My DS is being considered for an academic scholarship ( they are doing the exams this week and did some last week before the snow disrupted everything).
However, for 8 days over Christmas we had no gas hence no central heating. And for periods of up to 12 hours we had no electricity 3 times too!
We had to go and stay in a hotel twice to get warm and have a shower. Of course this completely mucked up DS's revision.
I contacted the admissions lady at DS's school and she was very sympathetic and said that I should put all this in a letter to the headmaster which I have just done. But - does it seem whingey or as if I am trying to excuse him if he doesn't do well enough?
Looking for opinions before I post the letter- thanks!
