After sending the nice email to the Head, I have had an email telling me that if DD2 doesn't turn up at either the new school or the old school tomorrow, she'll pass on the information to the legal team and I'll be fined.

I've phoned the Inclusion Office and told them the situation. They're going to write a note on the database that I've informed them DD2 has a new school place from Monday and is visiting the school tomorrow, that I have bought uniform and am registered on their 'parentmail' system.

She's really going for me, isn't she?

Well, that sounds positive. Hoping dd is enjoying her new school.

Oh Lougle! Did you narrowly miss a caring carrotology?

i.e. 'Don't worry, everything will be alright' and then when it all falls apart in the future pretend to have never heard of you?

Phew.

Well, I would have done, if I hadn't been a regular at the SN Tavern.

DD2 was in the playground today and a girl from her new class said her name. DD2 just looked at her, turned around and started using the hopscotch. I heard her childminder say 'don't worry, when she gets to know you she might say hello'. I called DD2 over, said 'x said hello to you, say hello.', then once the girls were stood together I said to the CM 'DD2 isn't so good at the social side of things yet. She doesn't realise that when people say hello, that she should say it back.' The CM was lovely and said 'well x is the opposite, so she'll be kind and help her.'

oooh, 3 cheers for x

How lovely, both the little girl who remembered dd's name and the CM.

Oh Lougle that sounds so lovely.

DD2 actually said to me today "Mummy, I have a new friend called x"

She also saw her cousin who is having chemo and so only comes to school sometimes. It was so sweet, they were jumping up and down, hugging in the playground.
