This comes from a daft game that me and my youngest DS play on my bed where we pretend it is a flying carpet and we can fly anywhere in the world we want to (really good for teaching geography!).
So, I've got my advanced flying carpet certificate. There is no SN, no acronyms, no social workers, no statements,no DLA, no LEA, no tubes, homework, mess, nappies, tantrums or screaming. There has a been a team of people who have arrived at your door to take over EVERYTHING and the children LOVE them. So Where are we going?
I'm pointing towards New Zealand at the mo because I've always wanted to go but am tempted by tropical islands with a perfect beach and a beautiful blue sea.
Can I climb aboard too? Anywhere but here really, but definitely somewhere warm and sunny, with a free bar, and I fancy sitting by an "infinity" swimming pool, gazing out over beautiful deep blue sea, on my OWN with a good book and a glass of wine.
Vrooom vroom (sorry, actually I don't think the thing makes noises like that - I envisage calm swooping and flapping)
To our left you can see a tropical island (no hurricanes) with a lovely bar, infinity pool, endless food and a lovely sandy beach with sand that doesn't get to places you don't want. Landing will commence shortly.
On retake off we will be heading towards colder climes of Lapland, past the otter snoring in her bed (shhhhhh) and allowing for a stop off for a long walk in fresh country air whilst kicking vast quantities of autumn leaves which haven't been pooed on by other peoples' canines.
To cheer up Janes we will then return back to warmer climes for Dubai. Whilst on the carpet please accept the complimentary drinks service which will be continuos and make you feel slightly merry but not drunk at all.
sorry this is a bit daft and frivolous but sometimes (like this weekend) I just dream of escaping it all - the SEN, the housework drudgery, work (especially bonkers LEA who want us to place kids in our unit who really must and absolutely have to have special school), other people just DEMANDING stuff.
