At the moment my life is revolving around hiring a nanny. Interviewing yet another one tomorrow. Wish me luck.....
DDs been away all week on holiday. I can't believe how much more relaxed I am without her around to worry about
DS is going to Scout camp tomorrow. He will be the youngest scout there by about 2 years. And while he doesn't normally pick a fight...... If he's provoked...... I expect him to come home black and blue and happy
Hi Indigo. I'm trapped in the cinema watching Mr Poppers Penguins. Not recommended for adults! I've had a fairly quiet week since our w/e away to the Forest of Dean.
Had lots of fun infiltrating NetMums with MrsDeVere, Infestation and others. Would you believe they have now added some of the nastier disablist words to their swear filter. Some really ignorant people on there. I have now registered on there and have my own ticker and everything. Don't think I'll be spending much time over there, somehow.
I can't zoom in enough to see the photo in all of it's glory I have to say that I was in so much pain yesterday and in bed from 5 but I managed to get my finger to work to scroll and press f5 all night
Hello all, a quiet week here, have took the plunge and booked Isle of Wight holiday so have been doing a fair bit of preparation for that. Feeling less stressed about Tribunal at the minute, told them to finalise the statement we're not going to try and get it right from what we got. Solicitor has drafted grounds of appeal but will fine tune it next week ready for when the final statement is issued. It's been such a slog getting to where we are that it actually feels like we are on the home straight now. Ds is as good as he gets so that's good and dd is entertaining me by showing a wicked sense of humour. Bought her loads of Beano comics from Ebay and so she's working her way through those Went for a walk in the Peak District when dh was off but other than that have been confined to barracks.
Well we have survived 2.5 days of primary 2 unscathed although the new teacher 'doesn't use a caterpillar' (visual timetable) and 'keeps the times in her head'. I was supposed to be going on a spa thingy tomorrow but one of the others can't make it and now the other three of us are doing a whole 'oh, shouldn't we postpone' thang. I DON'T WANT TO POSTPONE I WANT MY LOVELY SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Fear not, I'm 'just popping by' on Monday to 'catch up on a few things'.
I was actually quite surprised because she's very young and it's just good teaching practice - his P1 teacher did things in a very ASD-friendly way but she just thought it was a good idea to appeal to different learning styles - visual timetable, music cues to start and finish activities, fiddle toys on table tops. I'm starting to wonder if she was just a genius and no-one else will measure up...
I'm on countdown to the start of term! I'm finding the holidays hard, ds 3 LD & ASD and NT 6 year old dd. The weather has been poor here so not so easy to find things to do. DS is starting at his SS on 5th sept and I know it will be so good for him, and I can't wait to have some time on my own every day to catch up on housework / and or sit and have a quiet coffee! I'm also counting down to next weekend - it's our 7th wedding anniversary and DH and I are having two nights away ON OUR OWN!!! DD is going to the in laws and my parents are having ds - I'm SO LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!!!
