We thought it was going to be the opportunity of a life time.
Monday evening ET was feeling disheartened. He didn't believe he could do it, he felt he was too shy to talk to adults on the phone. We had a long heart to heart, I did my best to build up his confidence, to encourage him to believe in himself, be positive.
Tuesday morning he phoned me to let me know that he had met the guy for a lift into work to be told that they had decided they didn't need an extra person they could manage without him.
He was a little relieved but mostly he was upset.
He didn't have a chance to see if he could get the hang of what they wanted. He is not stupid he is a bright lad, just very shy.
So now we start again
