Today was A'level and AS results day, so it was a busy day here...

David's A 'level results are as follows:

Physics B, Chemistry C, Maths C and General Studies B
This was not quite the 3B's he needed for his conditional offer from Sheffield, however after a brief moment of anxiety it was confirmed that he has been accepted there on his course of choice anyway, so that's great news for him!

Matthew's AS results are as follows:

Economics A, Politics A, Sociology A, Maths B and General Studies A
Better than he was expecting I think!

So good news all round really!

Good news too that Chris had his last dose of chemo for this round today and now has a chemo free fortnight before the next block begins. We are taking advantage of this by going to the Isle of Man for a few days from Saturday to Wednesday as a family. We are hoping for good weather and I will try to post some pictures of our time there!

Isle of Man sounds interesting. Is that where Thomas the Tank Engine came from? Good idea to take a break from the savagery of the chemo and wow, didn't the other two get good results! That's great.

Isle of Man wouldn't be my choice, it is too close and too cold for my taste.... but our destination choice is very limited just now and it will be lovely to get away for a few days. Just praying that the weather stays dry and Chris stays well... There's lots of interesting history on the island, looking forward to that...

Really pleased David has got into Sheffield, now he can stsrt making definite plans for September, (well he can as soon as he gets back from Canada!)

Well, I can pray for that too. After the Mass went so well today, I kind of owe God right now!

Is that near you? And is it a particular subject he's studying?

David wants to study chemical physics!!!

Sheffield is southeast of here, but still in northern England (in South Yorkshire). It is a pleasant city and its university has a good reputation. It is about 1 hour and 45 minutes away by car, or about 2 hours by train, that seems like a good distance to me, far enough away for real independence, but not so far that you can't do a return trip in a day if that is necessary sometime!!

Congratulations to David and Matthew. So glad Sheffield have accepted the results - I'm sure he'll enjoy his time there. I've already told you to enjoy IoM and I hope neither the weather nor Chris's health spoil the family holiday!

Well done to everyone. The exams results, the end of block one, the survival and commitment of the parents through it all. That's a lot to be thankful for. Have a wonderful chill out break.Hope the weather improves but either way, I think you'll enjoy it!
