No, though I think of her often. I remember she was a bit "internet-ed" out at one point.

I think of her too. It would be lovely to hear from her.

I might have her address somewhere so if no one has a quicker way of contacting her I could send her a letter to let her know we are thinking of her.

Hello there, forumites! mooki did indeed text me, and here I am.

As Jenbt85 said, I had been fairly quiet on the forum for a while, and then my tablet died. I had no regular access to a home computer for a while, and by the time we got a laptop again, I'd got out of the habit of checking the forum. Mentally I've been pretty bogged down for a while, and that's been stopping me from wanting to communicate. Really stupid, actually. I miss you all, so thank you for asking about me and getting in touch. It means a lot to me.

In other news, DS2 has started kinder (pre-compulsory year here in Tasmania) and is doing three mornings a week. Our school offers full days but I'm fetching him home at lunch time as he's gone back to having huge afternoon naps. DS3 continues to struggle with toilet training, and is not really interested in going to kinder, so I'll wait a term or two before sending him. In the meantime, I am enjoying the novel experience of spending regular time with only one child!

DD & DS1 are going through the process of being assessed for ASD. I will be taking both of them down to Hobart for a few days to go to appointments, and have a bit of fun on the side. This summer was pretty crappy for a number of reasons, so it will be nice for them (and me!) to have a break and a chance to enjoy some grown-up stuff without pesky little brothers underfoot. DS3 is showing signs of not being neuro-typical either, but his diagnostic process will be a bit different as he's still under 5 and can be seen locally.

I would love to hear from you all, maybe a very short post to let me know what's been happening? I'll be back by Friday. Love you all :smt060

Oh Pelly, glad you're ok. Sounds like you've got so much going on! Things have been a bit intense for me too, I find foruming helps. Do you want to come and join my Nice Things thread? I'd love the company. :)

Yay! So happy to see you around. It sounds like it's been a big few months, I hope that the assessment process goes well :)

Hello Pelly! :smt006

Sounds like a lot going on. I have been wondering how you are.

Things over here are mostly ok. Just trying to decide if DS1 is ready to go to big school and enjoying the Spring flowers starting to appear.

Gosh you do sound really busy Pelly.

I've just had a pretty crappy week with 3 chickens dying on me and the stress of moving my uncle into a nursing home but over all life is really good. Little Magoo is really thriving at school this year and Miss Magoo has plunged head-long into kinder (pre-school) without so much as a look over her shoulder. Her teacher thinks she needs to see a speechie though so I am trying to figure that out. I'm co GLing my ABA group and have finally started my yoga teacher training course which I have been wanting to do for years. Both are going really well and I'm feeling really happy. DH quit his job 3 or 4 months ago and has been trying to set himself up as an independent consultant but has struggled to find work so he has been around a lot- which has been nice in some ways- but kind of driving me up the wall in other ways. I want my space!!! So we are quite excited that he is starting a new job next week which will hopefully be much less stressful and more rewarding than the last.

This is all stuff I have been meaning to share with the forum for ages but never seem to get around to it so I am telling it to you now Pelly :-D
