Is it just me or is anyone else finding the run of open days and evenings thoroughly exhausting??
At our first evening one, (having queued in the street for about half hour), there was not room for us in the 'talk' so we had to do our tour first. By the time we had been seated in the over-bearingly hot hall I felt like it was midnight, not 7.30! By the time we finally got out of there & picked up poor DS2 at 8.30 who was by then equally exhausted I was shattered.
Felt a day time one would be much better, thoroughly enjoyed Headmaster's talk & dutifully began to tour the school on the 'approximately 35 minutes' tour ... 1 HOUR AND 40 MINUTES LATER
, we happened to pass our car and made an escape.
DS looks tired tonight too, I'm not surprised
I'm feeling sooo glad we decided to book a half-term holiday way back when our 11+ journey began, we're all going to need it.
What are your open day stories, good or bad?
