We went off Christmas shopping!
Supposed to be a bit of a distraction, but we had another mum with us who was in serious fretting mode - wonder what she'll be doing now, wonder if she is stuck on any questions, hope she isn't crying, did she have enough water with her etc etc etc ....
DD sat the test in the morning along with one other from her class, then later in the afternoon the two families went off to the West End in the evening for a lovely meal, then a theatre trip - with champagne toasts to the girls (OK, so we had champagne and they had lemonade - but it is the thought that counts)!
This was meant to show that we believed that they had both worked hard (all those practice papers over the summer holidays) and that we were proud of how they had done their best - regardless of the results.
For us, it was important that we recognised the effort, rather than focussing on the final outcome and we did all have a really lovely evening!
