Mark had a phone call today to say that Tom has been booked into daycare at the hospice. He gets 6 sessions, after which they'll reassess whether he can continue going or if he's well enough to be 'discharged' in which case he'll go back on the waiting list for the next available slot. Our theory behind the daycare is that if he needs more help as time goes on, they will at least know him and his medical background.
Thomas is struggling with telling the time and it's beginning to worry him. It doesn't take much for things to grow out of proportion in his head and become major issues, so we try to nip any worries in the bud. Anyway, this morning I had a word with the teacher about it and it's nice to know he's not the only one. His problem seems to be where the 'little hand' is when it's making it's way to the next hour if that makes sense and instead of saying twenty to, he says 40 past.
Amy is in revision mode for GCSE's, specifically science. She's bought a book from school which is really good because it has a question and answer section on each topic which me or Mark go through with her when she's ready. I've found in the past that in order to be able to ask questions you need to know the subject yourself, and if I'm honest, the last thing I want to do is read Amy's text books so I can test her. It's certainly brought peace and harmony to the house and there have been no exaggerated sighs from her ..... or us!
We've been to see Mum who is suffering with a bad back at the moment. She's struggling but has still managed to make soup bless her! I'm on sweet potato, carrot and lentil this week. Yummy! The family news of the day is that my niece is pregnant again. She's a lovely girl, so easy going and happy, and we're thrilled for her. It'll be her second baby and it's due in November, the same month as her first.
We've just poured ourselves a glass of wine, put a pizza in the oven and we're going to sit down now for an hour or two and see what's happening on the election front. All I can say is may the best team/s win - as long as it's mine of course!
