Monday – Planned to meet up with Bubble and Squeak’s sisters. Only one of them turned up due to a last minute realisation that it was actually a school day for older one. Cue an upset Bubble. Pulled it back with equine therapy and a slice of just-moist-enough Victoria sponge. Cake points: 3
Tuesday – our Together Forever Day. 4 years in and we know better than to make a big thing of it. Instead we had salted caramel cake and chocolate fingers. Cake points: 4
Wednesday – Intro to Non Violent Resistance training. Have yet to be convinced about NVR, but this is mostly due to the evangelical zeal with which ‘graduate parents’ (yes! they really were referred to as such!) harped on about its effectiveness. No cake available in training – had to make do with a Bourbon biscuit. Cake points: 0.5
Thursday – Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy session with Bubble, who was very brave. All of us in tears. Managed to break psychologist’s new sofa as Bubble launched herself at me. Sofa repaired by @proseccosue (she’s a marvel, that woman). Everyone very tired. Went for cappuccino cake, and a cappuccino. Cake points: 4.
Friday – Assessment visit from Social Worker, who had closed our case only the week before. Went swimmingly, and am expecting a positive result for Squeak in the not-too-distant future. Smashed social services’ paltry mid-week Bourbon offering with some extra posh chocolate cookies.
Topped off the week of cake by a visit to mum’s. She had made cheese scones. If there’s one thing better than cake it’s a decent warm scone baked with a loving heart. Cake points: 5.
Adoption? Its (easier with) a piece of cake.
