Results day!

So the day has finally arrived. GCSE results day! Lauren has been very calm about the whole thing, where as I have been feeling the nerves bubbling up every now and then!

It was an early start. We had to be at school for 9:00, by the time we got there both our nerves were to pieces!! Lauren meet up with friends, signed in and went to get her results. I patiently waited at the side of the room. She brought the envelope over, she was struggling to open it with the nerves! Once she’d opened it, it took a few seconds to get to the actual results, they weren’t set out particularly well! Finally we found them!


 Lauren’s results were brilliant. We are so proud of her. Over the last two years she’s worked incredibly hard to get these results. She can now happily go to college without the worry of retaking any GCSE’s.



As a little treat Lauren and I had a Toby carvery to celebrate. Alexander was invited but it was to early for him to get up!!

 It was a funny feeling after Lauren received her results. Almost an anticlimax, that was it, all the waiting was over.

I’m so proud of Lauren and very excited for her next step at college. So this week I’ve definitely loved how proud I am of my daughter!

    Well done Lauren! It’s funny reading this brought back those horrible, sick, nervy feelings I had hoped never to experience again. I don’t think I can face going through all this as a parent! #picknmix

    Well done and congratulations to Lauren!!!! I remember being the same with the eldest’s result, it took ages to find them. It is such a blooming relief isn’t it when they are ok? I still get shivers remembering what my own results day was like, so much pressure. Your breakfast looks delicious, I bet Alexander was sorry he didn’t get up in time ha! X
