Heard on the radio

I’m listening to the radio. I’m listening to a talk show, from earlier in the week, I think its last friday. A mother is on talking about her 12 year old daughter and her friend, who were almost abducted on their way home from school a few days ago.
It is so scary! 5 foreign guys in their 20’s, and one guy in his 40’s approached them, the guys were in a car, and they beckoned the girls to get in. The girls knew not to, but they panicked, and luckily another man in a van came along and blocked the car and allowed the girls time to run off into a nearby store.
God knows what would have happened if he hadnt come along! The girls may have been seriously hurt, or even killed!
Whats the world coming to? Kids cant even walk a short distance home from school nowadays! Everywhere is so unsafe, nothing and no one is safe these days.
I really shouldnt be listening to such things before bed. Now I definitely wont sleep thinking about this.

A quiet thursday

Todays been pretty uneventful. I didn’t get up to much.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night, stayed up for a few hours, as I was unable to go back to sleep.

Eventually at around 6:30 I fell back to sleep. I didn’t wake again until mom woke me to ask if I wanted eggs for breakfast, that was around 8:30.

I’ve been at my parents house all day. I basically just lazed around the house doing nothing. I didn’t care though, I feel we all need a day every so often where we just totally chill out.

My dad made a delicious shephards pie fro dinner. It was so yummy. My sister was working late today, but she dropped me home after work.

I got home to my own house about half an hour ago. Mom came too, she’s doing some things around the house for me.

My sister had laurens parent teacher meeting today also. The teacher said some really lovely things about lauren.

She said lauren is really kind and thoughtful, considerate of others feelings, and that she’s really popular and all of the girls in her class want to sit by her.

She also said Lauren is really good at maths and English.

I’m glad she had a good meeting and Lauren got a good report. That’s really positive. Mom was babysitting the kids while my sister was working this afternoon, lauren wanted to watch youtube on my phone, so I let her. She was quite happy to just sit and watch videos on it.

I don’t have any plans this evening. I just plan on maybe watching some tv. Maybe reading. And possibly doing a little bit of blog surfing.

A little worried…

Im a little bit anxious. I havent heard anything back from school yet. About whether I got a place on the mental health in the community course or not. I handed in my application form two weeks ago. And the course is supposed to start on december 5th. So any day now we should know. I was feeling so anxious about it today, but my friend Denise also applied and she hasnt heard anything from them either. So that is positive I guess. Maybe they are still processing our applications and will be in touch with us next week? I emailed the lady who deals with the funding for the course, because she’s in charge of it well I think she is anyway. So hoping she gets back to me tomorrow morning, she’s out of the office now for the evening so it will be the morning before she will email me back.
I so hope I get on this course! I really want to do it!

#whatif prompt 9-5-2018

Today’s prompt over at what if we all cared is:

high school regrets

*****
Ok, do I have some? Of course. So what are they?

Well not finishing, is my biggest regret. I got sick in my 2nd last year. I was having severe PTSD symptoms. That was when I transferred to mainstream school and was doing my final 3 years at a school here in cork. Not a school for disabled people, but a mainstream school.

I got sick, and was hospitalised for a few weeks. After coming out of hospital, I didnt go back to school. Of course I was also being bullied then, so that didnt help matters.

Thats my biggest regret though, not going back. It hasnt stopped me from going to college though. Getting a degree and an education. I still did that in later years as an adult.

friday update

had a pretty relaxed day. not much going on. didnt go anywhere, was going to go to the basement club but then decided i wouldnt at the last minute. just felt like chilling out and relaxing at my parents without having to go out. also the weather was crappy, it rained on and off all day.

i just lay around in my pj’s. read, and watched tv. did not even go for a walk today like I’d planned on doing. baaad me no exercise today. oh well. there is always tomorrow.

my sister came over after work with the kids. mom was looking after them for an hour then mom and my sister both went to get their school uniforms. my sister spent over 300 euro on all the stuff for the kids for going back to school. thats just on clothing, and stationery, and back packs, etc. no books. the books will be separate.

well thats about it. have no more to add to this post. its a short one for tonight.

Proud of my niece

My sister had laurens parent teacher meeting yesterday afternoon.
I’m very very proud of Lauren. She is only 8 and she got top grades in both maths and English. Her teacher said she is in the top students in her class in those two subjects.
She also said Lauren was very polite, and helpful to other students.
She said that Lauren finishes tasks very quickly and has to be assigned extra work while the other students finish their tasks.
Its so heartening to know she’s exceling in school!
Today she came home with a Christmas card she designed, the school are selling the cards to raise needed funds. Mom and me and laura are all going to buy some of the cards she designed! The scene on them is a snowman and its beautiful.
