I love your photo and the words behind it. We always need a soft giraffe to help us get things in perspective ;-) MD xx

Hello there, found you by jumping around the blogosphere as we all do & just read this post. Poor you & poor you lovely girl. I'm Catholic too so understand the pressures to conform in such a school. I refused to be confirmed at 13. That went down a storm in the 1980's, hope you get more support than I did. I also have a daughter who is not the "round peg in the round hole" at school so sympathise with your situation. My advice is to trust your gut instinct and remind teachers (especially the young ones) they have their whole careers to learn how to be a good teacher. You have one chance with your daughter to do the right thing. Stand your ground. If things don't improve demand a school referral to the Ed' Psych, its nothing to be ashamed of. Please email me if you'd like more info on procedure or just to chat about having a square peg ;-) MD xx

Apparently, just writing about my lazy arsed ways on here wasn't enough to shame me into shaping up. Even in the first 24 hours. So, this morning I find myself passing the 8.30-9am period trying to sort out my blog log-ins a.k.a. procrastinating. I have (had) two Google Accounts for ages and they are driving me nuts as you can't really work with two. I had the old one as my account for blogging when I lived in Singapore and the newer one being my email address with Gmail. I didn't want to delete the old one until I'd had... Continue reading

Copyright Pete Joison. So, due to the lack of substantial posts to date you've already learnt one of big secrets. I am a procrastinator. There. I've said it. Almost out loud. Does typing into the WWW abyss count? Its a weird part of being me that I am a secret procrastinator. Everyone else thinks of me as one of the Nike kind of mums. The "Just Do It" sort who always has a clean house, organised toybox and a bag full of things to occupy small people and portable snacks when I'm on the move. I think I even have... Continue reading
