Disabled Parenting Problems: This Might Become A Series

6th January 2019

OK, so. You know when you’re in holiday mode and every day feels like a Sunday? You’re craving a piece of fruit, but you have a whole bag of Skittles instead? Your clothes are tight for no good reason, you’re getting back to your routine, and you’re feeling a little depressed? Hi. Who’s with me? Happy New Year. I previously declared that 2019 will be the year of Shenanigans. That’s still true, but it’s also the week of candy, and…

A Day In Dundee: Nostalgia & Penguins

22nd August 2018

There’s this interesting thing about me. The best part of any holiday or vacation or fuckskioffski or whatever you call it, is the night before you leave. That and Day One. Round about Day Two or Three, I’m already thinking of ways to extend the trip. Because I am a wanderluster like that. And as we approached the middle of our Edinburgh road trip, I got to thinking.

My Mother Has A Condition

9th April 2018

Our most recent family road-trip was a weekend in St. Andrews.  We were up with the birds on all the days. We actually loaded the car on Friday, after a coffee with my Dad in honor of my Grandma’s birthday, and I (humbly?) shouted from the blog-tops about the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards. Baked potatoes and cheese for breakfast on the road, which Isla and I actually paraded in front of cheese-phobic Neil.  (She may look like him, but she’s…

Lanterns In The Rain

13th January 2018

There was a road-trip to Edinburgh while Mom was here.  Of course.  And the three of us go to the zoo whenever we get the chance.  I’d wanted to Isla to see the Giant Lanterns of China since they arrived at the zoo.  And I thought taking my Mom would be a chance to make some groovy memories. Except the trails were too much walking for Mom so she couldn’t come.  The zoo did offer Mom a wheelchair, but with…
