Great : )

Little H's is the night of her last exam, and the day before her trial day at 6th Form college...

Jane, I cannot fathom why the school held the prom before the exams. They held the Prom on a Thursday night then the leavers assembly the next morning with the warning anyone not in full uniform will be summarily executed. Why they think they should apply the uniform rule to a bunch of *leavers* is a mystery to me but I have learned never to question anything the teaching profession comes up with. A more defensive and paranoid bunch it is impossible to meet. My apologies to any teachers out there but my husband came out of teaching 2 years ago and not because of the pupils. DD is going in to their 6th form in September although she did consider other options. With us here in such a rural area it is a matter of not where you want to go but if you can get there!

Yes D doesn't time fly! But it's been a wonderful journey and we're still all together :)

Thanks Lou, thanks MaggieD. We're all getting older even our children. The line bursting towards tomorrow comes from the extremely sentimental song Sand and Water which was written after the writers husband died young. The verse:

*All alone, I heal this heart of sorrow
All alone, I raise this child
Flesh and bone, he's just
Bursting towards tomorrow
And his laughter fills my world, and wears your smile...*

That line *flesh and bone he's just bursting towards tomorrow...* sums up teenagers so well and I've used it on photos of DD elsewhere.

Song here, a little too sentimental for my taste, but whatever gets you through the bad times...

Oh, and I thought of you Maggie this week when that lovely young man Stephen Sutton died. I was reminded of Alex's youth and courage, it's been some years now hasn't it? I do hope his parents continue well x

Thank you for your kind thoughts. Jenny and family are all well, and like many others who knew Alex, they do feel a connection to Stephen and his family.
