How I am Coping As A Late Diagnosed Autistic Person

How I coping with being a later in life autistic person I think ok except for a few extenuating factors which are out my control.

What happens when you lose yourself in a murk of a situation that's beyond your control a situation where you're not just being left alone where it a a very close to home issue , it is hard but I am wading through treacle and the moment and I am clutching back control.The situation is not going to go away but I am the one who says what is acceptable to me , I don't mean to be evasive but it is a family situation and I was on the brink of absolute collapse.

Even if I wasn't Autistic I would find the situation very hard to cope with , you see when you're autistic sitautions can overwhelm you and clog your sensory processing you simply don't have the energy to think , move or breath you're swamped.And of late I am have snapped and I am a very calm person but when your buttons are pushed and pushed you reach that point where you say no more I need to be me.

And on the subject of being me I have so missed the funny me the serious me the humorous me the whimsical me in a nutshell me. Myself I love being me and the though of being me again fills me with absolute pleasure as now I feel kiddy as a kipper though that situation is still there like and I can't control that.

What I love about me is the ability to be me and I’m very unique indeed, I’ve got to not key thing drag me down and that’s easier said than fond of late.

What I do absolutely love is the ability to talk to people on line I truly think it’s one of my life lines.And people messaging to see how I am is very much appreciated and it doesn’t make me feel overwhelmed.

Cats Need Boxes

Cats need boxes or do boxes need cats ? I feel I only stuff for the box it really is like I’m my cats dealer.If there’s a box then there’s a cat to fill it as the magical lure of an empty box is just to strong for any cat .The size of the cat doesn’t matter and neither just the box as there is no such thing as the correct cat to box ratio

For what is a cat without a box just like Batman without Robin and Superman and Lois Lane.A cat may be more slightly Genghis Khan on occasions and voluntarily plot your downfall or maybe just on purpose!

Constantly waiting for an opportunity to bring about your demise ...

When you don’t win an argument...

When you’re trying to play it coy about wanting something..

A Very Unbreakfast to me !

Ever had a un meal ?
No you say ?

I believe that everyone should have an un meal once in a while.

What is my meal this afternoon ?

It is an "unbreakfast" why stick with convention , you are only constrained with your food if you think about it !

Take my day today : an uninspiring breakfast , a pub lunch of a simple which took them absolutely ages to bring to my table . The knock on effect of this was it meant it was to late to do my planned tea , so what to do?

Looking at my Alice in Wonderland tea cups I instantly knew ; a "Mad Hatters tea party" I cried . I always adore to put my own spin on events so thereupon a "Mad Hatters Tea Party" became a "very unbreakfast to me" instead of a very "unbirthday to me" as the Mad Hatter cried at his tea party.

Alas no butter was added to the pocket watch and neither was it dunked into the tea as I very much doubt Mr T would have let that happen to his prized pocket watch ! though there could have been a sleepy door mouse in the tea pot.

This un breakfast includes croissants,muffins and butter from Morrisons ,  I applied to Britmums to be one of their #Morrisonsmum, they also have #MorrisonDads . We were asked to shop at out local store for a Bank Holiday shop and were given £80 worth of vouchers to do so. 

Today was my new start, I 'd shopped before going away to a blogging conference from Saturday till Sunday  and I knew that Mr T wouldn't starve due to Morrisons new prices and so I was able to get more food for my money. While I was away Mr T had cooked himself chicken Kiev , new potatoes and fresh carrots but had he taken a photo no ( I shall be hitting him with a big big spoon as that will hurt more )

"This is the start of a new cheaper Morrisons.

From today, we’ve cut the prices on over a thousand of your favourite products. Not temporary reductions or supermarket smoke and mirrors, these are new every day low prices on the things you buy every week. So you’ll notice the difference with every shop.

And although we’re cutting prices, we’re not cutting corners. You can check our pricing at

You’ll still get award-winning meat and fish, still get trained butchers and bakers, still get the best of fresh on Market Street and still get friendly Morrisons service.

Look out for the yellow markers when you shop in store and online If it says I’m cheaper you know it’s staying cheaper.

Rievaulx abbey

We chase perfection in our lives and so very very often it’s right there before our very eyes and I question what is perfection at time and the truth of it there is no real perfection escepailly in nature as nature does not conform to what we think of as perfection. I notice so much when I am in and I stood transfixed the other day at rievaulx abbey when a swirl of brown leaves went by in a very sleek mistral and it was magical somewhat ethereal you might say.There was no rain it was a crisp clear day with a touch of both warm and coolness in the air with them both buffering each other in the fight of the of temperatures.The noblest and most epic of battles with neither side winning in such a location as an Abbey there is an air of calm , the stillness of calm transitioning over the centuries.

This is why I truly love my English Heritage membership it affords me such treasures as this.And now my husband has a new camera he’s completely in his element in such magical settings.

I think you can have a electronic guide round the place we weren’t offered this but it didn’t matter as we love to wander at our own pace.

It is a very beautiful and calm place to visit and I am very much in need of calm in my life at the moment , there are is many photo opportunities round the place it is somewhere I will defiantly come back to .

Looking For King Size Bedding


There are many ways to give your bedroom a new look from painting and wallpapering to changing the light fittings and curtains perhaps but there is nothing better than nice new bedding. Changing your bedding is the easier option for a new look and I have recently gone through all my old bedding and donated the ones I no longer want to charity etc. I have a king sized bed and I am always looking out for good deals on king-size bedding and this is where Yorkshire Linen comes in as they offer Kingsize quilts in multiples colours and patterns at amazing prices.

I really do think that good quality bedding does make your bedroom a calming and welcoming space and that is what both my husband and I need after a busy day. He gets up very early so I do get to enjoy the bed a little longer than he does and it also means I don't have to fight with the duvet either! We are thinking of moving our son who is at university into one of the other larger bedrooms and of course, that means a new bed and new bedding when they are university the costs never stop coming!

I have had a good look myself at Yorkshire Bedding and I am astonished at the wide choice there is so I know where I will be going to when we either need bedding for ourselves or more our son. You really do have to like the bedding you put on your bed because you spend a lot of your life in bed and you need to be comfortable and relaxed.
