As promised a few more pictures.
These were from the day we went and done our dolphin swimming.
I cannot even begin to explain the feelings i had the day we went to do this....it was a total rush, and even though everyone said the water was cold i felt all warm inside.
I must just add also that my children were absolutely brilliant the whole time we were away and were a credit to me.
Let me know when you have seen enough pics, i could be adding them for weeks at this rate lol.
lots and lots of love and kisses
hello everyone how are you all.
yes i am still here, reading all of your journals daily as the alerts appear in my email in box or pop up on the screen.
have been having quite a rough time here of late. mostly problems with charlie boy and his new school. i was phoned last week to say he had had an accident and could i go up.....i said ok i will be as quick as i can...they said please asap there is an ambulance on ots way!
so off i race and get to school. no ambulance to be seen so i calmed down a bit. started walking through the school with a very worried receptionist. "it cant be that bad if i beat an ambulance" i said.....they are up the field with him already, was the reply i got!
so i ran....and ran....and ran. how i didnt pass out i will never know.
he was on a spinal board when i got there with neck colar on and loads of straps to keep him imoblised.
they then went on to give him morphine. at this point i was close to collapse myself.
went to the hospital and after he had been checked over by the doctor, while we were waiting to have xrays, he told me what had really happened. an older boy, year 11, picked him up and threw him to the ground as he thought my boy had spat at a girl!
you can imagine how i reacted.
i straight away phoned the school and told them what had happened and named the boy who had assulted mine.
we were finally discharged, although they wanted to keep him in for observation, with a wiplash and concussion, with strick instructions to have him with me at all time over the next few hours.
he still hasnt gone back to school as he is refusing to go...who can blame him.
on a nicer not we are off on our holiday to Orlando on the 26th November, so less that 2 weeks now! any good advice for me as regards to the travelling and things to do will be greatly welcomed!
take care everyone
still love you all lots!

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle).
This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors /advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.
Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.
AGAIN, PLEASE TELL 10 FRIENDS TO TELL 10 TODAY
I'm going to America! We will be swimming with Dolphins in Orlando.
need to save money so that charlie can come as bethany and myself are having it all expensives paid through the charity "dreams come true" http://www.dctc.org.uk/
Will have to put a begging bowl round my neck!
cried and cried when i got the phone call about it earlier. need to go by February as charlies fare will go up from being a child to a teenager when he turns 12. so save save save is what i'm going to do....somehow?
love you all....i do read all your journals daily i promise!
Subject THE LONELY BRAIN CELL
You'll love it !!!!!
THE LONELY BRAIN CELL
"Hello?"she cried, but no answer. "Is there anyone here?" she cried a little louder, but still no answer. Now the female brain cell started to feel alone and scared and yelled at the top of her voice,
"HELLO, IS THERE ANYONE HERE?"
"We're down here ..."
i told you on my last entry that I had news.....
i'm not going to tell you about that now today as i have BIGGER news.
(sorry fella's that read this is a female thing so click the red x now if you dont want to read)
Bethany started her periods today.
I am devistated. on her last hospital visit we discussed (for a whole 2 minutes) about this happening. i was told that they could stop her from having this every month, but if they start there was nothing that could be done. so now there is nothing that can be done as they are rubbish at giving you help.
I have tried to explain about this to her. all she can say is that her boobys hurt. she keeps asking for me to get a doctor.
She will have a birthday next weekend and will be 13. had a letter from school yesterday to say that she has seen a speech therapist and has the understanding of a 4 year old! i'm am stuck as to how you would explain about such stuff to someone who is 4.
so now i have something else to worry about.....sigh.....tears.....sigh.
would i of felt like this is Bethany wasn't like she is???
love you all anyway so that makes it a bit better.
woo hoo sara!
i am back.....for good! or until the pc decides it doesnt love me anymore lol.
have been planting in the garden....tomato's, courgettes and peppers. dont hold your breath i will manage to kill them, although this is my first attempt at veggies!
i always manage to kill houseplants lol
I havent really been up to much just the everyday normal stuff.
have got a piece of important stuff to tell you but will post it in the week!
love you all
i'm still here as some of you know! Shane hasnt yet come to get his pc, so am using it still as much as possible. several things have happened since i was here.
all accusations made by social sevices have been proven to be untrue...you all knew that though. they have made a request to the variety club for money to build me a conservatory....do you think it is maybe an act of guilt? i do! but hell if they want to build me one they can... although it will never make up for what they have done to me.
bryce was rushed to hospital at 2am last thursday morning as he couldnt breathe properly. the emergency services were brilliant. rapid response was almost breaking down my door within 5 minutes of nhs direct calling them, the paramedics arrived 2 minutes after that. when we got to the hospital i was a nervous wreck, bryce on the other hand thought it was a hoot too see all the flasing light...thats how bad he was. he had a pulse of 189 and blood oxygen of only 91%. they couldnt hear any noise on his chest but after having an xray they found a big black patch at the bottom of his left lung...he had pneumonia...a seconday thing to the chest infection he had a few weeks back. we came home at 2pm the next day. he is back to my happy cheeky 3 year old already. he will be starting playgroup for 5 sessions a week as of monday coming up. i must stop calling him baby bryce!
bethany was sick on saturday, charlie has it today, bryce will have it tomorrow lol.....hope i dont get it!
I want to wish Jeannette a speedy recovery from her operation. you have been so brave Jeannette.
now i have to tell you Joyce, I am so very sorry about your mother. it must be a dreadful time for you, and a terrible shock. I dont know how you are coping. DH will see you through it all i'm sure. I'm sending you lots of love and hugs. i think of you often.
Joan...........have you got a doctors appointment yet? i'll be after you!!!!!!
sara...are you ready for the jelly to go back to school!!!! i will be round for a cake.
Stuart............hope millie smells a little better tonight.
Jan and Ally i love you both.
I hope i havent missed anyone out?? appologies if i have
anyway....i must be off as charlie is about to start honking up again...he has gone a funny green colour!
love you all so much, but you all know that already....well i hope you do!
ps i'm sure there is something that i have forgotten to say......................................
just wanted to say goodbye.
shane is moving his stuff out tonight or tommorow so that means the pc is going.
i will be back eventually when i get my pc mended.
i love you all so much and will miss you loads.
i will think about you all the time.
i'll send you all an email with my address so if you want we can keep in touch by letter, let me know in the comment section if you want it.
ok i'm going now as i'm crying
i'll never EVER forget any of you.
Ever think about it? A lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female.
i just wanted to say thanks to ALL of you who left me a comment from the entry i wrote yesterday.
I really thought I wouldnt get any! But i'm so glad i did....made me feel all warm and happy.
also wanted to point out that the reason we have a social worker isnt because i have ever done anything wrong in the past. As Bet-Bet goes into respite care for 2 nights a month she is classed as a "looked after child" so therefore we have a social worker as they are the ones who arranged the respite care.
We all have colds here today, apart from Charlie Boy. he was 11 a couple of weeks ago and my baby was 3 last week!!!! He will be "the baby" when he is 20 lol.
its been a really busy couple of weeks here. had charlies birthday, bryce's birthday, clares birthday, mum and dads ruby wedding party this saturday and mothering sunday. no wonder i have no money!!!
mum decided at the weekend that we will be going on holiday again this year to the isle of wight. we had a lovely time last year, it was so hot! we are going in may this year as bethany really doesnt do heat lol. so if any of you know of some good places to visit let me know.
i have just remembered i have good news! Bethany doesnt need a hearing aid anymore! YAY! i cried so much, from happiness. they think its helped having her tonsils out with the hearing.
I will be off now as we have doctors shortly for bethany and bryce as they both have bad chests, colds are lethal in this house. can you remember charlies high speed ambulance ride last year from not being able to breathe? that started as a cold. bethany has had pneumonia twice from a cold. bryce gets a bad chest from them as do I. i am lucky that my doctor understands all this and he will give us antibiotis hopefully as we have to be well for the ruby wedding party on saturday. can you believe 40 years.....seems like a life sentance to me!!
love you all lots
ok i am back!
i have lots to tell you
firstly i want to say this. Jeannette I have been thinking about you all weekend. you are a survivour. my thoughts will be with you all the time.
ok heres whats been happening
had a breakdown...again...not the car my brain.
am getting better....i think
have had a lot of trouble from social services.....thats whats made me ill.....social worker has now said she should never of said to me what she did. was accused of neglecting my beautiful daughter. as you all know my life is devoted to all my kids, and i just couldnt undrstand what she was trying to say, as its a load of rubbish. every proffessional person involved with my daughter has promised me i have done nothing wrong. the social worker is very young, new to her job, and new to England (she is romanian) and we have come to the conclusion that she was trying to make a good impression. done that alright. cant stop appologising to me now as she can see she has hurt me more than anything else ever before in my life
had my appointment on friday for the lump in my mouth. they think it is a polyp, so it has to be removed as could become cancerous. am not going to worry about it.
have been reading your journal religiously they have kept me from really cracking up some days
hope you all have had a good weekend
Appologies for lack of entries, not been having a very easy time here just lately.....kids are ok dont worry, its more me.
A question for you all
If you have taken out a bank loan, could it be possible for them to ring you out of the blue to ask you if you want a different interest rate?
I know its a silly question, and as i have never had a bank loan before i cannot answer it.
You would be doing me a massive favour if you know the answer.
love you all lots and lots
