A good week

7 Jun

We’ve had lots happening this week. DD1 had the final 2 exams of her school career, and now she is a free agent and off at her first music festival.

DD2 is now in her 5th year of secondary school and came home today happy with a Swiss roll she’d made in a cookery class (It was cooking or Higher Maths so she went for the practical option – smart girl) and we pronounced her a newly discovered baker 🙂 It was delicious.

DS1 completed and passed his Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, a great achievement and made even better by the fact he had an awful start to the week at school and I am still trying to sort out what on earth some staff were thinking. More of that in another post. Here is a snap of my big lad setting off for his trip:



DS2, who has been struggling with anger issues for most of this year, completed the week with a full sheet of green stars for good behaviour during the school day, which made him so proud of himself, and rightly so. It’s not always easy being stuck between 2 siblings with additional needs and he is learning how to channel his feelings in a much more appropriate manner.

And M? Well, she had a cracking week in school – despite some serious reluctance in the mornings to even eat her breakfast – and no meltdowns have broken out. She has lost her temper plenty of times, and there have been tears, and extra cuddles have been needed, but it was a happy wee girl who talked me into another beach afternoon today. And why not? The sun was shining and it was hot; tomorrow it could be raining again. So we did some of this:


and even some of this:


Wishing each and every one of you a good weekend.
