Weekly Update – 21/03/2017

I am so sorry I am late with my weekly update, but am sure you will understand when I explain about the week we have had. I will start off with C, last week started off not too bad, she had her first home tuition session with her tutor on Tuesday, and managed an hour with a couple of breaks.  We honestly thought things were going to get back to a level where she could start to look to the future taking very tiny steps.  How wrong was I, on…

Mothers Day Gift Guide With Amara

Mothers Day Gift Guide With Amara

            Mothers Day is fast approaching, and the shops are full of gifts, flower shops are preparing for the extra orders and deliveries, and restaurants are advertising special Mothers Day Meals. If like me you have two Mums to buy for my own Mum and my Mother-in-Law, it can get a little stressful trying to find the perfect gift.  Not that they are hard to buy for, as they are both very easy to buy presents for, which of course sometimes makes it harder. I…

It is time again for my weekly update, another week has been and gone.  Is it just me, or are these weeks going far too quickly. As always I will start with C, she has been suffering a bit with all the stress that has been going on lately (will explain a bit more below).  We had our home visit from her tutor and her boss last Tuesday, to see about home tutoring for the time being, until she is well enough to try at school again.  It went really…
