Congratulations to J

Congratulations to my son James for his A2 results.
A - History, B - ICT & C - RE. Huge sighs of relief (mainly from him) when he opened his confirmation letter for his place at his first choice university, and to his cousin Amanda who also did well.

So tonight, I'll be having a glass (or three) of this, with R, whilst J is out celebrating/commiserating with his friends, one of whom will be going to the same place as he is, which is fun.

I feel quite exhausted after all this and haven't got as far as doing any editing today, although I have been checking flights for him (and me) to go over in September to settle him. It's going to be a lot quieter around here without him.

Great news! You'll miss him - but in a good cause. Not surprised you haven't done any editing, even good news can be stressful. Enjoy the bubbly!

Huge, huge congratulations to James and Amanda. I know that feeling, Debs (and I'm glad it's over!!) - such a fraught time, but now you can celebrate. Cheers!

Anna said...

Fantastic news!! And relief that he's accepted for where he wanted to go. :)))

Definitely enjoy some bubbly! As for NANO... I cannot recommend it highly enough! Great camaraderie besides the writing, hee hee...

Congratulations! Can't believe they still send out results on my birthday ... have a few years til our littlies get to this stage but remember many a party commiserating/celebrating :)

Melissa Marsh said...

How wonderful for him! Will he be going to a university in England, then?

Well done James - brilliant results. One of my best friend's eldest boy got his results too today and he got his place at his first choice Uni - such a huge relief.
Enjoy and celebrate!!

Congratulations to J - and his proud family!

DJ Kirkby said...

Such great news. N2S is on hols in Spain at the mom so we are still waiting to find out his results! TORTURE! Which Uni is J going to?

Debs said...

pat - many thanks.

dj - no! Poor you having to wait. J is off to Reading (it's okay for me to say this here as we have different surnames).

Carol said...

Just brilliant news!!! You must be really proud of him :-)

Ps. We're not very far from Reading so if you ever need anything for him just give us a shout :-)

Debs said...

carol - many thanks. You made me feel so much better when he was in Thailand too, by saying you were there if we ever needed you. Much appreciated. x

Susie Vereker said...

Many congrats, great news.

Debs said...

susie - thank you. It's such a relief for him, although it's going to be strange not seeing him for so many weeks at a time.
