Hello. Goodness, I can't believe it's been a whole month since I was last here! I thought it was about time I dropped in and gave you an update on what's been going on. A huge decision has been made and there are some big changes coming to the contented household - we have decided to home school Joe after Easter. It's a long story which I shall try to keep as brief as possible. He had been finding this year (year 4) increasingly difficult and, although the school was very supportive and trying their best, we have all been struggling. He was also diagnosed with ADHD (on top of the Aspergers) last month. Because it takes so long for things to happen we ultimately decided that enough was enough. Home schooling is something that had always appealed to me so, although it's a huge responsibility (and I am crapping my pants at the thought of it!) I just felt that I have to at least give it a go, so that is what we are going to do. There will obviously be a period of adjustment to come, but I am going to do my utmost to keep this little space going - in a bit of a contradiction, whilst I will have much less time to spend in blogland, I have a feeling I'm going to need this space more than ever. Thank you all so much for the lovely messages of support you sent me after my last post. I really appreciate it so much.
In my absence, you will be pleased to hear that I even managed to do the odd bit of sewing!
I also sent off my pouch for the Mouthy Stitches swap, and received something wonderful in return, but I think that deserves a whole post of it's own.
It's good to be back - I've missed you!
