Project 365 Week 1

I have decided to take part In The Boy And Me ‘s fantastic Linky ‘Project 365  “A Photo A Day, Every Day, For A Year!”

It’s such a lovely concept of being able to see what this Madhouse gets up to in a year. The Rules for this fantastic linky are below:

  • Project 365 is your project and therefore it should be you taking the photograph.
  • Every Saturday at 8pm until 11.59pm on Sunday, the linky will be open to share a favourite photo of the previous week (or a weekly collage). Photos from a blog, Instagram, Tumblr, Posterous or the 365project.org site can be linked up.
  • Please include my 365 badge or a textlink onto the linked blog post or the sidebar so that people can find the linky more easily to see other entries and join in on the community. (badge can be found HERE )

I have chosen to do a weekly collage that i will post and link up with on a Saturday, however i have obviously been in a cupboard on my own this week as i only discovered the linky last night so this weeks is posted later than it should be!! sorry The Boy and Me!! I will however show support by visiting all the posts from this weeks to show some 365 love!

When 4 Became 3 An Update …

Image

Firstly I have to say thank you so much to all my lovely followers that commented on my recent post ‘When 4 became 3’. As this was such an emotional time for me I felt I wanted to post about this even though when I set my blog up I didn’t intend to pour my heart out, I did feel that there are others out there that may benefit from feeling they weren’t alone.

I have to report that Bethany is back home with us (Although her dad has told her its only for a few weeks to see how it goes) She has now returned to school and we have all sobbed buckets.

Bethany has told us not only does she feel angry most of the time she doesn’t know why, she also says she misses her dad and wants to see him more. (Since April he confirmed her will spend more time with her than the 2 days a fortnight … it’s never happened)

I have I think rightly or wrongly got the ball rolling with hopefully some support for Bethany and for us as a family to work out the problems we have.  We have requested help and should be getting the help we need soon.

I can’t tell you all how pleased I am that Bethany is home and that we can now sort things out. Although right now I am feeling very disheartened about the fact I contacted our GP and school about the problems we were having a month ago and I am still waiting for the school to fill in the relevant form to get us some support…. I will NOT give up!
