Never started one before - barring a mistake once when I started one on a Thursday during the holidays. blush

Hoping I haven't crossed with someone else now.

Roll up, roll up ... share yer woes, celebrations, congratulations and/or commiserations - but don't forget the chocolate. grin

The pathway leads to dx, weather language, communication, ASD, whatever. It doesn't lead to services because they are all school based. It's total rubbish. I'm disgusted actually. The truth is I probably wouldn't have used the services anyway, because I am a teensy bit prescriptive and picky about who does what with ds, but for there to be nothing! It's criminal. Some of ds's language is still at 18month level, he's 8 years old this month! angry

Kinky, will you be affected by this new draconian housing benefit ruling on under occupancy?

Quite likely. I will not know for sure until we would apply for housing benefit for the larger home when we have it. Have been advised that it may well be the case that we won't qualify for the full HB, but I'm fortunate enough that I'm confident enough that I'd be able to shuffle finances around to be able to make up the excess - thanfully we live in a fairly low-cost area!

Hi joining this v late! Kids didn't get to bed til gone 9. After that I slid into a bubble bath and then cleaned out the guineas! Mad I know but I am so

pleased I don't have to this morning. Think I've upset my mil this morning too, she called at 9 to tell me that relative x is coming round from the op in dramatic tones. I had no idea what she was talking about, turns out she phoned last night too but hub hasn't told me! I had to cut her short as hub and ds1 were leaving the house and ds2 was trying to barricade them in! Lol having a coffee in the sofa and trying to start the day again!

Coming in late here, too.... Rare Friday evening out with other school mums who are lovely, but an odd mix of ladies.... I drank plenty of wine and tried not to feel in a parallel universe. But it's a struggle. Saw Paed on Mon. She was pretty definitive in her understanding of dd2 as ASD. It's what I have been wanting to hear but is not yet official. But nobody in my group of friends 'gets' Autism when it doesnt involve lining up trains and being non verbal or rocking in a corner or 'special talents'. DH seems to be able to carry on like its not happening. Right now I feel pretty isolated, like I am pasting on a smile from inside a goldfish bowl, looking out. Technically I've had a good week. But it just doesn't feel like it. X

Well, I've tried to read, but too much going on, with 2 bouncy boys and a headache, to concentrate! Had a trip to IKEA, this morning, andd despite telling him clearly, before we went in, that they had no hot dogs, DS1 still plastered himself on the floor when he saw that there were no hot dogs. He's been getting into a bit of a tizz about all the horsemeat stuff, so this hasn't helped.

Though it's actually been one of the calmer weeks, despite a wobbly start.

I bought a bottle of wine, after getting a much needed haircut, yesterday. First in a week. It was rank. I threw the remains down the sink, this morning.
