No, I'm not MAD, although some might disagree. My word of the week is MAD which stands for Mum and Dad and I'm a finalist in the 2016 blog Awards! I've been a finalist three times now, I've never won and you know what they say, three times a bridesmaid, never a bride. Well, I really don't expect to win, I'm up against some fabulous bloggers in my category, Schooldays.
Sarah from Extraodinary Chaos
Colette from We're Going On An Adventure

Jenny from Let's talk Mommy
Karen from Stopping At Two
Good luck everyone! I'm looking forward to meeting you.
I also need to give a shout out to Steph from Steph's Two Girls who is up for an outstanding contribution award. I've been with Steph every time I've been at the awards but this is the first time she's actually been a finalist so I'm so chuffed for her. She does a brilliant job at educating everyone about a specific type of autism, PDA, and helps so many people along the way. My fingers are tightly crossed for her x
So, thoughts of the awards have occupied my mind all week, I've my dress, shoes, bag, train tickets, hotel reservation and babysitters sorted for the littlies. I'm excited to be having a night away with my partner, we've never been away alone before. He needs to come with me this year as I just can't cope alone with my disabilities.
It's going to be a fabulous night and I wish everyone there the best of luck and if you don't win, don't worry, it's still wonderful to have made it this far and it's such a wonderful event to be part of.
I'd like to say a big Thank You to everyone who took the time to nominate and vote for me. It really means so much to me.
(This girl actually reminds me of me as a kid, thanks to my mum and her love of ringlets)
In other news...in case you read my word of the week a couple of weeks ago I'd like to report that I can now drive my car! Actually driving with your hands is pretty easy, I just need to learn to brake a little more gently.
Also, I had a visit with my consultant which I talk about more later. I waited 8 months for this appointment and learnt quite a lot. I also had some new medication which might help my spasms. I'm still recovering but I've lots of hope to get much better.
