At the weekends we didn’t really do much apart from escaping to Holland-on-Sea for a walk. This was so that Ethan could let off some steam at his favourite place. In the middle of October Ethan started to cough. Sometimes Ethan will cough as one of his autistic stims but he was coughing every hour. As this continued into the next day we thought it best to follow government guidelines and order Ethan a Covid-19 test. In August I was randomly selected to take…

    Our Halloween Afternoon Tea Treat

    To help celebrate our Halloween at home I ordered us another afternoon tea from the Cardamon Tea Lounge. I ordered one to help celebrate Ethan’s 10th birthday in lock-down. This time the lovely lady from Cardamon was creating Hocus Pocus kids boxes. I ordered two for the children and special afternoon tea treat boxes for us adults as her scones are amazing.

Our choice of filling was ham, no butter for Ethan. There was also a chocolate…

    Spooky Bingo At High Woods Country Park

    After last year’s October half term full of adventures this year had to be more home-based. Facebook events made me aware that our country park would be running their Halloween Walk again. This was something we did with Ethan when he was four and haven’t had the chance to do it again. So it was high on my list of things to do with the kids this half-term. With new wellies recently purchased for the kids, we made our way to our country park to take part in the Spooky Bingo. Playing Spooky Bingo This year there were two trails to choose from. One for older children and the other…
