Wow, its been 18 months since the last update. So much has changed!
I have a regular contract, 4 days a week as an e-learning specialist running an online community and designing programmes for educators. Such fun! Plus I still have my own Fluffy Clouds Ltd for advertising. My singing lessons are going well, I can sing quite a bit of Schubert now!
The rest of the family! John (21) took a year out of Bristol Uni and did a lots of things like climbing mountains in Scotland, helping the Open Air Mission in Brum for 3 months, became a support work for autistic people, but now he's going back again for his second year. Oh, he bought a car last week and is a man of freedom!! I feel I something has fundementally changed.
Lizzie will be 18 next month, she is half way through college, she found the first year really challanging and despite getting A's at GCSE has dropped Maths and Chemistry and is now doing A Level Biology, French and AS Psychology along with an extended project. She's saying she might do an extra year so she can finish the Pysch and work in the hospital to get experience. She wants to be a nurse and is on the housekeeping staff aready! She says that she's glad she had a hard year, things had come too easily until now and she feels it has taught her some humility.
James (15) is doing well, he's is now the tallest in the family, and he's stated in a new 14-19 school which focuses on business and engineering. He has to wear a suit to work! How smart is he. James has always ploughed his own furrow, he got himself into this school and I trust he will take ownership of his education.
Fiona, (23), my beautiful wife is as wonderful as ever, we celebrated our 25 wedding anniversary this year. She continues to be a bank nurse and the rest of the time gets nits out of kids hair here on the estate! She amazing. : )
Thanks for reading, how you are well, any thoughts or advice on child rearing gratefully recieved!
