Hi all

Just got a letter today to say that we have been successful in our appeal to get our son into grammar school. :D :D :D. He passed the eleven plus but the school was oversubscribed and we had tried (and failed) to beat the system with tactical preferencing. :roll: .

It has been a very emotional day and the end of a time of great stress and worry.

Thanks to all on this site for making me feel welcome and giving support and advice. I needed you.

I am still keeping my fingers crossed for some of you still going through the process, I will not forget thee friends that I have made here and will continue to visit to see how you get on.

The champagne is open...........

WONDERFUL NEWS LILY!

I am delighted for you and your son, and I hope he will be very happy at his GS.

Well done to you too - relax, and bask in that glorious feeling. 8)

Congratulations! So great to read good news - and on the over subscription front too. I have to confess that I am now petrified! But your story has at least made me smile. Thank you for sharing - it might be so easy to disappear but you had the grace to bring the joy to us to share.

See you in Rehab!
