    I was hoping id be driving but its obviously not going to happen. I still cant understand roundabouts & when to go when literally no-one indicates & i still cant tell where my car is on the road or how close to things i am - meaning i cant park, merge etc.

    I dont know why i cant do this stuff. Ive lost count of how many lessons ive had. I feel really stupid & like a complete failure.

    Can your husband take him to childcare on the way to work?

    Argh, the old woman next door just rang and said we 'need to do something about our little dog who is barking all night', hubby says ok yes he's barking right now I will go bring him inside but he sleeps in our bedroom so he is not keeping you awake at your claimed 2.30am. She just said well yes he does, well no he does f not he sleeps beside my bed and goes out usually after 6.30am! And anytime in the past I've asked her if she has heard the dog she has said no so wtf is with suddenly deciding he is annoying her.

    So in the short term it sounds like you have four choices:

    Your husband
    Public transport
    Taxis
    Walking

    I'd just look at which is the most viable option. It is what it is - it's where he is going, so try to think positive and make it work for you :-)

    I agree, you might just have to pick the easiest option.

    Why does my toddler have to mess up every. single. room. Formal lounge, dining, family room, our bedroom, hallway, bathroom and her bedroom have toys everywhere. I have just tidied it up while she's asleep and it took me forever, and I'm sure it will take 20 minutes for it to be just as messy when she wakes up!

    I know you said you aren't comfortable with family day care and I'm not sure if there's none available close by or you aren't sure but like yourself I do not drive (at all).

    There are 4 family dare carers within a 10 minute walk of me, I found out just by calling up Wesley mission. Dd's carer also does the school run for her own kids and kids she looks after so one day when it was raining instead of me having to walk to get Dd in the rain she happily offered to drop her off as I was close by and she knew I didn't drive. Maybe I was just lucky but there's no harm in ringing around to see if there is a family day care with a similar routine who might be able to drop your Ds home in the afternoons.

    Edit- I know how isolating it can feel not to drive, I have similar fears as you, however it would be beneficial for you and your Ds to get used to using public transport, I used to find it very overwhelming with a small baby but Dd is used to it and loves it now and I look at it as our ticket to freedom 😉.
