Best of #ablogginggoodtime July

Dear friend,

Welcome to the "best of...#ablogginggoodtime."  Katie and I are overwhelmed by the number of fantastic posts linked up each week and in an effort to give something back I decided to run a monthly feature to showcase some of the brilliant bloggers who regularly link up with us.

The diversity of posts linked up every month is amazing...everything from recipes to poems and lists, heartfelt and inspiring stories to hilarious tales and brilliant tips. Thank you so much! I know that we both struggle every week to pick out a featured post.

Weekly Roundup #28

Dear friend,

Welcome to my weekly roundup an opportunity to look back at the moments that have made our week extra special. I love the saying: Enjoy the little things in life because one day you'll look back and realise they were the big things... This post enables me to focus on the little things and see that even in the difficult weeks there is always something to be thankful for. I love capturing the ordinary moments and special times with my camera, looking at our life through a lens gives me a clearer perspective.

IG Roundup from this week

Words of Wisdom

I love quotes. Every weekend I like to share a special quote in a post that I call Words of Wisdom. I have been sharing these quotes since May 2015 but I have decided to move the series over to my IG page instead of having them on Diary of an Imperfect Mum. This will be my last quote post here. I hope you will join me over on IG

 Here is my favourite quote this week:


Text we rise my lifting others written in white in black background

Are we hiding behind Autism?

Dear friend,

It seems like everyone has heard of autism it has become a hot topic over the last few years. We have awareness months, programs on the TV, documentaries, news stories, benefits, concerts, even an Autism's got talent contest... In 2015 the National Autistic Society carried out a YouGov poll and found that more than 99.5% of people in the UK had heard of autism... A brilliant achievement!

BUT... In the same YouGov poll just 16% of autistic people and their families said that the public had a meaningful understanding of autism. A massive contrast that shows us we still have a way to go in promoting acceptance. So are we hiding behind 'Autism'?
