The part you won’t see on my vlog!

then he ran! He didnt just run, he ran dramatically towards the cock pit of the plane, shouting at the top of his now man voice “I fucking hate you all”, chased by me and two flight attendants!

How Airbnb ruined our Christmas

Please be very careful if using Air bnb. If you try to book accommodation and get a message telling you their system is down and the booking didn’t go through so please try again – DONT TRY AGAIN! Wait to see if you pay for the failed booking first. If they tell you it is “just a hold on your card” and it wont go out of your bank, don’t believe them.  Getting money refunded that they have taken in error is like trying to get water from a stone. As I write this post, I STILL DON’T HAVE MY MONEY! 

Topgolf Orlando

We had great fun playing the interactive golf games and you could easily spend half a day or an evening playing and eating or drinking. What I especially liked was that you could still score points even if you couldn’t hit the ball particularly far, this means it is also great for kids or people like me!

The Great Escape Room Orlando

If you are going to do any escape room with your autistic child, choose this one! Samantha is brilliant. She has much experience working with autistic children and knows how to handle anything that might come up. She explains clearly and gives enough thoughtful help to stop frustration. She is also more than capable of dealing with meltdowns or any other situation that may arise. When you book you can request that Samantha be supervising your room and they will arrange a time with you that she can be in the room with you.

Tiosebon knitted sneakers review

Apart from being a great fit, easy to slip on to my feet and really comfortable, the shoes are super light and great looking too! I tested my shoes out in various locations and scenarios.

Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester

I was pleased to see how much thought has gone into welcoming autistic guests to the Legoland Discovery Centre, especially taking into account so many autistic children love lego!

We try out Mini Earthlings kits

Mini Earthlings make kits for families to make their own skincare at home. The kits are designed to be educational and creative, whilst also being kind and respectful to the environment.

The concept of these kits appealed to me, and I thought they would be good to try out with my kids

The kindness of a stranger

I was all too aware that we had disturbed all of the people around us, that none of them really knew what was going on. When they boarded the plane that day they could probably tell by the fact my 13 year old was wearing bright blue ear defenders, a sunflower lanyard and sucking his thumb with a taggie blanket, that something was different but they couldn’t have known he would have a melt down mid flight.

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum, New York

That is a day that most of us old enough to remember will never forget, those scenes etched in our memories forever. It is a day that changed so many lives around the world and one that should never be forgotten, along with those that unnecessarily lost their lives. It is a day our children should know about so those memories live on forever.
