Meeting......

Well had the meeting yesterday, the new social worker was unable to make it, (as if I was surprised, lol). To be honest my head was fit to burst by the end of it, but since then have been thinking about it and had a good chat with Clive last night, and with a bit of tweaking, we might just have things sorted to what we would like for Steven. Hopefully I can tell you more at the weekend, as don't want to get my hopes up, just yet...

Oh plus note, we got invited to Sam and Matt's for dinner yesterday evening, it was lovely, Matt did the main course (a he doesn't work on Tuesday) and Sam did the pudding... The main course was chicken breasts stuffed with soft cheese, herbs and garlic and was served with new potatoes, steamed summer vegetables and garlic bread on the side, it was all freshly made, nothing frozen.

Sam made a puff pastry case filled with summer fruits and served with fresh cream, it was all yummy and after a couple of bottles of wine, we finished off playing on the wii. I've never played on one before, Steven has at school and Clive did at Christmas when we visited his brother and family.

Later in the evening Sam asked Steven if he wanted an apple, in which he signed yes (he loves he's fruit) so Sam took him out into the garden to pick one off their tree. Steven face was a picture, he reckonized they were apples, but what were they doing on a tree, when usually he gets them in a plastic bag from Asda, lol...
Well he soon grabbed one and was biting into it, he must have enjoyed it, as he went back for a 2nd, lol... We didn't leave there till gone 10.30, it was a very enjoyable evening and hopefully we will do it again very soon Sam (as it was a treat not to cook and be waited on, lol).

Today I took Steven on a bus ride down to Gunwharf Quays as I had decided to take him to see Toy Story 3, but as he has not been to a cinema for years and was not sure how he would take to it, I stuck to the normal one and not 3d.
He seems to enjoy it, even chuckling a few times (when Woody got caught under the dog). We then wondered round and bought some new swim trucks and some lunch before catching the bus home. This one was a little busier as it went past the sea front and of course the sunbathers and swimmers were leaving, so yes my son thought it would be great fun to say hallo and goodbye to everyone that got on and off the bus. I was glad when it was our stop, lol.

Tomorrow I have another meeting here at 11 and then thought Steven and I might meet Sam for lunch, via a visit to hobby craft as I want some 12x12 boxes for my clear stamps, as I hoping to get back to sorting it at the weekend.

Your meal at Sam's sounds delicious, I would like to know how they did the stuffed chicken breast if you know the recipe.
I bet Sam felt proud being able to have you round to their house. Glad you had a nice time.
