>I’m so exhausted – think we all are.

My hope for a successful visit to the hypnotherapist did not go very well as my son refused to talk. The guy was great though and we all tried to get him to relax but to no avail. He didn’t even charge us and we hope to go back again.

On a brighter note we then went to pick up our new dog. He was called patch, but after much debate he has a great new name – Hector. (Stanley was pipped at the post). This means less time in front of the computer and more time in the park…

He is so sweet natured and very calm. Have’nt had chance to take photos yet.

Another bright note is that I bought a film scanner off ebay and now have the huge task of putting my old travel photos on flickr.

Here are a couple of the ones that seem to be popular.

    >amazing. was reading some of your older posts. I live in the US, in a state with schools of choice and special education requirements. my schools seem to be bending over backwards to provide services and accomadations for my kids. hope things go better for you.

    >Hi Lou
    Perhaps you will have better luck next time. How does Hector seem to like his new home. I do love your photos from your pre digital camera days…The ones with the children (Surprise) and the older men are wonderful. Did you get your email with the poster??? Flickr had a great laugh on everyone for April Fools Day making everybodys photos #1. I wasn’t sure if you saw it so I made your poster and emailed it to you.

    >Thanks for your comments.

    Big day today – our first visit to the psychiatric team. We’re all a bit nervous about it. Will write about it later. So worried that my son will refuse to talk to them…

    Thanks for the poster Kym. It was a great joke.

    I just stumbled upon your page after seeing your photos on flicker (they are amazing!). I am so sorry about all you are going through. You are fighting a noble fight. I don’t understand the mentality of schools. They are supposed ot be there for the children…

    My thoughts are with your family.
