Hi all. Just been on a damp school trip to Weston-Super-Mare, so a bit tired. DS2 (Y6) has been doing cycling proficiency this week but had to be brought back to school for 'endangering the others in his group!' Oooops! grin

He had a wobble this week when I forgot it was Mufti day and he and his brother were the only ones in school uniform. DS3 was fine but DS2 had a complete strop. I didn't have time before work to get him changed, but his teacher found him an old rugby shirt in the PE cupboard. Didn't really help, he had a bad day. sad What a bad mother!

yeah it's not as tho you had anything else to think of is it??? wink confused.

Are you in south west then? I know weston well, it was the seaside we always went to as kids, (and I have students down there, so get to visit lots) did you get on to new swanky pier?

Week here at chez sign has been ok, I did 12 hour day on Tues (inc 200 mile round trip) for work, so am bit knackered, but at least all the arrangements to get dh and ds through the day minus me worked out ok...

ds went for school visit, (cue lots of cries of 'bi schoo !!!') He also made me laugh by climbing up to look in dh'd shaving mirror and randomly stating 'I got eyebrows!! two!!!'... it is still making me laugh. grin

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 19:28:25

Lucky boy, I've got eyebrow, one!

He's really making progress, sign. How lovely.

Yes, I'm from Bristol originally and Weston (super Mud) was our nearest seaside, nearest Radio One roadshow etc. We went on the new pier, very, hmm, traditionally tacky? And on the Weston Eye, (built by farmers) and the aquarium. Really tired now.

On a positive note, DS2 doesn't need to be circumcised, jury still out on DS3, though! grin

I did a 4 day course this week, to become an Apple Certified Professional in Final cut Pro 7 (video editing software).

Did the Basic course exam yesterday, passed with 89% (80% needed for a pass).

Did the Advanced course exam today, passed with 80.36% (again, 80 needed for a pass).

I am over the moon, going shopping tomorrow with my best friend too! smile

signandsmile Fri 17-Jun-11 19:35:03

liking that concept... does anyone get called up for jury duty? grin. Joking aside, that's good news.

we always called it 'weston on the mud' never managed to time visits for when the sea was in...

have thought about eye for ds, but not sure if he would manage... do they pack you into the 'pods'?

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 19:36:02

So glad you've had a better week, Lollipop!

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:37:29

LOL at eyebrows! grin

LollipopViolet - well done! enjoy shopping!

A bit tired today. Too tired to really think much. LOL I could use a glass of wine, but none in the house. DH made a brew for me, so that's good.

Just mindlessly watching telly.... will pop back in here and there. LOL (the proverbial bad penny, me grin)

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 19:39:53

Sign, it was quiet there today, we had 6 children to one adult in each pod, but it seemed to be one family per pod for the public.

DS3 has to go back to see the consultant next year, hoping 'it's sorted itself out.'

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 19:41:39

Hi Triggles. Having fun with the MacClaren Major?

signandsmile Fri 17-Jun-11 19:42:56

ah may try it then...

well done lollipop! and Hi triggles, (i too am popping in and out, watching dr with dh again.)

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:46:39

Yes EllenJane - it is a wondrous thing!! LOL School run trauma is now a thing of the past. And he is willing to walk part of the way, because he knows he won't have to cope with the entire walk. Very pleased! I'm no longer a prisoner in my own home!

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:48:01

goodness signandsmile - you gave me a panic (hi! <waving>) For some reason I saw that and thought we were missing a new Dr Who episode.... gasp gasp! Then it clicked. grin Bit slow tonight, me...

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 19:51:02

That's really great, Triggles. It's lovely when a plan actually works!

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 19:52:36

Are you not watching Doctor Who on BBC Three, then?

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:53:12

Now we get to panic about the ASD assessment in July. I always worry they'll look at him and say "he's normal,just badly behaved." blush I KNOW it's there, and I know I'm being silly.. but still... after years of GPs poo-pooing our concerns, it still worries me.

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:54:18

what?!?!?! must be a repeat

signandsmile Fri 17-Jun-11 19:55:04

ellen dh does dr who blog, so we are watching john pertwee this eve....

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:56:13

ah.... hey, sign... were you pm'ing links to that blog last week? I would like one still.... grin

intothewest Fri 17-Jun-11 19:56:45

Hi all - glad to hear the good news - The 'weston Eye' made me smile

Been really busy in RL,so don't get on MN much

DS finally got ASD diagnosis (I've known for ages,so feel relieved)Everything's pretty much o.k (will I regret typing that ?)

I have wine and I'm going to open it.....

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 19:58:10

ack!! wine!!! <shuffling over to intothewest's house with my empty wine glass> grin

Had a meeting with the SENCO at Dd3's new school on monday, she is really pleased with the way Dd3 has settled in.

She has been fab about going to school since she moved. The senco had noted that she is often playing with the children who use wheelchairs and that she is really helpful and kind to them.

This seems to be helping her as she is not struggling all the time to socialise with the girls in her class.

She is still refusing to have school dinners but I think that is because she can avoid the dinner hall altogether if she takes a packed lunch.

Next week she and Dd2 are performing with their choir in a big theatre in the city nearest to us[don't want to out myself by naming it].

I am a bit worried about how she will cope with the noise from the orchestra but the vocal tutors are brilliant so they will keep an eye on her.

Sorry didn't mean that to be so longgrin.

signandsmile Fri 17-Jun-11 19:58:50

triggles, will do ... (now realised didn't get back to last weeks discussion so there maybe others who asked.. blush blush)

EllenJaneisnotmyname Fri 17-Jun-11 20:00:23

You'll have to PM me the link, sign. I'm a bit of a Doctor Who junky, can just remember Patrick Troughton, but Jon Pertwee was my Doctor! (Carnival of Monsters my favourite episode.)

Triggles, I didn't realise you hadn't had his DX yet. Crossing fingers for you that you get a 'useful' DX.

intothewest Fri 17-Jun-11 20:01:46

You're welcome, Triggles.
We love Dr. Who in our house too ! I've just been singing the theme tune as Ds has his Dr. Who PJs on

Triggles Fri 17-Jun-11 20:04:03

No EllenJane - paed is actually unwilling to give him an "official" dx for anything yet, only a "working dx" in order for him to access support. She wants to wait until he is older (a couple years... sigh) as she feels it helps see how he develops. If she was not supportive, this would really annoy me, but she is extremely supportive and helpful, so we just play it by ear.
