Happy Saturday one and all! Isn't it nice to see the sun shining again? It certainly makes everything seem a bit brighter. Although, it is 100% that time of year now when whatever outfit you choose to wear is wrong and you either end up mafting or freezing - there is no middle ground. T … Continue reading Setting the date.
“Pretty good odds” to prevent the one armed man.
Hi! I hope everyone is well. My plea for 2023 to sort it's shit out hasn't really gone to plan so far, albeit things are beginning to look a bit brighter as we leave February behind (or F***y February as I have affectionately coined it this year). Just after our last update we received the … Continue reading “Pretty good odds” to prevent the one armed man.
Pox, Plague and Purple Legs
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE RILEYS!!! We hope you had the most magical of times. We did. We had one of the loveliest Christmas's I think we've ever had. It was full to the brim with smiles, laughter, family, some questionable knock off Amaretto and lot's and lot's of love. Before you all start being … Continue reading Pox, Plague and Purple Legs
Teenage kicks and Positive Pants
Holy moly I've been slacking on the updates recently! I was convinced that my last post was in May... turns out it was in February and that is not the same as May... So, strap yourselves in for a catch up of epic proportions! Firstly, WE GOT ON A PLANE AND WENT ON HOLIDAY. For … Continue reading Teenage kicks and Positive Pants
60 degrees too far.
Hello, and 'Happy New Year'! (I'm aware that I'm about 37 days late with that one, but the sentiment is there) Since our last update, a fair bit has happened. Mainly, to our house... and to the retinas of our neighbours as they have had 3 months worth of pyjama clad cooking in the garage … Continue reading 60 degrees too far.
Ding Ding! Round 2020
Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any worse, BOOM! Lockdown 2.0, and Sean Connery taken from us (RIP Sir Sean). What a bloody crackers year this has become. Since our last update, we've had a fair few developments in old Family Riley. The first being that T has now started his new Secondary School! … Continue reading Ding Ding! Round 2020
Carol Vorderman is my hero, but a fall can derail your day.
We sacked off home schooling today. Sorry to T’s teachers who will read this 😬 The day started well. Bit of Maths Factor (thank you Carol Vorderman you absolute Goddess and maths legend) and T completed a new topic. But, he then stood up and had a nasty fall in his room... which resulted in … Continue reading Carol Vorderman is my hero, but a fall can derail your day.
Disordered Not Drunk
Happy September 25th! Today is International Ataxia Awareness Day - aka the PERFECT day for a new blog post! As you will remember, if you read my previous blog post, I - the Walrus - was waiting for the impending (LATE) arrival of Baby Riley. And, if you follow our social media pages on Facebook … Continue reading Disordered Not Drunk
What do you follow – the heart or the head?
Well I am currently sat in the most cross-seasonal outfit ever (autumn dress with summer sandals for anyone interested), and realised that its been quite a while since our last update. So I thought I would remedy that. We've had a relatively quiet summer holidays so far - the impending arrival of mini Riley (who … Continue reading What do you follow – the heart or the head?
A wheelie emotional farewell…
Well. This week has been one of high emotion for young Mr T. On Monday we went for a wheelchair review, as the old Mean Machine is now almost contorting his newly elongated frame (seriously, he looks like Mr Fantastic from the Fantastic 4 nowadays - he's SO TALL). He has a slight curvature of … Continue reading A wheelie emotional farewell…
