Again, so many memories, so we will go for two of them now:

1. This used to be a bad memory, but now I think it is funny. I remember you getting very upset with one of your exam results because you thought it was such a very bad mark. From memory I think you had got less than the usual 90+ mark and to top it all you had only come second and not first. You were very upset, and I remember thinking that I would be really pleased with such a mark as I had only passed the 45% mark by a couple of points. We went out on the school field, but I didn't know what to say to console you.

2. A happier memory, so many of those to choose from - but this one is the winner this morning. When you came to visit me in New Ferry, when Ben was just a few weeks old, and David and Matthew were with you. It was so comforting to me to have you back in my life after such a turmoil I had been through. It was only a short visit for you back to the UK, but it was so the right time for me to see you. I have some photos of the visit. You are holding Ben and David and Matthew are wearing matching navy and white outfits.

(Looking forward to David being home before Christmas)

Re: memories
I would love to see those photos sometime, I don't think I have any of that day, and those quick visits to see friends when we were home were always very precious. It still seems strange that I have all the time in the world to see people here now!

As I say to David below, I still have impossibly high expectations, but am now old enough (and wise enough?) to know just how unrealistic I am sometimes.

I am so looking forward to David being here too.

Speaking of results, I'm a bit miffed about only getting third in Science. Everyone says I should be proud, but I think I could have done better. I blame the toaster assessment.

You must be your mother's son, I was only ever happy if I was the best, that's still true now!
