Small Sprog seems to have settled in well at his new school. So far, so good.
Today he came home with a party invitation. Gosh, how lovely of someone to include him I thought. The invite was from a girl, Emily. He is keen to attend!
This evening I asked him how his day had gone. He said he had had an IT lesson. (His last school didn't do much IT and the children had to share computers, so his IT skills are not quite as honed as his class mates but at his new school they get a computer each and two sessions a week so I am hoping he will do well.)
"How did you get on?" I asked.
"Anna helped me, she's nice."
"Oh!" (Another girl, I thought!)
He played with a friend after school tonight.
Her name was Erin.
Can you see a pattern here?!
Tonight before tea he asked if he could phone a friend from his old school. I handed him the phone and half an hour latter suggested that he ought to put it down as tea was nearly ready.
Olivia's tea was probably on the table too!
My mum rang just a few minutes ago to see how the children are both getting on at school. On hearing Small Sprogs news she muttered, almost disapprovingly, "You've got trouble brewing there"!!
I think she may be right.
Oh, and the photo, I nearly forgot! The chains of pain are no longer binding!! One dose of muscle relaxants and my back feels much better. I must learn to treasure the comfort of a healthy and pain free body, because it really does feel very good.
