{travelling} to London, for HP UK event and Blogfest. It was a shame the HP event had to shift, meaning that I missed the morning session (including Rachael’s talk) but I made it to King’s Place in comfortable time for my first clinic at 12.30.  {talking tech} giving advice on wordpress, images, hosting, domain names.

The picture unseen


I take a lot of pictures every day these days. Maybe two or three make it to instagram, or my fb page, or sometimes here. Quite a lot just don’t fit the mood and they languish, on camera, on ipad. Like this flower. One of the blooms that I think will be polished off by […]

A chink in the clouds


   Sunrise at 07.21 – I was there maybe ten minutes later, just in time to see the sun peeping through clouds. Within ten minutes it had greyed out completely, so I think I was lucky. I drew during support group, while listening. And failed to buy jeans for blogfest on the way back, because […]

Tony Attwood on autism in females – my thoughts.

This video is just over 30 minutes long.  It’s worth every single minute if you have any interest in understanding how autism plays out in women. It’s very different to how it plays out in boys. Very different. Get a cuppa, we’ll meet back in half an hour to discuss. Professor Tony Attwood – Autism […]

{Reading} rattletrap car to the little ones, then Tigerboy did a drawing of the baby’s boat on paint, while Smallest and I did some nature drawing. {Experimenting} with pastels.
