This year, the Cambridge Science Festival celebrated their 25th Anniversary. They also hosted a hands-on at the Guildhall: autism-friendly hour!
In 2018, Myself (designated driver), my partner and my son drove to Hampton Court Palace for their Food Festival. We strategically booked tickets to attend the last day of the event, which was on a Sunday. (The last day of the festival, hence not as busy).
As we arrived at the National Space Centre, we saw this magnificent Space Shuttle Intelsat Satellite Cradle in front of the museum. There was also a pioneer statue at the front.
What do we love about Brighton? It is a place of fun and diversity, and when we arrive, there is just a feeling of liberation. Also, my son finds it soothing to be by the sea.
In 2019, my partner decided to surprise me and treat us to a couple’s weekend vacation to see The Roman Baths in Bath.
I enjoy writing about many topics, and one I was looking forward to blogging more about was our days out. Well, it is safe to say that that idea is on hold.
I had an idea. To write a series on a few of our days out from the past.
Today is Rare Disease Day 2021, a day to raise awareness about rare diseases and the lived experiences. Likewise, as part of rare disease day recognition, the theme of this year is rare is many, rare is strong, rare is proud.
The half-term holiday is now over, and today we have entered back into the routine of school. During the holidays, we brainstormed ideas and activities to do at home while in lockdown.
Trying to parent, educate and dedicate time to look after one’s wellbeing during lockdown has been a challenge. I have been prioritising my child’s needs yet have moments of forgetting mine.
My son wanted to try a different style of art, thus decided to focus on Steampunk art. Steampunk art draws inspiration from the industrial revolution, which started in Great Britain and was more prominent during the Victorian era.
A recurring theme throughout our blog is art. For us, art allows us to use what motivates and inspires us to create artwork. So what better way to explore different art forms then to set up an art studio at home.
Spending a lot more time indoors (lately) has made me take more notice of my home environment.
So, I have decided to make a list of my top 5 things to do in 2021 during these strange times:
First of all, I would like to say well done to all the bloggers who uploaded content this year. I, at times, found it challenging to motivate myself to blog about our experiences.
Today is New Year’s Eve 2020, and to recap this unusual year, I have chosen an unusual image to go with this blog.
I decided to look back at 2020 the best way I know how, by writing a poem.
As you may have noticed, my website has undergone a makeover! I even have a tagline: “Arts and Crafts, Autism and Life.”
Being judged for being yourself and made to feel like it was a bad thing for decades forces you to go into survival mode. You then learn techniques to adapt and become socially conditioned by your external environment
My son chose three plastic skeleton figures when he was shopping with his dad last year. For some strange reason, the figure on the right reminds me of the Skeksis character from Dark Crystal.
I am not feeling healthy at the moment but am focused on making sure I take, the steps to improve my health.
