    I like the zebra promo, Anne, you are doing good work and I’ll try to find you on Twitter. Lots of back to school stuff on your end, I don’t know if you saw the article on always bringing a spare sock for the kids when trying on shoes but it seems like a must do. I won’t go into the story if you haven’t seen it.
    Anyway, hope the holiday camp works out and you’ve got a fine looking crew, fun pic, I bet it wasn’t easy getting them all up there.

    All about being prepared for you this week. Sounds like the kids were all sorted ready for school. I doubt it’ll be long before my son’s got bigger feet than his big sister, and she’s pretty big! I hope your awareness day goes well x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    Wow you sound super prepared Anne, well done you. Kids feet grow so fast you can’t keep up sometimes can you ! Best of luck with the awareness day, it sounds like you have everything under control for it. Have a great weekend x

    It doesn’t matter how prepared you are, there is always something that doesn’t turn up in time for the start of school. Ours was a school bag, but she had her old one and the new one arrived today. My middle teen overtook her older sister in shoes a while back and doesn’t seem to be stopping. Love the photo of all your gang in the big chair. Hope the planning for next year’s holiday is straightforward. Good luck with your awareness day. The zebra picture is eye catching and I’m sure will make an impact. #wotw

    Your holiday for next year sounds lovely. You have a lot of time to prepare so I do hope that helps your anxiety to lower and you can enjoy it 🙂 All the best for your awareness day, I hope you’re hard work pays off!! #WotW

    Good luck with the Butlins holiday. You don’t sound keen at all.
    I hope the kids have gone back to school OK….
    I will keep an eye out for the tweets about Stiff Person Syndrome awareness day. It sounds like you are very well prepared for everything.

    I have never been on a Butlins holiday and am not sure if it would appeal but you have plenty of time to find a great site with the necessary adaptations you need.
    My 12 year old has bigger feet than me now. She is a size 7! I hope they stop growing soon because larger sizes can be hard to find.
    Good luck with rising awareness. I have to be honest I know very little about stiff person syndrome. The pictures with info blasts on them sound like a very effective tactic. The zebra one is very eye catching and sure to gain attention #wotw

    I think if you will start saving now you can have that dream holiday next year! I am lucky to have other Moms giving me their old uniforms as my son is the smallest in school. I just need to buy school shoes for my son and we are ready! #wotw

    You will do an amazing job raising awareness Anne I am looking forward to seeing what you do. Butlins seems to have really re modernised over the last couple of years have you seen those lake houses they look fab. I bet Boo is going to be really tall? Both our boys have huge feet, and Jack is so much taller than Chris and I and I can see Joe going the same way x

    Hi Anne, oh no! A Butlins Holiday after the lovely time you had in Exmouth! It’s a shame, but if the family are happy then it will all work out okay and you have plenty of time to prepare (is there ever such a thing?)… This is the first year I’ve not had children going back to school and I have to admit I’m loving the thought. Even with older children, there is so much to do and it’s never cheap, decent shoes especially (fingers crossed that Boo & Stars feet have stopped growing now)… I’d never heard of Stiff Persons Syndrome before I ‘met’ you. I can’t think of anyone more cut out for helping to raise awareness than someone with the condition and in this day and age raising awareness for things has never been easier, if people take the time to click and learn. If you tag me in some of the tweets I don’t mind retweeting, life will be slowing down again by then and I’ll have more time for things like social media and blogging.

    Thank you for linking up with #keepingitreal.
