Days out: Undley Farm Pumpkin Patch, Suffolk

Today we went to Undley Farm for their yearly Pumpkin Patch adventure. This is our fourth year of going and it didn’t disappointment. Each year it seems to get bigger and bigger… Undley Farm is near Lakenheath in Suffolk. It’s easy enough to find with a sat nav and there are signs dotted about. I…

Days Out for under £20: Planet Laser (Suffolk)

Today was the first proper rainy day we’ve had all summer. It was definitely an ‘indoor day’. Soft play was out of the question as it would be rammed and frankly I didn’t want to pay a fortune. Swimming was the same. So we went to J’s favourite place…Planet Laser. The reason I love Planet…

Days out: Suffolk Super Con 2018…Sci-fi lovers paradise!

We’ve just got back from spending the morning at Suffolk Super Con 2018. This is the first convention J has ever been too but as you know from our post about J’s obsession with Star Wars, we couldn’t miss this! I asked J who he’d like to dress up as. He obviously chose Kylo Ren….

Autism and Festivals: A day out at Strawberry Fair, Cambridge…

Today is one of my favourite days of the year…the first Saturday of June. This means it was Strawberry Fair! I have been to Cambridge’s Strawberry Fair almost every year since I was 18. When I was younger it was all about the music, having drinks with friends and exploring the crafts stalls (including finding…

Review: Stonham Barns Soft Play (Suffolk)

Today we went off to explore a new soft play centre. I have been wanting to visit Stonham Barns for ages. We only had time to visit the soft play today but Stonham Barns has so much. It’s like it’s own little village. The centre itself was easy to find and had a secure entry…

Our Christmas visit to the cathedral & making memories with Lego.

J hasn’t quite found his Christmas spirit yet. This is the first year he’s been old enough to really be aware of what it really is. He’s struggled with the changes such as decorations. It’s take most of December to be able to cope with two sets of lights and some decorations hung on the…

Surviving The Christmas Fayre 🎄

Today we went to see Grandma and have a look around the Christmas Fayre. I always love this day as it’s the start of the Christmassy feelings. The music, colours, lights and food are enough to get me feeling like a little girl again.  It’s a BIG fayre and takes over pretty much the whole…

Tips for surviving fireworks with a child with Autism…

Last year J was having nothing to do with the whole fireworks celebrations. We had to leave last years display after a few minutes as J was really struggling. Back then we didn’t know J had Autism (although I had an inkling) so I just thought he didn’t like it in general.  This year I…

Milkshake Live: The Magic Story…

Milkshake TV has been in our lives for a loooooong time. When J was little(r) and would be awake at 6am I would bring him in bed with me, put on Channel 5 and snooze a bit longer.  Current favourites are: Blaze and the Monsters Machines, Fireman Sam, Whispa and Paw Patrol. However, his most…
