I've had to resort to another old photo for 'group'. My favourite type of group-meerkats!
Things have been hectic- dashing around getting nowhere fast.
Guy was supposed to do two college open days today. I got Emma ready before I left for work. Left the addresses and paperwork ready for them with postcodes. THey managed to miss the time on the first one- why they weren't there for 10 I have no idea. How did he think they'd fit 2 in unless they arrived when they were supposed to. then he didn't hvae a satnav with him- so they couldn't find the 2nd college.
I was so annoyed when I got back. We only have one car- the open days are on Saturdays when I have to work. I thought I'd left PRECISE instructions of what they had to do.
I have to provide evidence that we have visited, we have to get one college to assess her to 'admit' they can't meet her needs- so that they are more likely to get a funded placement somewhere. The whole thing sends me into a tizzy of panic. Then they don't even go to the first ones.
He's got no holiday left- so he won't be any help visiting, asking questions and helping me. The whole issue really panics me. I don't know what will happen to her if I can't get a good placement. I can't see her ever being able to work independantly and in turn that really means that I'll never be able to get full time work. They are talking about stopping dla and replacing it with another benefit. DLA wouldn't be enough for Emma to live on.
When we got back today- Holly had managed to get herself trapped in the toilet and then was rushing around in a mad panic because of the fireworks. She has her t shirt on now- and we've had to make her a tent to hide in. She managed to drop off to sleep and was snoring. She feels secure if she's in something dark where the fireworks can't find her. She is really fretting this year.
