It didn’t Matter at All

Honey and Tom
Went for a walk.
Honey was small and Tom couldn’t talk.

They wandered through
The forest
Honey chattered non stop
My favourite horse is ainsley
He goes clip clop, clip clop

Tom smiled at honey
And followed along.
He inspected the trees
And the ground they walked on

They walked through the trees
And climbed over a wall
They didn’t notice
Night beginning to fall.

The walked and they walked,
Until honey said
“We’d better ...

Today I was planning for an appointment I had on my schedule for tomorrow. I arranged childcare and my travel route. I planned what to wear and what to dress the children in. I sorted out our fares and looked online at Google Maps to visually see where I was going so I was mentally prepared.

I decided to ring up as ...

One word that ruined our day.

Posted by:

 

After taking my children to the park I decided to take them for a meal, so we went to a local café. They’d had a day of splashing in the paddling pool and playing on the slides and swings and were all played out, tired and ready to eat.

 

We are sitting there enjoying our meal and at a nearby table a young woman appears to be enjoying hers. The toilet door opens and a child of about four years old ...

As a writer I always have my ear to the ground for a story, as an autistic mother to autistic children my heart always craves that one day we will have acceptance.

Autistic Rights and the Need for Advocation

Posted by:

Autistic rights and the need for advocation.

 

Throughout  history we have been seen as eccentrics, loners and oddities.

In the 1900’s the poor of us were  to be found begging in the streets and many of us were housed in the workhouses or detained till the end of our days in mental institutions . We were used for cheap labour, detained in the infamous magdalene factories in Ireland and shipped over to Australia with the convict influx that was ostracised there along ...

Fitting in versus standing out.

Posted by:

As a child I remember feeling so very different to the other girls. They weren’t interested in insects and animal hospitals. They ran screaming from my pet snail Molly  whom I painted red with white spots.

I would try all day to fit in at school but was bullied constantly. I was the butt of most jokes and gravitated to the other misfits present in my school year.  One  no one would play with  as she smelled of urine and another ...
