Oh I had just written here and pressed the wrong button and it all went!!!!!!!To cut my long blog short I am thinking about moving my youngest in with my eldest as he does not stay or even go into his own bedroom every night!!!!Pro’s and cons in doing this but it would mean then we would have an extra foster room which means we could give more children a stable safe and loving home!!!!We are still waiting for our first child, long story but I have asked to change offices(which has not gone down well), Mothers Day is a tough time for these kids , my friend has her first child and it has really effected him with all the cards and present stuff they do at school!!!!School another sore subject, my eldest went to see about getting into my daughters school and his attendance in his school is not good enough to get into hers!!!!MMMM he forgot to say why he had not been in school, continuous name calling etc etc!!!!I was raving onto Lucy’s site and about home ed and fab links etc and people just seem to cut the conversation dead,their loss really!!!!!People use school as a form of child care.I am seeing more of what lacks in school again as I had been out of it for a year and vowed never to go back in but I do love working with the children.Not sure though Lucy I am getting through to my new charge!!!!!(hard work)My daughter has been invited to the cinema today (much to her surprise)we went to her review and she is doing really well levels 7&8 but her form tutor was shocked that she comes home crying each night!!!!My eldest was refused a place for 6th form at her school because his attendance was poor,urm why? because some days he just could not go in there is so much name calling and teasing one can take!!!!He is off to TGI a mate is having a 16th Birthday meal but my son is panicking as it is so expensive and they lack in choice for non meat eaters!!!!!Max and I will be going to a local art gallery we usually go to the one in  Birmingham thought we would try a different one, he also has some money to spend oh no not the dreaded £1 shop!!!!!!I know I will cause lots of work with moving rooms around but I think it will work, Max is not allowed to have toys in his room they all have to be played with downstairs because of fostering safe care so it would only cause problems when ed wants to chill out at night!!!I’m sure with soft lighting and partitions thanks to Ikea it may work!!!!!We shall see!!! I still want to live by the sea, but thats another story.Oh and I must start reading more, my foster agency want to see I am studying from books as well as going on uninformative courses that I have to do!!!!!Reading Ugly at the moment.Have a good day will report back later, love & light to you all:)

Hello world!

Hi everyone or should I say anyone who may know me out there on this dark blustery evening!This is my 3rd attempt of blogging, so fingers crossed I will keep this up!People who do know a bit about me will know that we have been waiting for a few months for our 1st placement in fostering,every time the phone rings I jump to answer it hoping it is our agency with a suitable child, but alas they never seem to be quite right for our family!I know I must be patient but it is hard we just want to get started!!!!Haz my daughter is still fed up at school but she just plods on!Ed my eldest is applying to different places for 6th form(crumbs I don’t remember it being that hard).I went on a course the other day and the subjects of schools came up I can not believe how people react to Home Education, I know if I felt confident enough I would do it, I totally admire Lucy and family on they are such a fantastic family, reading her blogs H.E beats school any day! Was going to put in a pic but urm can anyone help not sure what to do!!!!!Am reading “ugly” at the moment but think I should be reading less books on abuse and go for lighter ones, any advise?I am quite taken by Jodi Picoult.I really want to start doing reflexology again and Reiki, since losing my Reiki room I am limited for space!!!!Have only been at work once this week the child I care for has been ill.My youngest is keen to do some clay modelling tomorrow and maybe we will go to our local museum and art gallery.I will try to make this blog as interesting as possible and hope you will enjoy our goings on!!!!Blessings to you all,Namaste!B
