I too was looking through old posts the other day. Always wondered what happened to Okanagen.
Where has the last 3 years gone? After DD I'll be doing it another twice, don't know how my nerves will be then!
I think last time I made everyone else a bag of nerves too!
Good to have a place like this to come to give and receive advice.
As you say, let's see if we can lighten the mood and have a few laughs along the way!
As I mentioned on another thread. DD was highly amused the other day when I received a McCarthy and Stone leaflet. She's still giggling about it 2 days later!
Firsttimemum, when my DS did 11+ 3 years ago, he sat Birmingham and Warwickshire tests, so we had 2 sets of results to wait for. I recall the Birmingham ones did go out later than planned. I remember the Warwickshire arrived on the Saturday and the Birmingham the following Tuesday.
I remember on the Saturday I was pacing up and down the path for the postman as we seem to be one of the last on his round. When he finally came I was shaking like a leaf opening the Warwickshire letter. I saw DD score and rank and knew he'd be guaranteed KES, went running upstairs to him where he was watching tele, shouting you've done it, you've only gone and done it. There was hardly the blink of an eyelid from him, it was like any other day!
For the Brum one I was at work and kept looking at the clock. I couldn't wait any longer and left work to go home, the results were there. Once again I was shaking like a leaf, on my home in the house, opening the letter. Sigh of relief he got 237!
Just hoping DD can do the same!
