So far, so good....

I'm managing to keep my more positive frame of mind, for now at least, which is great. It's a big help as I actually now feel I can cope with whatever the next few months may bring my way. I know the counselling I am going to undergo is going to be intense, but I also know it's the right thing to do and that I WILL get through....a few days ago I wasn't even sure I had the strength to start. I am still getting flashbacks and nightmares but I'm managing them better, maybe I'm getting sadly used to them, who knows, but the space I have at the moment is really helping me to feel I have the room to react however I feel I need to. It's invaluable. I'm back at the Dr on Tues so we'll see what happens there. I have a feeling another week off will make all the difference now I'm just starting to feel better, but I'll take her advice.

We're on the brink of another weekend, of course, and we have nothing planned at all! Bliss. I think tonight we may go for a meal of some description, don't know where yet, but that will be nice. Harry will need some cheering up - he's in punishment club in school this afternoon! His own fault, entirely! He's his own worst enemy, honestly! He got a 'red card' on Tuesday I think it was...... he's been told I don't know how many times to get off the ice at the edge of the yard...will he? No. So he gets a yellow 'warning' card for more wrong step at this point and it's the red card, red box and punishment club.... so what does he do? Say Sorry when asked why he did it? Oh no, he says he did because he WANTED to go in the yellow box!?! I ask you! Well, his teacher decides that's cheeky to the extreme and he goes straight into the red box! When I asked him why he said that he 'couldn't think of anything else to say'!!!! Honestly! I've told him, next time he can't think of anything else to say - just button it! Don't say anything!!! Or, sorry would have been a good bet! You have to giggle though!

Well have a good weekend all :)

He sounds like a right little character. I have one of those too, although he's 18 now and so lovely.

Glad you're feeling positive. x

He sounds like a lovely, spirited little boy. And yes, I did giggle.

Have a good weekend.

Debs - it's good to know there's light at the end of the tunnel - even it's 12 years away!!!

Suzanne - spirited is one word for it! Glad it gave you a giggle :)

I think you are going to be doing really well soon. Just looking at the beautiful bright colours you have chosen for your blog page says you love life. Don't worry abt the little man, be proud he is cheeky and normal. I was in school for PTA last week and all the teachers had only the same comment for my daughter - she tries to bend very rule a little.But they added, that is normal and I should only start worrying when she is too good.
