The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened In March & April

Wow! May! It feels like one hell of a year already! I’ve been a little bit quiet on the blog front the last couple of months, what with working from home, being a teacher and trying to maintain some kind of exercise it’s been a touch few months. I had a few posts written but given the pandemic that we are currently in the middle of, it didn’t feel right to share my holiday packing tips or my top recommendations for a weekend away with the girls when most people are having their holidays postponed or cancelled including our own spring break. I wanted to share with you how we are getting on during this covid-19 so this is The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened in March & April.

Coronavirus: Lockdown 2020 with a Special Needs Child

Now, you are probably expecting me to be one of those extremely organised parents that has a full structured timetable and a routine. I wish that were true! So here we are Convid-19 or coronavirus as it is also known, we are in self-isolating mode and lockdown with a special needs child. Didn’t see that on my list of 2020.

The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened in February

You may have or may not have noticed that I did in fact skip January, as I had nothing exciting to write about and rather than talking nonsense, thought it was better to skip ahead to February. So What Happened In February?

Have You Ever Heard of Strep B? This is Our Story

It’s hard to explain the feeling of being told that your baby is ill and not just your average cold but life-threatening, the closest I can describe it is numb. Everything stands still and for a brief moment it feels like your life is at a standstill, it’s not real. You are having a bad dream and any minute your alarm will sound and normality will resume. Have you ever heard of Strep B? This us our story.

The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened in December

Happy New Year! Wow, the end of yet another decade and the start of what hopefully will be a good year. I ended 2009 a working mum of one and by early 2010, I was pregnant with our little monster. What a decade it has been. This post is What Happened in December with a mini look over the last 10 years.

The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened In November

How can it be December? I mean last time I checked it was April and I was counting down the days until our summer holiday, now the Christmas countdown has begun! It’s not exactly Blogmas, but I thought I’d have a little change of pace today. This is what happened in November.

How Accessible is Paulton’s Park/Peppa Pig World?

I’ve made it my mission this year to check out UK based attractions and write about how accessible they are to a special needs child. Thomas is a child who not only has challenging and unpredictable behaviour. In September, we visited Paultons Park near Romsey to answer the question of how accessible is Paulton’s Park/Peppa Pig World?

The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened In September

Back to school is never an easy transition. New classes, new teachers, remembering to go to a different classroom and that’s just the parents! This year saw Alana embark on year eight and Thomas embark on year four which also makes him a badger.

The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened In August

Back in July, I posted ‘What Happened in July’. It’s something that I feel I want to continue with for the few months. I do have plans to grow it into more of an email newsletter type thing but for now please check out What Happened In August. The summer holidays, Disneyland Paris, family time and blogging.
