Hi, Im Dawn.
I am a 30 something😉 Married Mummy; juggling two boys (1 with Autism), wifey / housey stuff while still trying to be me!
I live in Yorkshire, England with my Best Friend and Husband of
14 years 17yrs now and our two wonderful Children Wriggler and Bruiser.
Our Eldest son is called ‘Wriggler’. He’s a very energetic
7yr old 10yr old now!! and a born creator and communicator. He loves art and crafts and wants to be an inventor when he grows up and live in a lighthouse! He most definitely is one of life’s little talkers😉 Wriggler is a very loving big brother.
Our youngest son is ‘Bruiser’. He’s
3yrs old 6 now!!! Another energetic little boy who loves life. Bruiser loves cars and most other transport vehicles and is OBSESSED with Space and Rockets. He is very proficient in using Makaton and it was once his primary method of communication. He is now verbal and making up for all those years where he wasn’t!! Bruiser is Autistic; after a very long, 4 yr journey, we finally got his diagnosis in July 2015.
What about me?
I’m currently on a career break while I bring up my boys. Previously I worked as a Legal Executive but i’m hoping to return to work one day in a school setting working with children with special educational needs. I’m already very proficient in the use of Makaton for which I have attended their beginners and Enhanced courses. I have also attended and been accredited on many Speech and Language therapy courses over the years, inc Elklan. This last year alone I have done the NAS Earlybird Plus course.
Mmmm what else?….
I love being outdoors with the kids, days out, walking, going to the park, I love the seaside.
*whispers* I actually quite like cleaning and doing house work! shhhhhh
I try to keep myself fit but I wont lie and say I try very hard at that😉
Food, I LOVE food. I LOVE chocolate too!!
Football is my favorite sport and I am a huge fan of Sheffield Wednesday FC. F1 rocks too!
Music, I will listen to most genres but I am a Rock chick at heart. Def Leppard, Bonjovi and Guns and Roses do it for me!
Oh and I’m a cake maker!! This is something I’ve started up in the last two years, it keeps me ‘sane’ while the boys are at school! You can check out my cakes here and also on my Facebook page TheIcingOnTheCake
So that’s enough about me. What about you? Connect with me here, Id love to hear from you
