Thanks to everyone who has sent me kind thoughts while I have a had a cold. I still have it but today (after a week of feeling not very healthy) I went to the Chemist and now have cough medicine and cold and flu tablets. Apparently one dose of each and I sound so much better. Here’s to not keeping myself up until 3 am coughing tonight!
It does mean that Operation Anniversary has not progressed (aka actually started) but that is okay. I can deal with that. Exercise while feeling like crud and coughing is probably not a smart move anyway.
We are discussing the options for Boy Child and High School. We are considering a few different schools. I’m really struggling with the whole friendship (on the plus side he has some friends!) versus academic versus hopefully some support versus travel versus no idea what really. He won’t receive any aide time in High school just as he didn't in Primary school. Would he be better off at a school with a support unit so the teachers and students are aware of the behaviours?
Has anyone got any advice on this? How did you choose the high school for your child? And are you happy with the decision you made? I’m wondering is the whole hating change thing would make it easier to make a clean break? He won’t hate us forever would he?
Any help, thoughts, ideas gratefully accepted email me (my email address is on my about me page up there on the left) if you don’t want to comment publically.
Do you remember that February is / was kind of a sucky month? I wrote a couple of posts on it but this one is the one that is relevant to this post.
So my friend W and I have been having coffee on a fairly regular basis. At least once a fortnight. Along the way her Dad has been diagnosed with Leukaemia. For a while there it looked as though he wasn't going to have treatment but he has decided to which I think is a relief for W.
Remember the family at school with the child in Girl Child’s class? The one who lost toddler family member and Mum / Grandmother in the space of a week? Well the step father (who also had cancer) has died now as well. Three deaths in the space of about 4 months. It’s so very, very sad. So to that family I am sending my thoughts.
I hope they, and everyone else, have a lovely weekend.
