The Joys of Parenthood

Today was a very special day in the Crook household. Holly, my daughter, was one of thousands of students up and down the country going to collect her A Level results. She came away with an A Star, an A and a B grade for the three subjects she took.

Am I a ridiculously proud and teary-eyed, sentimental and smug grinning old duffer? You bet I am!

Many, many congratulations to my darling daughter - you have made mum and I so proud!

Hi Alastair,

Many thanks old chap - and very best wishes in advance to your son! It is a nerve-shredding wait for sure.

All the best,

Hi Paul,

Cheers old chap! We are so proud of her - especially as she managed to dislocate her knee only a couple of weeks before sitting her final exams. She just got on with it, crutches and all.

Drop me a line off piste as we have not had a catch up for ages.

All the best,

DC

A very good haul from the qualifications chest. I hope that gives her enough to get the job/university she wants.

Hi Sydney,

Many thanks indeed old chap! It was all Holly's work and so the praise rightly belongs to her.

Congratulations indeed. I can remember the stress of the day for us last year!

David Crook said...

Hi Legatus,

For a whole pile of reasons it was a magnificent effort as Holly had to contend with a number problesm along the way.

It all turned out well though at the end!

All the best,

DC
