I've watched it since the start, can't believe it's been ten years and the children are now 13!

Have set sky plus, just in case I forget. Looking forward to seeing how they are all getting on.

Great. Can't believe they are teenagers!

DisAstrophe Thu 14-Mar-13 11:53:35

Love Zoe! Really worried about Shelby and William's mum

NaicePig Thu 14-Mar-13 21:04:49

Oh God this show makes me so emotional! Zoe is my favourite, she is so positive and gorgeous and intelligent, I just well up when I see her.

ellesabe Thu 14-Mar-13 21:06:30

She is so lovely!

NaicePig Thu 14-Mar-13 21:09:02

I often think of poor little Shelbie and her family sad

DisAstrophe Thu 14-Mar-13 21:12:29

Zoe is super mature for a 12 year old. So pleased her arm operation worked so well for her

DisAstrophe Thu 14-Mar-13 21:18:40

William and his family have it very tough

NaicePig Thu 14-Mar-13 21:19:15

William's mum is amazing too. With her MS and all the stress and heartbreak with William she's an absolute hero for being os pragmatic and calm.

crashdoll Thu 14-Mar-13 21:24:08

I've also been watching it from the start.

Sobbing at the face of William's mum as she was going around the school. I saw a fractiion of what she's going through in that expression.

SoggySummer Thu 14-Mar-13 21:25:16

I thought the same crashdoll. Very emotive.

NaicePig Thu 14-Mar-13 21:30:44

Oh God Shelbie's mum sad sad

OddBoots Thu 14-Mar-13 21:32:03

I can't wait to be cheering Hamish on in Rio.

ggirl Thu 14-Mar-13 21:33:22

damn missed the beginning, could someone fill me in on william's progress?

LemonBreeland Thu 14-Mar-13 21:33:43

Every time this show comes back I'm astonished and pleased to see Shelby is still with us. It is truly a miracle that she is still here. I' m in complete awe of her Mum.

girliefriend Thu 14-Mar-13 21:34:26

Poor Shelbie sad am breaking my heart at her brother saying 'she looks dead' sad sad sad

auntpetunia Thu 14-Mar-13 21:35:44

Oh poor Shelbie and her mum is so brave! William's mum looked devastated. But wow at Hamish …

NorbertDentressangle Thu 14-Mar-13 21:36:37

Shelby's mum is just amazing. Her strength, love and determination amazes me every time I watch the updates.

SoggySummer Thu 14-Mar-13 21:47:26

OH no poor Shelby sad

girliefriend Thu 14-Mar-13 21:51:09

Bloody hell thats hard to watch, poor Shelbie sad

Think Williams mum is also amazing, such patience with him. His dad looks worn down by it all though sad am quite shocked at how much it costs to send a child to that school though. His poor sister must be scared stiff of him.

OddBoots Thu 14-Mar-13 21:53:22

It seems amazing that if the LA have declined the school they haven't even offered at least some more support like school transport.
