Oh my word! A'level exam results day dawned today! i had watched my daughter getting a little more anxious over the last few days although she had not said anything. we have always told her, and her brothers, that whatever their results we would be pleased because we know they had tried! but even though i had told her this many times i could see she was getting a little stressed!
luckily she had a driving lesson first thing this morning so that helped take her mind off things, as she could not get her results from school until 10.30. i picked her up and off we went, i said in the car that her dad and me would be proud of her whatever happened, and i had already given her a gift before she got her results because she had worked so hard. that was it, we were both in tears - not good when you are driving - and that was before we got to school.!
we got to school and could see lots of her friends were going in to get their results and she just wanted to go in and get them and look at them by herself for a few minutes. i sat in the car and waited.....and waited.....! I saw her come out briefly and could see she had been crying and then a friend put his arm round her shoulder and i thought, oh my god and in my head i had mentally got the 'never mind, there's more to life' speech! she disappeared again and then about five minutes later came back to the car - i had no fingernails left!
she was smiling! she got in the car and told me her results
A in psychology
B in english
C in sports studies
C in general studies
well as you can imagine that was us off again, more hugs and tears! lots of phone calls to dad and grandparents and friends.
what a morning! i am just soooooo proud of her.
well i'll stop going on now but i just had to let it all out!
nb: am just finishing painting hen house and hens arrive on sat - will do some pics soon!
