Congratulations to your son! My goodness that must have been a nerve racking time, it is bad enough wating for the exam and then the residential. However to have another anxious wait after that must have been very stressful.

Lauradee - absolutely fabulous news! Trust me - it sinks in eventually. My daughter starts in September too - and I still find her doing a little jig of celebration to herself! If your life is anything like mine - you'll have three experiences when you tell people ... the ones who pretend to know Christ's Hospital ... "Oh, er, yes. Gosh. Um. Wow. Lovely. Are you pleased?" Those who clearly don't know CH "He's going into hospital? Oh, I'm so sorry." and those who can simply read you face "you must be thrilled and so proud!" Enjoy! The next level of fun is when you show them a picture of the uniform!
Never underestimate the power of a Mummy!
