Welcome 
Me myself and my family 
First of all let me welcome you to my new blog, I'm hoping to run this along side of my Facebook pages Tip Top Hair Design Ashby and Vintage at Tip Top Hair Design, my Twitter https://mobile.twitter.com/account, and my website www.tiptophairdesign.co.uk . Someone once told me that you as a business needed to be seen in 5 different ways for potential new customers to realise who you are,  so this is me increasing that.

I have thought for a few months about starting to write a blog about. Me, My salon, health,  being a mum and a farmers wife, I wanted this to be about me and how I balance everything! but still remaining professional,  not a common mix I know,  but trying to balance salon life with the life of a mum for the last 10 years and being with my husband for 20 years (married for 12) are aspects of my life I am equally passionate about.

I first met my husband back in 1995 when I was just 16 years old about to start my GCSEs, We met at Ashby young farmers club and it was love at first sight and we've been together ever since.  He has been there for me through exams, my hairdressing qualifications,  family and setting up my own business.  He supports me unconditionally and I him, Andy (nickname Nobby I don't know why) is a agricultural contractor, combining, ploughing and much more, he works very hard, often 15-16 hours a day during his busiest season. Sometimes we see very little of each other but it works for us. 

My daughter is an energetic 10 year old with a love of the outdoors like her father, she also likes to cook, ride her bike, sing and draw, she's a proper little girl who loves to wear makeup whilst jumping in puddles and getting filthy. Elizabeth was 5 months old when I opened the salon. She was the driving force in me wanting to create a business that could support our family, whilst giving me some flexibility to be there for those important childhood moments. 

Thank you 
Jac

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 …

Our continued journey 
After our psychiatric  appointment I was feeling quite positive things were moving forward and we were getting answers. I thought we'd get the support at school we needed but that wasn't to be the case, our psychiatrist wanted the school to refer her for cognitive psychometric testing however funding was an issue. So Dr Balal referred her himself.  
School This coincided with a particularly touch time at school, there was a number of bullying instances before half term with a few different children and I felt Lizzi was retreating into herself, she was quiet, more anxious, more highly strung and I was worried.  After half term I struggled again with getting her into school. 
We had been thinking of moving her to  Manor House School  for her GCSEs, an independent private school where their ethos is 'unlocking potential.  My husband my sister and I talked to Lizzi about the possibility of moving schools for this, she was so cross! I believe this was do…

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…
