So... G’s niece, N, did not go missing again. However, at the end of last week she threatened one of her foster carers with a knife and smashed up their car. She was moved to a children’s home about 50 miles away. On Saturday she went out in the little town she was now based in and got drunk, got caught shoplifting alcohol and then kicked a heavily pregnant care worker at the children’s home. Yesterday she was moved to secure accommodation. She didn’t get there until quite late yesterday so we don’t know how she is settling in. Maybe living in a more controlled regime will have a positive effect...
On a lighter note, I was doing some colouring in with my nephew on Sunday and we were talking about when he normally colours in e.g. at nursery and that I don’t really get to colour in any more. He started to question me about this (he is in the “why” phase) and I said I didn’t really know but would ask my boss. Yesterday morning I asked my boss and he didn’t really have a good answer to this question. I may ask for “colouring in” to be one of my objectives in the next reporting year.
