Well,its been the lull between results and those places being allocated.
I'm bored of it all now.
I hadn't thought of it for a while and now we are in the New Year its on my mind again..I want it over
Hows everyone else doing?
DS1 has said a few times the last few weeks how he hopes he gets Pates(134 on list)and I keep playing it down as I did adore STRS too(so did he)
Turns out he's got this "issue"that he didn't *quite*scrape the golden 120...FGS child...*sigh*yes,yes,Ive told him over and over-but that's "him"also many,many people,children and adults alike,have appeared out of the woodwork saying how the exam wasn't that hard-their child could have passed standing "on their head"but didn't want to etc etc...I'm so not interested really.Why they feel the need to tell me I don't know.Its annoying though as DS1 is doubting his ability,weird,I thought it would have helped that side..has anyone else had similar?I don't understand people.At.All.
Poor child will give himself a coronary by 13 at this rate!How did I breed such a perfectionist
I hope he gets it now,not because its any better than STRS(for him IMO)but just so he can put his demon to bed so to speak!
Hmmm so,that was a ramble...but just thought Id check in with my fellow 11+ers
Those envelopes will pop through the letterbox soon..then we can start to panic that it was all a dream and our LO's will be sat,confused and friendless in the corridor,too scared to enter the hothousey classrooms...
