What A Star!

25 Aug

The Thinker

Spud just phoned with his GCSE results (just six; he is in Year 10.  More next year):

  • Three A*s
  • One A
  • Two Bs

One of the Bs was for Classics and he is disappointed – so has decided to re-sit it.

We are so proud of him – whatever the results, he worked hard to get them, and that’s what matters.

    Cheers and thrice cheers
    for those teenage dears
    who reward their parents’ care
    with sparkling success and flair.

    Super, and well done to him for not being prepared to settle for a quite respectable mark in something he feels he can do even better in!

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
