Unlucky for some.

19 Feb

I have been stressed, moody and on edge so much these last few days but who can blame me.

My life is a soap opera right now. Why is it that god decides to land so much on one person at one time. You can guarantee if one thing goes wrong  more problems will follow. Yes there is the huge issues at little mans school, The added pressure of an upcoming court trail and now to make things worse my home is undergoing massive plastering works involving knocking all the hallway and landing walls back to brick. Can you imagine the amount of dust and dirt? Of course we could not remain living in the house. Harley is just a baby and Little man and his sensory problems well it would have made him crazy.!! But being away from home has also caused its own set of problems. Yes my mother who we are staying with only lives streets away but it could be miles away for all it matters to little man. His routine has gone out the window and his finding it hard to deal with ( So am I ) As always his sister is paying the price for his emotional discomforts. Yep his on the war path and poor Alice is the target. I have been keeping a close eye on him as his been lashing out at her and it’s making everyone really unhappy. I have tried sitting him down and explaining why we need to be here and why it’s important we pull together and fight it out but to him it’s just a massive inconvenience and I have caused his life to tip upside down. Whats worse is dad is not here to help with his melt down as his watching the house why the workmen are there.

I  myself  had a major melt down. The workmen were messing around and not doing the agreed works. These are works that have been rebooked so many times due to problems with poor communication within the housing. It got so bad I was in the middle of a complaints investigation and that was the reason they had agreed to fix all of the problems within the house over a three-day period. Well he was saying nope that’s not what ive been told to do with every single thing I pointed to. I was getting so angry and had to get a manager to come back around. In the end I throw everyone out and phoned the complaints officer in tears. I told him apart from once again not carrying out agreed works I was being spoken to in such a rude manner ( The manager ) He sorted it after I threatened to phone the local paper.  Three children one being a new-born and one on the autistic spectrum living in dangerous conditions would make a great headline. He knew I had a ton of pictures to back me up and having already appeared in the paper after our ceiling collapsed in April 2009 I wasn’t joking. So now all the agreed works would be carried out plus anything else I needed doing. This was a wonderful outcome but meant works would continue for a longer period of time. This could be at least two weeks. A horrid thing for my little man. What an adjustment he would have to undertake. I also didn’t want this to affect him getting off to school of a morning as they return after the half term break on Monday. I would also have to go home and clean like crazy as the dust would be to overpowering for any of the children. When I popped home yesterday I was in tears the house was wrecked. If little man could only see his room he would freak. Worse of all the workmen had let us down again! The lazy gits had not covered anything with dust sheets I really don’t know if all our belongings can be saved 😦

Being at my mums has had an upside. Mum has watched the kids a few times giving me the chance to concentrate on finding a solicitor ( something I was having a huge problem doing ) It seemed all the firms I rang didn’t deal with that type of case I was faced with going it alone. But just when I fault things could not get much worse A solicitor rang and said he would help me. I have an appointment Monday. I really hope that he thinks we can win. I feel sick thinking that school are going to get me prosecuted when they are to blame.

Well lets hope the weekend brings smiling faces 🙂 🙂

A well over due update!i

God how slack am I! I really can’t believe that I have not posted anything since the beginning of July ( How poor and Lazy is that )

Well family life is going OK. Little man and his sister are great and looking forward to returning to school On Monday. We had so much planed for the school holidays but sadly not much of it happened. As most of you know I’m 7m pregnant and my iron levels have been up and down making me really tired! Then there was the summer heat which was horrid:( So we are hoping to take the children away for a few days before baby is born. As there was cases off swine flu at little mans school before they broke up they had a extra week off so little man did not get to meet his new teacher. I am a little worried we will have problems! Like most children with ASD he hates change. I have tried to prepare him for this but who knows? His not happy about not working with Mr Ally anymore who he formed a fantastic bond with. Also as most know little man is a very poor sleeper and has been taking Meds for sometime. Since breaking up his routine has gone up the wall and it has been hard trying to get the little bugger to bed lol. Lets hope all turns out OK and the new school year goes well. I’m really hoping his school pull out all the stops and the school Senco goes all out on offering and giving him any extra support my son may need. His never really been a fan of school but I’m hoping this year he gets more happy and settled as I really don’t want to stress things out more with the sudden change of a new school! And with a new baby on the way  I want little man to be as comfortable as possible.

Talking off being comfortable can you believe our house is still not completed after the ceiling fell in back in April! Yes they have done the ceiling but the rest of  the room is still a building site. We had just spent a fortune decorating only to see it turn to dust. We are still waiting on the walls being plastered as the impact of the fall caused the walls to blow:( This is supposed to be done this coming Monday ( finger and toes crossed ) Our new Kitchen and bath room is going to be done by November phew. Just in time for the birth of my son. I really don’t want my baby coming home to a war zone.

Last but not least I really need to rant. When I  logged on tonight I discovered a comment on one of my post that upset me so much I was in tear! Normally I would not let stuff like this upset me as their are some dumb people out there with nothing but crap to say but hay maybe it’s my hormones! This person Wanted to tell me his views on people with Aspergers. Well my son is a retard, a wimp and needs to be locked up. Whoever you are please don’t comment on my blog anymore!!! You are a truly sad individual and i prey u get whats coming to you.

Well thanks for reading and I will  be sure to update soon.
