What do you other mums or dads feel like when you’ve been at home caring full time for your little ones and then SUDDENLY they’re both at school and you’re LOST?

It’s World Mental Health Day today and I’m happy to say I’ve been bowled over this week. Bowled over by the kindness, understanding and support of my little 4yo boy’s state infant school SEN (Special Educational Needs) service.
