Never started one before - barring a mistake once when I started one on a Thursday during the holidays. blush

Hoping I haven't crossed with someone else now.

Roll up, roll up ... share yer woes, celebrations, congratulations and/or commiserations - but don't forget the chocolate. grin

Slow typing.

Sign - well done! And poor DH.

signandsmile Fri 01-Mar-13 19:21:54

thanks guys... I know he is struggling with it, altho as he groaned with pain over dinner ds said 'i get you a glass of water daddy', and then later when dh was led on the floor after another fall said 'i pray for you daddy, Lord make daddy pain go away, amen' (had both dh and I all teary eyed...

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 01-Mar-13 19:22:48

Oh dear, Taggie. Thank goodness it was a mock? Hoping it wasn't a module...

SallyBear Fri 01-Mar-13 19:23:13

Taggie that sounds like my twins! Drives me demented!

Sign sorry about your DH. That's tough.

Hazey enjoy the wine, after having four kids at home its a prerequisite. grin

hazeyjane Fri 01-Mar-13 19:26:21

Sign, that is so lovely. Very hard for all of you.

BaggyKnickers Fri 01-Mar-13 19:26:47

Ellenjane I've been fighting a lot iykwim wink
I'll stop name-changing soon and stick with one but just have to get a few more 'difficulties' out of the way.

TaggieCampbellBlack Fri 01-Mar-13 19:28:04

Just a mock.

I sudpect it might be deliberate so she has to do the science diploma rather than the 3 separate ones.

I am ver cross.

hazeyjane Fri 01-Mar-13 19:29:04

Sallybear - taking all of them to Waitrose cafe for babycinos (how mumsnet do I sound!) has aged me by about 10 years, one woman asked me if they were triplets!!!

SallyBear Fri 01-Mar-13 19:46:00

Hahaha! Hazey - Brave woman. I find McDs bad enough for ice cream! And I am used to four!!

NoHaudinMaWheest Fri 01-Mar-13 19:48:25

Moose and Ellen good news about schools.

Sign sorry about DH that's hard. Well done on the assignments.

Polter glad the nature thing is working out. Good luck with the SA.

Hazey good that Ds is a bit better. Three six year olds ouch.

Sally that sounds a really difficult decision to make.

Nothing major here. Ds got his interview date for 6th form. I'm not sure how important it is or if it is a formality and getting in really depends on GCSE results. It is a month away but I am quite nervous as it is the first time he will have to do anything like this on his own.
Dd has been in the school production this week. She surprised everyone but being a very effective grumpy housekeeper (Mabel in Fantastic Mr Fox). She is normally very quite and restrained.

Taggie the mock result might be a wake up call. My Ds's bad results at the end of yr 10 convinced that he did need to use the scribe after all.

PolterGoose Fri 01-Mar-13 19:57:08

Well done NoHaudin's dd and early good luck for ds thanks

Good luck with the SA Polter

Sign sorry about DH. Hope you get a workable plan.

Ah great news about schools for lots of us.

PolterGoose Fri 01-Mar-13 19:59:49

Taggie hoping dd can get it together for the real exams, like NoHaudin says this might be a lesson learned for her

Moose Hope you get to the bottom of the illness quickly.

Good luck with the redidential baggie

Taggie I expect your dd will end up okay tbh. She sounds like when she applies herself she can pull it off.

marchduck Fri 01-Mar-13 20:01:44

Hello everyone, I'm glad it's Friday, and the first day of spring as well - over here anyway!
DD seems to be initiating speech a bit more, which is great. She was watching TV earlier, and an advert came on featuring a cute baby. She said "Mummy buy a baby please". Not a chance of another baby in this house though!
Hope you all have a good weekend.

PolterGoose Fri 01-Mar-13 20:02:07

Thanks Star it is highly unlikely they'll agree to SA and I don't think I have the knowledge or time to take it further. Ds's needs should be easily met under SA+ hmm

PolterGoose Fri 01-Mar-13 20:03:30

Well done marchduckling that's fab grin

BeeMom Fri 01-Mar-13 20:13:42

By the time I can actually sit down and recap the week, you have all tucked into your warm beds and started snoring (I know - I am a comedian).

Long week - next week will be long too. I am holding a stall at a crafts show for the next 2 days, so I will likely be up all night tonight getting things ready. On the bright side - this means that I am going to have 2 6 hour periods without children OR DH. Even if I don't earn a cent, it'll be SO worth it grin

Hi everyone smile

My news is that I've been accepted onto the Prince's Trust Team programme in my area, and have had the induction week this past week.

I am making friends! Which for me is a big, big thing. I have very low self esteem and confidence but everyone is so lovely and the friendships are happening smile

Also, we did a blindfolded walk on our one night residential, (I hate being blindfolded - makes me think "what if, for some reason, I lose all my sight?") and this included being guided in a big line as a group, and individually round an obstacle course that included 2 rope bridges, of various types.

I normally fall off rope bridges, I didn't that time smile My balance isn't a shocking as I thought, then smile

Got a one WEEK residential next week, where I'll have to deal with my fear of heights as we'll be doing climbing, abseiling etc.

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 01-Mar-13 20:44:59

Ooh, can I buy a baby? grin

Nohaudin, 6th form interview on his own!

BeeMom, family free time by choice sounds great.

Hi Lollipop! Prince's Trust thing sounds great. Hope you make some lovely friends.

NoHaudinMaWheest Fri 01-Mar-13 20:46:24

Sounds like a good if challenging programme Lollipop.

BeeMom any excuse eh? But seriously I hope you do make some profit too.

moosemama Fri 01-Mar-13 20:47:58

Wow Lollipop, you are one brave lady! Well done!

Bee, enjoy your child and dh free days and here's hoping you sell loads of your lovely crafts as well. (My ds is still telling everyone about your Minecraft cake! grin)

lougle Fri 01-Mar-13 20:54:23

Glad to hear everyone's news.

I wanted to share something lovely that DD1's school did smile

One of the boys in DD1's class had his birthday today. He has ASD. His Mum and Dad approached the school and said that they felt it was very important that X celebrated his birthday on the day. They offered to pay for his class to go bowling and have lunch.

The school wrote to us to ask permission to take the children out, stressing that risk assessments and dietary needs would be met and that it would be staffed like any other school trip.

So, DD1's class went on the minibus to the next town, went bowling, had lunch and party games and then returned to school.

Isn't that fabulous? Truly 'getting' that the whole class would benefit from the experience, but most of all that this young man would understand that today was his birthday.

<That's where DD1's ill-fated balloon originated, may it Rest In Peace>

Ellenora5 Fri 01-Mar-13 20:54:48
