I think the quietness is related to everybody trying to have nerves of steel whilst waiting for the results.
My DS has coped really well with the wait (better than me) but he has started to show some nerves during the last few days. He is out tomorrow morning and has put me under strict instructions not to open the envelope if it arrives as he wants to be first to see the news regardless of whether it is positive news or not. I might need to find something to distract me if it does arrive tomorrow whilst he is out
Similar boat, my partner is out with our daughter at a ballet exam, my son is at some school science workshop in Bolton and I'm guessing the post (going off a normal Saturday) will arrive late morning or early afternoon, so I'll be in on my own
He's not expressed a preference so it might be a sneaky peak and then seal it back up or I may just wait until I pick him up again at tea-time, provided his mum hasn't given in to temptation in the meantime
We do tend to get very little post on a Saturday, so I wouldn't be surprised if ours didn't turn up at all tomorrow and came on Monday, just before the Sale results come out
Can't even have a few drinks to calm the nerves as I've got a Half Marathon on Sunday and I tend to stay off the booze for a couple of days beforehand
