Beginning to feel a bit swamped by everything. On my to do list at the moment I have:
Chase LEA re: meeting for dd's statement and prepare my arguments
Fill in dd's DLA forms
Make appointment for dd at cranial osteopath
Make appointments to go and see possible nurseries for dd
Try and source a 2-piece inset puzzle
Write letter re: parking fine because stupid traffic warden didn't see Disabled badge
contact ss re: possible house adaptations to make room for ridiculous amount of physio equipment
order makaton books
find out about soft play areas suitable for dd
source touch screen for computer (2nd hand)
source hot/cold pads and other sensory stuff
and that is just the stuff that relates to dd's special needs and not even including doing any of her actual therapies....
And my mother asks me "what sort of things do you need to do then?" when I say I am busy.....
Thanks for puzzle tips ladies - will get on-line and have a look. Are the ones in your local shop really simple fio? Like a circle and a square or similar?
Saker - its terrible isn't it? instead of looking forward to visitors half the time now it just stresses me out . Usually because it means I have to go on a mad cleaning frenzy because the rest of the time my house is a horrid mess.
I will pop in tommorrow and have a look HITC, i remember seeing them though and thinking how they were ideal. Btw do you not have a toy library you can use? we used to have one where we used to live (not sure about here) that was greta for lending stuff off
My to-do list always seems to be about a mile long. I have a big noticeboard in my kitchen that is full of appointments and meetings for between now and the end of term. It's only Wednesday and I've already had to see 3 different pros this week, and I've got another appointment tomorrow. Ds2's DLA form is almost finished but I'm still trying to sort out his pre-school provision ready for September. His introductory session didn't go as well as I'd hoped so it looks as though there's more to be done there too. Then on top of that is all the things that need arranging for ds1.........
