Another NUMBER challenge!

I am struggling day by day at the moment with just SO much going on with school issues and Amelia's education and health. I still have DLA forms to complete and my NVQ and now work as well.....I just need a few 48 hour days to help keep me afloat! (and possibly catch up on a bit of much needed sleep too!) I could have easily cried my eyes out in the school playground this afternoon but somehow I found the strenght to hold myself together....LOL....although after a nice glass of wine later I may may well curl up and have a little cry to myself then! I have even got the possiblility of Home ED going through my mind now, constantly fighting the system to get my daughter the appropriate support in mainstream is wearing me down but I cannot and will not be beaten when her education is at stake. I haven't a clue which way to turn next to be honest!
This morning I had a rush 50th Anniversary card to make but my mojo was buried under the piles of stash I had left abandoned in my craft room...I shuffled a few papers around and ended up with a completely mish mash card, but any card complete was enough for me today- at least I can say I have achieved something!
I made a feature of the 50 for the challenge over on Crafts by Carolyn's.

I just wish I could put together mish mash cards like this Adele, it is beautiful. I wish you well in your endeavour with your daughters education my friend has had terrible problems with her sons education to the extent she pulled him out of the schoolbefore the start of last term! Thanks to some financial help from a close family friend he now attends a local small private school and is flourishing at the moment but there is still the hurdle of senior school looming its ugly head, but I know that she has had to battle constantly. Sending you hugs. x

Your card is gorgeous and I would like to wish you all the luck in the world with your battle. I'm going through something similar with my son who has aspbergers, has cost us £17,000 to date getting him statemented and into a special needs unit, fighting the LEA is hard work but its 2 rounds to us!!

Sorry to hear you're having to deal with such hassles.
Great that you can 'escape' with your creations ... a least for a while. Don't let them wear you down.
