So, we made an offer on a house last week which was accepted. It has a garden with an apple tree and though it needs work, it will be lovely, I think. Today I found out there is a place for DS at the local school. It only has 115 on the roll, is fully focused on SN, they're already talking about putting his audited hours up so they can recruit a classroom assistant, they have such a lovely, caring ethos, are a Forest school as well, and I am SO HAPPY that I can't stop crying...

Bottle this feeling and open it on a bad day! good news - savour the feeling smile

Thanks all, yes indeedy zzzzz it's going to be appletastic round Wilson's! I have a whole sort of 'Little House on the Prairie' thing going on in my head, with apples and butter and allsorts, which will no doubt be nothing like the reality. But for today - let us have chutney!

smile and a little bit of envy
I hope it all works out well for you and your family

As a woman who is sinking under the stench of laden apple trees.....all I can say is hold the dream, the reality is making my thumbs brown! I find John Seymours book very soporific and always drift off to sleep thinking hmmmm must buy a cow. grin

Outside space has made a huge difference to ds....and me!

How lovely. All sounds idyllic. Best of luck. Home made apple juice is yum and does freeze by the way.

How lovely! Congratulations smile

fab! so plsed for you! (btw I find making jelly better than jam, as you don't have to peel or core apples just chop up and stew with water, 1 pt juice to 1lb sugar).grin

Brilliant sign that's the kind of help I need!

Absolutely zzzzz just having safe outdoor space will make the world of difference to us I think grin

DH asked DS what he would like in the garden (he's been after a trampoline for years, but DH has also been 'subtly' pushing a treehouse) and DS replied 'a swimming pool.'

We live in Scotland. And the garden ain't that big grin

I just can't stop grin

Sounds wonderful - good luck with it all smile

zen1 Mon 12-Sep-11 21:47:59

That sounds lovely - hope it all goes through ok smile. Can I just ask, what is a Forest school?

WilsonFrickett Mon 12-Sep-11 23:46:38

Two teachers have been specially trained in using the woodland next to the school as an outdoor classroom, so the children learn how to make shelters and 'be' in the forest, as well as then using the forest setting to deliver lessons. (I say forest but for the new school it really is a patch of woodland smile) Lots of problem-solving, risk management, team working but outside physically doing things.

I don't know a huge amount about it yet, and I don't know if it will suit DS but I like the sound of it...

Oh Wilson I am so pleased for you and your family! smile

Lived in the country when my eldest was small. Right in the middle of nowhere but apple trees and fruit trees and a lovely small school. Had a rayburn and baked lovely bread on it. We had sheep (not ours) but helped out feeding the lambs with DD and kind of adopted one. Was a bit odd coming home from work with the cat, dog AND sheep running up the path to greet you grin

What a lovely new start you have smile
