Special Needs and Legal Entitlement: Light Reading Material

April 15, 2016

My first book review since English literature lessons at school is hereby presented before you.  Fortunately, from my perspective at least, any red pen marks will remain purely implied rather than indelibly scrolled across my scribblings.  Feedback may praise or cast folly over my work but at least this time my words may ultimately help… Read More ›

Are Bullies Allowed? No ABA for Lucky Monster Today Sir, Thank You!

We all love a little common sense. Quick to judge and point out the errors of another’s ways, resorting to the ‘common sense’ mantra. Sometimes the argument is petty, the viewpoint simplistic to the point of folly, but no matter, humans have never been one to shy away from offering their humble opinion to all… Read More ›

A quick visit to the shop…

Local green grocers through to behemoth superstores, separated only by the number of stock items they hold, present a list of fears. Toddler tantrums, despised chore for those seeking solace on the lush, green fairways of the local 18-hole establishment, or overcrowding during holiday season, a plethora of excuses, whims and pains grab the jugular… Read More ›

We called him Lucky

Naming a child is a privilege. Apparently, judging by some of the choices taken, not a privilege deserving of the greatest consideration and respect in all circumstances. Contemplation not misplaced when presented with ‘Fish ‘n’ Chips’, and ‘ABCD’, to quote some examples worthy of further ponder. When a tiny mess of calmness, and a carefully… Read More ›
