Change of plan...

As you know Steven has left school and I've been looking into day care for him and who to provide it. Well thought I had it sorted but have been let down by a few people and felt I wasn't having any time with Steven myself, so a change of plan was needed.

So with a bit of juggling and lots of phone calls Clive and I decided on a couple of changes to Thursday and on Sunday's

On the Thursday we will now be having someone to take Steven out for just 3 and half hours in the morning. (Verity is still working with Steven at the moment but she is off to Uni next month, so we're in the process of finding someone else)

and on the Sunday Steven will be going to the Out if Town centre for 4 hours in the afternoon...

So now on Thursday's Steven will be home in time for lunch so he and I can not only have some 'US' time, either by going out for lunch or just chilling. But sometimes we can now meet up his sister for lunch and see his nana, as we used to do that in the school holidays but of course he won't have school holidays any more. I can also book some of his appointment for the afternoon, so it won't ruin his whole days at the centres...

On the Sunday we thought that time would give Clive and I 'US' time either to chill, talk or do chores round ours or Sam's house that needs the two of us to do, also will give 'US' time with Sam...

Not sure how it will go, I will watch Steven closely to see how he copes with going out for 4 whole days and 2 half days, and if I don't think he's enjoying it, it will all change again, lol..

We are also looking into the day care centres taking him horse riding, maybe to a soft play centre, doing some ICT and going to the gym, all just once a month, again not sure how Steven will like the things, but he has done them all in the past with his school.

This week we had the adult community nurse round to see Steven about her behaviour, but like the speech therapist, I think it will be a long on going process, lol... Oh well at least they are now on board, (as has taken a while to get them)....
I also had the social worker round here again today as I took it upon myself to phone her as no payment had gone into Stevens account and we had invoices coming in. It seems she had forgotten to send me a form to sign, but was wondering if we could foot the bill and they would reimburse their amount later. I said no, (as if we had spare cash just lying around and if I did, how long would it take me to get my money back), lol... Anyway she popped round here this afternoon, so it should be faxed through to the right department tomorrow, so fingers crossed for next week.
