I have been very distracted this week – so much so that I forgot a bio appointment and a teacher meeting!
I have been feeling crap and I have been busy with Jack’s party AND I am really enjoying Criminal Minds. I find it fascinating how much people can tell about other people by the way they behave.
There has been a lot of other stuff going on this week that has meant I just haven’t really been focused on my blog and I do miss it.
I finished all the baking and icing for Jack’s party this morning and am super chuffed with how it all came out. I decided this year to not get any sweets – we have cookies and car biscuits and cupcakes and cake and chips. The kids also aren’t getting sweet filled party packs – I have made iced cookies for the older children and a small toy for the younger ones.
I really do enjoying party planning.
I haven’t given a proper update on Kiara – the short story is that she is moving to a new school next term. We went through their assessment and they actually do not see any major problems apart from her spelling and feel that she will cope in their mainstream class but they only have a spot in their remedial class. So we are putting her in that class for this year. As soon as they have a space for her she will move. I think it is what she needs. A chance to build up her confidence again, close the gaps and get her to a place where she can cope well with her peers. She seems ok with it now but I suspect we will have an adjustment period when the term starts!
I am at peace with the decision.
How has your week been? Any plans for the long weekend?
