Well what a week we've had! I've had some time to craft, but apart from that it's all been about SHMbO and school this week. Firstly I do the card, and then do the waffle underneath so feel free to skip the waffle if you like - I won't be offended, wish I could've skipped the waffle this week!!

So the waffle, you regular readers of my waffle will know that we've had problems getting Emily, who is nearly 6, (aka SHMbO: She Who Must be Obeyed for my new followers) off to school just recently. We've been in and seen the Head and things seemed to be going better. They say she is a very bright girl academically (takes after me there then!!) but lacking in self-confidence (exactly me!!!) so they were going to work on her self confidence hoping that she'll feel happier in class.
Well the class teacher has gone temporarily, we aren't entirely sure why but there are rumours!, and a new temp teacher come in. SHMbO changed completely and was so much happier to go to school - result! Maybe, along with the extra attention, that was the problem?
Nope it would appear not. We're back to tears and not wanting to go in, being 'poorly' again. End of tether time on Monday - she was allowed off school as she had a cold, within 2 hrs she was bouncing - literally bouncing - on the sofa. Said enough you are well enough to go to school, off you go. Cue tears, 'don't want to go's, you can't make me's'. Well half way up the stairs with mummy at her back 'helping' her up the stairs - it turns out she doesn't want to go to school as there is a boy in her class who has been being rude, pushing her, kicking her, and threatening to steal her morning snack!
Once she told us this she was much happier to go to school, so off we trot and drop her off - briefly speak to head who said they will make sure SHMbO not bothered today. Monday - happy at school.
Tuesday - spoke to class teacher when I drop her off. She says nothing seen of boy picking on SHMbO, but they would keep an eye on her. When I go to collect at chuck out time - I can see SHMbO hanging back from this boy, who was in the line in front of her, get her and she wants to go straight home - now! I asked what's the matter - she said this boy has just said he's going to kill her! Oh My Word - well it takes a lot for me to get annoyed, but my God I was sparking at this. Spoke to the teacher for her to point out this boys' mum and she said the mum wasn't there yet. They took us back into school - teacher and head spoke to Em and I calmed down a bit!! Seems boy and mum were in office 'to be spoken' to! Went home and spoke to Em more, he also told her that he 'would pull my brains out with a coconut', now I know that upset her but I had to smile!!
Wednesday (only today, really??) - off we trot to school again. Big fuss made of Em, and promised that she'll be watched, he'll be watched and he'll not be allowed to speak to her.
We will see. I go to get her at 3.30 today - they'd better have kept their word - otherwise I will be seriously p'd off.
If you are even vaguely interested in this saga, I will be doing updates no doubt!
