We’re back, we’re back

2 Jun

Hello!! That was an unexpected break in blogging. That’s the longest the TKOE blog has been offline for 5 years. Have you missed us?? We’ve missed you.

Work was just crazily busy and overwhelming for a whole month which had an impact on the whole family. Then last week was a week of recuperation and relaxation with family and friends. And there was no physical time for any TKOE activity at all. Just nothing. Not to mention no spare mental space to string more than two words together.

Whilst that was going on, Cal has defied all expectations by doing well enough in his NVQ housekeeping at Foxes to be highly likely to be able to do additional NVQ modules in another discipline. So he’s back there for his third – and final 😦 – year in September. And then the really difficult bit comes – what is he going to do??

He airily texted Chris to tell him he’d had a blood test. Just a regular check up and he’d told the doctor ‘ow’. We’re not entirely sure if it was him having one or he was reporting on someone else. I suppose we ought to find out really. Concerned and responsible parents would.

Two things to report on TKOE – thank you John Paterson for your magnificent donation.

And thank you Hope Support for the lovely picture of the Y Team with the TKOE donation. See how they’ve customised it???? Thank you to all of you for raising the money for them 🙂 🙂


Back later – but not tomorrow because …. It’s my birthday 🙂

Jo xx

    Happy birthday Jo! Yes, we’ve missed you but sometimes other stuff just takes over. Glad you had a good week off last week and fingers crossed that work settles into something more manageable (as far as these sort of jobs can),
    Great news of Cal (success with his course, not the blood test). Won’t Foxes give you some idea of possible options after next year based on what other star students have done? I think Cal will continue to surprise you though…love to you all. x

    Hi Jo
    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you (etc…), hope you have a lovely day.
    I’m hoping that the donation from John Paterson was actually my birthday present! We (the Paterson’s and me and the Fatman) don’t give presents anymore, we do donations. And well done to Cal for his success with his NVQ.
