TGIF (eventually) – Fri 2nd Oct 2015

By | October 2, 2015

Today saw the return of anxieties big-time for D.  

They’re normally just burbling away under the surface – a bit like an egg boiling in a saucepan – quietly simmering until …. angst takes over (a bit like turning the gas up) and bam! They’ve arrived! 

They were two-fold today as well.  The class were heading out on a supermarket trip, to get ingredients for their cooking lesson.  D got very upset because the whole class had been told yesterday that if anyone misbehaved or was late, they’d be “left behind to do hard work”.  Naturally neither of these anti-incentives appealed to D and, despite the fact she wasn’t going to be late, she was worried big-time.

There was also another element in that she has a flute lesson after cooking and was worried also that she wouldn’t be back in time for it.

She wasn’t happy going up the stairs and it was a muted wave at the top.

Fast forward (and it was from my viewpoint) to home time and she was visibly agitated as she came down the stairs and attempted a bolt towards the doors.  

Yep, they’d got back in time but she’d felt rushed and didn’t enjoy cooking, but did enjoy her flute lesson  – I guess it was calming for her.

Once we were home and she’d relaxed, our D who looked forward to Friday teatime was back.  Phew!  

I gave her the option of watching T’s football tomorrow and needless to say, we’re having a girlie day!  She deserves it after a very busy time last weekend and her ear problems.  I will too.

Aww! Bless her! I think her school was a bit too harsh saying if anyone misbehaved or was late, they’d be “left behind to do hard work”….Surely they know it could worry some children! I am so glad things are better now….Have a lovely day tomorrow x

I know, poor D, she does take things very literally which others would probably brush off, bless her x
