack of support for mental health these days, is giving up an option? Not in my world it’s not. We haven’t got this far just to just walk away from it. The tools I have to be able to set intentions, […]


Today I asked my Autistic brother if he would like to go on a picnic tomorrow. ‘Not really.’ he said, ‘that’s what children do.’ So, I thought in the light of him still being in the care of the NHS, he may like a day out. I had no idea he would think a picnic […]


Yep, let’s discuss poop. I’ve always been a three times a day girl. In the morning. If I only go twice, that’s ok. If just the once I feel unfinished, and heaven help us if I don’t go at all. Major grumpiness! Constipation can be a problem for many with varying degrees of blockage, and […]


Everyone needs some time out from their normal routine for a de-stress. A recharge of the batteries and time to recalibrate the system. We ensure that our cars get a regular yearly service, so why not our body? Probably because we don’t realise we need some down time until it’s too late. We run on […]
