You know
My daughter.  13years old and Perfect. 
Quirky, beautiful, caring, loyal, nervous, friendly, lonely, loving, unusual, thoughtful. PERFECT. 
I've always described my daughter as quirky, or her actions as a lizzisms. 
The start of our journey. Lizzi had some unusual behaviour at infant school,  when she was about 5 years old, she rocked constantly on her chair "went off into her special place" unfortunately we didn't have a very knowledgeable teacher, she wanted to refer to camhs but made it sound as though we were in trouble, and to be honest we panicked. She said some things that shocked me and we moved her school.

Fast forward a few years to the last year of primary school where Lizzi anxieties started to manifest, particularly with bus journeys.  The first major problem was the school residential trip which she was really looking forward to. But a few days before she started getting very upset about the upcoming bus ride.  A few children had mentioned to …

It's been a while

Life Blimey!!! So it's been a while since I wrote on my blog, to be honest it's been a time full of highs and lows, I've kept thinking I must write but just haven't been able too. There has been lovely family meals and a great family and friends Christmas. There has been holidays,  fun days, dog days and downright tricky days. 
My beautiful daughter is quirky in the most glorious way. We've been referred to camhs for her as they're questioning high functioning autism (formally Aspergers), she certainly has some key behaviours, whether it is that or not, we need at times a little support and understanding with her. Academically she's absolutely fine, but social she's a few years behind, and sometimes that can cause issues.  We are currently 22weeks on a waiting list to see the correct department and they've said I could be another 30!  My advice is if you have any concern with your children push for help early!  
As a family we've had many issue…

Combining and Almost a Family Holiday

My Daughter, Niece and Dad have just had a lovely 10 days away, we towed my Dads caravan to the lovely seaside campsite of Penrhyn Bay on Angleseys North Coast.  I thought is was perfect beautiful coast location, clean facilities, swimming pool and plenty of space for the children to play. It was also seconds from a glorious sandy beach.




We had some lovely days out around Angelsey too, The children were desperate to go to Foel Farm Park on the Menai Straight somewhere they remember going to 3 years earlier and loved.

We had a fabulous day to South Stack the remote Light house on the North East side of Holyhead we've been a few times before but this time made more special by having the privilege of seeing a Rossi Dolphin and her calf. No pictures I'm afraid I was too busy watching them.

The start of the holiday was overshadowed by high winds which were a little concerning being on the seafront but we put the storm straps on (all 5 of them) and a wind break we then tucked our…

My baby is growing up

Well this week I  realised my little girls definetly growing up.  She 11years old, nearly 12 and is a cocoon or raging hormones.


Her emotions are like a huge swing boat, going from angelic little girl to screaming 'you don't understand' banshee. Check out my previous post Junior Jekyll and Hyde here .

I realised that her hair continually needs washing at moment, that prompted me to purchasing her first
'Ladies things' *Miranda Style*' just incase she's not at home, or I'm not at home when the inevitable happens.



The other day she surprised me with her confidence in walking into town to spend her pocket money. She came home with a huge smile on her face, she'd been into New Look and bought herself 2 new bras,  she took them into the changing room, tried them on to check they were the correct size. Then bought them.  I could never has done that at 11years old, I would have been far to embarrassed.

We have decided that she now needs more responsibilit…

Junior Jekyll and Hyde

Jekyll
My beautiful gorgeous daughter, she's my best friend and we have some  fabulous days out with her.   She loves going out for dinner and is great company, she holds conversation beautifully, talking and chatting with anyone.  In fact her nickname is Elizababble. 
She will help with household chores, loading the dishwasher and hoovering the stairs, she is my Angel.  And then....  Hyde appears! 
She changes person every time she enters the room!  One moment she is hugging me, telling me she loves me, the next. Wham,  she's shouting and stamping her feet, storming up stairs, slamming doors, hiding!  I'm never sure who it is I'm going to get. I'm sure I was NEVER like that, though I think my parents will disagree.


My Daughter is an only child, she has 2 very close cousins that we see regularly and although they are argumentative with each other, I think they treat each other as sisters, squabbling and making up is a daily occurrence. 
I love my daughter uncondit…
