Oooh, Lucy you look absolutely beautiful – can we see some more pics please? As for the driving – I passed 4 years ago after 9 mths of lessons at 4 hrs a week & if I can do it then anyone can! I spent an hour in the loo before every lesson (sorry, TMI, lol) and was so scared I would physically shake for the entire lesson but I’m so glad I persevered & did it as the difference it’s made to us has been incredible.
As for my boys, well I just had Charlie’s KS1 SATS results today & he did fantastically well, with 2C in maths & reading, 2 in science & 1 in writing which is expected as he has poor motor skills. Although his diagnosis is GDD, his understanding seems to be pretty much ok & his speech is improving too. Given where he was a year ago with everything at level 1, he has made great progress thanks to such a good school and fantastic TA. He has made 3 visits to his new school for Sept & loves it there so we are actually not worried by the move which is great as I was so worried when looking for a new school & getting his Statement hours increased, etc. My middle lad has just done his week of work experience in the nursery unit at Charlie’s school and the children loved him, he did really well & got a £10 gift voucher for his hard work. His last MRI showed no change in his condition and while we know he will need more brain surgery, it’s a relief that he doesn’t need it yet. He goes to college one afternoon a week doing a vocational course in health & social care, he's doing voluntary work for a local charity with SN children & he's planning to do training in early years when he leaves school next year. And my oldest lad is going back to college in Sept for his A levels, I’m not sure he is well enough still but it’s great that he’s well enough to try it!

Hi all , still no closer with finding out what is wrong with Cole , think doctors have all hit a wall but I'm still fighting :-) He is starting full time nursery in September at 1st I was not to happy about it as I was only used to 2 days him being away . He turned 3 years old in June . Glad he is off school now but he is also getting really spoilt and crying all the time, wants held and talked to lol for someone who cant talk he lets me know he is still there . He is so trying to get on his feet and is pulling himself up on everything ,but still not able to weight bare ,waiting on test being done on his legs .
I'm due 3rd baby in January was total shock , still playing on my mind if this baby will have same issues and how i'm even going to handle an other baby but i'll deal with it when I get there .

Hi everyone, all running quiet smoothly here now that all Alex appointments are in house at his school were he is due to start full time in september. all care is in place and Alex has settled into respite really well and now goes overnight with no problems all the staff love him he is the youngest they have had. we have got a kidwalk at home now after securing the funding from newlife. still have the little niggles kidwalk came without the correct seat, lycra suit had the zips in the wrong place, shoes were the wrong colour nothing major. our only battle at the moment is trying to get a dfg for downstairs bedroom and bathroom iam confident it will be done just got to jump through a few more hoops! sounds as if i have got it easier than other at the moment but it hasnt all been plain sailing hope i am not tempting fate by posting this?? good luck everyone i wish you well x
I never thought it would happen to me.
