I am taking it all rather personally at the moment and I feel that I have failed Amelia something terribly....but saying that, the statement I fought to get her will be needed to get her a placement in the already oversubscribed SN school anyway. I need to look at it that Amelia certainly hasn't failed, she has come on in leaps and bounds and in the one and only year she has had ANY support she has jumped several P levels and is certainly not alone at the bottom of her mainstream peer group. It is the school, the LEA, the system that has failed but how much longer can I jeopodise her education whilst I fight the system and what will it do to us as a family if we have to go through that again?
All in all I am trying to de-clutter and de-stress my life a little....so what better motivation than a bit of crafty retail therapy!!!!!!! I have placed a few little orders and even popped along to a local shop yesterday....before venturing into Toys'r'us for Amelia's birthday pressies!!!
Here is what I have got so far!
A Scalloped square nestabilities set
A Cuttlebug Embossing folder-mesh
Edwin's Snowman- Magniolia stamp
A new StazOn
Some paper stumps
4 new Prismacolors
A pencil sharpener
Watch out for the next installment of Dilly Dally Dingle goes mad with PayPal!
Hmmmm....now all I need is a tiny little bit of clear workspace to try some new stash out!
