Our bank accounts have never had so much exercise as they have this week… Hubby finally called the RAC to get his car going. It has sat on the drive since March last year. On Tuesday we took it to a garage for it’s service/mot and there it has stayed. Hopefully we get it back today but oh my, the bill is expensive.
Madam turns 14 on Sunday! starting off a month of birthdays including Sir and Hubby. To be fair she hasn’t asked for a lot but she did want Nanny and Grandad to come over for a birthday lunch, and could she have a buffet. The resulting food bill was expensive.
The kids and I went to Actual Shops yesterday. Sir wanted to go into a well known craft shop and I ended up spending more money… then Madam wanted to visit a toy shop.. they spent their own money in there!
We found out that when Sir turns 18 he will technically be responsible for his own money and that if we want to look after it we will need to apply to the Court of Protection. A quick Google search reveals this is rather an expensive process.. so I’m going to contact various agencies and people for further advice. A post ranting about stressful, pro longed, complicated and expensive processes that need to be followed in order to help learning disabled people will follow I’m sure.
Oh and the ensuite loo has broken. Hopefully that won’t be too expensive to fix….
