About me

I’m Nicky. I’m 37 years old (just!) and am the proud mother of Lilly, my 6 year old daughter who has cerebral palsy affecting all four limbs and epilepsy.

This blog will mainly be about special needs, parenting a child with special needs and its highs and lows. My aim is to keep it positive and compassionate but also reflective of what the dark times can be like. There will also be the odd horse related post so I apologise for that in advance but both Lilly and I are a bit horse mad so it’s inevitable I’m afraid! 

My intentions for this blog are honourable. I want it to be a place for other parents in my situation, who might sometimes feel alone in this special needs bubble, to find some solace and solidarity.

We are one tribe.
