It's been 5 months since my ACL reconstruction surgery and progress is good. My surgeon has now sent me on my merry way as he is pleased with my progress and today I received the green light from the physio to commence interval training again (straight line jogging only). And it looks as if tennis may be closer than I first expected too - can you tell I'm excited?
It's now been 5 months since my ACL reconstruction surgery. Find out how my ACL recovery is going and what I'm doing to get back into sport.

While I'm not at all crafty I do have my moments. Like the time I made a Minecraft Stamoy head in 7 easy steps. Trust me, if I could make this, anyone can! #craft #parenting #Minecraft
Somehow I found myself doing Minecraft craft last week. I have to admit, crafty Kirsty doing Minecraft is not a pretty sight, my friends!

It's hard when you just can't turn off and relax. But that seems to come with the territory of being an autism parent.
I have suffered the constant & underlying stress of autism parenting for nearly 12 years now. It's hard but at least I can recognise what's happening now.

I've had a few inquiries about how to start the autism diagnosis process recently so I thought it was time to write a post in reply. If you know someone who could benefit from this, please share x

Do you have TV shows that you consider a guilty pleasure to watch? I have several (although I'm supposed to be limiting my TV viewing...oops...) and I'm sharing them today as part of #imustconfess. Feel free to add your thoughts or linkup a post x
Do you have any guilty TV pleasures? I think it's time we all get ours off our chests, feel less shame & get back to our binge-watching ways!

#imustconfess is live for another week. Link up your confessions, particularly those about your guilty TV pleasures. Or get anything else off your chest. It really is easy and fun!

Do you have a child with more than one diagnosis? If so, how do you equally deal with the needs of different, complex and sometimes opposite diagnoses?
It's the dilemma of the dual diagnosis. How can you equally deal with the needs of different, complex and sometimes opposite diagnoses?

Introduction
Kirsty Russell is a blogger and writer from Newcastle NSW. Last year, after a health scare, she accepted a redundancy from her public service position of nearly 20 years and is now making a new career for herself working from home. Current projects include drafting a guide to help other special needs parents based on over 10 years of personal experience and developing a podcast to further provide support to parents with kids with special needs. Her two blogs are My Home Truths (where she chronicles her life as well as her experiences as a special needs parent) and Smarter Happier (where, together with her husband, she writes about their experiences trying to make manageable and meaningful change to lead a more family centric and happier life).

I recently completed Kate's 10 day SEO Challenge. I've been blogging for nearly 5 years and thought I knew a fair bit about SEO but even in her free course, Kate was able to share information that I genuinely learned and benefited from. I would definitely recommend this challenge for bloggers and business owners overwhelmed by the very thought of SEO and will be looking to take on her full SEO course in 2016.
