Good Weekend

Saturday started off great, Munch got up and put his Ben 10 game on the Wii, he has always only got so far with this and never been able to get past one bit which he did, so he was very pleased with himself and played on it for a while, he is not one for playing on the Wii much so I did not mind him staying on, if he was wanting to play it day in day out I would limit the time like we do with the computer, but do not feel we need to a present.

In the afternoon Reece had been invited to my friends daughters Birthday party, so off we set, got a bit loss so got there after the entertainer had started, Munch asked me to go with him down to where the children were sitting as he said he was shy, and at that he was gone, and I had a couple of hours to catch up with a few friends I had not seen for I while whilst he was enjoying the party. It was also nice for Munch as he met a few of the children before and he was pleased as they remembered coming to his party back in October.

Talking of birthday’s has reminded me of a conversation I had with Munch a few day’s ago, we were talking about birthday’s and he was saying about the different thing’s he did on his birthday’s, we had his 1st birthday with us in October, he kept saying no he had it with his FC’s, on a few occasion’s when talking about thing’s he has said that they have been in different places to what they were, and because he is such a great wind up merchant, everything normal said and done for wha effect it is going to have on us, I have alway’s though he was doing this on perpouse, but I realised that he actually though that he had his Birthday with his FC’s, when I mentioned the Bouncy Castle that he’d had in the back garden, I could see it suddenly dawned on him that, yes, his 7th Birthday was here, my son had lived in 22 different places, with different Birth Family member’s, that we know about before he was placed with his FC’s, he was one of the lucky ones who only had one FC placement before coming to his Forever Family, know wonder he is so confused about what happened when, where and who with!!!!

On the way home we went to a shopping centre where he spent some of his pocket-money, we had something to eat to save cooking when we got in, and I booked to have our family picture’s done, they look really good as very informal and we can take our dog as well.

Sunday we has a lovely lazy day, again Ben 10, I am sure the novelty will have worn off by tomorrow else we will have to start limiting time.

We went out for Sunday Lunch to a lovely restaurant, it had a great play area for kids outside, so we have decided that this is where we are going to book for our meal after our Celebration Hearing in  court, get me, we still have to put our papers in yet.

Munch is very excited about us sending off the papers on Friday, he was talking about it this morning with a great big grin on his face, when we got to school he wanted me to tell his teacher that he was going to have to have a day off to go to court for our family day, bless him. I said I think we will wait until we have a date!!!

Our other good news this morning is Play Therapy re-starts tomorrow, HURRAH.

WEEK 2

Well 2 weeks in now. The SW was back of her holiday on monday and was on the phone to us on Monday, so good to know we had not been forgotten about. I was working nights so received the voice mail when I woke up. It was too late to phone her, so I phoned her the next day.
The Children
What I shall do here each week is only either add new children we have enquired about, or just up date any that we have heard anything about. I will not go through each group as it will get very tedious if we have nothing to add.
Boy D8, BoyM7, Girl L5 – Well this SW has been in contact with our SW and actually wanted to come out to visit us on 5th August, only 2 weeks time!!!!! We have not even seen their CRP’s yet and I am away on holiday for the week that week anyway, so that was out of the question. I would not let a SW visit without having read a CRP. We know that we have been the only people to enquire about these children and are very wary of being rushes. It is such a big step that we do not intend to let this happen. We still really like what we have seen about these 3 so far though.
Girl S8, Boy C6 These 2 were the children who were from the borough where I was born. Our SW spoke to their FF and spoke about where my family live. To visit my family we would be practical driving past these children’s birth family, so it would be very distressing for them. This has meant that it would be very unpractical, we have had to say good-bye to these 2.
Girl S7, Boy E4, These were on BMP online at the tail end of last week, we emailed their SW and know that as yet our SW has not heard anything from their SW.
Boy R5 Our SW sent this little ones profile out in the post to us and we received it this morning. Although we have always said we wanted more than one, we really liked what we saw. We have phoned and left a message, and emailed, just to make doubly sure that she gets the message and said yes we would be very interested. His SW already has our report but said that she would not read it until we said that we were deffinitly interested, WE ARE!!
Things to do.
  1. We need to get our birth certificates down from the loft so that our SW can enter their numbers on our report
  2. Carpet landing and stairs
  3. Tidy back garden
  4. Tidy front garden
  5. New shed door
  6. Small bedroom
  7. Back bedroom
  8. Shower screen, need either folding or curtain.
