    That's the hardest part of this all.

    When I die I will know that I have lived, loved, mattered and made a difference, even if in a small way.

    I was on a influencer course yesterday on line. So much to think about.
     I am hoping that after half term and the children are back in school that I can start a few changes to my working schedule.
    dgs1 is still very very challenging and being confined to home is a difficult time, but we are surviving. Had to keep Dgs2 home as he's constipated and we are just waiting for a prescription from the doctors for him. Bless he is rather pale and uncomfortable.
    Dgd is resisting routine and I am trying to get her to engage again. Hopefully as the weekend we are able to go out again things will improve.

    Yes, I can imagine that the lack of privacy/me time would be very hard to cope with :(
    It's not difficult!

    Thanks for posting, Savvy. Glad DGS  and DGD will be getting help. Sorry to hear you have to self-isolate again though!

    where is the time going?
     Hi people. We are getting somewhere. The funding for the assessments for Dgs1 has finally been agreed.
     The post adoption team are going to work with dGD as well as him.
    We have just heard from school this morning that a family in the school have Covid so we have to self isolate DGs1 again! This time until 17th November.
     I am not looking forward to that.
    However it is much worse for a lot of people and we do at least have a garden if the weather is clement enough.

    stay safe x

    Charger no 3 for this new laptop so everything crossed I wont be stuck without the internet again.
    I'm so pleased the support for DGS1 and for DGD is going to happen.
    Te problems with needing to self isolate must be very frustrating. Apart from the impact on daily life DGS1 must be so confused and frustrated . It really doesn't help with a routine.
    The weather here has been not so good but we are promised less downpours and some warmer days. I hope you can make use of the garden if things improve.
    Have you been offered any support yourself? Maybe it's a thing of the past with all the cuts but if there is some respite you need it.
    Hope all here are ok and beanie is still plodding.
    No one knows when but "This too shall pass"
    Take care everone and try to find at least one smile or good thing in each day.
