I really must get out of the habit of only posting once a week, it's very naughty.
I've had a bit of a week and I'll get into that further on in the post but for now here is my neglected craft desk or as it is more commonly known, the dining table
Well, to catch up on my week; on Thursday we went to my son's school for the very important options evening when we could talk to the teachers individually. I normally teach on a Thursday evening from 6.30 so I put back the time to 7pm thinking that would be fine. Well of course it would have been fine if all of the teachers and parents kept to schedule, but that never happens. It was getting a bit stressy and I knew we wouldn't get to see all the teachers we wanted to see before I had to leave. Whilst we were waiting to see George's science teacher he had an absence which is like a mini fit. Luckily it didn't turn into a major fit and we were able to get him out of the school with the minimum amount of fuss. My husband asked me to cancel my class completely as he had to collect out other son from football training and didn't want George left alone.
Luckily I did as not long after we got home George had a full blown fit which is always very traumatic, especially for my youngest son as he gets very scared. He was amazing this time looking for the medication and phoning for his Dad. The main problem now is that my son is over 5ft 7 and when he comes out of a fit and decides he needs to go to the bathroom it is very difficult for me to stop him, even though he cannot walk properly and has no control over his limbs! After a while we got him to bed and he was soon sleeping peacefully, which is more than can be said for me. I seem to get more and more upset after his fits these days and break down in tears. I just can't get the awful images of him fitting out of my mind.
Anyway, enough of this gloom. George had Friday off school so he got an early start to half term and on Saturday he went into Brighton with his best friend and her Mum and he had a lovely day shopping. My youngest son went to his 'girlfriend's' house to deliver her Valentine's present and spent the afternoon there. Me? Well I spent the whole day cleaning as we had a French student coming that evening!
On Sunday my husband took the boys, including the French one, fishing. It was blooming freezing on the pier (apparently!) but Michael managed to catch this
As for crafting this week? Not a lot! I've been struggling with making my first ATC for a swap group I've joined. After three abortive attempts I finally made one I'm happy with
I've also been struggling with my photo assignments this week which involve taps, fireworks,bridges and darkness!
Well if you're all still awake why not pop over to Julia's blog and find some more exciting workspaces and hopefully happier weeks
