Something we are seriously considering if we lose the tribunal. We have moved lots as DH was in the armed forces. Really hoped this was the last move but things have changed so much now.

Yes, I agree probably no need and I thought a bit if I should post, and then thought a bit more and thought there was a possibility that I should. Because I know when it's at the edge, when there's nobody, but you, these sorts of forums really help, because you know it's not just you after all. Just wanted to keep this conversation a bit more open that's all. And no, I wouldn't report such a trivial thing to HQ, we are ladies after all.

<ahem> not me...

Lol!!

float by all means keep responding to the OP's topic. But just don't expect others to feel obliged to.

Not sure I understand the stuff about being on the edge. Are you okay?

I've been pondering for a few days now and I think that I will move anyway. My time here has come to an end. There's nothing really to keep us here and my daughter is struggling a bit at school. School was fab when we first joined, then became an academy, lots of new children joined, in 2 years gone from a 4 classes to 6. My daughter has dyslexia so struggles. Her class teacher admitted at last parents evening a few weeks ago that she forgets my daughter is in the class so does get overlooked.mi know my daughter is struggling but is keeping it under wraps. She sometimes leaves me little notes around house as a cry for help. The place I want to move to has a village school with 30 kids in it which would be much better for her. If I lose the tribunal I will also lose my younger sons 1:1 at play schemes at he won't be eligible but the play schemes won't take him without 1:1. If I move then that doesn't become an issue - I will lose my direct payments but the amount I will save in petrol will cover that so can pay it ourselves plus we will be living in the countryside with lovely field views. I know my daughter is unhappy but I know she is also carrying the burden of what's happened with her elder brothers. I promised her once we had sorted out the tribunal, she will become my main focus again and I think the move will be best for her.
