Hand holding needed...I'm just wandering around the house.

DS (16) left early this morning for his assessment and interview at a very good special school in Kent for their residential sixth form. DH drove him this morning. We will go tomorrow afternoon for our interview, then all return together.
DS has been away from home on 3 school journeys. Each of which was a nightmare getting him to go, and getting him to stay. For those who don't know DS has cp and associated orthopaedic problems, Aspergers and teenage anxiety disorder.
DH says things were 'cool' when he left - DS didn't look scared and went off for a physio assessment.
I am scared to go near my phone or Facebook in case Mr Dweebypants has sent 'rescue me!' messages.
I am going to walk DS's dog.

Love the name Mr Dweebypants. Your DH may have been quite right when he said that things were cool.
'Tis a mother's lot to worry. 10 minutes late and we have them in hospital - or worse.
I hope the dog walking keeps you sane/calm - and that all has gone well. smile

All quiet so far.
He has been at the same school since he was 2.5, so this change is HUGE for him. But he needs to move on.
Of course, he doesn't agree but has to suffer it because his current school doesn't offer post-16 anyway.
Praying this works out because the school he is visiting is absolutely lovely - and believe me I've looked at 'em all over the last couple of years!

God bloody teenagers!

Have heard NOTHING from him. School phoned about 5.30pm to ask if I knew where he had left his overnight bag (DH said on the sofa in reception). I asked how he was, to be told that he had gone to Bluewater in the minibus after school with a group of the lads and they were having dinner there.

OK, this is one of the reasons I like this school so much, the post-16 provision is really geared towards independence.

But this boy has an iPhone. He could ring, ext, email, MSN, anything. Nothing. I am properly put in my place.

THis looks like the NAS at Gravesend as local to me. Looks really great! Hope you like it and he gets in.

No Ben, to the west of Gravesend, virtually on the Surrey border. It's a PD school.

He's home (after a long day of all sorts of interviews). He's very tired as they sat up till late watching videos on you tube. They had KFC for dinner! It went really well, it's his first choice. And they want him too!

So now I play cat and mouse with my council...

Wow, really glad it all went well and good luck with the funding.
