SHOCKING

spent day in Perth at one of these awful public hospitals... where youngest child has just engaged with the Specialist team... kicking off with 6 weeks intensive speech therapy, the dental team, orthodontics, max fax surgical , ENT and Ed Psych... bone graft, possible pallete graft, then rhinoplasty

Whole place smelt of brand new carpet... had a cheap lunch in the canteen, was seen early... terrible!

over an hour with the speech therapist today .. and you know the cost to me and OH? (we haven't sold our uk house yet)

NOTHING, not a brass razoo nada, nil zilch... as I say .... shocking


(actually i cried when the speech therapist told me it was all free.. becasue i thought we were going to have to contribute serious money towards this and the house really hasn't sold...its better than winning the lottery...)

It is hard work innit No-one said it would be easy. How can laid back be hard work? Bloody lazy.

Good job we understand sarcasm.

I would like to announce that today was a bad day, I passed my medical (well drugs test back tomorrow), the contract came through and my salary is considerably more than I earnt in the UK.

Who do I complain about this to?

Also I have Friday off and I will be getting paid for it, that is against my human rights

(wipes brow) Yes I will.

But for now I am going to make a hot mug of Milo and settle down to watch my Peter Kay Live DVD whilst snuggled up to the cat.

It's a vile job but someone has to do it.

Book me a ticket back to the UK please.
