Here's hoping....

Didn't have a great start to the day, it started with the Out of Town centre forgetting to pick Steven up, so we were ready for 8.30 and after a phone call he was picked up at 9.45. It seems they thought he should be there tomorrow and not today, but all was fine and even though Steven was very agitated waiting for the bus, he left happy (and came home happy)...

My daughter then popped in as work had sent her home, as she had flu like systems and needed some 'mum' reassurance. So after having a little chat she was on her way home, couldn't give her a lift as had the car filled up with the old attic carpet, broken boxes from the shed etc. but as she only lives 5 minute walk away, she would be fine... (OK I did drive down her road, just to make sure she was all right, even thought she might not live here any more I still worry), lol...

I then shot to the tip to empty the car, came home and started the housework with the view I would do chores till 3pm, then go up into my 'crafty paradise' and do some crafting for an hour before Steven was due home.

BUT after running the hoover through, 7 phone calls of a mixture of me making or receiving and a visit from Enableability it was 3.50, so no time in my bit of paradise. But on the UPSIDE, I now have the new social worker visiting tomorrow, a speech therapist appointment booked for next Wednesday and Verity from Enableability taking Steven out for a few hours over to the Island of Wight tomorrow... so not all bad...


and you just never know I just might get up to my craft paradise tomorrow, well, here's hoping...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Maria that you get to spend some quality time in your arty attic - I'm dying to see all your crafty projects!

I'm sorry that they muddled up Steven's days, but at least he got there in the end, and you also seem to be getting there with getting everything sorted for him and his future.

Hugs - Carole xxx
