How I’ve been feeling this week

It’s been a bit up and down this week. And in addition to my own ups and downs I’ve been roller-coastering with my darling Flo who is staying at Oxford University for a few days and had the worst interview in the world this morning followed by a comparatively good one this evening. Of course she can’t help making friends with her fellow comp… candidates and her ‘crew’ at the moment include a boy who co-incidentally she met while sailing on TS Royalist and another boy who rather amusingly she calls ‘Britain’s fourth brainiest child’ as in ‘I had breakfast this morning with Royalist boy and Britain’s fourth brainiest child.’ By the way there is a justification for this, as he really did come fourth in this competition).

Hang in there Julie, probably the worst time for these things too. My granddaughter has just finished her first year doing a science degree and her mother came over to tell me that she had 3 distinctions and a credit but the funny thing was that when they were looking up the results on the net Sarah was saying this doesnt look very good Fenella a C and 3 D's what were you doing!! Only to have it explained that it was only distinctions, credits or percentages.All good especially as Nell had changed subjects half way through and one she got a distinction in said she had no idea what it was about.

Now you know Flo is going to be alright whatever she does. It'll all turn out OK in the end.

Is she trying for Cambridge as well?

Penny it sounds ass though Fenella is doing really well - but a very confusing way of marking!

Katherine, if she doesn't get in it'll be because she's better suited to one of the other great universities she's applied to I'm sure. She isn't trying for Cambridge - you can't apply for both these days
