A day to treasure

Today was one of those days worth noting.

I finally finished my OU essay just in time to catch the deadline. I tidied up and shelved my ever-growing pile of 'books to be read' and 'how to write' books.

Most importantly I watched as son 1, whose confidence has been so badly destroyed by bullying at school, took a courageous step towards reclaiming his life. Then I went to have a coffee with the dear friend whose caring intervention has helped to make that possible.

So glad to hear that your oldest son is starting to move forwards again. It makes a huge difference to the whole family when children start to take control of their lives. I'm having some dilemmas about medication etc. and am just going to post something. If you have any views, do let me know.

Yes I have changed my heading, though not my web address. I think I started writing about one thing but found that I am more interested in what is happening now, and in the future. Thanks for visiting.

A day worth noting indeed! Hope there's so many of them coming that they become the norm.

Well I only posted the essay today...first class as deadline is tomorrow, but there was a reason I couldn't print it off yesterday so have emailed tutor to explain. I wish this course had online submission, it is so much easier!

Marianne, I have left a comment on your blog re the meds.
