Resolutions and reflections

New Years Day

I've had a fabulous Christmas spent with family and friends all be it full of cold. New Years Eve came and went for me as I was not feeling particularly well, so we watched Mrs Brown d'movie and saw in the new year tucked up in bed.  

2015 has been a great year and I had some amazing times with family friends and work colleagues, from day trips out to London 

 To family holidays in France. 

Working holidays to Vintage Nostalgia and Goodwood Revival, 

Staff outing...

And family Christmas

I've have had brilliant times in the salon and difficult times with members of staff leaving. But feel we have turned a corner and the salon is going from strength to strength.

Throughout the day I have seen many posts on facebook and Twitter about resolutions for the forthcoming year,  and I've been thinking about what my resolutions will be... 

To be healthier.... Yes I will try, one of my biggest problems Is I love food. I love to cook, so I will try to cook better food. 

To exercise more... Yes I will try, I'm going to walk more. 

To be Happier..... Yes I will try, but to be honest I've had a fabulous 2015 and it's going to hard to be happier than I have been this year, so I will try to be as happy as I been last year. 

Do I think these resolutions will make 2016 any better  Probably not. But I'm going to spend more time with my family and laugh more. Laugh at myself more I can be a little serious, I'm not going to worry to much about my weight, I know the reasons for this and I'm ok with it. 

I am going to make more memories for 2016 

Happy New Year

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…
