I had to start a new thread, because being able to post a positive thread feels like progress smile So, let me boast about my DS a wee bit <watches as everyone runs away fast> grin

DS got Star of the Week at school for last week!!

I'm so damn proud of him. He's had to cope with such a lot since going to back to school, and it's not been easy, but it's wonderful, wonderful, to see him making progress. His teacher said he got it because he's improved on his behaviour and handling his emotions so much since the start of October. Apparently he was a totally different child in the last 2 weeks to what was going on back in September. Now he has a nice mini-certificate thing and a sticker, and he was very pleased with himself as well smile

I need to take a moment to say that his teacher is a lovely person as well, so understanding, and great with DS

Also, on a smaller scale, I ate an Orange Club Bar earlier and it tasted really nice instead of bland smile

What a wonderful story.
No. No to an orange club biscuit though. Mint all the way for me!

That's so lovely Lilka.

And the thought of an orange club bar makes me all nostalgic - I've not had one for years smile

Well done to DS

And to you for keeping on keeping on

Lovely to read a happy message- I really fancy an orange club now!

Lilka Thu 06-Nov-14 00:05:14

Enigma - Very understandable!
and Rhinos - Go get some!

but JAM - I don't know if I can ever speak to you again. I just don't know. I need to take some time for the shock to wear off and have a think....

Thanks everyone for understanding how much it means to us (but mostly him) smile

MrsM2509 Thu 06-Nov-14 07:10:49

Well done to him, you both must be super chuffed! I remember the feeling of getting a certificate at school (not that it happened often, punishment exercise more like)

Aaaaand, I can't remember orange clubs, will have to try hunt some out in sainsburys, I don't think I've ever tried them!

"If you liiiiiike a lot of chocolate on a biscuit, join our Club"

For the elderly amongst us.

I think star of the week awards are to encourage us parents... yay for Master Lilka!

excitedmamma Thu 06-Nov-14 13:30:53

Oh dear.... seems like I fall into the elderly category sad

Congrats to boy lilka

MerryInthechelseahotel Thu 06-Nov-14 13:38:55

Kewcumber Thu 06-Nov-14 15:59:05

Lilka Thu 06-Nov-14 16:14:46 grin

Angelto5 Thu 06-Nov-14 16:30:23

I remember the slogan for club but couldn't remember the tune & stupidly clicked on the youtube linkhmm

It's stuck in my head now- to make me feel better I will also show dh & see if it has the same effect on him. grin
