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…

As parking is difficult there, I rang to…

My Week – 21/11/15

Oh my goodness, how cold has it suddenly become, we have been quite lucky really as not been too bad, yes a bit chilly, but today it is freezing and although it did not settle, we even had a bit of snow earlier.
