mine have a bit more brown (not mud for once) but did very nicely.

When does Moo get his specialist? 

I liked the clinical psychologist today, she seemed intelligent, she listened to me and had read my notes. She didn't get sickly sweet and sympathetic at me either. 

She isn't sure about whether we should work together or not, it's clear to see where the benefits would be and how it could work but it would be at the risk of the progress we've already made. She wants to have 4 or 5 sessions then make her mind up. She really is sitting on the fence rather than just saying it to cover herself. 

I rewarded myself for going to the appointment with a 90p Pride coloured bracelet

My theory is that Bear had eaten the chocolate off by 'eck's shoes before posting the photo.  Oh no, hang on, that was chocolate colour, not actually made of chocolate.

Ooo but I have just spent a lovely evening with SOLBsis, SOLBsisminimini, SOLDsishubby and SOLBsis-stillinMummy'stummy ... SOLBsismini was in bed not being asleep so I didn't get to see her (cept when I peeked in on her fast asleep ... eventually!) 

Look

awwww, so sweet solb. i hope solbsisminimale is being good.

my new shoes are very happy. they have been out twice now.

moo was at the hospital today. he has very swollen tonsils. i have to give him extra feeds to make up for whst he isn't drinking. He sees a specialist to check on his development soon, and will then get his Ed Psych. he should get his OT soon.

Hope everyone is behaving

As if I wouldn't behave.

Good to hear you've put your shoes to good use.  I've had the pleasure of having a new pair of trail shoes that still look new even though they've been worn several times - but thanks to the dry weather haven't got muddy yet.

Aww happy shoes and happy byecks sounds pretty good to me  

Morning LR 

I'm feeling much better today, think my energy has returned. I'm tripping over myself with all the things I'd like to do with today  

I had a really lovely impromptu family day yesterday. Popped out for a walk with Mum, Dad and Spotty in the morning then ended up going to a county fair with the walking crew and SOLBsis and the minis. It wasn't perfect but it sort of was too. I was so happy ... and shattered when I got home. SOLBsismini did an enormous bouncy castle type slide, I wanted to go on toooooo 

Hoping to take her on a bike ride tomorrow, not sure if SOLBsis and minimini are coming yet. SOLBsis didn't sound hugely keen but we'll see. 

WOOOO HOOOOO to feeling happy again  

05/05/2013 at 11:03

Good stuff, SOLB.  Only just got myself up this morning.  I definitely need an easier few days but I do wonder just how long it would take me to get any energy or enthusiasm back.

06/05/2013 at 08:41

If I burn myself out it usually takes at least 3, every single one of those days I question whether I could be doing more and if I'm just being lazy but then when it's really over I know it absolutely ... I never learn mind and still beat myself up over the rest days. Hope you are starting to feel better now

I've had an amazing weekend, but I forgot about the mess I'd left the house in and it was a bit of a shock to come back to it, not helped by the kitchen lampshade having fallen off and smashed while I was away. I think I need to find some superglue and hope I can fix it

06/05/2013 at 09:12

going for a 10 mile walk on Blackpool beach with the dogs and sister inlaw today. hoping to see my brother and nephews sailing in the sea. sun cream on, shades, and not a care in the world

Oh sounds idyllic Sleepy, made me smile and I'm not even going!

06/05/2013 at 09:18

Glad you had fun SCaz but mega ooops to the bombsite. We'll help clean up, virtually of course!!

I'm off to see Divine Sossidge today I might fall asleep on her though having forgotten how to sleep the last few nights. 

I'm just wrapping up the birthday presents I couldn't post to her, OCD is being a demanding old toad and trying to stop me giving her the present that's taken aaages to make I don't think I'm winning - though I think it's let me get away with making her a cake which is still pretty impressive with all the contamination crap that circulates through my head.

Well done Solb. 

A nice young man has come over and fixed my bike for me.  I might take it for a test drive tomorrow
