    Hope your talk with Star and the head of year’s support will be helpful in easing the worry over GCSE’s. I can see how removing one cast and replacing it with another is confusing for Little Man. Hope his arm continues to heal well and that physio will help him get it moving again. Having children off school does make the days feel muddled – glad Boo has stayed well and hope that stays the case for you all with Covid. Frustrating that the offer on the pizzas ended just when you were going to order them and that your daughter’s lunch items were missing on the shopping. Hope next week is a less muddled one. #WotW

      Thank you Louise, we are most definitely looking forward to a nice long relaxed weekend and hopefully the bank holiday next week won’t put us in another muddle.

    Muddled I like that word, though it’s kept you on your toes this week! Poor Little Man I hope the physio can help him. Isn’t that just typical with the pizzas? Hope next week is less muddled!

    Sending love and hugs. Your family is really going through it at the moment.
    I am pretty sure Star will try her best and if she doesn’t get the grades she needs it’s fine! My eldest didn’t get a high enough grade in Maths but still got on to her course and had to do the GCSE as an extra lesson.
    That must be a bit more comfortable for your Little Man with the new cast. I hope he starts moving his arm a little.
    Poor Boo. Thank goodness for the negative tests.
    Oops with the Dominoes pizza. It is so expensive at full price. When we could get it delivered I would only get it when there was an offer on. x

    Lots going on this week. Isn’t funny how changing your food shopping day can really throw you off. What a nightmare with the pizzas, we have had a pizza hut request that I’m putting off for a bit. I’m glad you have a plan for Star. To be honest my GCSE results were only ever used to get me into college.

    Oh Anne, what a week. Ramble on please, hopefully it has helped to air out some of your frustrations! I can completely sympathise with star’s worries, I was exactly the same. Some mindful pauses between revising different subjects might help all of the information to sink in, and allow her to rest a little too. Hope this coming week is better for you!

    Changing my shopping day would throw me. I’m glad Little Man’s hospital appointment went well. Hope he gets used to the new cast soon. When my eldest broke her arm when she was little, the person removing her cast, cut her hand. She wouldn’t go near anyone with scissors for years. The GCSE is a nightmare. Our school is vague about what is being assessed and no timetables. I wish we had the usual exams. I’m glad Star is getting support at school.

      eek! I will not tell my Little Man about your story, he was so terrified when they took his first cast off. I’m trying not to stress Star out too much with her GCSEs she will just refuse to do anything otherwise.
