I can hardly believe it but today was Lapwing's first day as a Peer Mediator at her primary school. Yep she has the responsibility to help sort our problems for children during lunchtime play. Peewit her brother thinks her new role is worthy of snorting laughter of disbelief. I am rather impressed the school have taken such a leap of faith, and delighted that Lapwing has the self esteem and confidence to go for it! We shall see this evening how it went. If someone had told me this would happen even a year ago I would have been very sceptical, but shows how our little ones can surprise us!

Mum to AS Big Fish (19, 16 years at home) and AS Little Minnow (13, almost 6 years at home), came separately, and now a wonderful, feisty horse who lets me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services and a top of the range adapted van provided by the council fulfilling their legal requirements!
