Hello dear friends. I'm just popping in to say hi and to say that we will be going to Ludlow for a few days. We have had a lovely time this week as we have had Anth's sister and husband visiting us from New Zealand. It has been wonderful to see them especially as they are the last of the family to visit us in the UK. Unfortunately the weather has been bad but we haven't let that stop us going out and about.
Yesterday was a big day in my children's life as Tom and Lucy received their A level results. Tom has been offered a place at the lovely university we visited back in March. He is doing a different course but I think it is a more interesting one. Obviously we are so, so pleased for him, and enormously proud of him. It hasn't been an easy year for Tom and we're sure this will be a wonderful start to his adult life. Gosh, my first-born will be flying the nest at the end of September..ahh, I feel ..mmm ..old!
Lucy also did a A level Maths module (a couple of years early as she is still only 15,) and she got 94/100...! A child of mine got an A in Maths. Maths isn't one of my strong points or Anth's either so where she gets it from who knows.
Alice has been staying in Salisbury, with Granny and Poppa for the last 2 weeks. She has been doing a Acting Summer School and tomorrow we will go and watch her perform in King Arthur. We have really missed her and hear that she has been working really hard. Then it's up to Ludlow. I will definitely be opening my shop when I return, and no it isn't a real bricks and mortar affair which some of you have thought, it is only another page of my blog which you will find in my sidebar. I'm sorry if I have confused anyone, perhaps 'shop' is not the right word for it! Oops.
So, I hope the following week is everything you would like it to be and I will be back soon. Go well..
