      Sounds ideal Janet. Wonder what my Kenny will end up doing. He did tech studies Standard Grade and has picked up Product Design this year at Higher...this is his last year.

      Congratulations Janet!! :) That's excellent news :)

       

  2. good luck to my daughter and everyone else getting their GCSE results today. Pity the media have to scaremonger hours before some of them are allowed to collect them - my daughter is a nervous wreck.

      Your theory could explain why I've been reading so much more this year. :)

      It's a cartoon song - it's a bit rude! If you're not too easily offended and Google Amazing Horse, you should find it - it's really catchy. It's a favourite of frankie and Chrissy too!

    3. Janet

      The background of the cartoon is based on Stourhead!
