I realise that my blogging is getting a bit sporadic at the moment. Just a crazy busy time at home and work at the moment – even worse than usual!
As well as our paying student, a 16 year old Spanish boy who is really lovely, one of the students we hosted back in March has returned for a visit. This time she is here as a friend as she became best buddies with DD3, bonding over their mutual love for One Direction and Harry Potter. She was an absolute delight as a house guest so we are all pleased to see her back. I am hoping DD3 will pluck up the confidence to pay her a return visit to Italy some time.
We have had the plumber visit twice this week as well. The first time to sort the leak I blogged about before. Then he popped back to repair the shower – the mixer won’t work which means you either get a blast of scalding water or an icy shock! We may be able to find a replacement widget but if we can’t it will have to be a whole new shower 🙁
Despite convincing herself that she had failed all of her GCSEs, DD3 was pleasantly surprised to discover that she is actually really clever, managing 11 As and Bs. My budget didn’t run to a fancy meal out, so we celebrated with a Chinese takeaway and a bottle of Cava, which was great!
Anyone else been waiting on exam results?
