Sorry - not running related but I'm a very happy mum :)

I felt I could post this on here because I don't really 'know' any of you, as opposed to on Facebook where it feels a bit wrong but just want to shout that I'm a very happy mum of a very laid back teenager who has not been at all stressed by his exams (I've been having kittens) who has got a lovely set of GCSE results. Happy day :)

Congratulations and what a relief to get such good news. I've just returned from a celebratory lunch with my 2 grand daughters and I am a very proud grandma.

I'm not sure what's worse - having a child who gets stressed and wound up about exams or one who is so laid back and doesn't bat an eyelid at anything! I'm sure he will be the same for AS levels and A levels too...

Thanks for such lovely comments from you all and even though I don't 'know' you, I feel like I do and it's lovely to have your support not only in my running but also in my most important job as a mum :)

Hooray! I love to hear this (and not just because I'm a high school teacher!) Good for him - and for you because you supported him! :)

Thanks Kreesh, I find being a single parent of two teenage boys with minimal input from their dad quite taxing sometimes, but it feels like all the years of hard work are finally paying off :)

Yes it's a lovely feeling when your siblings begin to achieve things in their lives. Congratulations to your son, well done!

Like you I brought up my 4th child (son) as a single parent for 8 yrs with no input from his mother. He has gone onto University studying Maths and Finance and is currently working for 12 months before finishing his 3rd year and graduation from Uni.

You will have all this to come.......enjoy all the trials and tribulations and be proud of his achievements and yours :)

Well done, that's great to hear!

Congratulations obviously, but don't let him ever forget that 'education is about the journey, not the destination'.
