I’m still here – just quiet at the mo. Life seems a tad frantic, dividing my time between home ed, the animals and birds, and dealing with the crop. and then on top of that, fighting the system as ever on behalf of my son.
The joy of home ed was to step out of that for a few years and just enjoy the time, but as he moves into adulthood, it is time to roll up the sleeves again.
And for anyone arriving in the same place, here is a link to a great leaflet: money, when your child reaches 16 from the charity, contact a family. It’s a shame you only find out these things through word of mouth or charities.. if I were a cynic I would imply that the government would rather we did not find out…. but that can’t be right can it? oh no….
So a distracted life at the mo, dividing my time taking my son about, or one to one home ed, the plumbers are in our house, and seem to need every room and to turn off the water/gas/electric at various moments.. still they are cheerful and I trust them, making phonecalls through gritted teeth, and listening to a lot of classical music when on hold, finding important bits of paper, stoning a million plums and worrying over freezer space.
So the usual then.
