Story of Mum


I'm a mum and

So today has been pretty cool.  First I got an email from this great Arts Centre I approached about the new charity and exhibition space and I got a pretty great response: they could not be trustees owing to the local council upping their rent by 110% and needing to […]

Charity Begins at Home


“What an odd blog title” I may hear you say.  Well not really when you understand the context.  No, I’m not really some misanthropic person who wants to end all do-gooding.  On the contrary I am setting up a charity due to my son’s disability.   It occurred to me […]

Get Involved with your Community


So I have been a bit quiet again of late.  This is because as well as feeling very poorly, I have also been mega-busy.  I finally have a new portfolio (not finished yet) up and running. You can find it here: badhofbauer.com I’ve joined a local co-operative and this morning […]

Jenny

I do not usually take part in blog link ups.  It’s not that I have anything against them, I don’t.  It’s just I’m not a very  “bloggy” person.  Now this seems ridiculous as I ran a blog alongside Little Doers before costs (the cost to me) made me take the […]

FREE NOISE TRAFFIC LIGHT SYSTEM


FREE NOISE TRAFFIC LIGHTS FOR ASD

I have been looking up various things to help with my autistic son’s behaviour of late and came upon the idea of traffic lights systems.  The problem is that for what these things are, essentially a laminated piece of card with a traffic light image and some words on, the […]

Step in Vegan


Ok so I never thought I would become a vegan, I tried being a vegetarian once but that did not go very well.  I was 13 and my parents had let me see a rather inappropriate film called “Parents”. Now I do not know if you have any experience of […]

The Holiday


To most people a holiday is a time to relax, to idle away the hours and forget about your stresses. That’s most people. The parent of an autistic has a somewhat different experience. It all starts rightly enough, you convince yourself this time will be different, you can forego the […]

“I hate everybody in the whole planet”


I love my autistic son.  He cracks me up so much, it took me over 30 years to become a bit of a misanthrope but he has managed it in under 5. Today has been a bit of a shitty day for him.  We are going away tomorrow and so […]
