Bored, bored, bored.....

Work is boring if you don't work there! I had very little to do taday. I finished up some stuff from yesterday (which was only outstanding because I spent half of yesterday gossiping), then tidied up a bit, then wandered around, checked my blog, tried to work out how to do various things on our iffy computer system, ambled around a bit more, took some phone calls, made some decisions i am not qualified or authorised to make, gossiped, drank coffee, shuffled papers, wandered around a gossiped a bit more!

This is mostly because solicitors are a bit thin on the ground, so no new work has been passed on to us since yesterday morning! It's not that there was nothing to do, but nothing i was able/authorised to do! i did try to get a bit more computer access, but it won't turn up till Monday! Office manager colleague is off this week, so couldn't show me how to do any of the general office procedures that always need doing, so i was bored, bored, bored.

time passes slowly when you've got nothing to do. I'd rather be busy!

Aggie had a pointless work medical today. Pointless because the Dr didn't actually bother to ask him anything or examine him in any way. I doubt she'll bother to get reports from Aggie's consultants. she just saw a 36 year old white man & decided he' s just fine! How can she possibly know how all his ickiness affects him at work if she doesn't ask? Or listen when he tries to tell her? What's the point of sending him to that type of medical? Grrrr!

Mstr A apparently wore his ghost costume for the whole party & had a great time. But he is a bit upset that he's so rubbish at physical activity. "I'm the slowest in the whole school" he wailed:-( I've tried to suggest he needs to practise to get better, but he is not keen to try, and certainly not to keep trying. Of course, were he allowe to cycle to school, that would give him a great boost! but as it is I think I'm going to have to start looking around for different sports activities for him to try. the problam is, at 6, he's too young for many things. Anyone got any good ideas? Nothing involving teamwork, or ball skills.

We're off to Brighton tomorrow morning at silly o'clock, to visit my sister for the weekend. Aggie is staying home to play bows and arrows with his little friends:-) It should be a quiet weekend hopefully:-)

    how about trampolining? a few kids with asd i know have had great success with martial arts as it focus' them, complies with the order, following routine, individual but focussed and theres many small achievements to be made.

    The children next door loved karate, and did very well at it from a young age.

    A lot children with psych disorders love horse riding - something about being at one with the animal.

    He's a little young yet, but my brother (the mentally ill one) became hooked on weight training, for the endorphin buzz.

    How about running? Athletics? He doesn't have to feel he's in a team...he could do track - or long/high jump, or javelin?

    does he swim? cos it's such great all round exercise. pools can be nasty noisy places, though.
