Today we had our initial booking assessment for counselling for #1 Son.
It’s to assist with his IEP – the psychologist referred us and I would be stupid to refuse the help. In my view anything that helps him handle the world and his place in it is a bonus.
Information will be shared between the counsellor, the school and his Primary Care Physician. Again, this just seems smart and sensible – it limits the risks of triangulation and keeps everyone on the same page.
The counsellor seems lovely, and I hope will be dubbed another Feelings Lady. We start fortnightly sessions on Tuesday from 02 January.
This is a very positive step.
Yesterday I had my nails done again
I’ve switched to a more local salon which is half the cost of the one based in Cambridge.
I’m learning the value of shopping around though, as the wonderful H (from downstairs) and her daughter were still shocked at the $30 price tag attached to these festive lovelies.
So, she has suggested that I go with her in the New Year and we get them done together. And I’m really happy to do that.
Last week I popped down with a pretty hamper of goodies to say thank you and merry Christmas, as I firmly believe in kind gestures (and we all know I really want to make friends here)!
She was shocked speechless but in a good way
Last night she came up with a beautiful plate of hand baked cookies on a “Giving Plate” which we are to in some way inscribe our names on and pass on.
I’ve already scoffed about half the cookies (yes I let the kids help), asked for the recipes and offered knitting lessons in return.
I’m so grateful for the offer of friendship. She seems so nice, we seem to get on well and heck she lives downstairs.
Long may this continue.
