This week’s #WOTW and #R2BC – 26/11/15

By | November 26, 2015

Isn’t that a great image? I found it on which is a website I’m going to explore more, seeing as how anxieties can floor my children at any given time.

I absolutely love the “Be You” message too.

I’m going to mention my Word for the Week further down but, wanted to share this rather mega happening for D this week:

As regular readers of my blogs will know, she’s been subjected to bullying this term. Not physical bullying but nasty, spiteful,emotional bullying, the kind that would leave any victim questioning themselves, but when you’re anxiety-ridden, it can get a tad worse.

Things came to a head a couple of weeks ago and I had “words” with the two individuals outside school.  D was worried that I would make things worse but, this is what she said to me as I tucked her in last night:

“I’m 100% sure that the bullies have stopped.  Because xxx went past me at lunchtime today and high-fived me.” 

No nasty words, no snideness, just a friendly high-five and she was so happy when she told me.

Isn’t that great? She is a much happier girl and it shows, she was in her room singing way last night and that’s always a positive sign.

Talking of positivity, my word for this week is:

Confidence and again, I really like this image.  

Onto the R2BC bit:

1.  The Choir

D’s school are putting on a production next year and preparations have started.  The staff are wonderfully patient in practising and practising with the SN children, making them confident and believe that they can not only perform their roles but also in front of an audience. A big ask.

Our songbird sang a rocky version of “Let It Go” in the audition and has a place in the senior choir! She is very excited about it and we are extremely proud of her for putting herself up for the audition process.

2.  Team work

T’s confidence with his football team is growing too, it was a knock-back in the summer when his previous term disbanded.  He’s adjusting to playing a year up and working within the team.  Football is so important to him and it’s a relief that he’s getting his feet back (as it were).

3.  New experiences 

These are happening every week with my Comms work.  I’m never going to be a “wahey, look! I’m here!” gal, I’m happy being me and getting things done.

Speaking of new experiences; poor T has many sensory issues and the thought of him eating anything he cooks in school lessons leaves me thinking “urgh”, but he’s following the recipe, smelling these strange smells and encountering the weird textures.  This week’s Risotto recipe tasted okay too! 

4.  Decisions, decisions 

Now, you can help me, I’m going to an awards event tomorrow and can’t decide between:

This one.  My lovely purple staple.  Fit and flare.  I wore it to BritMums this year and loved it.

Or, this one.  Fab colour and it’s got a sheer overlay over a shorter underdress with a front that sways open as you walk. 

And finally, this.  Another lovely colour and the hem detail makes it great to wear.

All with black wedged suede boots cos it’s too cold for bare feet!

How’s your week been?
