Re: One of our own

I've just learned of this on FB and came here immediately for the first time in years to pass on my condolences to any and all who remember her, particularly those of her who were much closer to her than I was. It's a pure tragedy. We were not close friends but she was a lovely person who was always...

I used one for both my kids and loved it. Alex was only in his for 3 months because he's so tall and that one had limited foot space. Evie was in hers for 6 months, and I still get it out when she's unsettled so I can be closer to her. I liked the sides. I didn't care about not being able to feed he...

I don't understand how learning different styles can make you write badly. I changed schools about 10 times and it didn't have a negative effect on my writing at all. I learnt a few different styles and used what I'd learned to develop my own style. My handwriting is quite neat and flowy. Can someon...

I'm currently having my second (or is it third?) period since Evie's birth and she's barely 4 months old. Exclusively breastfed.

I had private obstetricians but was a public patient at the hospital/s. Both times my doctor was the one performing the surgery.

I left home at 16. Family life became too difficult and there was a senior super school opening in a different town. So I still went to school but my life outside school was vastly different to that of my friends. This was sometimes a cause for envy but I think that if they had lived it, they might ...

Alex will be 5 next month and he doesn't have any of those behaviours so I can't advise there, but he's still not going to school. He's smart and social but I feel in my heart that he's not quite ready and I wanted to hold him back anyway because of his age. It doesn't mean there's something wrong w...
