Rain rain and more rain We have to go boating today to get back and its a long 8hr day across the flatlands. Still, on a positive note there are only two locks to do so C can stay inside in the dry.
As I stepped out it stopped raining and stayed dry all day except for one shower whist we worked the second lock. No available mooring in Whittlesea aso we are now tied up at Stanground on the lock landing. Tomorrow we have first booking for the lock and back onto Gods river, weather forecast worse than today, we shall see.
Its difficult to soar like an eagle when you're surrounded by turkeys
Excellent news thebfg ... kids will be so excited too
They are, except the older one is refusing to change schools. The local ones aren't doing the courses he wants and he is studying key stage 4 yet the year he is in locally are only KS3.
So we have some issues to iron out.
He struggles to make friends and has some problems that previous schools just wanted to punish him for but the current one has worked with him and the results are he is in top sets for the main lessons.
Well. After 10 years of waiting on the council list. We have, subject to a few checks been offered a house.
Finally going to get a garden and a bedroom each for the kids.
Quite excited really. Another 20 minutes away from work, but I can deal with that.
Its right on the edge of the New forest, so 50 metres away from Nice walks, rides and wild camping.
And importantly a drive way so I can actually get stuck into restoring the van.
Thats really good news. I hope you will all settle in and reading through the thread ref schools...its understandable that he's worried..lets face it we all would be. Take time to address his fears, with Covid everything is all change anyway. It may be that if the school he changes to is aware of the problems they can work with you. As to subjects he's taking, thats a tough one to sort if not offered elsewhere.
