MY WORD OF THE WEEK.
I left you in the lurch last week while I went off for a weekend of fun and learning at the Flea Retreat. It was totally amazing and we got to see some stunning views of the Welsh hillside.
I had a panic attack on the way there because we went over some pretty high hills. Being the passenger I was sitting on the …very steep drop.. side. If I’d been driving I’m sure I’d have coped better, crazy isn’t it? I was so glad to get out of the car at Aberystwyth and enjoy the calm views of the sea. It wasn’t quite so bad on the way back because Graham had decided to go a different route which took us through the Elan Vally. It was ALL HILLS all the way home. But not as high and scary as some of the roads we drove on before. And it was so beautiful.
Panic at School
Back to school on Monday and The Little Man’s school went into lockdown. They had an intruder on the site. It was a big panic, but soon resolved when the police arrived. The man was just looking for his children that were no longer attending the school. I guess he wasn’t supposed to be looking for them because scaling the school wall is not the way to go about it.
Then on Tuesday, because of the panic from the day before, the school decided to practice another lockdown. This worries me a little. I got thinking that maybe they hadn’t got it quite right the first time when they could have been in real danger. I guess they have to get used to their new school building and grounds.
Also on Tuesday, Boo had an after school club and Graham almost forgot to go and pick her up. He was less than five minutes late but she was already in a panic and getting the school secretary to call home.
Wednesday had Star in a panic about school. Her classmates were going off to do Duke of Edingburgh awards for the last two days of the week and she had no idea what she would be doing. As an autistic child she doesn’t cope with change easily. And with her physical disabilities she couldn’t take part in the DoE awards. Thankfully, she has two close friends who are also just like her. If it was not for them, I doubt she would have gone to school at all.
I’m now hoping for a panic free weekend! It will be nice if this sunshine sticks around, especially as Graham has been working hard on the garden.
